They shall adopt an official seal with which all contracts of the district shall be authenticated. The president shall preside at all meetings of the board and in his or her absence the vice-president shall preside. All contracts of the district shall be signed by the president or vice-president, attested by the secretary and authenticated by the official seal of the district. All transactions and proceedings of the board of directors shall be entered in a journal to be kept for the purpose of recording all official acts, resolutions, orders and enactments of the board, which shall be open to public inspection. The treasurer of the district shall at the cost of the district furnish surety bond in such amount as may be ordered by the board of directors and approved by it, conditioned that he or she will pay, according to law, all moneys which shall come to his or her hands as treasurer and will render a just and true account thereof whenever required by the board of directors or by any provision of law, and shall deliver over to his or her successor in office or to any other person authorized by law to receive the same, all moneys, books, papers and other things appertaining thereto or belonging to said office.
