(from Ch. 24, par. 7-1-30)
Whenever a part of a municipality has been annexed to an
adjoining township, which is wholly within the limits of another
municipality, under the Township Code, the
annexed territory may be annexed to the municipality within
which the township lies as follows: A petition may be presented to the
county board of the county within which is situated the annexing
municipality. It shall be signed by a majority of the electors of the
territory annexed to the township. If the county board finds that the
petition is signed by a majority of the electors of the territory, it shall
annex the territory to the designated municipality by resolution.
Thereupon, except as is otherwise provided in Section 7-1-1, the limits and
the authority of the annexing municipality shall be extended to include the
territory previously annexed to the township.
