(A) In advance of every regular meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Village Clerk shall prepare a document entitled “Consent Calendar” which shall contain a list of all ordinances, resolutions or motions which, in the judgment of the President or any Trustee requesting placement of the Consent Calendar, are likely to be uncontested. The Consent Calendar shall be distributed to the president and all Trustees at least 24 hours in advance of any regular meeting of the Board. During the regular meeting of the Board, any item may be added to or deleted from the Consent Calendar by motion of any Trustee which is fully seconded and passed.
(B) The corporate authorities may by unanimous consent, take a single vote by yeas and nays on the several questions of the passage of any two or more of the designated ordinances, orders, resolutions or motions placed together for voting purposes on the Consent Calendar. In the journal, the Clerk shall designate such a vote on the Consent Calendar as a “Omnibus Vote” and may enter the words “omnibus vote” in the journal in lieu of entering the names of the members of the Village Board voting “yeah” and those voting “nay” on the passage of the designated ordinances, orders, resolutions and motions included in the group. The taking of such single or omnibus vote and such entries of the words “omnibus vote” in the journal shall be a sufficient compliance with the requirements of this chapter and with 65 ILCS 5/3.1-40-40, to all intents and purposes and with like affect as if the vote in each case had been taken separately by yeas and nays on the question of the passage of each ordinance, order, resolution and motion included in such omnibus group and separately recorded in the journal. Likewise, the yeas and nays shall be taken upon the question of the passage of any other resolution or motion or ordinance at the request of any trustee and shall be recorded in the journal.
