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.

705 ILCS 405/6-8

    (705 ILCS 405/6-8) (from Ch. 37, par. 806-8)
    Sec. 6-8. Orders on county for care and support.
    (1) Whenever a minor has been ordered held in detention or placed in shelter care under Sections 2-7, 3-9, 4-6 or 5-410, the court may order the county to make monthly payments from the fund established pursuant to Section 6-7 in an amount necessary for his care and support, but not for a period in excess of 90 days.
    (2) Whenever a ward of the court is placed under Section 2-27, 3-28, 4-25 or 5-740, the court may order the county to make monthly payments from the fund established pursuant to Section 6-7 in an amount necessary for his care and support to the guardian of the person or legal custodian appointed under this Act, or to the agency which such guardian or custodian represents.
    (3) The court may, when the health or condition of any minor subject to this Act requires it, order the minor placed in a public hospital, institution or agency for treatment or special care, or in a private hospital, institution or agency which will receive him without charge to the public authorities. If such treatment or care cannot be procured without charge, the court may order the county to pay an amount for such treatment from the fund established pursuant to Section 6-7. If the placement is to a hospital or institution, the amount to be paid shall not exceed that paid by the county department of public aid for the care of minors under like conditions, or, if an agency, not more than that established by the Department of Children and Family Services for the care of minors under like conditions. On like order, the county shall pay, from the fund established pursuant to Section 6-7, medical, surgical, dental, optical and other fees and expenses which the court finds are not within the usual scope of charges for the care and support of any minor provided for under this Section.
