Upon its being so declared by judicial determination;

Upon the determination of the appointing authority that, in violation of lawful residency requirement, such officer no longer resides within the corporate limits of the local unit or other designated territorial area;
In the case of a member of a board, council, commission, authority or other agency, whenever the member, without being excused by a majority of the authorized members of such body, fails to attend and participate at meetings of such body for a period of six consecutive weeks, or for three consecutive regular meetings, whichever shall be of longer duration, at the conclusion of such period, provided that such body shall notify the appointing authority in writing of such determination; provided, further, that such board, committee, commission, authority or other agency may refuse to excuse only with respect to those failures to attend and participate which are not due to legitimate illness;
