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

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.

Every such municipality may acquire by dedication,
contract, purchase, or condemnation all property and rights, necessary or
proper, within the corporate limits of the municipality, for
hall purposes, and for these purposes may (1) appropriate money, (2) levy
and collect taxes, (3) borrow money on the credit of the municipality, and (4)
issue bonds therefor.
In all cases where property is acquired or sought to be acquired by
condemnation, the procedure shall be, as nearly as may be, like that
provided for the exercise of the right of eminent
domain under the Eminent Domain Act.
