Last week the Senate Local Government and Elections Committee reported SB 1167, a bill that proscribes a procedure for disincorporation of home rule villages.
Many home rule villages have disincorporation procedures in their charters, and the League wants to preserve local control. The sponsor would like a uniform process for disincorporation statewide.
We are working with the sponsor on amendments to this legislation as it moves forward.
