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 5/9-2-4.5)
    Sec. 9-2-4.5. Special assessment for payment of costs associated with certain ordinance violations.
    (a) For purposes of this Section, "Code" means any municipal ordinance that requires, after notice, the cutting of grass and weeds, the removal of garbage and debris, the removal of inoperable motor vehicles, and rodent and vermin abatement.
    (b) In addition to any other method authorized by law, if (i) a property owner is cited with a Code violation, (ii) non-compliance is found upon reinspection of the property after the due date for compliance with an order to correct the Code violation or with an order for abatement, (iii) costs for services rendered by the municipality to correct the Code violation remain unpaid at the point in time that they would become a debt due and owing the municipality, as provided in Division 31.1 of Article 11 of the Illinois Municipal Code, and (iv) a lien has been filed of record by the municipality in the office of the recorder in the county in which the property is located, then those costs may be collected as a special assessment on the property under this Division. Upon payment of the costs by the owner of record or persons interested in the property, the lien shall be released by the municipality and the release shall be filed of record in the same manner as the filing of notice of the lien.
