Governor Pritzker has now signed Senate Bill 2135 into law (now Public Act 101-0640). Here is a link to the full bill: Senate Bill 2135 - PA 101-0640
The major part of this bill affecting local governments is revisions to the Open Meetings Act concerning remote attendance during a disaster declaration.
Some main points are:
- A quorum does not need to physically be at the meeting location
- At least one member of the public body, chief legal counsel, or chief administrative officer must be physically present at the regular meeting place.
- All votes held remotely shall be done by roll call vote.
- A verbatim recording must be kept of all meetings held in this fashion.
- If public attendance is not possible, the public must be able to hear the meeting “contemporaneously”, requiring the public body to offer a telephone call in number or web link (i.e. Zoom) to hear the meeting.
- Nothing has changed regarding Public Comment at Board meetings so this must still be a part of any meeting held.
If you have any questions I encourage you to contact your township attorney
