The North Shore Sanitary District Act is 5 amended by changing Section 3 as follows: 6 (70 ILCS 2305/3) (from Ch. 42, par. 279) 7 Sec. 3. The corporate authority of the North Shore 8 Sanitary District shall consist of 5 trustees. 9 Within 20 days after the adoption of the Act, as provided 10 in Section 1, the county governing body shall proceed to 11 divide the sanitary district into 5 wards for the purpose of 12 electing trustees. One trustee shall be elected for each ward 13 on the date of the next regular county election. In each 14 sanitary district organized pursuant to the provisions of 15 this Act prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act 16 of 1975, one trustee shall be elected for each ward on the 17 date of the regular county election in the year 1976. 18 However, the population in no one ward shall be less than 1/6 19 of the population of the whole district and the territory in 20 each of the wards shall be composed of contiguous territory 21 in as compact form as practicable. A portion of each ward 22 shall abut the west shore of Lake Michigan and the boundaries 23 of the respective wards shall coincide with precinct 24 boundaries and the boundaries of existing municipalities as 25 nearly as practicable. In the year 1981, and every 10 years 26 thereafter, the sanitary district board of trustees shall 27 reapportion the district, so that the respective wards shall 28 conform as nearly as practicable with the above requirements 29 as to population, shape and territory. 30 The trustees shall hold office respectively for 4 years 31 from the first Monday of May after their election and until -2- LRB9206204MWcd 1 their successors are appointed and qualified, except that the 2 term of office of 2 of the trustees first elected shall be 3 for 2 years. Which of the trustees first elected shall serve 4 a term of 2 years shall be determined by lot at their first 5 meeting. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, all 6 trustees elected in 1994 or thereafter shall assume office on 7 the first Monday in December following the general election 8 instead of the first Monday in May of the following year. 9 In the year 1982, and every 10 years thereafter, 10 following each decennial Federal census, all 5 trustees shall 11 be elected. Immediately following each decennial 12 redistricting, the sanitary district board of trustees shall 13 divide the wards into 2 groups, one of which shall consist of 14 3 wards and the other shall consist of 2 wards. Trustees 15 from one group shall serve terms of 4 years, 4 years and 2 16 years; and trustees from the other group shall serve terms of 17 2 years, 4 years and 4 years. 18 Each of the trustees shall enter into bond, in a sum 19 determined by the circuit court, with security to be approved 20 by the circuit court. 21 When a vacancy exists in the office of trustees of any 22 sanitary district organized under the provisions of this Act, 23 the board of trustees must, within 3 days after declaring the 24 vacancy, notify the chairperson of the county central 25 committee of the political party to which the trustee whose 26 office is vacant belongs that a vacancy exists. Within 14 27 days after receiving the notice, the chairperson of the 28 county central committee shall call a meeting of the precinct 29 committeemen whose precincts are wholly or partially in the 30 ward in which the vacancy exists for the purpose of choosing 31 a list of 3 nominees to fill the vacancy. In choosing the 32 nominees, each precinct committeeman shall have one vote for 33 each ballot voted in his or her precinct by the primary 34 electors of the party at the primary at which the precinct -3- LRB9206204MWcd 1 committeeman was elected. The precinct committeemen shall 2 provide the president of the board of trustees of the 3 district with their list of nominees. The vacancy shall, 4 within 60 days after receiving the precinct committeemen's 5 list, be filled by appointment of one of the precinct 6 committeemen's nominees by the president of the sanitary 7 district board of trustees, with the advice and consent of 8 the sanitary district board of trustees. The person 9 appointed shall serve for the remainder of the term or, if 10 more than 28 months remain in the term, until the next 11 regular election at which trustees of the sanitary district 12 are elected.

No 17 trustee or employee of the district shall be directly or 18 indirectly interested in any contract, work or business of 19 the district, or the sale of any article, the expense, price 20 or consideration of which is paid by the district; nor in the 21 purchase of any real estate or other property belonging to 22 the district, or which shall be sold for taxes or 23 assessments, or by virtue of legal process at the suit of the 24 district.
