The Director shall establish appeals boards to consider and determine appeals brought by persons aggrieved by decisions of hearing examiners. The Director shall appoint to each appeals board one employee of the Department of Transportation, one attorney from a list of practicing and willing attorneys submitted by the District of Columbia Bar or, if no such list is submitted, from a list compiled by the Director and one citizen from a list of willing citizens compiled and kept by the Director.

All members of appeals boards shall receive reimbursement for actual expenses incurred. The Director shall designate employees of the Department to assist the appeals boards and shall provide such facilities and supplies as are necessary to enable the appeals boards to carry out their functions.
