    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Counties Code is amended by changing Section
5-1092 as follows:
    (55 ILCS 5/5-1092)  (from Ch. 34, par. 5-1092)
    Sec. 5-1092. Inoperable motor vehicles. A county board may
declare by ordinance inoperable motor vehicles, whether on
public or private property, to be a nuisance and authorize
fines to be levied for the failure of any person to obey a
notice received from the county which states that such person
is to dispose of any inoperable motor vehicles under his
control, and may authorize a law enforcement agency, with
applicable jurisdiction, to remove, after 7 days from the
issuance of the county notice, any inoperable motor vehicle or
parts thereof. However, nothing in this Section shall apply to
any motor vehicle that is kept within a building when not in
use, to operable historic vehicles over 25 years of age, or to
a motor vehicle on the premises of a place of business engaged
in the wrecking or junking of motor vehicles.
    As used in this Section, "inoperable motor vehicle" means
any motor vehicle from which, for a period of at least 7 days
or any longer period of time fixed by ordinance, the engine,
wheels or other parts have been removed, or on which the
engine, wheels or other parts have been altered, damaged or
otherwise so treated that the vehicle is incapable of being
driven under its own motor power. "Inoperable motor vehicle"
shall not include a motor vehicle which has been rendered
temporarily incapable of being driven under its own motor power
in order to perform ordinary service or repair operations. In a
non-home rule county with a population of more than 500,000,
"inoperable motor vehicle" also includes any motor vehicle that
does not have a current license plate or current license tags
attached to it if a current license plate or license tags are
required under the Illinois Vehicle Code.
