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.

65 ILCS 5/11-64-2

    (65 ILCS 5/11-64-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-64-2)
    Sec. 11-64-2. A certified copy of the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds provided for in Section 11-64-1 shall be filed with the county clerk in each county in which any portion of the issuing municipality is situated. Each such county clerk shall annually extend taxes against all of the taxable property contained in the municipality or in that portion thereof which is situated in his county at a rate sufficient to pay the maturing principal and interest of these bonds. This rate shall be extended against all of the taxable property of that municipality in addition to all other taxes now or hereafter authorized to be levied by that municipality.
    If any part of the tax liability created under this section is discharged from other sources, the corporate authorities of that municipality shall not apply any of the tax money collected under the provisions of this section to any object or purpose other than the discharge of the principal and interest on these bonds. The money so collected shall be held in the municipal treasury as a special fund for that purpose until the entire liability of that municipality upon these bonds is fully discharged. Before any part of the municipal revenue or income from any other source is applied in discharge of the interest or principal of these bonds, the municipal treasurer, comptroller, or other custodian of the funds of the municipality shall publish a statement setting forth fully the amount of funds so taken from other sources, and from what source and fund taken. This statement shall be published in like manner as is required for the publication of city ordinances before they become effective.
    Any officer who uses any of the tax money so collected for any other purpose than that authorized by the provisions of this section shall be liable to prosecution for diverting public funds from the uses to which they have been appropriated or set apart.
