(5 ILCS 220/9)
(from Ch. 127, par. 749)
Any county may participate in an
intergovernmental agreement under
this Act notwithstanding the absence of specific authority under State law
to perform the action involved provided that the unit of local
contracting with the county has authority to perform the action. The authority
of the county shall be limited to the territorial limits of the local
unit with which the county contracts.
In the case of an intergovernmental agreement between a county and a
municipality, however, the agreement may provide that the county may perform an
action within the territorial limits of the municipality, within the contiguous
territory not more than one and one-half miles beyond the corporate limits and
not included in any municipality, or within both.
