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. 11-94-5. Each municipality which issues bonds and constructs or acquires or improves a facility under this Division 94 shall charge for the use thereof at a rate which at all times is sufficient to pay maintenance and operation costs, depreciation and the principal and interest on the bonds. Such a municipality may make, enact, and enforce all needful rules and regulations for the construction, acquisition, improvement, extension, management, maintenance, care, and protection of its 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 facilities, as the case may be, and for the use thereof. Charges or rates for the use of the facility shall be established, revised, maintained, and payable as the corporate authorities may determine by ordinance.
    While any bond issued under this Division 94 is outstanding, such a municipality is required to maintain and operate its 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 facilities, as long as it can do so out of the revenue derived from the operation thereof. It shall not sell, lease, loan, mortgage or in any other manner dispose 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 facilities, until all of the bonds so issued have been paid in full, both principal and interest or until provision has been made for the payment of all of the bonds and interests thereon in full.
    Such a municipality shall install and maintain a proper system of accounts, showing the amount of revenue received from the operation of its natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks or golf courses. At least once each year, the municipality shall have the accounts properly audited. A report of this audit shall be open for inspection at all times to any taxpayer, or to a holder of any bond or coupon of any bond issued under this Division 94, or to their respective representatives.
    This amendatory Act of 1973 is not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
