    Sec. 120-20. Park maintenance tax.
    (a) To provide a fund for the maintenance of parks, the township board may levy annual taxes not exceeding 0.02% (or the rate limit in effect on July 1, 1967, whichever is greater) of the value of the property in the township in any one year, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue. The tax shall be levied and collected at the time and in the manner that other township taxes are required to be levied and collected.
    (b) The limitations upon tax rates in subsection (a) may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
    (c) The maintenance tax, when levied and collected, shall be kept separate and distinct from all other township funds and shall be applied exclusively to the expense of maintenance and upkeep, adornment, and development of parks acquired by the township or to the acquisition of other lands to be used for public park purposes. In any township in a county having a population between 100,000 and 1,000,000, the moneys provided by the taxes authorized by this Section may be used for the acquisition and development of lands for park and golf course purposes under Section 120-15, subject to the requirements of that Section concerning the establishment of fees for the use of golf courses.
