Any member may be removed by the appointing authority for neglect of duty, misconduct, or malfeasance in office after being given a written statement of reasons and an opportunity to be heard. Notwithstanding the expiration of the term of office of any member, he shall continue to serve until his successor shall have been appointed, but any delay in appointing a successor shall not extend the term of the successor. The members of the commission shall serve without compensation, except for their actual and necessary expenses while in performance of duties prescribed under this article."
