If public facilities are not available for a watershed district's principal place of business within the watershed district, the board shall determine and designate the nearest suitable public facility as the watershed district's principal place of business.
(a) The managers may initiate a change of the principal place of business to a different location within the watershed district by passing a resolution stating the proposed change of location. After passing the resolution, the managers must set a time and location for a hearing on the change of the principal place of business.

Notice of the hearing must be mailed to the auditors of counties affected by the watershed district ten days before the hearing. After the hearing, the managers may, by order, change the place of business.
(c) The change of the principal place of business of the watershed district is effective when a certified copy of the managers' order is filed with the secretary of state and the board.
