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 5/11-23-6

    (65 ILCS 5/11-23-6) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-6)
    Sec. 11-23-6. The corporate authorities of a city specified in this Division 23 may provide that bonds of the city be issued for the purpose of (1) constructing and equipping a hospital building or buildings, (2) purchasing and maintaining an existing nonsectarian public hospital within the city's corporate limits, or of (3) reconstructing, repairing, remodeling, and improving, or of (4) extending and equipping, an existing hospital building or buildings now owned and operated by the city. These bonds shall be authorized by an ordinance and shall mature at such time, not to exceed 20 years from their date of issue, and bear such rate of interest, not to exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable annually or semi-annually, as the corporate authorities may determine.
    The ordinance providing for the issuance of these bonds shall be submitted to the electors of the city at an election conducted in accordance with the general election law. The proposition shall be certified by the municipal clerk and submitted by the proper election authority. If a majority of the votes cast on this proposition are favorable, the bonds shall be issued for the purpose and in the amount specified in the ordinance. Prior to July 1, 1944, however, in the event that aid is to be received from any agency of the Federal Government in the construction of the project for which these bonds are to be issued and a declaration of that fact is set forth in the ordinance providing for the issuance of the bonds, the ordinance shall become effective immediately upon passage, without submission to the electors and notwithstanding any provision in this Code or in any other law to the contrary. The declaration of the corporate authorities that the project is to be paid for either in whole or in part by a grant from a Federal agency, as set forth in the ordinance, is conclusive. These bonds shall be signed by the president and secretary of the hospital board and by the mayor and city clerk, or commissioner of accounts and finance of the city, and shall be payable out of the taxes to be collected for hospital purposes in that city.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.

65 ILCS 5/11-23-7

    (65 ILCS 5/11-23-7) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-7)
    Sec. 11-23-7. Every hospital established or purchased under this Division 23 shall be maintained for the benefit of the inhabitants of the city in which it is established who are sick, injured, or maimed. But every inhabitant of that city shall pay to the hospital board, or to such officer as it shall designate, reasonable compensation for occupancy, nursing, care, medicines, or attendance, according to the rules and regulations prescribed by the board. The hospital shall always be subject to such reasonable rules and regulations as the hospital board may adopt in order to render the use of the hospital of the greatest benefit to the greatest number. The board may exclude from the use of the hospital all inhabitants and persons who wilfully violate those rules and regulations. The board may extend the privileges and use of the hospital to persons residing outside of the city but within this state, upon such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe by its rules and regulations.
