Champaign, IL. (ECWd) -
Public Officials must be familiar with state laws governing the local governments they are members of, prior to taking any action.
The CUPHD allegedly passed an Ordinance regulating use of masks and limits on gatherings. It is invalid and void as they lack the statutory power to enact ordinances.
Nothing in the Act permits the District to establish its own rules, regulations, ordinances, etc. Their mission, according to law, is to:
"To enforce and observe the rules, regulations and orders of the State Department of Public Health and all State laws pertaining to the preservation of the health of the people within the public health district . . ." and "In all public health districts all ordinances of cities, villages and incorporated towns lying within such public health district, relating to sanitation and public health, shall be administered by the medical health officer or administrator appointed pursuant to this Act, and not otherwise."
Sect 17(3) grants the District the powers of County, and Township Boards of Health - and those entities lack authority to enact Ordinances also.
So we are left with a the C-UPHD, a Public Health District, "enacting" an alleged Ordinance which they lacked any power to enact, and they knew or should have known they lacked such a power, violated state law in an effort to intimidate residents of Champaign and Urbana.
They should all be immediately removed from office, or, at minimum, walk around donning the life size penis costume they purchased with taxpayer funds.
