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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Other officers; election rather than appointment.
Instead of providing for the appointment of the
following officers as provided in Section 3.1-30-5, the city council, in
its discretion, may provide by ordinance passed by a two-thirds vote of
all the alderpersons elected for the election by the electors of the city of
a city collector, a city marshal, a city superintendent of streets, a
corporation counsel, a city comptroller, or any of them, and any other
officers which the city council considers necessary or expedient. By
ordinance or resolution, to take effect at the end of the current fiscal
year, the city council, by a like vote, may discontinue any office so
created and devolve the duties of that office on any other city
officer. After discontinuance of an office, no officer filling that office
before its discontinuance shall have any claim against the city for salary
accrue after the date of discontinuance.
