Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

(65 ILCS 5/) Illinois Municipal Code.

65 ILCS 5/11-110-3

    (65 ILCS 5/11-110-3) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-110-3)
    Sec. 11-110-3. Whenever, in the judgment of the corporate authorities of a city or village, it becomes necessary or advantageous for the proper construction of improvements specified in Section 11-110-1 to enlarge, construct, or improve a natural or artificial drain outside the corporate limits of the city or village to obtain a proper outlet, the corporate authorities have the power to acquire the right of way therefor under the provisions of the statutes relating to the exercise of the right of eminent domain. Upon the establishment of this improvement, by the confirmation of the assessment therefor, the corporate authorities have the power to contract with all persons owning or interested in property or drains, outside the corporate limits of the city or village, who will be benefited by the improvement, for payment to the city or village of such an amount as the improvement will benefit those persons. In case of a failure to agree on the amount to be paid for these benefits the corporate authorities of the city or village have the power to sue for and recover the amount in a civil action in any court of competent jurisdiction in this state. The amount recovered or realized by such an agreement or proceeding shall become a part of the money raised to pay for the improvement, and may be refunded in accordance with the provisions of Section 9-2-74.
