Committee Overview

Illinois Compiled Statue states that a company, corporation, or association outside of Illinois that sells fire insurance to property owners in the City of East Moline must pay 2% of the gross receipts to the Illinois Municipal

The board shall consist of 7 trustees; the Fire Chief, who shall hold office by virtue of rank, and 6 members elected at large by sworn members of the department. The members of this board shall annually elect officers. At minimum these officers shall be a Chairman and a Treasurer.


As part of the annual municipal audit, these funds shall be audited to verify that the funds have been expended by that board only for maintenance, use, and benefit of the department.
