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.

605 ILCS 5/5-409

    (605 ILCS 5/5-409) (from Ch. 121, par. 5-409)
    Sec. 5-409. Partial payments on contracts let by a county for highway work may be made as the work progresses but no payment in excess of 90% of the value of the work then completed may be made until 50% of the work has been completed. After 50% of the work is completed, the county may, in its discretion, make partial payments without any further retention, provided that satisfactory progress is being made and provided that the amount retained is not less than 5% of the total adjusted contract price.
    At the discretion of the county and with the consent of the surety, a semi-final payment may be made when the principal items of the work have been satisfactorily completed. Such payment shall not exceed 90% of the amount retained nor reduce the amount retained to less than 1% of the adjusted contract price nor less than $500.00.
    Final payment under the contract shall not be made until it is shown that all money due for any labor, material, apparatus, fixtures or machinery furnished to the contractor or other indebtedness of the contractor incurred in connection with such work has been paid.
    Furthermore, if the contract is one that was approved by the Department, no final payment shall be made until the county has received approval by the Department to do so.
    This Section is also subject to the provisions of Section 23 of the Mechanics Lien Act.
