Board of road commissioners: Creation

  • oaths and terms of members
  • duties.


If the board of county highway commissioners shall decide not to appoint a county road supervisor for the county, the board may, at its option, create a board of road commissioners for each district. The board of road commissioners shall consist of one to three members.


The boundaries of the districts may be fixed by the board of county highway commissioners, and road commissioners may be elected in the same manner as in the case of township officers.


Road commissioners shall hold office until their successors are duly elected or appointed, and qualified, and shall take and subscribe to the constitutional oath of office before entering upon their duties.


A board of road commissioners shall:


Exercise the duties of the county road supervisor.


Have supervision over all road work within its district, and may appoint whomever the board may choose to do the work.


All vouchers shall be signed by at least a majority of the road commissioners and allowed as in the usual course of claims against the county, but, except as otherwise provided in NRS 403.575, no board of road commissioners shall contract for any amount of work in excess of the funds set aside for such district by the board of county commissioners unless in case of an emergency when, by order of the board of county commissioners, a larger amount may be expended.


The board of county commissioners shall set aside for each road district the sums of money apportioned for each road district at the first meeting of the board in January, or as soon thereafter as possible.
