(65 ILCS 5/11-81-1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-81-1)
    Sec. 11-81-1. The corporate authorities of each municipality, whether incorporated under the general law or a special charter, which includes wholly within its corporate limits a township or townships, or a road district, may levy, annually, a tax for street and bridge purposes of not to exceed .06% of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, of all taxable property in any township or road district lying wholly within the limits of that municipality. But if, in the opinion of three-fourths of the members elected to the city council or board of trustees of such a municipality, a greater levy for bridge and street purposes is needed, an additional levy may be made of any sum not exceeding .04% of such taxable property. Municipalities having a higher limitation than .10% for street and bridge purposes on July 1, 1967 may continue to levy such higher rate.
    The street and bridge tax authorized by this Section shall be in addition to: (1) any tax that such a municipality is now authorized to levy for street or bridge purposes, and (2) the tax that such a municipality is now authorized to levy upon all property within the municipality, and (3) the amount authorized to be levied for general purposes as provided by Section 8-3-1.
