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.

    Any 100 legal voters residing within the limits of such proposed district may petition the circuit court for the county in which such proposed district lies, to cause the question to be submitted to the legal voters of such proposed district whether or not it shall be organized as a tuberculosis sanitarium district under this Act. Such petition shall be addressed to the court and shall contain a definite description of the territory intended to be embraced in such district, and the name of such district. Upon the filing of such petition in the office of the clerk of the court of the county in which such territory is situated, it shall be the duty of such court to fix a day and hour for the public consideration thereof, which shall not be less than 15 days after the filing of such petition.

In the event that any other petition or petitions for the organization of a tuberculosis sanitarium district or districts in the same county shall be filed under this Act before the time fixed for the public hearing of the first petition, the court shall postpone the public consideration of the first petition so that the hearing of all said petitions shall be set for the same day and hour.
    Should 2 or more petitions be filed under this Act and come on for hearing at the same time and it shall be found by the court that any of the territory embraced in any one of said petitions is included in or contiguous with the territory embraced in any other petition or petitions, the court may include all of the territory described in such petitions in one district and shall fix the name proposed in the petition first filed as the name for said district. After the entry of the order fixing and defining the boundaries and the name of such proposed district, it shall be the duty of the clerk of the circuit court to certify the order and the proposition to the proper election officials, who shall submit the proposition to the voters at an election in accordance with the general election law.

    (70 ILCS 920/5.2) (from Ch. 23, par. 1705.2)
    Sec. 5.2.
    If the board of directors finds that it is no longer necessary to provide an in-patient facility to serve the residents suffering from tuberculosis, it may recommend to the county board that the tuberculosis sanitarium established and maintained in the district under this Act be closed.
    When such a recommendation is received, the county board shall determine what use should be made of the sanitarium facilities. If the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund was used to acquire the tuberculosis sanitarium property or to construct an addition thereto, or otherwise improve such property, the county board may, subject to the provisions of this section, use the facilities for other district purposes, may lease them to public or private agencies or may sell them.

If the county board uses such facilities for other purposes, then the use shall be for a consideration acceptable to the board of directors and the county board.
    Proceeds from the use, leasing or sale of sanitarium facilities under this Section shall be paid into the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund of the district.
    A board of directors, upon whose recommendation the district board has closed its sanitarium as provided in this Section, shall continue in existence and provide in-patient and out-patient clinical and follow-up services to the residents of its district in other private or public facilities of this State. Any of its equipment, facilities and other property which is required or useful in providing those services may be retained by the board of directors and applied to that use. The proceeds paid into the Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund of the district under this Section shall be used to pay the costs of providing the in-patient and out-patient clinical and follow-up services, including but not limited to the construction and maintenance of an out-patient clinic and the acquisition of equipment therefor. Any balance of the proceeds from the disposition of sanitarium facilities remaining after payment of the costs of in-patient and out-patient clinical and follow-up services under this Section may be used to abate the tax necessary to provide this in-patient care and the out-patient clinical and follow-up services.

    Sec. 14. The board of directors of any tuberculosis sanitarium district organized hereunder shall have power to raise money by general taxation, for any of the purposes enumerated in this Act, and power to borrow money upon the faith and credit of such district, and to issue bonds therefor. Such district shall not become indebted in any manner or for any purpose, to any amount including existing indebtedness in the aggregate exceeding 1/2% of the assessed value of the taxable property therein, as ascertained by the last equalized assessment for State and county purposes. No such district shall incur indebtedness for any purpose other than the acquisition of land unless the proposition to issue bonds or otherwise incur such indebtedness shall have been first submitted to the legal voters of such district and shall have been approved by a majority of those voting upon the proposition. The board of directors shall certify its resolution or ordinance and the proposition to the proper election officials, who shall submit the proposition to the voters at an election in accordance with the general election law. Before or at the time of issuing bonds, the board of directors shall provide by ordinance for the collection of an annual tax sufficient to pay the interest on such bonds as it falls due, and to pay such bonds as they mature and the tax to so pay the interest on the bonds as it falls due and to pay the bonds as they mature, shall not be permitted to increase the taxing power of the district as herein provided for. All bonds issued by any tuberculosis sanitarium district shall be divided into series, the first of which shall mature not later than 5 years after the date of issue and the last of which shall mature not later than 20 years after the date of issue.
    All general taxes levied by the board of directors of any tuberculosis sanitarium district shall be levied at the same time and in the same manner as taxes are levied for city and village purposes; provided, that the amount of taxes levied for one year shall not exceed the rate of .075 per cent of value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue; provided, further, that the foregoing limitations upon tax rates may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois. All moneys collected under this Act shall be paid to the treasurer of such district.
