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.

The city council shall fix the salaries of all officers, except those who are elected or appointed for a definite term fixed by statute, in the annual appropriation ordinance and those salaries shall not be altered during the same fiscal year. The city council, by ordinance other than the appropriation ordinance, shall fix the compensation of each officer who is elected or appointed for a definite term fixed by statute and his salary shall not be increased or diminished during his term of office. The chairman of the finance committee of the city council shall receive in addition to his or her salary as an alderperson such additional compensation, not exceeding $3,500.00 per annum, as may be provided in the annual appropriation ordinance for his or her services as chairman of said committee.
