(35 ILCS 200/4-25)
Bond of assessors.
Before entering office, every assessor and
supervisor of assessments, other than township or multi-township assessors,
shall enter into a bond, payable to the People of the State of Illinois in the
sum of two thousand dollars, or such larger sum as the county board shall
determine, with two or more sufficient sureties.
The bond of the supervisor of assessments shall be approved by the county
board, and bonds of other assessors by the president or chairman of the county
board. The condition of the bond shall be that the assessor or supervisor of
assessments will diligently, faithfully and impartially perform the duties of
the office during the term or portion thereof for which he or she was elected
or appointed. The bond shall be filed in the office of the county clerk and
recorded in a book to be provided for those bonds. Any taxing district, or
person suffering any loss resulting from an assessor's failure to perform any
of the conditions of the bond may sue to recover the loss in the name of the
People of the State of Illinois.
