Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

60 ILCS 1/265-5

    (60 ILCS 1/265-5)
    Sec. 265-5. Distribution to school districts.
    (a) Whenever the electors attending an annual or special township meeting of a township in a county with a population of more than 1,000,000 (counties of the third class) determine that the general township fund of the township is in excess of the amount needed for township purposes during the remainder of the then current fiscal year, the electors may, by resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the electors attending the meeting, direct that all or any portion of the excess funds be distributed ratably to the various school districts maintaining grades 1 through 8 that are wholly or partly located in the township. In any distribution to school districts, the share of each school district wholly or partly located within the township shall be the proportion that the assessed valuation of all property within the school district or part of the school district in the township bears to the total assessed valuation of all property in the township.
    (b) For purposes of distribution ratably to school districts under this Section, the township supervisor shall determine the ratable distribution on the basis of the most recent assessment figures as supplied to him or her by the county assessor.
