Auditor Referendum Public Meeting
Tuesday, March 13, 2018
Peoria County invites citizens to attend a public meeting to learn about and discuss the referendum on the March 20 ballot regarding changing the office of the Auditor from an elected position to an appointed position.
The referendum reads: “Shall the elected Office of the Peoria County Auditor be eliminated, effective December 1, 2018, and replaced with a professional County Auditor qualified and appointed by the County Board with a 5-year term during which such appointed County Auditor can only be removed from office for malfeasance or official misconduct?”
At the January 23, 2018 Executive Committee meeting, the committee was presented a draft new article in the Peoria County Code of Ordinances to govern the position should the referendum pass. The entirety of Article VI County Auditor is available online at http://peoriacounty.org/837.
