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.

In addition to all other means or methods authorized by law for the repair, maintenance, resurfacing, or reconstruction of street pavements, any municipality, by ordinance, may provide for the resurfacing of streets paved by macadam, brick, granite, blocks, asphalt, cement, or other type of pavement, when that pavement becomes disintegrated at the surface or by reason of wear, usage, or lapse of time becomes otherwise inadequate, defective, or imperfect. The municipality, by that ordinance, may provide for the payment of the whole or any part of the cost of the resurfacing of those streets (1) by special taxation of the lots or parcels of land fronting upon those streets, or (2) by special assessment upon the property benefited by the improvement of those streets through the resurfacing, or (3) by apportioning the cost of the resurfacing so that part of the cost will be paid by special assessment upon the property benefited and part of it by appropriation from the fund accumulated through the vehicle tax levied in accordance with the statute for purposes of street and alley improvement or repair.
