Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 28-15. Approval of petition by corporate authority; effect. If the corporate authority is satisfied with the proposed division, it shall cause to be indorsed upon or attached to the petition its approval by its clerk or secretary, under its corporate seal. The approved petition shall be filed and recorded in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the land is situated, and the apportioned assessment shall stand in place of the original assessment and the several amounts so apportioned shall be liens upon the several parcels charged, respectively. For the purpose of collecting the assessment all proceedings shall be had and taken as if the assessment and installments had been made and apportioned in the first instance according to the apportioned description and amounts. The respective owners shall be held to have waived every and all objections to the assessment and the apportionment. This Article does not apply to any parcel of land on which any delinquent installment remains due and unpaid.

    Sec. 28-20. Apportionment by court. If the owners are unable to agree as to the apportionment, or any of them are under legal disability, one or more of them may file a petition with the circuit court of the county in which the land so assessed is situated, substantially in the form provided in Section 28-10. The corporate authority, together with all owners or persons interested, not joined as petitioners, and unknown owners, if any, shall be made parties defendant. All proceedings shall be had as in other civil cases. The court may hear and determine the case according to the right of the matter. A copy of the record of the proceedings of the court relating to the premises in case of an apportionment, duly certified, shall be filed and recorded in the office of the county clerk. As to the land covered by the court's order, the owners of the land, the apportionment, and the collection of the several amounts apportioned, the proceedings have the same force and effect as is provided in Section 28-15 when the corporate authorities approved a petition.

No amount may be claimed from the State by or on behalf of any unit of local government for any local improvement made by special assessment or special tax that benefits, or is alleged to benefit, abutting property owned by the State unless the State has been made a party to all proceedings, has been given all notices, and has been afforded the same opportunities for hearing and for objecting to the assessment in the same manner and under the same conditions as provided in the law applicable to the making of the local improvement by special assessment or special tax by that unit of local government.
    For the purposes of this Article, any notices required under applicable law must be sent by registered or certified mail to the Director of the Department or the other State officer having jurisdiction over the State property affected, to the Director of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, and to the Attorney General.

When the Attorney General has certified to the Director of Commerce and Economic Opportunity that the amount, in the nature of a special assessment by which specified abutting State property has been benefited by a specified local improvement, has been determined in compliance with this Article, the Director shall, to the extent that appropriations are available for that purpose, voucher the amount of that assessment, or $25,000, whichever is less, for payment to the appropriate unit of local government. When the amount appropriated in any fiscal year for those purposes is insufficient to pay a special assessment totalling $25,000 or less in full, the balance of that special assessment shall be vouchered for payment from the appropriation for those purposes for the next succeeding fiscal year.
    If the amount of the assessment exceeds $25,000, the Director of the Department or the other State officer having jurisdiction over the property affected shall include in the Department's budget for the next succeeding fiscal year a request for the appropriation of the amount by which the assessment exceeds $25,000, plus interest, if any, which shall be vouchered for payment from that appropriation.
