Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (a) In counties with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants, on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November 1994, 2 commissioners of the board of appeals shall be elected to hold office from the first Monday in December following their election and until the first Monday in December 1998. In case of any vacancy, the chief judge of the circuit court or any judge of that circuit designated by the chief judge shall fill the vacancy by appointment. The commissioners shall be electors in the particular county at the time of their election or appointment and shall hold no other lucrative public office or public employment. Each commissioner shall receive compensation fixed by the county board, which shall be paid out of the county treasury and which shall not be changed during the term for which any commissioner is elected or appointed. Effective the first Monday in December 1998, the board of appeals is abolished.

    (c) In each county with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants, there is created a board of review. The board of review shall consist of 3 commissioners, one elected from each election district in the county at the general election in 1998 to hold office for a term beginning on the first Monday in December following their election and until their respective successors are elected and qualified.
    No later than June 1, 1996, the General Assembly shall establish the boundaries for the 3 election districts in each county with 3,000,000 or more inhabitants. The election districts shall be compact, contiguous, and have substantially the same population based on the 1990 federal decennial census. One district shall be designated as the first election district, one as the second election district, and one as the third election district. The commissioner from each district shall be elected to a term of 4 years.
    In the year following each federal decennial census, the General Assembly shall reapportion the election districts to reflect the results of the census. The reapportioned districts shall be compact, contiguous, and contain substantially the same population. The commissioner from the first district shall be elected to terms of 4 years, 4 years, and 2 years. The commissioner from the second district shall be elected to terms of 4 years, 2 years, and 4 years. The commissioner from the third district shall be elected to terms of 2 years, 4 years, and 4 years.
    In case of vacancy, the chief judge of the circuit court or any judge of the circuit court designated by the chief judge shall fill the vacancy by appointment of a person from the same political party. If the vacancy is filled with more than 28 months remaining in the term, the appointed commissioner shall serve until the next general election, at which time a commissioner shall be elected to serve for the remainder of the term. If a vacancy is filled with 28 months or less remaining in the term, the appointment shall be for the remainder of the term. No commissioner may be elected or appointed to the board of review unless he or she has resided in the election district he or she seeks to represent for at least 2 years before the date of the election or appointment. In the election following each federal decennial census and board of review redistricting, a candidate for commissioner may be elected from any election district that contains a part of the election district in which he or she resided at the time of the redistricting and re-elected if a resident of the new district he or she represents for 18 months prior to re-election. The commissioners shall hold no other lucrative public office or public employment.
    Each commissioner shall receive compensation fixed by the county board, which shall be paid from the county treasury. Compensation for each commissioner shall be equitable and shall not be changed during the term for which that commissioner is elected or appointed. The county shall provide suitable office space for the board of review.
    For the year beginning on the first Monday in December 1998 and ending the first Monday in December 1999, and every fourth year thereafter, the chair of the board shall be the commissioner elected from the first district.

    On and after the first Monday in December, 1998, any reference in this Code to a board of appeals shall mean the board of review created under this subsection, and any reference to a member of a board of review shall mean a commissioner of a board of review. Whenever it may be necessary for purposes of determining its jurisdiction, the board of review shall be deemed to succeed to the powers and duties of the former board of appeals; provided that the board of review shall also have all of the powers and duties granted to it under this Code. All action of the board of review shall be by a majority vote of its commissioners.
