Public Act 101-0058
 
HB2081 EnrolledLRB101 04918 AWJ 49927 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 2-12a as follows:
 
    (70 ILCS 1205/2-12a)  (from Ch. 105, par. 2-12a)
    Sec. 2-12a. Any district may provide, either by resolution
of the board or by referendum, that the term of commissioners
shall be 4 years rather than 6 years. Any such referendum shall
be initiated and held in the same manner as is provided by the
general election law for public questions authorized by Article
VII of the Illinois Constitution.
    If a majority of the votes cast on the proposition is in
favor of a 4-year term for commissioners, or if the Board
adopts a resolution stating that it is acting pursuant to this
Section to change the term of office from 6 years to 4 years,
commissioners thereafter elected, commencing with the first
regular park district election at least 60 days after the date
on which the proposition for 4-year terms was approved at
referendum or by resolution, shall be elected for a term of 4
years. In order to provide for the transition from 6-year terms
to 4-year terms: ,
        (1) If if 2 commissioners on a 5-member board are to be
    elected at the first such election and if the term of only
    one commissioner is scheduled to expire in the year of the
    next election at which commissioners are elected, of the 2
    commissioners elected, one shall serve a 2-year term and
    one a 4-year term, to be determined by lot between the 2
    persons elected within 30 days after the election.
        (2) On a 7-member board under Section 2-10a, if the
    terms of only 2 commissioners are scheduled to expire in
    the year of the second election at which commissioners are
    elected after the first regular park district election at
    least 60 days after the date on which the proposition for
    4-year terms was approved at referendum or by resolution,
    then:
            (A) if 3 commissioners are elected at the first
        regular election, 2 of the commissioners elected shall
        serve a 2-year term and one shall serve a 4-year term
        to be determined by lot between persons elected within
        30 days after the first election; or
            (B) if 2 commissioners are elected at the first
        regular election, those 2 commissioners elected shall
        serve a 2-year term.
    In any district where the board has created 4-year terms
pursuant to this Section, whether by referendum or by
resolution, the length of terms may later be increased to 6
years, but only by a referendum initiated and held in the same
manner as prescribed in this Section for creating 4-year terms.
No proposition to increase the terms of commissioners shall
affect any commissioner holding office at the time of the
referendum or to be elected within 60 days of the referendum.
