(745 ILCS 10/9-105) (from Ch. 85, par. 9-105)
    Sec. 9-105. The board of a local taxing entity may, instead of following the procedure under subdivision (b) of Section 9-104 or when it considers the action advisable, issue general obligation or revenue bonds without referendum for the purpose of creating a reserve for or for the payment of any cost, liability or loss against which such entity may protect itself or self-insure pursuant to Section 9-103 or for the payment of which such entity may levy a tax pursuant to Section 9-107, including any or all tort judgments or settlements entered against or entered into by the entity or by or against another local public entity or an employee of that other public entity while acting within the scope of employment, either individually or where the local public entities have joined in an intergovernmental joint self-insurance contract which among other undertakings authorizes each local public entity to utilize its funds to protect, wholly or partially, any other local public entity or its employees against liability or loss in accordance with the intergovernmental contract. Such bonds may be issued in an amount necessary to fund a reserve created for any or all of the above described purposes including the discharge of obligations under such judgments or settlements. Such bonds shall not be considered debt under any statutory limitation, and may be issued in an amount, including existing indebtedness, in excess of any heretofore or hereafter imposed statutory limitation as to debt but subject to constitutional limits.
    Any bonds issued under this Section as limited bonds as defined in Section 3 of the Local Government Debt Reform Act shall comply with the requirements of the Bond Issue Notification Act.
