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.

    Sec. 11-94-1. Any municipality with a population of less than 500,000 has the power to construct or acquire and purchase or improve and operate natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks and golf courses, or any other recreational facility or any combination of facilities, borrow money and as evidence thereof to issue its bonds payable solely from the revenue derived from the operation of the natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks or golf courses, or any other recreational facility, or any combination of said facilities, as the case may be.

The bonds are negotiable instruments and shall be executed by the mayor or president, and the municipal clerk.
    In case an officer whose signature appears on the bonds, or coupons attached thereto, ceases to hold his office before the delivery of the bonds, his signature, nevertheless, shall be as valid and sufficient for all purposes as if he had remained in office until the bonds were delivered.
