    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Public Officer Prohibited Activities Act is
amended by changing Section 1 as follows:
    (50 ILCS 105/1)  (from Ch. 102, par. 1)
    Sec. 1. County board. No member of a county board, during
the term of office for which he or she is elected, may be
appointed to, accept, or hold any office other than (i)
chairman of the county board or member of the regional planning
commission by appointment or election of the board of which he
or she is a member, (ii) alderman of a city or member of the
board of trustees of a village or incorporated town if the
city, village, or incorporated town has fewer than 1,000
inhabitants and is located in a county having fewer than 50,000
inhabitants, or (iii) trustee of a forest preserve district
created under Section 18.5 of the Conservation District Act,
unless he or she first resigns from the office of county board
member or unless the holding of another office is authorized by
law. Any such prohibited appointment or election is void. This
Section shall not preclude a member of the county board from
being appointed or selected to serve as (i) selected or from
serving as a member of a County Extension Board as provided in
Section 7 of the County Cooperative Extension Law, (ii) as a
member of an Emergency Telephone System Board as provided in
Section 15.4 of the Emergency Telephone System Act, (iii) a
member or as appointed members of the board of review as
provided in Section 6-30 of the Property Tax Code, or (iv) a
public administrator or public guardian as provided in Section
13-1 of the Probate Act of 1975. Nothing in this Act shall be
construed to prohibit an elected county official from holding
elected office in another unit of local government so long as
there is no contractual relationship between the county and the
other unit of local government. This amendatory Act of 1995 is
declarative of existing law and is not a new enactment.
