Limits the calling of specified meetings upon the request of the supervisor or any 2 board members to meetings for the sole purpose of compliance with the requirement to examine and audit township and road district accounts. Provides for notice requirements for board members and that public notice of the meeting shall be provided in the same manner as special meetings of the board. Effective immediately.
