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. 5-2. Original assessments - Property subject to assessment. Upon the Organization of the district, the commissioners shall proceed to make out their assessment roll of benefits, damages and compensation, and they shall include therein all lands, lots, railroads, and other property within the district other than public highways, streets and alleys, which, in their opinion, will be benefited, taken or damaged by the proposed work. Whenever another district or a municipal corporation exercising drainage powers has been made a party to the proceedings to organize the district, then the commissioners shall also include such other district or municipal corporation in their assessment roll.
