"A local public body, by bylaw or other legal instrument by which the local public body acts,
(a) must designate a person or group of persons as the head of the local public body for the purposes of the Act,
(b) may authorize any person to perform any duty or exercise any function under this Act of the person or group of persons designated as the head of the local public body, and

The Secretary-Treasurer, Chief Accountant and Director of Instruction are authorized to issue procedures required to support the district's administration of the Act.
