    AN  ACT  to  amend  the  Metropolitan  Water  Reclamation
District Act by changing Section 4.3.

    Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section  5.   The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
Act is amended by changing Section 4.3 as follows:

    (70 ILCS 2605/4.3) (from Ch. 42, par. 323.3)
    Sec. 4.3.  Classification  of  positions.   The  Director
shall,  with  the  consent and approval of said civil service
board, classify within 90 days after the  effective  date  of
this  amendatory  Act of 1997 goes into effect, all positions
offices and places of employment in  said  sanitary  district
with  reference  to  the  duties  thereof  for the purpose of
establishing job classifications grades, and  of  fixing  and
maintaining  standards  of  examinations hereinafter provided
for. The positions offices and  places  so  classified  shall
constitute  the  classified  civil  service  of such sanitary
district  and   no   appointments,   promotions,   transfers,
reductions in grade or pay or removal therefrom shall be made
except  under and according to the provisions of this Act and
of the  rules  hereinafter  mentioned.  As  a  part  of  such
classified  civil  service  all  officers and employees under
said Director, except special examiners, shall  be  included.
The  Director  shall  ascertain and record the duties of each
position office and place in the classified civil service and
designate the classification grade  of  each  position.  Each
classification  grade  shall  comprise  positions offices and
places having substantially similar  duties.  He  shall  also
record  the lines of promotion from each lower classification
grade  to  a  higher  classification   grade   wherever   the
experience  derived  in the performance of the duties of such
lower classification grade tends to qualify  for  performance
of  duty  in  such higher classification grade. The director,
subject to the disapproval of  the  civil  service  board  as
hereinafter  provided,  shall  by rule prescribe standards of
efficiency for each classification grade and for examinations
of candidates for  appointment  thereto.  Such  rule  or  any
amendment  thereof  shall  take  effect 30 days after written
notice thereof is given to the civil  service  board,  unless
within  such  period  the  board  files  with  the Director a
written notice of its disapproval thereof.
    For the purpose of establishing  uniformity  of  pay  and
title  for  all  positions  similarly  offices  and places of
employment classified in the same grade, it shall be the duty
of the Director to  prescribe  by  rule  which  shall  become
effective  when  approved  by  the  trustees, the maximum and
minimum pay for  each  classification  grade  and  the  title
thereof  and  to  report to the trustees annually and at such
other times as they may direct the name and address  of  each
officer   and  employee  paid  more  or  less  than  the  pay
prescribed for his classification grade or  designated  by  a
title other than that prescribed for his classification grade
by  the  board  of  trustees.  It  shall  be  the duty of the
trustees not later than the beginning of the next fiscal year
within 30 days after receiving such report to change the  pay
or  title of any position officer or employee so reported out
of classification grade to  conform  to  the  title  and  pay
prescribed  by  the  Director for the classification grade in
which the position held by the such officer  or  employee  is
classified. The Director shall standardize employment in each
classification  grade  and  make  and  keep  a  record of the
relative efficiency of  each  officer  and  employee  in  the
classified  civil service. The Director shall provide by rule
methods for ascertaining and verifying the facts  from  which
such records of relative efficiency shall be made which shall
be  uniform  for  each classification grade in the classified
civil service.
