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 5/11-92-6

    (65 ILCS 5/11-92-6) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-92-6)
    Sec. 11-92-6. The city or village has power to borrow money by issuing its bonds in anticipation of its revenue from such harbor or from any buildings, structures or facilities to accomplish any of the purposes of this Division 92 and to refund such bonds. Such bonds shall be authorized by ordinance and may be issued in one or more series, and bear dates of maturity at such time or times not to exceed 40 years from their respective dates, bear interest at such rates not exceeding the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable semi-annually, be in such denominations, be in such form either coupon or registered, be executed in such manner, be payable in such medium of payment at such place, be subject to such terms of redemption with or without premium, and may be registerable as to principal or as to both principal and interest as the ordinance may provide.
    The bonds are negotiable instruments. The bonds shall be sold at a price so that the interest cost of the proceeds thereof shall not exceed 7% per annum, payable semi-annually, computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values, and shall be sold in such manner and at such time as the city or village shall determine.
    Pending the preparation or execution of definitive bonds, interim receipts or certificates or temporary bonds may be delivered to the purchasers or pledgees of these bonds. These bonds bearing the signature of officers in office on the date of the signing thereof shall be valid and binding obligations notwithstanding that before delivery thereof and payment therefor any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon cease to be such officers.
    No holder of any bond issued under this law shall ever have the right to compel any exercise of taxing power of the city or village to pay the bond or interest thereon. Each bond issued under this Division 92 is payable solely from the revenue derived from the operation of the harbor and facilities. The bond shall not in any event constitute a debt of the city or village within any statutory or constitutional limitations, and this shall be plainly stated on the face of each bond.
    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.
