[Adopted 5-8-1974; as amended 5-12-1987 by Ord. No. 87-05-108; 8-13-2003 by Res. No. 03-26-274 (Ch. 17, Art. I, § 17-1, of the 1977 Code)]
The members of the Board of Review shall, within one year of taking office, successfully complete a basic course in assessment practice approved by the Illinois Department of Revenue, or such agency as authorized by the General Assembly.
In counties with more than 100,000 inhabitants, no person may serve on the Board of Review who has not passed an examination prepared and administered by the Department to determine his or her competence to hold the office. The County Board may, by resolution, impose a like requirement.
Said examination shall be conducted by the Illinois Department of Revenue, or such agency as authorized by the General Assembly to administer tests to measure the qualification of the individuals to serve on a local board of review, at some convenient location in this County.
If, following the effective date of the appointment of Board of Review members according to law, but before said Board of Review conducts any official business, it appears that any one or all of the appointed members of the Board of Review did not pass the aforesaid examination, the County Board may, by resolution, expressly waive and rescind the aforesaid examination requirement as a qualification to serve on the Board of Review.
Editor's Note: By resolution on 7-10-1974, the County Board waived the examination requirement.
