Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

(65 ILCS 5/) Illinois Municipal Code.

65 ILCS 5/11-111-5

    (65 ILCS 5/11-111-5) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-111-5)
    Sec. 11-111-5. If a railroad or street railway company has tracks located upon, or across any street in such an improvement district, then, in estimating the cost of the work, the railroad or street railway company shall be charged with the cost of the fill upon that street or crossing in the amount that it would cost the railroad or street railway company to make an independent embankment of the same height to receive its tracks upon that street or crossing. However, any railroad or street railway company has the same right to build its embankment or make its proportion of the improvement as is allowed to individuals. If a railroad or street railway company fails or refuses to comply with the municipal ordinances in this regard, the tracks of the delinquent railroad or street railway company shall be a nuisance, all of the railroad or street railway company's rights upon that street or crossing shall be forfeited, and the tracks removed as the work progresses.
