A.    The director may appoint a division council within any division of the department, and shall appoint an animal services division council and a weights and measures services division council, consisting of representatives of the various industries and commodities regulated by those divisions. Any such organization may request representation on the respective division council, but the actual appointments to the division council are at the discretion of the director.

Members of division councils serve without compensation but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and other expenses as provided by law. Each division council shall select a chairman and vice-chairman from among its members. Division councils are public bodies for purposes of title 38, chapter 3, article 3.1. Each division council shall assist and make recommendations to the associate director of the division regarding the administration and implementation of the various programs within the division. The associate director shall make a written response to the division council within fifteen days to each formal recommendation made by the council.
