13inhabitants, except as otherwise provided in this Section, the
14corporate authorities shall pass an ordinance within the first
15quarter of each fiscal year, to be termed the annual

18within the 60 days preceding the end of the first quarter of a
19municipality's fiscal year and the disaster, emergency, or

13appropriation ordinance may be adopted at the same meeting at
14which the public hearing is held or at any time after that
15public hearing.

17on the appropriation ordinance, the corporate authorities may
