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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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 5/3.1-10-30)
(from Ch. 24, par. 3.1-10-30)
Before entering upon the duties of their
respective offices, all
municipal officers, except alderpersons and trustees, shall execute a bond with
security, to be approved by the corporate authorities. The bond shall be
payable to the municipality in the penal sum directed by
resolution or ordinance, conditioned upon the faithful performance of the
duties of the office and the payment of all money received by the officer,
according to law and the ordinances of that municipality. The bond
may provide that the obligation of the sureties shall not extend to any
loss sustained by the insolvency, failure, or closing of any bank or savings
and loan association organized
and operating either under the laws of the State of Illinois or the United
States in which the officer has placed funds in the officer's custody, if the
or savings and loan association has been approved by the corporate authorities
as a depository for those
funds. In no case, however, shall the mayor's bond be fixed at less than
$3,000. The treasurer's bond shall be an amount of money that is not less
than 3 times the latest Federal census population or any subsequent
census figure used for Motor Fuel Tax purposes. Bonds shall be filed
with the municipal clerk, except the bond of the clerk, which shall be
filed with the municipal treasurer.
