 1        AN ACT concerning sanitary districts.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The Sanitary District Act of 1936 is amended
 5    by changing Section 4 as follows:

 6        (70 ILCS 2805/4) (from Ch. 42, par. 415)
 7        Sec.  4.   The  trustees  shall  constitute  a  board  of
 8    trustees for the sanitary district. The board of trustees  is
 9    the  corporate  authority  of  the sanitary district, and may
10    exercise all the  powers  and  manage  and  control  all  the
11    affairs  and  property of the district. The board of trustees
12    at the beginning of each new term of office  shall  meet  and
13    elect  one  of their number as president, one of their number
14    as vice-president, and from or outside of their membership  a
15    clerk   and  an  assistant  clerk.  In  case  of  the  death,
16    resignation, absence from the state, or other  disability  of
17    the  president,  the  powers,  duties  and  emoluments of the
18    office   of   the   president   shall   devolve   upon    the
19    vice-president,  until  such disability is removed or until a
20    successor to the president is appointed  and  chosen  in  the
21    manner   provided  in  this  Act.  The  board  may  select  a
22    treasurer, engineer and attorney for the district, who  shall
23    hold  their  respective  offices  during  the pleasure of the
24    board, and give such bond as may be required  by  the  board.
25    The  board  may  appoint  such  other  officers and hire such
26    employees  to  manage  and  control  the  operations  of  the
27    district as it deems necessary. The board may  prescribe  the
28    duties  and  fix  the  compensation  of  all the officers and
29    employees of the sanitary district. However, no member of the
30    board of trustees shall receive more than $6,000  $3,000  per
31    year.  The  board  of  trustees  has  full  power to pass all
SB31 Enrolled               -2-                LRB9201389TAtm
 1    necessary ordinances, rules and regulations  for  the  proper
 2    management  and  conduct of the business of the board and the
 3    sanitary  district,  and  for  carrying   into   effect   the
 4    collection  and disposal of sewage and the purposes for which
 5    the  sanitary  district  was  formed.   Such  ordinances  may
 6    provide for a fine for each offense of not less than $100  or
 7    more  than  $1,000.  Each day's continuance of such violation
 8    shall be a separate offense.  Fines pursuant to this  Section
 9    are  recoverable  by the sanitary district in a civil action.
10    The sanitary district is authorized to apply to  the  circuit
11    court  for injunctive relief or mandamus when, in the opinion
12    of the chief administrative officer, such relief is necessary
13    to protect the sewerage system of the sanitary district.  The
14    board of trustees has the sole and  exclusive  authority  for
15    regulation  and  inspection  of  drainage  lines to determine
16    their adequacy and suitability for connection to  the  sewage
17    system of the district.
