Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 79. Manner and time of letting of contracts. Except as otherwise provided in Section 9-2-113 of the Illinois Municipal Code, as now or hereafter amended, within 6 months after judgment of confirmation of any special assessment or special tax levied in pursuance of this Act has been entered, if there is no appeal perfected, or other stay of proceedings by a court having jurisdiction, or in case the judgment for the condemnation of any property for any such improvement, or the judgment of confirmation as to any property is appealed from, then, if the petitioner files in the cause a written election to proceed with the work, notwithstanding the appeal, or other stay, steps shall be taken to let the contract for the work in the manner provided in this Act. If the judgment of condemnation or of confirmation of the special tax or special assessment levied for the work is appealed from, or stayed by a supersedeas or other order of a court having jurisdiction, and the petitioner files no such election, then the steps provided in this Act for the letting of the contract for the work shall be taken within 6 months after the final determination of the appeal or the determination of the stay unless the proceeding is abandoned as provided in this Act.
