    AN ACT concerning local government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Municipal Code is amended by
changing Section 1-7-2 as follows:
    (65 ILCS 5/1-7-2)  (from Ch. 24, par. 1-7-2)
    Sec. 1-7-2. Whenever in this Code any provision thereof is
based upon the number of inhabitants, the number of inhabitants
of the municipality shall be determined by reference to the
latest census taken by authority of the United States or this
state, or of that municipality. It is the duty of the Secretary
of State, upon the publication of any state or United States
census or the certification of any municipal census referenced
under Section 1-7-1, to certify to each municipality the number
of inhabitants, as shown by that census. In the event that a
partial census is conducted pursuant to Section 1-7-1, the
Secretary of State shall certify the total number of
inhabitants of the municipality as the number reflected by the
last complete census of the municipality adjusted by the net
increase or decrease reflected by the partial census. And the
several courts in this state shall take judicial notice of the
population of any municipality, as the population appears from
the latest federal, state, or municipal census so taken,
certified, and adjusted.
