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.
