65. The Council shall appoint a director general, a secretary and a treasurer. It shall also appoint, in accordance with the Act respecting municipal taxation (chapter F-2.1), an assessor who shall be the director of the valuation department.
The appointment of the director general requires a two-thirds majority of the votes cast.
The Council, by by-law, may define such of their duties as are not defined by this act. The Council, if it deems it expedient, may appoint a single person to fill the offices of secretary and treasurer. In such case the officer filling such offices shall then be known as the secretary-treasurer, and he shall have the same rights, powers and privileges, and shall be liable to the same obligations and penalties as those determined and prescribed for such offices.
However, the Council shall fix their salaries and their other conditions of employment.
The Council may also appoint an assistant director general, an assistant secretary and an assistant treasurer to replace the persons whose assistants they are whenever such persons are absent, unable to act or refuse to act or where their positions are vacant.
No person may be appointed permanently to fill any position contemplated in this section or in section 66 if he remains a member of the Council of the Community or of the council of a municipality in the territory of the Community or an officer or employee of such a municipality.
