Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that a home rule municipality may file a petition to disconnect fire protection district territory from the district if: the municipality's fire department services at least 80% of the municipality; the disconnection will not cause the territory of the district to be noncontiguous; and the loss of assessed valuation by reason of the disconnection of the territory will not impair the ability of the district to render adequate fire protection service to the territory remaining in the district. Provides that territory disconnected shall remain liable for its proportionate share of any bonded indebtedness outstanding as of the date of disconnection. Provides for petition, hearing, notice, and objection requirements. Further provides that if a court finds that the petition complies with the Section and that the allegations of the petition are true, the court shall order that the territory be disconnected.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
70 ILCS 705/15d new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: provides that a municipality shall file an economic impact analysis with the county clerk of each county in which a fire protection district is located no less than 90 days prior to filing any action to disconnect territory located both within the municipality and the fire protection district; lists items to be included in the economic impact analysis; provides that within 30 days after the filing of an economic impact analysis, a municipality shall serve a copy of the economic impact analysis on the board of trustees of each impacted fire protection district by certified or registered mail and file an affidavit of that service with the clerk of the court in which the disconnection proceedings will be instituted; provides that disconnection of territory is not effective unless service is certified by filing the affidavit; provides that territory is disconnected from the Fire Protection District and annexed to the municipality effective on January 1 following the entry of a final court order finding that the petition meets specified criteria; and limits home rule powers.
