may be allowed for compliance therewith as the commissioner deems necessary. After the
expiration of the time prescribed in the notice, the department shall at the earliest possible
time bring suit in the Circuit Court of the county in which such public body is located to
enjoin the award of such contract for a public works or any further work or payments
thereunder if the contract has been awarded until the requirements of such notice are
complied with. The court may issue a temporary restraining order without notice to the
defendant in such action. Upon final hearing thereof, if the court is satisfied that the
requirements of the notice by the department to the defendant were not unreasonable or
arbitrary, it shall issue an order enjoining the defendant from awarding such contract for a
public works or any further work or payments thereunder if the contract has been awarded
until the notice is complied with. Such injunction shall continue operative until the court
is satisfied that the requirements of the notice have been complied with and the court

invested in it in other similar cases. Both the plaintiff and the defendant in such action
have the same rights of appeal as are provided by law in other injunction actions. Effective: July 15, 2010
