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 5/11-130-10

    (65 ILCS 5/11-130-10) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-10)
    Sec. 11-130-10. Whenever a municipality owns and operates a waterworks system, whether purchased or constructed under this Division 130 or not, and desires to construct improvements thereto, it may issue revenue bonds under this Division 130 to pay for that construction. The procedure for that issuance, including the fixing of rates and the computation of the amount thereof, shall be the same as is provided in this Division 130 for the issuance of bonds for the purchase or construction of waterworks by a municipality, except that in the ordinance declaring the intention to issue the bonds and providing details in connection therewith, the corporate authorities shall find and declare, in addition to the other requirements set out in this Division 130, the value of the then existing waterworks and the value of the property proposed to be constructed. The revenue derived from the waterworks when the contemplated improvements are completed shall be divided according to those 2 values. So much of the revenue as is in proportion to the value of the improvements as distinguished from the value of the previously existing waterworks, as so determined, shall be set aside and used solely for the purpose of paying the revenue bonds issued for the improvements, together with the cost of the operation and the depreciation thereof, and that revenue shall be deemed to be income derived exclusively from the improvements.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-130-11) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-11)
    Sec. 11-130-11. Any municipality issuing revenue bonds under this Division 130 shall install and maintain a proper system of accounts, showing the amount of revenue received and its application. At least once a year the municipality shall have the accounts properly audited by a competent auditor.

    The treasurer of the municipality shall be custodian of the funds derived from income received from waterworks purchased or constructed either in whole or in part under the provisions of this Division 130. He shall give proper bond for the faithful discharge of his duties as such custodian, and this bond shall be fixed and approved by the corporate authorities of the municipality.
    All of the funds received as income from waterworks purchased or constructed in whole or in part under the provisions of this Division 130, and all of the funds received from the sale of revenue bonds issued to construct such a waterworks system, shall be kept separate and apart from the other funds of the municipality. The treasurer shall maintain separate accounts in which shall be placed (1) the interest and sinking fund, (2) the depreciation fund and (3) the operating and maintenance fund. He shall also provide for refunding outstanding certificates payable out of water revenue.

65 ILCS 5/11-130-12

    (65 ILCS 5/11-130-12) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-12)
    Sec. 11-130-12. Whenever all of the holders of unpaid water revenue certificates of a particular issue, which were issued prior to July 8, 1927, to pay the cost of constructing waterworks and are payable from the revenue thereof, offer in writing to exchange the certificates for refunding revenue bonds to be issued under this Division 130, the corporate authorities shall receive the certificates, and if found to be properly executed, may adopt an ordinance incorporating therein the offer of the certificate holders. This ordinance shall set forth the determined value of the waterworks as it then exists, the value of as much of the waterworks as was paid for by the issue of certificates, the unpaid portion of which are proposed to be refunded, and the details in connection with the issuance of the refunding revenue bonds in the same manner as is provided for in this Division 130. The ordinance also shall fix the minimum rates to be charged for water and pledge that revenue, if and when the refunding revenue bonds are issued, to pay these refunding revenue bonds. The revenue shall be applied as provided in this Division 130 and particularly in Sections 11-130-8 and 11-130-9.
    The amount of the refunding revenue bonds shall not exceed and may be less than the par amount of the certificates to be surrendered and shall not exceed and may be less than the determined value of so much of the waterworks as was paid for by that issue of certificates, less the amount of certificates paid. The ordinance shall be published, or posted, together with a notice of a hearing thereon, and a hearing shall be had thereon, in the same manner as is provided in this Division 130. After such a hearing the refunding revenue bonds specified in the offer may be issued, or a less amount thereof may be issued with the consent of the certificate holders, or the ordinance may be repealed, as the corporate authorities shall determine. If the refunding revenue bonds are issued, the certificates shall be surrendered and cancelled simultaneously therewith. Refunding revenue bonds issued under this Division 130 shall be payable only out of revenue derived from the waterworks as provided in the ordinance and according to the terms of this Division 130. Holders of refunding revenue bonds issued under this Division 130 have rights similar to those of holders of revenue bonds issued under this Division 130, including the power to apply for a receiver to operate the waterworks. The municipality is under the same obligations to the refunding bondholders as it is to holders of revenue bonds issued under this Division 130.
