Plan Commission members must file an annual Economic Interest Statement. Provisions of the state law require that certain government employees and officials, including Plan Commission members, annually file an Economic Interest Statement disclosing ownership in entities doing business with the Village, interests in real property, certain gifts, loans, honoraria, professional services rendered, capital gains received, governmental employment income, and investment in entities seeking government action. These laws are designed to inform the public of financial interests that could influence public officials who have decision-making powers.
