DIKING DISTRICTS - COMMISSIONERS - COMPENSATION INCREASE WITHIN TERM OF OFFICE - ELECTION OF - DECLARATIONS OF CANDIDACY - FILING - FEES
DIKING DISTRICTS ‑- COMMISSIONERS ‑- COMPENSATION INCREASE WITHIN TERM OF OFFICE ‑- ELECTION OF ‑- DECLARATIONS OF CANDIDACY ‑- FILING ‑- FEES

(1) The increase in compensation for diking district commissioners provided by RCW 85.04.400 (chapter 30, Laws of 1951), which was approved February 28, 1951, but which had no emergency clause and therefore did not become effective until 90 days after approval, does not apply to diking commissioners whose terms of office began prior to the effective date of the act, even though such commissioners were elected and took office after the passage and approval of the act.(2) That candidates for the office of diking commissioners should file their declarations of candidacy with the board of diking commissioners but are not required to pay a filing fee.
