Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 42, par. 280)
Board of trustees; powers; compensation.
The trustees shall
constitute a board of trustees for the district.
The board of trustees is the corporate authority of the district, and
shall exercise all the powers and manage and control all the affairs and
property of the district. The board shall elect a president and
vice-president from among their own number. In case of the death,
resignation, absence from the state, or other disability of the
president, the powers, duties and emoluments of the office of the
president shall devolve upon the vice-president, until the disability
is removed or until a successor to the president is appointed and chosen
in the manner provided in this Act. The board may select a secretary,
treasurer, executive director, and attorney, and may provide
by ordinance for the employment of other employees as
the board may deem necessary for the municipality. The board may appoint
such other officers and hire such employees to manage and control the
operations of the district as it deems necessary; provided, however, that the
board shall not employ an individual as a wastewater operator whose Certificate
of Technical Competency is suspended or revoked under rules adopted by the
Pollution Control Board under item (4) of subsection (a) of Section 13 of the
Environmental Protection Act. All employees
selected by the board shall hold their respective offices during the
pleasure of the board, and give such bond as may be required by the
board. The board may prescribe the duties and fix the compensation of
all the officers and employees of the sanitary district. However, the president of the board shall not receive more than $18,000 per year, and each other member of the board shall not receive more than $15,000 per year. The board of trustees has full power to pass all necessary
ordinances, rules and regulations for the proper management and conduct of
the business of the board and of the corporation, and for carrying into
effect the objects for which the sanitary district was formed. The
ordinances may provide for a fine for each offense of not less than $100 or
more than $1,000. Each day's continuance of a violation shall be a
separate offense. Fines under this Section are recoverable by the sanitary
district in a civil action. The sanitary district is authorized to apply
to the circuit court for injunctive relief or mandamus when, in the opinion
of the chief administrative officer, the relief is necessary
to protect the sewerage system of the sanitary district.
The board of trustees shall have the authority to change the name of the District, by ordinance, to the North Shore Water Reclamation District. Any such name change shall not impair the legal status of any act by the sanitary district. If an ordinance is passed pursuant to this paragraph, all provisions of this Act shall apply to the newly renamed district. No rights, duties, or privilege of such sanitary district or of any person existing before the change of name shall be affected by the change in the name of the sanitary district. All proceedings pending in any court relating to such sanitary district may continue to final consummation under the name in which they were commenced.
