Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Township Code. Provides that a township that: (1) is within a coterminous, or substantially coterminous, village; (2) is located within a county with a population of 3 million or more; and (3) contains a territory of more than 2 and less than 3 square miles shall be eligible to discontinue and abolish a township organization within a coterminous municipality. Amends the Public Health District Act. Provides that the coterminous municipality that assumes the rights, powers, duties, and obligations of a discontinued coterminous township shall have the municipality's Council members or corporate authorities serve as the board of health for the public health district under the Act.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following change: Provides that the question of dissolving the township organization shall be submitted to the voters of the township upon adoption of an ordinance by the board of trustees of the township (instead of upon adoption of an ordinance by the corporate authorities of the coterminous village).
