 5    represented in the General Assembly:
 6        Section 5.  The Metropolitan Water  Reclamation  District
 7    Act is amended by changing Sections 4.7, 4.11, and 5.9 and by
 8    adding Section 271 as follows:
 9        (70 ILCS 2605/4.7) (from Ch. 42, par. 323.7)
10        Sec.  4.7.   All applicants for offices or places in said
11    classified civil service, except for the positions of  deputy
12    chief  engineer,    assistant chief engineers, head assistant
13    attorneys, assistant director of  research  and  development,
14    assistant  director  of  information technology, comptroller,
15    assistant treasurer, assistant purchasing agent and  laborers
16    shall  be subjected to examination, which shall be public and
17    competitive with limitations specified in the  rules  of  the
18    Director  as  to  residence,  age, sex, health, habits, moral
19    character and qualifications to perform  the  duties  of  the
20    office  or  place to be filled, which qualifications shall be
21    prescribed in advance of such examination.  Such examinations
22    shall be practical in their character, and  shall  relate  to
23    those matters which will fairly test the relative capacity of
24    the  persons examined to discharge the duties of the position
25    to which they seek to be appointed, and may include tests  of
26    physical  qualifications  and health and when appropriate, of
27    manual skill. No question in any examination shall relate  to
28    political   or   religious  opinions  or  affiliations.   The
29    Director shall control all examinations, and may, whenever an
30    examination is to take place, designate a suitable number  of
31    persons  to  be special examiners and it shall be the duty of
SB1307 Enrolled            -2-                 LRB9008757PTsb
 1    such special examiners to conduct such  examinations  as  the
 2    Director may direct, and to make return and report thereof to
 3    him;  and  he  may at any time substitute any other person in
 4    the place of any one so selected; and he may himself, at  any
 5    time,  act  as  such special examiner, and without appointing
 6    other  special  examiners.   The  Director  shall,  by  rule,
 7    provide for and shall hold sufficient number of  examinations
 8    to  provide  a sufficient number of eligibles on the register
 9    for each grade of position in the classified  civil  service,
10    and if any place in the classified civil service shall become
11    vacant, to which there is no person eligible for appointment,
12    he shall hold an examination for such position and repeat the
13    same,  if  necessary, until a vacancy is filled in accordance
14    with the provisions of this Act.
15        Eligible registers shall remain in  force  for  3  years,
16    except  the eligible register for laborers which shall remain
17    in force for 4 years and except the  eligible  registers  for
18    student programs and entry level engineering positions which,
19    in  the  Director's  discretion,  may remain in force for one
20    year.
21        Examinations for an eligible list for  each  position  in
22    the classified service above mentioned shall be held at least
23    once  in  3  years and at least annually for student programs
24    and entry level engineering positions  if  the  Director  has
25    limited  the duration of the registers for those positions to
26    one  year,  unless  the   Director   determines   that   such
27    examinations are not necessary because no vacancy exists.
28        To  help  defray  expenses  of examinations, the sanitary
29    district may, but need not, charge a fee  to  each  applicant
30    who  desires to take a civil service examination provided for
31    by this Act. The amount of such fees  shall  be  set  by  the
32    corporate  authority  of  the  sanitary  district.  Such fees
33    shall be deposited in the corporate fund of the district.

11    addresses (a) of the five candidates  standing  highest  upon
12    the  register  of  eligibles  for the position, or (b) of the

19    at least 5 names are provided to the appointing officer.  The
20    appointing officer shall notify the Director of each position
21    to be filled  separately  and  shall  fill  the  position  by

26    with  the  approval of the Director may discharge a person so
27    certified and shall forthwith notify the civil service  board
28    in writing of this discharge.  If a person is not discharged,

 6    Director  of  Personnel make temporary appointments to fill a
 7    vacancy.   No  temporary  appointment   of   an   essentially
 8    temporary  and  transitory nature may be granted for a period
 9    of more than 120 days and is not  subject  to  renewal.   The
