(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 906)
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.
