(70 ILCS 605/6-8) (from Ch. 42, par. 6-8)
    Sec. 6-8. Notes and bonds-Resolution-Register-Calling prior to maturity.
    The commissioners shall, by proper resolution, determine the form of the notes or bonds to be issued, together with the date, amount, rate of interest and maturity of the same, and shall designate the assessments or installments of assessments against which the same are to be a lien. A copy of the resolution shall be filed with the clerk and recorded in the drainage record. The treasurer shall keep a register of the bonds and notes of the district, which register shall show the names and addresses of the registered holders, the serial numbers, amounts, rate of interest, date of issue, maturity dates, where the bonds or notes are payable, the amount received by the district for each bond or note and the assessment or installment against which the bond is a lien. The note and bond register shall at all reasonable times be available for inspection by any person interested.
    Any note or bond issued by a district after the effective date of this Act shall be subject to call prior to maturity whenever there are sufficient funds on hand in the bond fund to call one or more of such notes or bonds and to meet all payments of principal and interest due or to become due within the next 12 month period. Whenever the commissioners determine that sufficient funds are on hand in the bond fund, they shall by appropriate resolution also determine the number of the notes or bonds to be called and direct the treasurer to call such notes or bonds. If the number to be called is less than all of the notes or bonds outstanding against such fund, then the treasurer shall determine by lot the serial number of the notes or bonds to be called. The treasurer shall give the registered holder of each such note or bond being called notice by registered mail sent to the address shown on the note and bond register and by publishing a notice thereof in a newspaper of general circulation published in the county in which the district was organized. If no newspaper of general circulation is published in that county, then the notice shall be published in a newspaper having general publication in that county. The notice to be so mailed and published shall specify the issue and maturity dates of the notes or bonds called, the serial numbers of the notes or bonds called, the assessment or installments of assessment against which the notes or bonds are a lien, the date upon which the interest thereon will cease, which date shall be not less than 30 days after the publication and mailing of the notice and shall request that such notes or bonds be presented for payment and cancellation. If notice is given as hereinabove set forth, then such notes or bonds shall cease to bear interest after the date fixed in said notice. Each note or bond issued by a district shall contain a statement that it is subject to call prior to maturity as provided by this section, but the failure of any note or bond to contain such a statement shall not deprive the district of its right to call such note or bond prior to maturity as hereinabove provided.
