Decennial Committees on Local Government Efficiency Act Reports

Local Government Efficiency Act

On June 10, 2022, Governor Pritzker signed the Decennial Committee on Local Government Efficiency Act Public Act 102-1088, into law. On Feb. 10, 2023, Public Act 102-1136 amended the original legislation to further define the requirements of this act. These new acts require all Illinois Local Governmental units that levy a tax (outside of municipalities and counties) to constitute a committee to study and report on local government efficiency.

This report must summarize its work and findings which should include recommendations for increased accountability and efficiency. This includes, but is not limited to, the study of the governmental unit’s governing statutes, ordinances, rules, procedures, powers, jurisdiction, shared services, intergovernmental agreements, and interrelationships with other governmental units and the State, data collection, and analysis as necessary to prepare a report that has recommendations regarding efficiencies. The report must be finalized and submitted to the County in which they are located within 18 months of the creation of this committee.

The committee is composed of the president or chief elected (or appointed) official, all elected/appointed members of the governing board, at least two residents, and all other officers of the governmental unit. Additional members can be appointed if the local unit desires.
