(from Ch. 24, par. 9-2-119)
For the purpose of anticipating the collection of the
second and succeeding installments, provided for in this Division 2, a
municipality may issue bonds, payable out of these installments, bearing
interest at a rate specified in the ordinance referred to in Section 2-9-10
of the Illinois Municipal Code and not more than the rate the installments
of the assessment against which the bonds are issued bear,
payable annually and signed by such officers as may be by ordinance
prescribed. Bonds shall be issued in sums of $100, or some multiple
thereof, and shall be dated and draw interest from the date of their
issuance. Each bond shall state on its face out of which installment it is
payable, and shall state, by number or other designation, the assessment to
which that installment belongs. The principal of these bonds shall not
exceed, in the aggregate, the amount of the deferred installments, and
shall be divided into as many series as there are deferred installments.

which is not required for the payment of any vouchers or bonds issued
against that installment, that surplus shall be applied toward the payment
of any outstanding vouchers or bonds already issued or to be issued, as the
case may be, against any other installment or installments.
Each series shall become due at some time in the year in which the
corresponding installment will mature, the date to conform, as nearly as
may be, to the time when that installment will be actually collected. This
time shall be estimated and determined by the municipal officers issuing
the bonds. But it is lawful to provide in the case of any one or more of
the bonds in any series, that that bond or bonds shall not become due until
some subsequent date, not later than December 31 next succeeding the
January in which the installment against which that series is issued will
