district shall not be a member of the Board. The Board shall also have the power to employ such legal, technical, or other
assistance as may be necessary to conduct the affairs of the District, but in no event shall the employment of any
assistance authorized in this Section obligate the District beyond the amount of its available funds or reasonable revenue
expectancy.
