(605 ILCS 115/7)
(from Ch. 137, par. 7)
The county board shall fix the rates of toll, and may from time to
time, alter and change the same, and in case of the neglect of the owner of
the bridge to keep the same in proper repair and safe for the crossing of
persons and property, may prohibit the taking of toll.
The General Assembly finds that electronic toll collection systems in Illinois should be standardized to promote safety, efficiency, and traveler convenience. If electronic toll collection is used on such bridge, the county shall cause the configuration of the electronic toll collection system to be compatible with the electronic toll collection system used by the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. The municipality may enter into an intergovernmental agreement with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to provide for such compatibility or to have the Authority provide electronic toll collection or toll violation enforcement services. Any toll bridges in Winnebago County that are in operation and collecting tolls on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly are exempt from the provisions of the Act.
