Ordinance 18-008

An Ordinance Amending Article III of Chapter 42
of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Brookings, South Dakota
and pertaining to the Brookings Health System.


Be It Ordained and Enacted by the Council of the City of Brookings, State of South Dakota, as follows:

I.
Section 1. That Division 1 of Chapter 42, Section 42-92 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Brookings be amended in its entirety to read as follows:

DIVISION 1. GENERALLY
Sec. 42-92. – Name, composition, appointment and criteria for appointment.
a) The board of trustees is known as the "Brookings Health System Board of Trustees", and consists of nine members.

b) Five members of the board of trustees shall be appointed by the mayor with the advice and consent of the city council. Three members of the board of trustees shall be appointed by the Brookings County Commission. A minimum of six members of the board of trustees must reside in the City or County of Brookings.

c) One member of the board of trustees shall be a practicing physician representative who is a member of the active medical staff of the Brookings Health System and who has been a member of the active medical staff for at least one year. Physician representatives of the board of trustees shall have all of the voting privileges as other members of the board of trustees, and are not required to reside within the City or County of Brookings.

d) Individuals recommended to the city council or to the county commission to serve as members of the board of trustees shall evidence an interest in fostering and maintaining a system of quality health care through support of the mission of the Brookings Health System. The City and County shall also consider, but are not required to appoint, prospective board members recommended by the board of trustees. Prospective board members who are recommended by the board of trustees shall be recommended to represent a particular experience and expertise which would enhance the composition and effectiveness of the board of trustees. In order to fill vacancies in a timely manner, the applications of prospective board members shall be submitted to the City and County by October 30th each year.

e) The physician members may be asked at times to recuse themselves if there is a conflict of interest with their particular practice or contractual or other issues under discussion. Advice from physician representatives is particularly needed to provide information from their medical background that would be beneficial to the needs of the Brookings Health System, and, in addition, to represent the members of the active medical staff of the Brookings Hospital.

f) Appointment to the board of trustees shall be made without reference to actual or perceived race, color, sex, creed, ancestry, national origin, familial status, marital status, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or political affiliation.

II.
That Division 1 of Chapter 42, Section 42-93 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Brookings be amended in its entirety to read as follows:

DIVISION 1. GENERALLY
Sec. 42-93. – Compensation; terms.
a) The members of the board of trustees may be compensated for their service as members of the board of trustees in an amount not to exceed $300.00 per month per member and $400.00 per month for the president.

In addition, members of the board of trustees will be reimbursed for reasonable expenses when performing Brookings Health System business. The members of the board of trustees shall be appointed for staggered three-year terms. New members shall be appointed prior to January 1st of each year. No members may serve more than three consecutive 3-year terms. A partial term may be served in addition to this limit.

b) If a board member resigns or is disqualified prior to the end of their term, the city or the county, as the case may be, shall appoint a new board member to complete the departing board member’s term following a process similar to that for a regular appointment. The city or county, as the case may be, shall communicate a deadline for submission of recommended candidates for the new appointment to the board of trustees.

c) If a member is absent more than 50 percent of the meetings annually without authorization of the board, the member shall automatically be disqualified from serving on the board, and a replacement shall be appointed.

III.

Any or all ordinances in conflict herewith are hereby repealed.
