Public Act 100-0351
 
HB0776 EnrolledLRB100 05662 AWJ 15679 b

    AN ACT concerning local government.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Park District Code is amended by changing
Section 2-10a as follows:
 
    (70 ILCS 1205/2-10a)  (from Ch. 105, par. 2-10a)
    Sec. 2-10a. Any district may provide by referendum, or by
resolution of the board, that the board shall be comprised of 7
commissioners. Any such referendum shall be initiated and held
in the same manner as is provided by the general election law.
    If a majority of the votes cast on the proposition is in
favor of the 7-member board, or if the board adopts a
resolution stating that it is acting pursuant to this Section
in order to create a 7-member board, then whichever of the
following transition schedules are appropriate shall be
applied: At the election of commissioners next following by at
least 60 days the date on which the proposition to create a
7-member board was approved at referendum or by resolution, the
number of commissioners to be elected shall be 2 more than the
number that would otherwise have been elected. If this results
in the election, pursuant to Section 2-12 of this Act, of 4
commissioners at that election, one of the 4, to be determined
by lot within 30 days after the election, shall serve for a
term of 4 years or 2 years as the case may be, instead of 6
years, so that his term will expire in the same year in which
the term of only one of the incumbent commissioners expires.
Thereafter all commissioners shall be elected for 6-year terms
as provided in Section 2-12. If the creation of a 7-member
board results in the election of either 3 or 4 commissioners,
pursuant to Section 2-12a of this Act, at that election, 2 of
them, to be determined by lot within 30 days after the
election, shall serve for terms of 2 years instead of 4 years.
Thereafter all commissioners shall be elected for 4-year terms
as provided in Section 2-12a of this Act.
    In any district where a 7-member board has been created
pursuant to this Section whether by referendum or by
resolution, the number of commissioners may later be reduced to
5, but only by a referendum initiated and held in the same
manner as prescribed in this Section for creating a 7-member
board. No proposition to reduce the number of commissioners
shall affect the terms of any commissioners holding office at
the time of the referendum or to be elected within 60 days of
the referendum. If a majority of the votes cast on the
proposition is in favor of reducing a 7-member board to a
5-member board, then, at the election of commissioners next
following by at least 60 days the date on which the proposition
was approved at referendum, the number of commissioners to be
elected shall be 2 less than the number that would otherwise
have been elected and whichever of the following transition
schedules are appropriate shall be applied: (i) if this results
in the election of no commissioners for a 6-year term pursuant
to Section 2-12 of this Act, then at the next election in which
3 commissioners are scheduled to be elected to 6-year terms as
provided in Section 2-12, one of the 3, to be determined by lot
within 30 days after the election, shall serve for a term of 4
years or 2 years, as the case may be, instead of 6 years, so
that his or her term will expire in the same year in which the
term of no incumbent commissioner is scheduled to expire;
thereafter, all commissioners shall be elected for 6-year terms
as provided in Section 2-12; or (ii) if the reduction to a
5-member board results in the election of one commissioner to a
4-year term, pursuant to Section 2-12a of this Act, then at the
next election in which 4 commissioners are scheduled to be
elected to 4-year terms as provided in Section 2-12a, one of
the 4, to be determined by lot within 30 days after the
election, shall serve for a term of 2 years, instead of 4
years, so that his or her term will expire in the same year in
which the term of only one incumbent commissioner is scheduled
to expire; thereafter, all commissioners shall be elected for
4-year terms as provided in Section 2-12a.
