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. 5. Whenever the making of any part of an improvement or the locating of a route or any part thereof under the provisions of this Act will require that private property or property devoted to a public or semi-public use be acquired, the board of park commissioners, in its name, shall have the right and power to purchase the necessary property from the owner thereof, or, if compensation therefor cannot be agreed upon, to acquire and pay for said property together with any damage to land not taken, in accordance with the provisions for the exercise of the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act, provided, however, that the board of park commissioners shall not be required, in any case, to furnish bond.
