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.

In all cases where property is acquired or sought to be acquired by condemnation, the procedure shall be, as nearly as may be, like that provided for the exercise of the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act.

    Except as otherwise provided in this Code or in any other law of this state, no person or corporation, private, public, or municipal, other than a city or village, shall hereafter construct a utility over and upon such submerged lands within the limits or jurisdiction of any such city or village, or over or upon any public waters bordering thereon, without first securing the consent of the corporate authorities of such city or village.

    Every city and village has the power to bring and maintain all necessary suits, actions, or proceedings, in its corporate name, against any person for the recovery of the possession of such artificially made or reclaimed land.
