Elected Township Officials Prohibited From Being Employed by Township

Given the activity at the Illinois General Assembly, we will have a number of new laws to report on over the next few days/weeks. Today, we report on a new law affecting elected township officials.

Pursuant to P.A. 100-868, township officials who are elected to a township position (or appointed to fill a vacant elected position) are prohibited from also being employed by the township. The prohibition applies to township trustees, supervisors, highway commissioners, clerks, assessors, and collectors. The law becomes effective January 1, 2019.
