Fiscal Year

The fiscal year of the corporation shall begin the _____________ day of ____________________ in each year.



Section 1. Membership will be limited to those who obtain the organization's services, acquire a tangible interest in its assets in proportion to the business done with the organization and have a voice in its management.

Section 2. Every person (which word as used herein includes any legal entity) who is a record owner of a fee or undivided fee interest, or having a substantial possessory interest, in a property served by the water system may become a member of the corporation upon signing such applications and agreements for the purchase of water as may be provided and required by the corporation and upon the payment of such connection fee as may be imposed by the board of directors provided that only one membership at a time may be held for each property served. A single membership may be issued to all persons owning or having a substantial possessory interest in the property. Only one membership may be held with respect to property at one time. The board of directors shall cause to be issued appropriate certificates of membership, provided that membership shall not be denied because of the applicant's race, color, creed, sex, age, marital status, or national origin. Membership may be denied if capacity of the corporation's water system is exhausted by the need of its existing members, or, if the proposed use of the applicant is such that it would interfere with existing uses previously authorized by the board of directors.
A. A substantial possessory interest is one where the person or persons have a legal right to control and occupancy of a property but do not have the legal or the equitable ownership of the property. It may be under a lease or similar right to possession.
(1) Before membership is allowed to one or more persons claiming such an interest, the corporation will endeavor to obtain the application for membership from the owner of such property.

(Guide 4) (Page 3) RD Instruction 1942-A

(2) Where membership is granted to one or more persons having a substantial possessory interest, the corporation, as a condition to the membership, may require such applicant to post such collateral or bond as the directors determine necessary to fully protect the corporation from any additional risk that may be involved to the corporation by reason of the lack of legal ownership in the applicant.
Section 3. Each member shall have only one membership for each property served, regardless of the number of service connections the member may obtain to serve the property. Each membership certificate shall represent one vote. When more than one person holds the interest in a property served, the vote shall be exercised by the person in whose name the certificate is registered or by such person as the several persons may designate, but in no event shall more than one vote be cast with respect to any property.
Section 4. Membership shall be transferable but the transfer will be effective only when noted on the books of the corporation. Such transfer will be made only to a person who obtains a qualifying interest in the property. A member will transfer membership in the corporation to a successor in interest as part of the transaction whereby the member disposes of any interest to said property. The secretary, upon request, will make note of such transfer upon the records of the corporation but need not issue a new certificate to the successor in interest of the previous existing member.
Section 5. When membership in the corporation is not transferred, it shall terminate upon the disposition or other termination of the member's interest in the property, regardless of whether or not the certificate is surrendered to the corporation. Membership also may be terminated by action of the board of directors where the use of the property is changed so as to materially increase the amount of water consumed to the prejudice of other existing members or to the prejudice of the orderly operation of the system.
Section 6. Termination of membership will not result in forfeiture of the former member's rights and interest in the organization's assets and the former member will not be precluded from receiving a proportionate share of any subsequent distribution of such assets by the organization.
Section 7. The termination of the membership of any member shall not disqualify for membership any other person who has or obtains an interest in the property of the terminated member and who otherwise meets the requirements of these bylaws.

Section 8. In the event a member's property interest is divested other than by voluntary means, such member's membership will pass to the trustee, receiver, executor, or the like who will be entitled either in person or through a designated representative to exercise all of the rights incident to such membership, but subject to such duties and liabilities also applicable to the membership. The trustee, receiver, executor, or the like, may terminate such membership by written notice to such effect delivered or mailed to the secretary of the corporation. Upon the final disposition of such property rights, the owner thereof shall be entitled to membership in like manner as if the membership had been transferred to the owner by the original member as set forth in Section 4 above.
Section 9. Upon the transfer of a membership, the corporation will not look to the successor in interest for the payment of any past due amounts. The corporation will seek collection only from the individual who incurred such charges or assessments or from the property itself if a judgment lien had been duly perfected against such property.
