(65 ILCS 5/9-2-18) (from Ch. 24, par. 9-2-18)
    Sec. 9-2-18. The commissioners shall make an investigation as required and prepare and file in court their report accordingly. In this report the commissioners shall in one column describe the respective parcels of property to be taken or damaged for the specified improvement and, in counties in which a property index number system has been established in accordance with Section 9-45 of the Property Tax Code, shall give the index number in addition to the legal description; in another column the respective owners of record of those parcels of land, the name and residence of each such owner being set opposite his own property; in another column the name and residence of the occupant, where the property is occupied, so far as known to the commissioners or can be found upon diligent inquiry; in another column the amount of the value of each parcel to be taken for the improvement, setting the amount opposite the property to which it relates; and in another column the amount of damages, if any, which in the opinion of the commissioners, will result to any parcel of land not taken, by reason of the improvement, describing each parcel so damaged by a reasonably accurate description.
    The commissioners shall further estimate and report what proportion of the total cost of the improvement (including therein their estimate of value and damages, and, when an estimate is required by this Article, the estimate of the cost of such proceeding) will be of benefit to the public, and what proportion thereof will be of benefit to the property. The commissioners shall apportion the total cost of the improvement between the municipality and the property so that each will bear its relative equitable proportion. Having found these amounts, the commissioners shall further report what lots, blocks, tracts, and parcels of land will be specially benefited by the improvement, shall describe them by a reasonably accurate description, and shall apportion and assess the amount so found to be of benefit to the property upon the several lots, blocks, tracts, and parcels of land in the proportion in which they will be severally benefited by the improvement. But no lot, block, tract, or parcel of land shall be assessed a greater amount than it will be actually benefited, except that the apportionment and assessment shall include the anticipated fees for the recording of documents as provided in this Article.
