(35 ILCS 516/275)
Fund for payment of interest.
In counties of under 3,000,000
inhabitants, the county board may impose a fee of up to $10, which shall be
paid to the county collector, upon each person purchasing any mobile home at a
sale held under this Act, prior to the issuance of any certificate of purchase.
That amount shall be included in the price paid for the
certificate of purchase and the amount required to redeem under Section 300.
All sums of money received under this Section shall be paid by the
collector to the county treasurer of the county in which the mobile home is
situated for deposit into a special fund. It
shall be the duty of the county treasurer, as trustee of the fund, to
invest the principal and income of the fund from time to time, if not
immediately required for payments under this Section, in investments as are
authorized by Sections 3-10009 and 3-11002 of the Counties Code. The fund
shall be held to satisfy orders for payment of interest and costs obtained
against the county treasurer as trustee of the fund. No payment shall be made
from the fund except by order of the court declaring a sale in error under
Section 255. Any moneys accumulated in the fund by the county treasurer in
excess of (i) $100,000 in counties with 250,000 or less inhabitants or (ii) $500,000 in counties with more than 250,000 inhabitants
shall be paid each year prior to the commencement of the
annual tax sale, first to satisfy
any existing unpaid judgments entered pursuant to Section 235, and any funds
remaining thereafter shall be paid to the general fund of the county.
