The board of supervisors may appoint a public guardian to fill the office and provide for appointment to the subordinate positions.
In appointing the public guardian, the board of supervisors may give preference to the person or agency providing public guardian services in each county. No person or agency shall be designated as public guardian whose agency functions present real conflict with the functions of conservatorship investigation or administration.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
