Payment of judgment against county.
judgment against a county shall not, in any case, be enforced
against the lands or other property of a county; but when judgment is
entered against a county, the county board shall direct an order to be
drawn on the county treasurer for the amount of the judgment and costs,
which orders shall be paid as other county debts.
A. Whenever the county board in any county shall in any year determine
the amount of all taxes to be raised for county purposes, such board shall
include among the purposes for which such taxes are to be raised the
payment of any outstanding judgment or judgments against such county for
the payment of which no other provisions have been made.
B. The county board may provide for the payment of any such judgment or
judgments and the interest thereon in equal annual installments, not
exceeding however 10 in number, and may include one of such
installments in the amount of taxes to be raised for county purposes in
each year, but the aggregate amount of all taxes to be raised for county
purposes shall not in any year exceed the rate of 75 cents on the $100
valuation of property unless authorized by a vote of the people of the county.
