Gov Pritzker signs Township Supervisor Appointment Bill –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On July 22, 2019


Last Friday, Governor Pritzker signed HB3141 (Public Act 101-0104).

This Act amends Section 60-5 of the Illinois Township Code, and among other changes, mandates a Township Trustee be appointed as Deputy Supervisor to perform the ministerial duties of the Supervisor when the office of Township Supervisor becomes vacant.

The appointment process for a vacated office of Supervisor has not otherwise changed, this simply allows a Township to continue paying its bills and payroll while it searches for a suitable appointee to the vacated office.

ECWd suggested this amendment and Rep Brad Halbrook and Sen Chapin Rose sponsored it as a solution to problems recently found in Shelbyville and DuPage Townships when the Township Supervisor’s office became vacant.
