(65 ILCS 5/11-99-3)
(from Ch. 24, par. 11-99-3)
No city is authorized to levy or collect the tax
provided for by Section 11-99-1 until the question of that levy has been
certified by the clerk and
submitted to the electors of the city at an election in accordance with
the general election law
and authorized by a majority of the votes cast on the question.
However, in any city whose electors have authorized the levy of a tax
under "An Act to provide for the assessment and collection of a general
tax by cities for parks and boulevard purposes," approved June 17, 1893,
as amended, that tax may be continued to be levied under Sections
11-99-1 through 11-99-3 without submitting the question of its levy to
the electors for approval.
