(50 ILCS 425/3) (from Ch. 85, par. 831-3)
    Sec. 3. Notes issued under this Act shall be due not more than 12 months from the date of issue and shall be payable in accordance with the resolution adopted by the governing body providing for the issuance of the notes or warrants. Notes issued under this Act shall bear interest at not more than the maximum interest rate allowed by "An Act to authorize public corporations to issue bonds, other evidences of indebtedness and tax anticipation warrants subject to interest rate limitations set forth therein", approved May 26, 1970, as amended, payable annually or semi-annually or at the time of payment of principal. The interest to the due date of the note may be represented by appropriate coupons and be executed by the facsimile signature of the appropriate treasurer. No notes shall be issued under this Act after the revenue to be anticipated is delinquent. No notes shall be issued or sold, unless such issuance and sale is authorized by a vote of at least 2/3 of the members elected to the governing body. The notes shall be sold to the highest responsible bidder after due advertisement and public opening of bids. The governing body may authorize notes to be issued and sold from time to time and in such amounts as the appropriate treasurer deems necessary to provide funds to pay obligations due or to accrue within the then fiscal year.
    Notes issued under this Act shall be received by any collector of revenues against which they are issued at par plus accrued interest, and when so received shall be cancelled with the same effect as though paid pursuant to this Act.
    Such notes shall be signed by the presiding officer of the governing body and countersigned by the treasurer. Such notes shall be payable to bearer provided that the notes may be registered as to principal in the name of the holder on the books of the treasurer and evidence of such registration shall be endorsed upon the back of notes so registered. After such registration no transfer shall be made except upon such books and similarly noted on the note unless the last registration was to bearer. Such notes may be re-registered from time to time in the name of the designated holder but such registration shall not affect the negotiability of the coupons attached.
