Section 21-245 as follows:

    (35 ILCS 200/21-245)
    Sec. 21-245.  Automation fee.  The  county  collector  in
all  counties  may  assess  to  the purchaser of property for
delinquent taxes an automation fee of not more than  $10  per
parcel. In counties with less than 3,000,000 inhabitants:
    (a)  The fee shall be paid at the time of the purchase if
the  record keeping system used for processing the delinquent
property tax sales is automated  or  has  been  approved  for
automation by the county board. The fee shall be collected in
the same manner as other fees or costs.
    (b)  Fees  collected under this Section shall be retained
by the county treasurer in a fund designated as the Tax  Sale
Automation  Fund.  The  fund  shall  be audited by the county
auditor. The county board, with the approval  of  the  county
treasurer,  shall  make expenditures from the fund (1) to pay
any  costs  related  to  the  automation  of   property   tax
collections  and delinquent property tax sales, including the
cost of hardware, software,  research  and  development,  and
personnel  and (2) to defray the cost of providing electronic
