    (a)  The   corporate   authorities   of   any  county  or
municipality that imposes  a  surcharge  under  Section  15.3
shall  establish  an  Emergency  Telephone System Board.  The
corporate  authorities  shall  provide  for  the  manner   of
appointment  and the number of members of the Board, provided
that the board shall consist of not fewer than 5 members, one
of whom may be a public member who is a resident of the local

agencies, including but not limited  to  police  departments,
fire  departments,  emergency medical services providers, and
emergency services and disaster agencies,  and  appointed  on
the  basis of their ability or experience.  Elected officials
are also eligible to serve on  the  board.   Members  of  the

more municipalities, counties, or combination  thereof,  that
impose  a  surcharge  under  Section  15.3  may,  instead  of
establishing      individual     boards,     establish     by
intergovernmental  agreement  a  Joint  Emergency   Telephone
System  Board  pursuant  to  this  Section.   The  manner  of

    (c)  All  monies  received  by  a  board  pursuant  to  a

a separate interest-bearing Emergency Telephone  System  Fund
account. The treasurer of the municipality or county that has
established  the  board or, in the case of a joint board, any
municipal   or   county   treasurer   designated    in    the
intergovernmental  agreement, shall be custodian of the fund.
All interest accruing on the fund shall remain in  the  fund.
No  expenditures  may  be made from such fund except upon the

    emergency services.
         (5)  The   non-recurring    charges    related    to
    installation  of  the  Emergency Telephone System and the
    ongoing network charges.
         (6)  The  acquisition  and  installation,   or   the
    reimbursement  of  costs  therefor  to other governmental
    bodies that have incurred those costs, of road or  street
    signs  that  are  essential  to the implementation of the
    emergency telephone system and that are  not  duplicative
    of  signs that are the responsibility of the jurisdiction
    charged with maintaining road and street signs.
         (7)  Other products and services necessary  for  the
    implementation,  upgrade,  and  maintenance of the system

    Sec.  15-50.  Powers  exercised  by city council. All the
powers vested in the township  described  in  Section  15-45,
including  all  the  powers  now vested by law in the highway
commissioners of the township and in the  township  board  of
the  township,  shall  be  exercised by the city council. The
city council shall  perform  the  duties  of  a  township  or
multi-township   board   in   relation  to  the  township  or
multi-township assessor as provided in the Property Tax Code.
    By a resolution passed by a three-fourths vote, the  city
council  of  any home rule municipality may cease to exercise
the powers of  the  township  board.   Vacancies  within  the
offices  of  township clerk, township collector, and board of
trustees resulting from the city council's  action  shall  be
filled  in  accordance  with the general election law for the
holding of township elections.  Any action taken  under  this
Section shall not alter the rights and duties of the township
