Section 900.ILLUSTRATION A Surety Bond
The Principal and the Surety promise to pay the Illinois Department of Agriculture ("Department") the above penal sum unless the Principal provides closure for each site in accordance with 510 ILCS 77/15(e) and 35 Ill. Adm. Code 900.608. To the payment of this obligation the Principal and Surety jointly and severally bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.
Whereas the Principal is required, under Section 15(b) of the Livestock Management Facilities Act ("LMFA") to register at least one livestock waste lagoon with the Department; and
Whereas the Principal is required, under Section 17 of the LMFA to evidence financial responsibility for closure of each registered lagoon; and
Whereas the Surety is licensed by the Illinois Department of Insurance; and
Whereas the Principal and Surety agree that this bond shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois; The Surety shall pay the penal sum to the Department if, during the term of the bond, the Department issues a notice of liability to the Surety.
The Surety shall pay the penal sum of the bond to the Department within 30 days after the Department mails the notice of liability to the Surety unless the Surety assumes responsibility to provide closure and so notifies the Department. Payment shall be made by deposit of funds into a designated account upon which the Department is authorized to draw.
The liability of the Surety shall not be discharged by any payment or succession of payments unless and until such payment or payments shall amount in the aggregate to the penal sum of the bond. In no event shall the obligation of the Surety exceed the amount of the penal sum. If the Surety assumes responsibility to provide closure, expenditures made by the Surety for that purpose may exceed the amount of the penal sum, but the amount of the Surety's obligation under this bond is not affected.
The Principal may terminate this bond by sending written notice to the Surety; provided, however, that no such notice shall become effective until the Surety receives written authorization for termination of the bond from the Department.
In Witness Whereof, the Principal and Surety have executed this Surety Bond and have affixed their seals on the date set forth above. The persons whose signatures appear below certify that they are authorized to execute this surety bond on behalf of the Principal and Surety.
