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/) Illinois Municipal Code.

65 ILCS 5/Art. 11 Div. 88

    (65 ILCS 5/Art. 11 Div. 88 heading)

65 ILCS 5/11-88-1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-88-1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-88-1)
    Sec. 11-88-1. The corporate authorities of each municipality may grant to any political subdivision, municipal corporation or public authority of this state with authority to construct and operate transportation facilities, the right to construct and operate any facilities for local transportation within the municipality and to use the streets and other public places therefor. Such right may be granted for any duration of time and may be exclusive, subject to unexpired franchise ordinances, but shall not be exclusive of the public right in any of the streets and public places. Such grant shall not be effective unless and until it is adopted or approved by a majority of the electors of the municipality voting upon the proposition, and if such grant is by ordinance prescribing terms, conditions and limitations, it shall not be effective unless and until such ordinance is accepted in writing by the grantee and such acceptance is filed with the municipal clerk. Such ordinance may be submitted for approval or adoption at the same election at which any act may be adopted to create any political subdivision, municipal corporation or public authority for transportation of persons or property. The municipal clerk shall promptly certify such ordinance and proposition for submission at an election in accordance with the general election law. It shall not be necessary to print such ordinance in full in the notice of election or on the ballot, but the notice and ballot shall briefly indicate the nature of the ordinance setting out its title and date of passage. After any ordinance prescribing the terms, conditions and limitations of such grant becomes effective, extensions and additions to such local transportation facilities may be authorized by ordinance with or without provision for referendum. After any ordinance prescribing the terms, conditions and limitations of such grant becomes effective, in cities of 500,000 or more population, amendments thereto may be made by ordinance, subject to acceptance in writing by the grantee, as herein provided, without provision for referendum. Such amendments shall not impair the security of any indebtedness of the grantee.
