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. 11-58-5. The tax levied and collected as provided in this Division 58 shall be deposited in a special municipal fund to be used solely for the purpose of paying the proportion that is lawfully imposed upon the municipality, of the costs of the grade separations designated and described in the specified ordinance.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-58-6) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-58-6)
    Sec. 11-58-6. If at any time during the making of such grade separations, it appears to the satisfaction of the corporate authorities of the municipality, that the total sum of the tax authorized by the specified ordinance to be levied and collected will be insufficient to pay the proportion of the costs lawfully imposed upon the municipality, of those grade separations, the corporate authorities have the power, by ordinance, to set forth the total sum of the estimated deficiency and to provide for levying and collecting a direct annual tax, for not exceeding 5 successive years, sufficient to create a fund to pay, in annual installments, the estimated deficiency. However, this supplemental tax shall not exceed in any one year the rate of 1.25% of the value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, of all the taxable property in the municipality.
    The ordinance levying and collecting this supplemental tax, except as provided in this Section, shall be subject to all the conditions and limitations imposed by this Division 58 upon any original ordinance levying and collecting a grade separation tax. Before this supplemental tax shall be authorized, the supplemental ordinance shall be submitted to and approved by the electors of the municipality in the manner provided for in Section 11-58-3, unless the supplemental ordinance has been heretofore submitted to and approved by the electors of the municipality in the manner provided for in Section 2 of "An Act to enable cities, villages and incorporated towns having less than two hundred thousand inhabitants, to provide for defraying whatever portion may be imposed upon them by law of the costs and expenses of separation of the grades of railroads and of public streets and public places, and to provide for a direct annual tax therefor," approved June 17, 1929, as amended.
