The provisions of the Division 8 shall not be construed
to relieve any officer of any duties now required by law of him with
relation to the auditing of public accounts or the disbursement of
public funds. Failure of the corporate authorities of any municipality
to comply with any of the provisions of this Division 8 shall not affect
the legality of taxes levied for any of the funds of such municipality.
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, any municipality which
files audits or audit reports with the Comptroller in compliance with
this Act shall not be required to file any additional audits or audit
reports with any state governmental agency providing motor fuel tax
funds to such municipality. Any such state governmental agency may
obtain copies of all audits and audit reports from the Comptroller.
