Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

65 ILCS 5/5-2-1

    (65 ILCS 5/5-2-1) (from Ch. 24, par. 5-2-1)
    Sec. 5-2-1. If a city or village adopts the managerial form of municipal government and also elects to choose alderpersons or trustees, as the case may be, from wards or districts, then the city council shall be constituted as provided in Sections 5-2-2 through 5-2-10 and the village board shall be constituted as provided in Section 5-2-11 and the incumbent alderpersons, trustees, mayor, president, clerk and treasurer shall continue in office until expiration of their present terms. If a city has voted to elect only one alderperson from each ward then no election for a successor for the alderperson from each ward whose term next expires shall be held, and upon the expiration of the terms of the alderpersons having the longest time to serve at the time of adoption of this Article 5 only one successor shall be elected from each ward. In case a city votes to elect only one alderperson from each ward, the number of alderpersons prescribed by Section 5-2-2 shall be halved, for the purposes of this Article 5 and the provisions of Section 5-2-4 prescribing the number of wards shall not apply but such city shall have an equal number of wards and alderpersons. The mayor of a city and the president of a village board shall be elected from the city or village at large.
