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.

    (70 ILCS 2405/16.9) (from Ch. 42, par. 315.9)
    Sec. 16.9. The trustees of the sanitary district may acquire, by purchase or contract with an individual, corporation or municipality, a waterworks sufficient for the needs of the inhabitants of the district. In the event that the trustees are unable to agree with any person, corporation or municipality upon the terms under which it may acquire such a waterworks under this Act, then the right to obtain such waterworks may be acquired by condemnation in a circuit court by proceedings in the manner as near as may be as is provided for the exercise of the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act. The compensation or rates to be paid for such waterworks and the manner of payment shall be determined by the judgment of the court wherein such proceedings take place.
