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.

    Sec. 11-94-1. Any municipality with a population of less than 500,000 has the power to construct or acquire and purchase or improve and operate natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks and golf courses, or any other recreational facility or any combination of facilities, borrow money and as evidence thereof to issue its bonds payable solely from the revenue derived from the operation of the natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks or golf courses, or any other recreational facility, or any combination of said facilities, as the case may be. These bonds may be issued in such amounts as may be necessary to provide sufficient funds to pay all the cost of the construction or acquisition and purchase or improvement of the natatoriums or swimming pools, indoor or outdoor tennis courts, handball, racquetball or squash courts, artificial ice skating rinks or golf courses, or any other recreational facility or any combination of facilities, including engineering, legal, and other expenses, together with interest on the bonds to a date 6 months subsequent to the estimated date of completion. In addition such bonds may be issued for the purpose of paying or refunding any unpaid obligations which are payable from the revenues of any of said facilities referred to above or any combination thereof. The bonds are negotiable instruments and shall be executed by the mayor or president, and the municipal clerk.
    In case an officer whose signature appears on the bonds, or coupons attached thereto, ceases to hold his office before the delivery of the bonds, his signature, nevertheless, shall be as valid and sufficient for all purposes as if he had remained in office until the bonds were delivered.
    A municipality has the power to acquire by purchase, gift, or condemnation, property necessary or appropriate for the purpose of exercising the powers granted by this Section.
    This amendatory Act of 1973 is not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
    This amendatory Act of 1975 is not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.

65 ILCS 5/11-94-1.1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-94-1.1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-94-1.1)
    Sec. 11-94-1.1. Whenever there are unpaid obligations previously issued which are payable solely from the revenue of any existing recreational facility, the unpaid obligations may be refunded by the issue and exchange therefor of revenue bonds, to be issued under this Division, with the consent of the respective holders of the unpaid obligations. The holders of revenue bonds issued under this Division, whether (1) for refunding or (2) for construction, acquisition, purchase or improvement, or both, have the same rights and privileges with respect to payment and there is no distinction between revenue bonds issued for the two purposes unless it is specifically provided in the ordinance authorizing the issuance of bonds that the bonds, or such ones thereof as may be specified, issued for such construction, acquisition, purchase or improvement, shall, to the extent and in the manner prescribed, be subordinated and be junior in standing, with respect to the payment of principal and interest and the security thereof, to such other bonds payable from the revenue of the facility or facilities specified in such ordinance. Whenever any unpaid obligations previously issued which are payable solely from the revenue or any facility or facilities under this Division are refunded, the unpaid obligations shall be surrendered and exchanged for revenue bonds of a total principal amount which shall not be more but may be less than the principal amount of the obligations exchanged and the interest thereon to the date of exchange. If any outstanding bonds issued under the provisions of this Division 94 are to be paid or refunded the ordinance shall state the means of paying or refunding such bonds.
    This amendatory Act of 1973 is not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
    This amendatory Act of 1975 is not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
