Consent agenda/omnibus vote1
 
At any meeting, the village board, by unanimous consent, may take a single vote by yeas and nays on the several questions of the passage of any two (2) or more designated ordinances, orders, resolutions, or motions placed together for voting purposes in a single group. The single vote shall be entered separately in the journal under the designation omnibus vote, and in such an event, the village clerk may enter the words "omnibus vote" or "consent agenda" in the journal in each case instead of entering the names of the members of city council voting "yea" and those voting "nay" on the passage of each of the designated ordinances, orders, resolutions, and motions included in the omnibus group or consent agenda. The taking of a single or omnibus vote and the entries of the words "omnibus vote" or "consent agenda" in the journal shall be a sufficient compliance with the requirements of this section to all intents and purposes and with like effect 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 the 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 at the request of any trustee and shall be recorded in the journal.
