(65 ILCS 5/11-119.2-11)
(from Ch. 24, par. 11-119.2-11)
This Division shall be construed liberally to effectuate
its legislative intent and purpose, as complete and independent authority
for the performance of each and every act and thing authorized by this Division,
and all authority granted shall be broadly interpreted to effectuate this
intent and purpose and not as a limitation of powers. This Division is
expressly not a limit on any of the powers granted any unit of local government
of this State by constitution, statute, charter or otherwise, other than
when the unit of local government is acting expressly pursuant to this Division.
B. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between this Division
and any other law or charter provision, the provisions of this Division shall prevail.
C. Any provision of this Division which may be determined by competent
authority to be prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as
to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or
unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and
any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate
or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
