(605 ILCS 5/10-206)
(from Ch. 121, par. 10-206)
If the cost of such construction or repair is $1,000 or less,
such county (or counties) shall not be liable for any part of such expense
until all the work has been fully completed, and has been accepted by the
county superintendent of highways (or by each county superintendent of
highways). Such official (or officials) shall certify such acceptance to
his county board (or to their respective county boards), and shall
accompany such certificate with an itemized statement of all expenditures
in such construction or repair.
If the total cost of the construction or repair exceeds $1,000, partial
payments not oftener than once a month, and not to exceed 90% of the work
actually completed, may be paid the contractor by the county (or counties).
No such partial payments shall be made unless approved by the county
superintendent of highways (or by each county superintendent of highways),
and no partial payments shall in any way be deemed an acceptance of the
work until such work has been fully completed and accepted by the county
superintendent (or by each county superintendent of highways) and such
acceptance certified as provided above.
