Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that no later than 30 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the corporate authorities of a municipality with a population of fewer than 40,000 inhabitants in which alderpersons or trustees are elected for 2-year terms shall adopt an ordinance providing that, at the first election of alderpersons or trustees that occurs after July 1, 2022 (if the effective date of the amendatory Act is on or before July 1, 2022) or July 1, 2023 (if the effective date of the amendatory Act is after July 1, 2022), one alderperson or trustee shall be elected from each even-numbered ward for a 2-year term and one alderperson or trustee shall be elected from each odd-numbered ward for a 4-year term, after which their successors shall be elected for 4-year terms. Provides that, if the municipality elects its alderpersons or trustees from at-large districts, then one-half of the alderpersons or trustees (plus one if there is an odd number of alderpersons or trustees) shall be elected to a 2-year term and one-half shall be elected to a 4-year term, after which their successors shall be elected to 4-year terms. Prohibits municipalities from reducing the length of the terms from 4 years to 2 years. Effective immediately.
