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 5/11-130-7

    (65 ILCS 5/11-130-7) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-7)
    Sec. 11-130-7. There is hereby created a statutory mortgage lien upon the waterworks so purchased or constructed from the proceeds of the bonds authorized to be issued under this Division 130. This lien exists in favor of the holder of each of the bonds, and in favor of the holder of each of the coupons attached to the bonds. The waterworks shall remain subject to this statutory mortgage lien until the principal and interest of the bonds are paid in full. Any holder of bonds issued under this Division 130, or of any coupons representing interest accrued thereon, may, in a civil action, enforce the statutory mortgage lien hereby created, and may compel the performance of the duties of the officials of the issuing municipality set forth in this Division 130.
    If there is a default in the payment of the principal of and/or interest upon any of these bonds, the circuit court in any proper action may appoint a receiver to administer the waterworks on behalf of the municipality with power to charge and collect rates sufficient to provide for the payment of the bonds and interest thereon, and for the payment of the operating expenses and with power to apply the revenue in conformity with this Division 130 and the ordinance providing for the issuance of the bonds.

65 ILCS 5/11-130-8

    (65 ILCS 5/11-130-8) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-8)
    Sec. 11-130-8. Rates for water fixed precedent to the issuance of bonds shall not be reduced until all of the bonds have been fully paid, and, whenever necessary, may be increased in amounts sufficient to provide for the payment of the bonds, both principal and interest, and to provide proper funds for the depreciation account and operation and maintenance charges.
    If any surplus accumulates in the operating and maintenance fund in excess of the cost of maintaining and operating the waterworks during the remainder of the then current fiscal year, and during the next ensuing fiscal year, that excess may be transferred by the corporate authorities either to the depreciation account or to the bond and interest redemption account as the corporate authorities may designate. If any surplus accumulates in the depreciation account over and above that which the corporate authorities find may be necessary for the probable replacements which may be needed during the remainder of the then present fiscal year and the next ensuing fiscal year, that excess may be transferred to the bond and interest redemption account. If any surplus exists in the bond and interest redemption account that surplus shall be applied insofar as possible in the purchase or retirement of outstanding revenue bonds payable from that account, and for that purpose the corporate authorities are hereby authorized to purchase bonds not due in the open market at not more than the fair market value thereof.
