There is hereby established in any county having a population of more than one hundred thousand (100,000) and not more than one hundred sixty thousand (160,000) and any county having a population of more than three hundred thousand (300,000) a personnel advisory board to consist of the following members: (1) The county auditor; (2) the county engineer; (3) the director of the county hospital; (4) a representative of the district court to be appointed by the board of county commissioners; and (5) any other elected county officer, or representative of such office, to be appointed by the board of county commissioners.
