27.The one-third or other nearest number to retire during the first and second years ensuing the first ordinary meeting of proprietors shall, unless the members of the Committee agree among themselves, be determined by ballot.
28.In any subsequent year the one-third or other nearest number who have been longest in office shall retire.
29.A retiring member of the Committee shall be eligible for re-election.
30.The proprietors at the general meeting at which any members of the Committee retire in manner aforesaid shall fill up the vacant office by nominating a like number of members.
31.If, at any meeting at which the nomination of members of the Committee ought to take place, the places of the vacating members are not filled up, the meeting shall stand page 8adjourned till the same day in the next week at the same time and place; and if at any such adjourned meeting such places are not filled up, the vacating members of the Committee or such of them as have not had their places filled up shall continue in office until the ordinary meeting in the next year, and so on from time to time until their places are filled up.
32.Nomination to any casual vacancy occurring in the Committee may be made by the Committee at a meeting thereof specially called for the purpose, and the Court shall appoint accordingly; but any person so appointed shall retain office so long only as the vacating member of the Committee would have retained the same if no vacancy had occurred.
33.The proprietors in general meeting may, by resolution, remove any member of the Committee before the expiration of his period of office, and may nominate another person in his stead. The person so nominated shall, when appointed by the Court, hold office during such time only as the member of the Committee in whose place he is appointed would have held the same if he had not been removed.
