however, members may be appointed for staggered
terms varying from one to three years (Code 1957,
Art. 66B, sec. 4.07).

Commercial District Management Authority: The
county governing body specifies the membership,
organization, jurisdiction, and geographical limits
of the Authority. The Authority's purpose, deter-
mined by the county governing body, includes at
least one of the following for the commercial

of security, maintenance, or amenities (Code 1957,

Historic District Commission: Appointed by the
governing body of the county or Baltimore City.
The Commission consists of from three to seven

ban design, or other relevant fields. Members serve
three-year terms and may be reappointed (Code
1957, Art. 66B, sec. 8.03).

Sanitary Commission: Appointed by the governing
body of the county. The Commission consists of
three members who serve six-year terms, one term
expiring every two years. In Allegany County the

for four-year terms. In Dorchester and Kent
counties membership may be enlarged to five
persons. In Garrett and Somerset counties the
Commission has five members (Code 1957, Art.
43, sec. 649).

Economic Development Commission: Appointed
by resolution of the local governing authority.

Agricultural (Land) Preservation Advisory Board:
Appointed by the county governing body. Each

At least three members must be commercial farm

tural Land Preservation Foundation (Code Agri-

Scenic or Wild Rivers Local Advisory Board:
Appointed by the Scenic and Wild Rivers Review
Board with the advice and consent of the local
governing body. The local governing body may
establish a scenic river advisory board for each
designated scenic or wild river within its jurisdic-

tion. For those rivers that flow through one county
only, the Board consists of two county residents
who own land contiguous to the river (except for
the Youghiogheny River where land owned must
be contiguous to that portion of the river between
Millers Run and the southern corporate limits of
Friendsville), two who do not own such land, one
representative of the local governing body, and two
members of the soil conservation district. For those
local Boards in which the river flows through more
than one county, each Board consists of no more
than two residents of each county through which
the scenic or wild river flows who own land
contiguous to the river, two who do not own such
land, two representatives of the local governing
body of the county through which the river flows,
and one representative of each soil conservation
district. Members select their own chairperson
(Code Natural Resources Article, sec. 8^403).

Garrett, Queen Anne's, Somerset, and Worcester
counties the Board of County Commissioners, ex
officio, constitutes the Roads Board. In Wicomico
County the County Council, ex officio, constitutes

Board consists of five members appointed by the
Commissioners for five-year staggered terms, with
one County Commissioner serving as an ex officio,
non-voting member. In Carroll, Harford, and
Washington counties, the County Commissioners
are responsible for county roads, but no specific
legislation constitutes them a Roads Board. In
Anne Arundel, Howard, Prince George's, Mont-
gomery, and Wicomico counties, Departments of
Public Works have charge of roads and are
responsible to the County Council. In Baltimore
County the line of authority runs to the County
Administrative Officer, and thence to the County
Executive. In Calvert, Cecil, Charles, Kent, St.
Mary's, and Talbot counties, the State Roads
Commission takes care of county roads (Code
