19 frontage road, that territory may be annexed by any
20 municipality by which it is bounded in whole or in part, by the
21 passage of an ordinance to that effect after notice is given as
22 provided in this Section. The corporate authorities shall cause

24 the notice is contemplated under this Section, to be published
25 once, in a newspaper of general circulation within the
26 territory to be annexed, not less than 10 days before the

30 municipality shall give at least 10 days prior written notice

10 of the district pursuant to Section 8.3 of the Cook County
11 Forest Preserve District Act.
