Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (60 ILCS 1/30-5)
    Sec. 30-5. Annual township meeting.
    (a) The annual township meeting in the respective townships for the transaction of the business of the township shall be held on the second Tuesday of April in each year, after 6 p.m., at the place appointed for those meetings. Elections for township officers shall be held in accordance with the consolidated schedule of elections prescribed by the general election law.
    (b) Whenever the date designated in subsection (a) conflicts with the celebration of Passover or Ramadan, the township board may postpone the annual township meeting to the first Tuesday following the last day of Passover or Ramadan.
    (c) Whenever the consolidated election provided for in subsection (b) of Section 2A-1.1 of the Election Code is rescheduled to the second Tuesday in April under Section 2A-1.1a of the Election Code, the annual township meeting shall be held on the third Tuesday in April at the time designated by the electors or the township board, whichever is appropriate.
    (d) If the Governor declares a disaster under Section 7 of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act and the disaster declaration is effective during the dates designated for a township's annual meeting under subsection (a), (b), or (c), a township board may postpone the annual meeting if circumstances related to the disaster declaration prevent a township from holding its annual meeting. An annual township meeting postponed under this subsection shall be held on the third Tuesday, after 6 p.m., of the month following the expiration of the disaster declaration. If a subsequent disaster is declared under Section 7 of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act prior to or one day after the expiration of the disaster declaration upon which the township board based its decision to postpone the annual meeting and the township board intends to proceed with the annual meeting during this subsequent disaster declaration, the township board must consult with and receive written approval from the county health department in order to proceed with the annual meeting during the course of the subsequent disaster declaration.
