(605 ILCS 5/5-203)
(from Ch. 121, par. 5-203)
Any county superintendent of highways may be removed from
office by the county board for incompetence, neglect of duty or malfeasance
in office. In any proceeding to remove a county superintendent of highways
from office a petition shall be filed with the county board naming such
officer as respondent and setting forth the particular facts upon which
the request for removal is based. The county board shall set the matter
for hearing not earlier than 5 days after service upon the respondent, which
service shall be the same as in civil actions. The county board shall thereupon
proceed to a determination of the charges and shall enter an order either
dismissing the charge against the county superintendent of highways or removing
him from office.
The decision of the county board is subject to judicial review under the
Administrative Review Law as now or hereafter amended.
