Village of Winnetka
Regular meetings of the Police Pension Board (PPB) take place on the second Wednesday of January, April, July, and October. All meetings are held at the Police Department and start at 9:15 a.m.
Pursuant to Article 3 of the Illinois State Pension Code, the Village of Winnetka is required to establish and administer a police pension fund for the benefit of the Village’s sworn police officers, and of the officers’ surviving spouses, children and certain other dependents. The Police Pension Board is a five-member board that is created by Section 3-128 of the Pension Code and is charged by law with controlling and managing the Police Pension Fund. The Police Pension Fund derives its funds primarily from property taxes and police officer contributions.
The PPB consists of the following five members: two members appointed by the Village President; two active members of the police force elected by their fellow active officers; and one representative of the beneficiaries elected by and from all beneficiaries of legal age.
All members of the PPB serve for a term of two years. The appointed members are appointed so that their terms expire in alternate years. Elections for the active police representatives and the beneficiaries’ representative are held every other year, on the third Monday in April. Although not a member of the Police Pension Board, the Village Treasurer serves as the Board’s treasurer.
The key functions of the PPB are described below:
