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 5/11-23-13

    (65 ILCS 5/11-23-13) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-23-13)
    Sec. 11-23-13. The corporate authorities of any city with a population of less than 100,000 which has established a public hospital is authorized to issue and sell revenue bonds payable from the revenue derived from the operation of the hospital for the purpose of (1) reconstructing, repairing, remodeling, or extending, or (2) equipping or improving an existing hospital building or buildings, or any addition or extension thereto or (3) constructing and equipping a new hospital to replace an existing hospital and acquiring a site therefor, or (4) refunding any such revenue bonds theretofore issued from time to time when deemed necessary or advantageous in the public interest. These bonds shall be authorized by an ordinance without submission thereof to the electors of the city, shall mature at such time not to exceed 40 years from the date of issue, and bear such rate of interest not to exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable annually or semiannually as the corporate authorities may determine, and may be sold by the corporate authorities in such manner as they deem best in the public interest. However, such bonds shall be sold at such price that the interest cost of the proceeds therefrom will not exceed 7% per annum, based on the average maturity of such bonds and computed according to standard tables of bond values.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
    The amendatory Acts of 1971, 1972 and 1973 are not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.

The corporate authorities of any such city availing itself of the provisions of Section 11-23-13 shall adopt an ordinance describing in a general way the building or buildings, or addition or extension thereto, to be constructed, reconstructed, repaired, remodeled, extended, equipped or improved. Such ordinance shall set out the estimated cost of such construction, reconstruction, repair, remodeling, extension, equipment or improvement and fix the amount of revenue bonds proposed to be issued, the maturity, interest rate, and all details in respect thereof and may contain such provisions and covenants which shall be part of the contract between the city and the holders of such bonds as may be deemed necessary and advisable as to the operation, maintenance, and management of the hospital, the establishment and maintenance of sinking funds, reserve funds, and other special funds, including construction funds, the fixing and collecting of rents, fees and charges for the use of the facilities of the hospital sufficient to produce revenue adequate to maintain such funds and to pay the bonds at maturity and accruing interest thereon, the issuance thereafter of additional bonds payable from the revenues derived from the hospital, the kind and amount of insurance, including use and occupancy insurance, to be carried, the cost of which shall be payable only from the revenues derived from the hospital, and such other covenants deemed necessary or desirable to assure the successful operation and maintenance of the hospital and the prompt payment of the principal of and interest upon the bonds so authorized. Revenue bonds issued under this Division 23 shall be signed by the president and secretary of the hospital board and by the mayor and city clerk or commissioner of accounts and finance of the city and shall be payable from revenue derived from the operation of the public hospital. These bonds shall not in any event constitute an indebtedness of the city within the meaning of any constitutional provision or limitation. It shall be plainly written or printed on the face of each bond that the bond has been issued under the provisions of Sections 11-23-13 and 11-23-14, that the bond, including the interest thereon, is payable from the revenue pledged to the payment thereof, and that it does not constitute an indebtedness or obligation of the city within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation or provision. No holder of any such revenue bond has the right to compel any exercise of the taxing power of the city to pay such bond or interest thereon. This ordinance shall be published and shall take effect as provided in Section 1-2-4.
