    AN ACT concerning transportation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Highway Code is amended by changing
Sections 6-205, 6-410 and 9-107 as follows:
    (605 ILCS 5/6-205)  (from Ch. 121, par. 6-205)
    Sec. 6-205. The district treasurer shall receive and have
charge of all moneys raised in the district for the support and
maintenance of roads therein, and for road damages except such
portions of the moneys which by Section 6-507 are directed to
be paid to the municipalities. He shall hold such moneys at all
times subject to the order of the highway commissioner and
shall pay them over upon the order of the commissioner, such
order to be countersigned by the town or district clerk. In
counties under township organization such moneys, other than
Social Security taxes required by the Social Security Enabling
Act, shall not be paid over until the board of town trustees or
highway board of auditors, as the case may be, has examined and
audited the claims or charges for which such order is drawn. In
no case shall payment be made on several orders of $5,000 or
less where such orders are in payment of a contract or
contracts, constituting a single project or transaction,
either for road construction or maintenance or for the purchase
of material, machinery or other appliance to be used therein,
if such plan or project costs more than $5,000, unless such
orders are accompanied by the written approval of the county
superintendent of highways or the highway board of auditors. He
shall keep an account in a book provided by the commissioner of
all moneys received, and all moneys paid out, showing in detail
to whom and on what account the same is so paid.
    The treasurer shall also present annually, within 30 days
after the end of the fiscal year of the district, to the
highway commissioner an itemized statement of receipts and
disbursements of the district during the fiscal year just
ended, which shall be sworn to.

    (605 ILCS 5/6-410)  (from Ch. 121, par. 6-410)
    Sec. 6-410. All final payments on contracts for the
construction or repair of roads, including the constructing or
repairing bridges or culverts, shall be made payable as soon as
the work under such contract is completed and accepted by the
highway commissioner and the county superintendent of
highways. The highway commissioner shall submit all warrants,
bills and orders for such final payments to the township board
of trustees or the highway board of auditors within 30 days
after the receipt of the bill.
(Source: P.A. 83-791.)
    (605 ILCS 5/9-107)  (from Ch. 121, par. 9-107)
    Sec. 9-107. Whenever the highway authorities are about to
lay a tile drain along any public highway the highway
authorities may contract with the owners or occupants of
adjoining lands to lay larger tile than would be necessary to
drain the highway, and permit connection therewith by such
contracting parties to drain their lands.
    However, all such contracts on township or district roads
for a sum in excess of $1,000.00 shall be made on behalf of any
road district by the highway commissioner thereof, with the
consent of the county superintendent of highways.
