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 5/6-107) (from Ch. 121, par. 6-107)
    Sec. 6-107. Road districts have corporate capacity to exercise the powers granted thereto, or necessarily implied and no others. They have power: (1) to sue and be sued, (2) to acquire by purchase, gift or legacy, and to hold property, both real and personal, for the use of its inhabitants, and again to sell and convey the same, (3) to make all such contracts as may be necessary in the exercise of the powers of the district.
    A road district shall not construct, reconstruct, improve, widen, relocate, repair, alter, or maintain a highway, road, street, alley, bridge, culvert, drainage structure, sidewalk, bicycle path, parking lot, driveway, or any other transportation-related facility that is outside of its county's boundaries unless such construction, reconstruction, improvement, widening, relocation, repair, alteration, or maintenance is part of the township and district road system, in an adjacent road district, is jointly performed with another road district through the sharing of road equipment pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement, or provided as necessary relief services following the occurrence of a disaster as defined by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act.
    As used in this Section, "maintain" or "maintenance" does not include mowing, gravel reclamation, snow removal or the application of salt, sand, or any other substance applied for the purpose of improving the safety of vehicular or pedestrian traffic in response to the presence or prediction of ice or snow.
