Name: Illinois Cities and Villages Municipal Problems Commission - RG 566


Historical Note: The Illinois Cities and Villages Municipal Problems Commission was formed in 1957 to address the needs of cities, villages, and incorporated towns throughout the state. It consisted of three members of the Senate and three members of the House, appointed by the president pro tempore and the Speaker respectively, and three citizen members and three elected officials from municipalities, appointed by the Governor. It was charged with studying the salaries of municipal officials and employees; the adequacy of existing statutes in relation to licensing businesses and occupations; municipal sales and utility taxes; the effects of limited bonded indebtedness; tax rate limits; possible broader annexation, zoning, planning and subdivision control powers; and the need to further codify or revise existing legislation. It reported biennially to the General Assembly (L. 1957, pp. 1666-1668). This commission was abolished by the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1174).
