Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Township Code. Provides that if a vacant township supervisor office is filled by appointment, the appointed supervisor shall fulfill the bond requirement for township supervisors. Provides that the appointed supervisor may be a trustee appointed by a majority vote of the trustees and shall have one vote on any matter properly before the board. Provides that whenever any township or multi-township office becomes vacant or temporarily vacant due to the physical incapacity of a township officer, the township or multi-township board may temporarily appoint a deputy to perform the ministerial functions of the vacant office. Provides that the temporary deputy is not permitted to vote at a township board meeting unless the appointed deputy is a trustee of the board at the time of the vote. Provides that if the appointed deputy is a trustee, his or her trustee compensation shall be suspended until he or she concludes his or her appointment as an appointed deputy upon the permanent appointment to fill the vacancy. Exempts the temporary deputy from the requirement to fill a vacant township office with a member of the same political party. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that if there is a vacancy in the office of township supervisor, a trustee shall be appointed as deputy supervisor to perform the ministerial functions of that office until the vacancy is filled and that once vacancy is filled, the deputy supervisor's appointment is terminated. Removes language providing that an appointed supervisor shall fulfill the bond requirement for township supervisors and an appointed supervisor may be a trustee appointed by a majority vote of the trustees. Provides that if the township office is temporarily vacant (rather than vacant or temporarily vacant due to the physical incapacity of a township officer), the temporarily appointed deputy may perform the ministerial functions of the vacant office until the township officer submits a written statement to the appropriate board that he or she is able to resume his or her duties.
