(35 ILCS 200/2-15)
Voluntary establishment of multi-township assessment districts.
Any 2 or more contiguous townships in any one county, other than townships
provided for in Sections 2-5 and 2-10, may by majority vote
of each board of trustees of
the townships, form a multi-township assessment district comprising those
townships. This determination shall be made no later than October 1 of the year
preceding the year in which township officials are elected. If one or more of
those township assessor's offices is vacant, a determination to form a
multi-township assessment district may still be made at the time of that
vacancy. The assessor or assessors remaining in office in one or more of the
townships comprising the multi-township assessment district shall assume the
duties of multi-township assessor until a successor is elected or appointed and
qualified. If there is no township assessor remaining in office at the time,
the board of trustees of the multi-township assessment district, as defined in
Section 2-20, shall appoint a multi-township assessor for the unexpired terms
of the former elected township assessors as provided in this Code.
The township boards of trustees shall notify the supervisor of assessments
and the Department prior to December 1 of the year in which they have taken
any action prescribed in this Section.
