7     Sec. 15. Acquisition of property. In addition to any other
8 powers the the City may have, and notwithstanding any other law
9 to the contrary, the City may acquire by gift, grant, lease,
10 purchase, condemnation (including condemnation by quick take

12 otherwise any right, title, or interest in any private
13 property, property held in the name of or belonging to any

25 acquire (other than by condemnation by quick take under Section

4 property is subject to Section 7-103.149 of the Code of Civil
5 Procedure.
