(70 ILCS 5/8.14)
(from Ch. 15 1/2, par. 68.8-14)
Rules and regulations adopted under and in pursuance of the powers
granted by Sections 8.10, 8.11 and 8.12 must be contained in an ordinance
which shall be placed on file in the office of the Authority in typewritten
or printed form for public inspection not less than 15 days before
adoption. Such ordinance may prescribe such fines as the Board of
Commissioners deems appropriate of not less than $1 nor more than $1,000 upon
conviction for each offense, and may provide that, in case of continuing
violation of any such rule or regulation, each calendar day that such
violation continues constitutes a separate offense.
Notice of the filing of and public hearing upon any ordinance
prescribing fines or penalties and of the date and time for its being
publicly heard shall be published one time in a newspaper generally
circulated within the Authority not more than 30 nor less than 15 days
prior to the date of such hearing. Such ordinance may be amended at the
public hearing and may be later amended where no new rule or regulation is
adopted or existing fine or penalty modified, without pre-filing or
publication of notice prior to the adoption of the amendatory ordinance.
After adoption, typewritten or printed copies of each ordinance of an
authority which prescribes fines or penalties shall be made available at
the office of the authority for distribution upon request.
All fines, when collected, for violations of any such ordinance of an
authority shall be paid into its treasury.
