Board members shall not be compensated for their service as directors. However, it is recognized that Board members should be reimbursed for their expenses of attendance at Board-designated meetings; and, further, it is recognized that the Board of Health is composed of individuals who reside throughout the jurisdiction of the Snohomish Health District and have unique circumstances relative to such expenses. Furthermore, there is an administrative cost in processing individual and distinct vouchers for expense reimbursement. Therefore, Board members shall be reimbursed a flat fee designated as a reimbursement for travel, meal and incidental expenses, not as compensation, but as a uniform reimbursement pursuant to the basic voucher system established by the Executive Secretary to be paid from the appropriate fund. Such flat fee shall be established by Board action.
