(35 ILCS 200/29-15)
Payment of assessment.
When the Attorney General has certified
to the Director of Commerce and Economic Opportunity that the amount, in the
nature of a special assessment by which specified abutting State property has
been benefited by a specified local improvement, has been determined in
compliance with this Article, the Director shall, to the extent that
appropriations are available for that purpose, voucher the amount of that
assessment, or $25,000, whichever is less, for payment to the appropriate unit
of local government. When the amount appropriated in any fiscal year for those
purposes is insufficient to pay a special assessment totalling $25,000 or less
in full, the balance of that special assessment shall be vouchered for payment
from the appropriation for those purposes for the next succeeding fiscal year.
If the amount of the assessment exceeds $25,000, the Director of the
Department or the other State officer having jurisdiction over the property
affected shall include in the Department's budget for the next succeeding
fiscal year a request for the appropriation of the amount by which the
assessment exceeds $25,000, plus interest, if any, which shall be vouchered for
payment from that appropriation.
