Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 5-44035. Outstanding indebtedness.
    (a) In case any unit dissolved pursuant to this Division has bonds or notes outstanding that are a lien on funds available in the treasury at the time of consolidation, such lien shall be unimpaired by such dissolution and the lien shall continue in favor of the bond or note holders. The funds available subject to such a lien shall be set apart and held for the purpose of retiring such secured debt and no such funds shall be transferred into the general funds of the county.
    (b) In case any unit dissolved pursuant to this Division has unsecured debts outstanding at the time of dissolution, any funds in the treasury of such unit or otherwise available and not committed shall, to the extent necessary, be applied to the payment of such debts.
    (c) All property in the territory served by the dissolved unit of government shall be subject to taxation to pay the debts, bonds, and obligations of the dissolved district. The county board shall abate this taxation upon the discharge of all outstanding obligations.
