(65 ILCS 5/1-1-4)
(from Ch. 24, par. 1-1-4)
This Code shall apply generally to all municipalities
which are treated as properly incorporated under this Code as provided
in the first paragraph of Section 1-1-3 and to all municipalities which
are incorporated under this Code.
This Code shall also apply generally to all municipalities
incorporated and now existing under a special charter except to the
extent that this Code is in conflict with any provision in a special
charter, and except as otherwise provided in subsection (1) of Section
1-1-2. In the event that there is a conflict between a provision in this
Code and a provision in a special charter, the special charter shall
govern except where any such charter conflicts with or is inconsistent
with the general election law and except where a provision in this Code
is stated to apply to
municipalities incorporated under a special charter, or to
municipalities whether incorporated under a general or special act, or
words to that effect, or where it is otherwise made manifest that this
Code or any other Illinois statute is intended to govern despite the
inconsistent provisions in the special charter.
A municipality incorporated under a special charter may, by ordinance or
resolution, adopt the provisions of Sections 3.1-15-10, 3.1-20-5, and 3.1-20-22
of this Code.
However, if a particular section of this Code is limited to cities or
villages or incorporated towns or any combination thereof, or to cities,
villages, or incorporated towns of a specified type or any combination
thereof, that intention shall prevail.
