Special Districts are created either by Resolution of the Board of County Commissioners, by Petition of local landowners or by the State Board of Agriculture through a Petition of landowners. All of the above require public notification and some may require a referendum. The method of creation is determined by the type of District. WY Statute: 22-29-103
Special District Board members are elected not appointed. Ad Valorem Taxes may be levied for funding upon voter approval.
