The Illinois Municipal League (IML) just released the most recent edition of the Illinois Municipal Handbook (2021), the 19th edition  of this publication. The Municipal Handbook provides a complete overview of municipal government, home rule, elections, FOIA, Open Meetings, employment laws, zoning, property sale and purchase, ethics, and many other topics of interest to municipal officials and employees. The Municipal Handbook is published by the IML, and each chapter of the Handbook is authored by Ancel Glink attorneys who volunteer their time on this publication.

This release is great timing for newly elected officials who would like a comprehensive overview of laws and regulations that affect municipal governance.

You can order a copy of the Handbook on the IML’s website here.
