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.

70 ILCS 1205/2-18

    (70 ILCS 1205/2-18) (from Ch. 105, par. 2-18)
    Sec. 2-18. (a) Except for the Fox Valley Park District on and after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, in any Pleasure Driveway and Park District in which the legal voters have heretofore determined that the governing board shall be appointed, such method shall continue in effect and the board shall consist of 7 trustees. In such case and if the district is wholly contained within a single county the trustees shall be appointed by the presiding officer of the county board with the advice and consent of the county board. If the district is located in more than one county, the number of trustees who are residents of a county shall be in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the number of residents of the district who reside in that county in relation to the total population of the district, except that the board of trustees may determine that one trustee is to be appointed from each county within the district, such appointment to be made by the appropriate appointing authority as hereinafter provided. Each trustee shall be appointed by the county board of his or her county of residence, or in the case of a home rule county, by the chief executive officer of the county with the advice and consent of the county board.
    (b) Upon the expiration of the term of a trustee who is in office at the time of the publication of each decennial Federal census of population, the successor shall be a resident of whichever county is entitled to such representation as determined under subsection (a), and he shall be appointed by the county board of that county, or in the case of a home rule county as defined by Article VII, Section 6 of the Illinois Constitution, the chief executive officer of that county, with the advice and consent of the county board. Thereafter, each trustee shall be succeeded by a resident of the same county who shall be appointed by the same appointing authority. The appropriate appointing authority shall appoint trustees biennially for such district on the first Monday in July, to fill the vacancies on the board of trustees caused by the expiration of the term of office of trustees and the trustees shall be legal voters and reside within the park district; provided, that no more than 4 trustees at any one time shall belong to the same political party. Each of the trustees shall receive a certificate of appointment and qualify within 10 days from the receipt of notice of appointment.
    Trustees shall be appointed for a period of 4 years and shall hold their office until their successors are appointed and qualified.
    Whenever a vacancy is created other than by the expiration of a trustee's term of office, it shall be filled by the appropriate appointing authority as provided in subsection (a).
    All trustees appointed for any park district, as herein provided, shall have and exercise all the powers conferred upon trustees elected under the provisions of this Code.
    In a Pleasure Driveway and Park District the trustees of which are appointed as herein provided, whenever a provision in this Code or any other applicable law authorizes a public question of any kind to be submitted to the electors of the district at an election, a petition by electors of the district asking that such question be submitted shall be signed by a number of registered voters of such district equal to not less than 10% of the number of registered voters in the district as of the last preceding regular election.
