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.

    (220 ILCS 10/6) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 906)
    Sec. 6. Board. The corporation shall be managed by, and its powers, functions and duties shall be exercised through a board to be composed as follows:
    (1) Election and Terms of Directors. The Citizens Utility Board Districts shall be divided into two groups for the purpose of establishing terms for which the Directors shall be elected in each group. One group shall be comprised of the even numbered Congressional Districts. The odd numbered Congressional Districts shall comprise the other group.
    (a) The Interim Board, within 60 days after their appointment, shall meet and publicly by lot determine which group shall be the first group and which group shall be the second. The board members or their successors from the first group shall be elected for successive terms of two years, two years and four years; and members or their successors from the second group shall be elected for successive terms of four years, two years and two years.
    (b) The first election of directors of the board is to be held no later than April 30, 1985. Subsequent elections of directors of the board shall be held on March 31 of each election year. If March 31 falls on a weekend or holiday, the election shall occur on the next business day following March 31.
    (c) Interim and elected board members shall serve until their successors are elected and have qualified.
    (d) In the year following each decennial census and within 45 days after the redistricted Congressional Districts are enacted, the board shall allocate terms between the 2 groups of districts publicly by lot as provided in paragraph (a). Board members or their successors from the first group shall be elected for successive terms of two years, four years and four years; and members or their successors from the second group shall be elected for successive terms of four years, four years, and two years.
    (2) Qualifications. A director shall be a resident of the district he or she represents and member of the corporation. No person who is an employee in any managerial or supervisory capacity, director, officer or agent or who is a member of the immediate family of any such employee, director, officer or agent of any public utility is eligible to be a director. No director may hold any elective position, be a candidate for any elective position, be a State public official, be employed by the Illinois Commerce Commission, or be employed in a governmental position exempt from the Personnel Code.
    (3) Director, Family Member Employment. No director, nor member of his or her immediate family shall, either directly or indirectly, be employed for compensation as a staff member or consultant of the corporation.
    (4) Meetings. The board shall hold regular meetings at least once every 3 months on such dates and at such places as it may determine. Special meetings may be called by the president or by a majority of the directors upon at least 7 days' advance written notice. Unless otherwise provided in the bylaws, a majority of the board of directors shall constitute a quorum; provided, that in no event shall a quorum consist of less than one-third of the board of directors. The act of the majority of the directors, present at a meeting at which a quorum is present, shall be the act of the board of directors unless the act of a greater number is required by this Act or bylaws. A summary of the minutes of every board meeting shall be made available to each public library in the State upon request and to individuals upon request.
    (5) Expenses. A director may not receive any compensation for his or her services but shall be reimbursed for necessary expenses, including travel expenses incurred in the discharge of duties. The board shall establish standard allowances for mileage, room and meals and the purposes for which such allowances may be made and shall determine the reasonableness and necessity for such reimbursements. The board shall include the schedule of such standard allowances in the annual report under subsection (4) (d) of Section 7.
    (6) Bonding. Directors and employees eligible to disburse funds shall be bonded. The costs of such bonds shall be paid by the corporation.
