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 5/11-90-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-90-2)
    Sec. 11-90-2. The corporate authorities shall not grant the use of or the right to lay tracks in any street of the municipality to any railroad or street railway corporation except upon the petition of the owners of record of the land representing more than one-half of the frontage of the street, or so much thereof as is sought to be used for railroad or street railway purposes. Whenever the street or part thereof sought to be used is more than one mile in extent, no petition of landowners shall be valid unless the petition shall be signed by the owners of record of the land representing more than one-half of the frontage of each mile and of the fraction of a mile, measuring from the initial point specified in the petition, of the street or of the part thereof sought to be used for railroad or street railway purposes. However, the corporate authorities, without any petition of landowners, may grant the right to lay, maintain and also to operate railroad or street railway tracks, in, upon, or along any street, alley, or public place of the municipality in which the tracks are already laid at the time of making the grant. Also the corporate authorities, without any petition of landowners, may grant the use of or the right to lay tracks in any tunnel or subway beneath the surface of any street, alley, or public place.
