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.

605 ILCS 5/6-307

    (605 ILCS 5/6-307) (from Ch. 121, par. 6-307)
    Sec. 6-307. If the highway commissioner, or upon appeal from his decision, the county superintendent of highways, shall enter a preliminary order for the laying out, widening, alteration or vacation of a township or district road, the highway commissioner or county superintendent of highways, as the case may be, shall cause a survey and plat of such township or district road to be made by a competent surveyor who shall report such survey and plat to the highway commissioner or county superintendent, as the case may be, giving the courses and distances and specifying the land over which such road is to pass; in which he may make such changes between the termini of the road described in the petition, as the convenience and interest of the public in his judgment may require. Upon the petition of 12 land owners residing in the district where the road is situated, it shall be the duty of the highway commissioner or county superintendent, as the case may be, within a reasonable time to employ a competent surveyor and have any road designated in such petition to be once resurveyed.
