§ 24. Management and operation of housing projects. It is hereby declared to be the policy of this State that each housing authority
shall manage and operate its housing projects in an efficient manner so as to enable
it to fix the rentals for dwellings at the lowest possible rates consistent with its
providing decent, safe and sanitary and affordable dwellings, and that no Housing
Authority shall construct or operate any project for profit, or as a source of revenue
to a city, village, incorporated town or county. To this end an Authority shall fix the rentals for dwellings in its projects at
no higher rates than it shall find to be necessary in order to produce revenues which
(together with all other available moneys, revenues, income and receipts of the Authority
from whatever sources derived) will be sufficient (a) to pay, as the same becomes
due, the principal and interest on the bonds of the Authority; (b) to meet and provide
for the cost of maintaining and operating the projects (including the cost of any
insurance on the projects or bonds issued therefor) and the administrative expenses
of the Authority; (c) to create (during not less than the ten years immediately succeeding
its issuance of any bonds) a reserve sufficient to meet the large principal and interest
payments which will be due on bonds in any 2 consecutive years thereafter, and to
maintain a reserve; and (d) to create a reasonable reserve solely from any contributions
or grants to the Authority from the federal government, the State, or any political
subdivision of the State for the purpose of meeting the cost of maintaining and operating
the project and of paying the principal and interest on its bonds. The management of low-rent public housing projects financed and developed under
the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as now or hereafter amended, 1 shall be in accordance with the provisions of that Act. The provisions of this Section 24 shall not apply to any project undertaken pursuant
to the additional powers conferred in Section 8.2 upon housing authorities in any
municipality or county having a population in excess of 1,000,000.
