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.

(Source: P.A. 77-1849.)

65 ILCS 5/11-5-9

    (65 ILCS 5/11-5-9)
    Sec. 11-5-9. Truants. The corporate authorities of any municipality may adopt ordinances to regulate truants within its jurisdiction. These ordinances may include a graduated fine schedule for repeat violations, which may not exceed $100, or community service, or both, for violators 13 years of age or older and may provide for enforcement by citation or through administrative hearings as determined by ordinance. If the violator is under 13 years of age, the parent or custodian of the violator is subject to the fine or community service, or both. As used in this Section, "truants" means persons who are within the definition of "truant" in Section 26-2a of the School Code. Local officials or authorities that enforce, prosecute, or adjudicate municipal ordinances adopted under this Section or that work with school districts to address truancy problems are designated as (i) part of the juvenile justice system, established by the Juvenile Court Act of 1987, and (ii) "juvenile authorities" within the definition set forth in subsection (a)(6.5) of Section 10-6 of the Illinois School Student Record Act. Because truancy is a gateway to crime and one of the most powerful predictors of juvenile delinquent behavior, a school district may disclose education records relating to attendance to juvenile authorities if the school district determines that the disclosure will enhance the juvenile justice system's ability to effectively serve, prior to adjudication, the student whose records are released. Enforcement of a municipal ordinance adopted under this Section is pre-adjudicatory because it helps minors avoid adjudicatory hearings under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. A school district may make a disclosure authorized under this Section only if the juvenile authority certifies in writing to the school district that the information will not be disclosed, without prior written consent of the parent or custodian of the student, to any other individual or entity, except as otherwise provided under State law. A home rule unit may not regulate truants in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Section. This Section is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of the powers and functions exercised by the State.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-5-10)
    Sec. 11-5-10. Sound devices. The corporate authorities of a municipality may, by ordinance, regulate sound devices. For the purposes of this Section, "sound devices" means any radio, tape recorder, cassette player, or any other device for receiving broadcast sound or reproducing recorded sound.
