If approved, the size of the board would have been cut in the 2015 election, as terms of incumbents expire.

Board members serve six-year terms. The move would have saved $3,000 per year in pay for each seat eliminated.

The district serves about a one-square-mile area of unincorporated Elk Grove Township where the bulk of the residents live in mobile homes.
