(65 ILCS 5/3.1-45-20)
(from Ch. 24, par. 3.1-45-20)
Villages and towns under special Acts.
every village or incorporated town
specified in Section 3.1-25-70 shall have the same powers and perform the
same duties as have been given by any special Act to the legislative
body of that specified village or incorporated town and that have
been given or may later be given to trustees in villages
or incorporated towns organized under this Code. This Section, however,
does not authorize the trustees in a village or incorporated town
to perform any act that its legislative body is specifically
prohibited from performing under the terms of the Act creating that
village or incorporated town. This Section shall not apply to or change
the powers of the members of the legislative body of incorporated towns
that have superseded civil townships.
