Public Act 100-0868
SB2299 EnrolledLRB100 16715 AWJ 31854 b
AN ACT concerning local government.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The Public Officer Prohibited Activities Act is
amended by changing Sections 2a and 4 as follows:
(50 ILCS 105/2a) (from Ch. 102, par. 2a)
Sec. 2a. Township officials Township supervisors and
trustees.
(a) No township supervisor or trustee, during the term of
office for which he or she is elected, may accept, be appointed
to, or hold any office by the appointment of the board of
township trustees unless he or she first resigns from the
office of supervisor or trustee or unless the appointment is
specifically authorized by law. A supervisor or trustee may,
however, serve as a volunteer firefighter fireman and receive
compensation for that service. Any appointment in violation of
this Section is void. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to
prohibit an elected township official from holding elected
office in another unit of local government as long as there is
no contractual relationship between the township and the other
unit of local government. This amendatory Act of 1995 is
declarative of existing law and is not a new enactment.
(b) On and after the effective date of this amendatory Act
of the 100th General Assembly, a person elected to or appointed
to fill a vacancy in an elected township position, including,
but not limited to, a trustee, a supervisor, a highway
commissioner, a clerk, an assessor, or a collector, shall not
be employed by the township, except that a supervisor or
trustee may serve as a volunteer firefighter and receive
compensation for that service as provided in subsection (a).

(50 ILCS 105/4) (from Ch. 102, par. 4)
Sec. 4. Any alderman, member of a board of trustees,
supervisor or county commissioner, or other person holding any
office, either by election or appointment under the laws or
constitution of this state, who violates any provision of the
preceding sections, is guilty of a Class 4 felony and in
addition thereto, any office or official position held by any
person so convicted shall become vacant, and shall be so
declared as part of the judgment of court. This Section does
not apply to a violation of subsection (b) of Section 2a.
