Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (55 ILCS 5/5-1115) (from Ch. 34, par. 5-1115)
    Sec. 5-1115. Retail food establishments.
    (a) The county board of any county having a population of 2,000,000 or more inhabitants may license and regulate and impose license fees on all retail food establishments in the county except those retail food establishments which are located within any city, village or incorporated town in such county.
    (b) The county board of any county having a population of less than 2,000,000 inhabitants and having a health department created under Division 5-25 may license and regulate and impose license fees on all retail food establishments within both the incorporated and unincorporated areas of the county which fall within the jurisdiction of that health department as set forth in Section 5-25008.
    (c) The license fees which may be imposed under this Section must be reasonably related to the cost of inspecting and regulating the retail food establishments. License fees for food establishments operated by a unit of local government, school district, or not-for-profit organization may be waived by ordinance of the county board.
    (d) A county and a municipality may enter into an intergovernmental agreement that provides for the county's certified local health department to perform any or all inspection functions for the municipality. The municipality must pay the county's reasonable costs. An intergovernmental agreement shall not preclude a municipality from continuing to license retail food establishments within its jurisdiction.
    (e) For the purpose of this Section, "retail food establishment" includes a food service establishment, a temporary food service establishment, and a retail food store as defined in the Food Service Sanitation Code, 77 Ill. Adm. Code Part 750, and the Retail Food Store Sanitation Code, 77 Ill. Adm. Code Part 760.
