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. 6-104. Whenever the territory of any municipality is a part of a road district in a county not under township organization, and shall by resolution of its council or its president and board of trustees request the county board to organize it into a separate road district and designate the name thereof, the county board shall comply with such request, and provide for such organization of such municipality into a new road district under the name designated in such resolution of such city council, or president and board of trustees, if any be designated therein.
    Whenever a road district shall have been or shall hereafter be organized as provided in this Section and any of the territory of such municipality shall be disconnected from such municipality, the county board, upon receipt of a certified copy of the resolution or ordinance of the municipality disconnecting such territory, by resolution, shall disconnect such territory from such road district and annex it to an adjacent road district or districts. Whenever such municipality, at any one time shall have annexed or shall hereafter annex any territory, the county board, by resolution, shall disconnect such territory from the road district or districts in which it may be situated and annex the same to the road district in which such municipality is situated.
    All the powers vested in a road district organized out of the territory embraced within any municipality, including all the powers vested by law in the highway commissioner of a road district, shall be vested in and exercised by the city council, or president and board of trustees of such municipality, including the power to levy a tax for the proper construction, maintenance and repair of roads in such district as provided in Section 6--501 of this Code. Any such tax whether heretofore or hereafter levied shall be in addition to all other taxes levied in such municipality and in addition to the taxes for general purposes authorized in Section 8-3-1 of the Illinois Municipal Code, as heretofore and hereafter amended.
    All of the powers vested by law in the district clerk of a road district shall be vested in and exercised by the city, town or village clerk of such municipality.
    After a road district has been organized out of the territory embraced within a municipality, the offices and election of highway commissioner and district clerk shall be discontinued.
