§ 10-1014 Council of fire department. In a village in which separate fire commissioners are not appointed, the chief, the assistant, and the wardens of the several companies constitute the council of the fire department. The council shall meet on the third Tuesday in April in each year and choose from its own number a secretary, a treasurer and a collector of the fire department, who shall hold their respective offices for one year unless sooner removed by the council. A vacancy in the office of secretary, treasurer or collector shall be filled by the council at its next meeting for the balance of the unexpired term. Such council shall have all the powers and be subject to all the liabilities and perform all the duties of a separate board of fire commissioners, as prescribed in section 10-1000 of this article, except subdivisions two, three, four and eight and the fixing of compensation under subdivisions five and seven of such section, and as to the provisions of such subdivisions such council shall only recommend to the board of trustees of the village. A majority of the members of such council constitute a quorum, and may make and prescribe by-laws for the proper management of the affairs and the disposition of the funds of the fire department, may call meetings of the members, and designate one or more days in each year for public exercise, inspection and review.
