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.

110 ILCS 805/7-25

    (110 ILCS 805/7-25) (from Ch. 122, par. 107-25)
    Sec. 7-25. Issuance of bonds; terms and sale. The board may incur an indebtedness and issue bonds for the purpose of erecting, purchasing or otherwise acquiring buildings suitable for community college use, transferring funds to the Capital Development Board for community college building purposes, erecting temporary community college structures, erecting additions to, repairing, rehabilitating and replacing existing community college buildings and temporary community college structures, furnishing and equipping community college buildings and temporary community college structures, and purchasing or otherwise acquiring and improving sites for such purposes.
    The bonds may not be issued until the proposition of authorizing such bonds has been certified to the proper election officials, who shall have submitted it to the electors of the city at a regular scheduled election in accordance with the general election law, and approved by a majority of the electors voting upon that question.
    The board shall adopt a resolution providing for certifying that proposition for such an election. In addition to the requirements of the general election law the notice of the referendum must contain the amount of the bond issue, maximum rate of interest and purpose for which issued. This notice shall be published in accordance with the general election law.
    The proposition shall be in substantially the following form:
    Shall bonds in the amount of
$............ be issued by the
Board of Community College District        YES
No....., County of.... and State of

measure) bearing interest at the
rate of not to exceed the maximum
rate authorized  by the Bond               NO
Authorization Act, as amended at the
time of the making of the contract?
    Whenever the board desires to issue bonds as herein authorized, it shall adopt a resolution designating the purpose for which the proceeds of the bonds are to be expended and fixing the amount of the bonds proposed to be issued, the maturity thereof, and optional provisions, if any, the rate of interest thereon, and the amount of taxes to be levied annually for the purpose of paying the interest upon and the principal of such bonds.
    The bonds shall bear interest at the rate of not more than the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, and shall mature within not to exceed 20 years from their date, and may be made callable on any interest payment date at par and accrued interest, after notice has been given, at the time and in the manner provided in the bond resolution.
    The bonds shall be issued in the corporate name of the community college district, and they shall be signed by the chairman and secretary of the community college board. The bonds shall also be registered, numbered and countersigned by the treasurer who receives the taxes of the district. The registration shall be in a book in which shall be entered the record of the election authorizing the board to borrow money and a description of the bonds issued, including the number, date, to whom issued, amount, rate of interest and when due.
    The bonds shall be sold by the board upon such terms as are approved by the board after advertisement for bids, and the proceeds thereof shall be received by the community college treasurer, and expended by the board for the purposes provided in the bond resolution.
    The community college treasurer shall, before receiving any of such money, execute a surety bond conditioned upon the faithful discharge of his duties with a surety company authorized to do business in this State, which surety bond shall be approved by the community college board and filed as otherwise required under this Act for the treasurer's bond. The penalty of the surety bond shall be in the amount of such bond issue. The surety bond shall be in substantially the same form as the bond otherwise required under this Act for the treasurer and when so given shall fully describe the bond issue which it specifically covers and shall remain in force until the funds of the bond issue are fully disbursed in accordance with the law.
    Before or at the time of issuing any bonds herein authorized, the board shall by resolution provide for the levy and collection of a direct annual tax upon all the taxable property of such community college district sufficient to pay and discharge the principal thereof at maturity and to pay the interest thereon as it falls due. Such tax shall be levied and collected in like manner with the other taxes of the community college district and shall be in addition to and exclusive of the maximum of all other taxes which the board is authorized by law to levy for community college purposes. Upon the filing in the office of the county clerk of the county wherein such community college district is located of a certified copy of any such ordinance, the county clerk shall extend the tax therein provided for, including an amount to cover loss and cost of collecting such taxes and also deferred collections thereof and abatements in the amounts of such taxes as extended upon the collector's books. The ordinance shall be in force upon its passage.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
