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.

    Sec. 205-105. Construction contracts; bids.
    (a) All contracts for construction work whose estimated cost will exceed $30,000 shall be let to the lowest responsible bidder after publication of notice for bids. Notice for bids shall be published once in a newspaper published and having general circulation in the township, if there is one. If there is no such newspaper, notice for bids shall be published in a newspaper published and having general circulation in the county. Notice for bids shall be published at least 10 days before the date set for receiving bids. Bids shall be opened and publicly read, and an award shall be made to the lowest responsible bidder within 15 days after the receipt of bids.
    (b) This Section shall not apply to engineering, legal, or other professional services, but it shall apply to the purchase of equipment unless the township board, by a resolution adopted by a three-fourths vote, determines that it is for the best interests of the township that advertising for bids for the equipment be dispensed with.
