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.
(225 ILCS 470/19)
(from Ch. 147, par. 119)
Subject to the annual training provisions of Section 17, the sealer of a city, and each of his deputy sealers when acting
under his instructions and at his direction, has the same powers and duties
within the city for which appointed as are conferred upon the director by
Sections 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 56 of this Act. With respect to
Section 10, in cities of less than 200,000 population, the powers and
duties shall be strictly limited to weighing and measuring devices used in
retail trade including, for example, weighing scales of a nominal capacity
not greater than 400 pounds, retail liquid-measuring devices, taximeters,
odometers, fabric-measuring devices and cordage-measuring devices.
The city inspector of weights and measures shall keep a complete record
of all his official acts and shall submit an annual report to the council
of the city, and an annual report (by January 15) under oath to the Director of
Agriculture on blanks furnished by him, and any special reports that the
Director of Agriculture may request. Failure of a city sealer of weights and measures and each of his or her deputy sealers to attend annual training workshops conducted by the Department or to provide an annual report to the Director or any other special report that the Director requests may invalidate the authority of a city sealer to enforce any provision of this Act or its regulations.
