Air contamination control.
For the purpose of lessening
or preventing the discharge of air contaminants, a county board may
prescribe by ordinance for the regulation of (1) the
design and installation of accessory or appurtenant parts and equipment of
buildings and structures and of uses of land connected with the emission of
air contaminants, (2) the operation or use of equipment and appliances
emitting air contaminants, (3) the conduct or carrying on of uses of land
which causes the emission of air contaminants, and (4) the abatement of an
operation, activity or use causing air contamination. For the purposes of
this Section, "air contaminant" means and includes but is not limited to
the following: dust, soot, mist, smoke, fumes, fly ash, vapor, corrosive
gas or other discharge and any other air borne material or substance that
is offensive, nauseous, irritating or noxious to humans or other animal
The county board of any county may make contracts providing for a
program of joint air contamination control within the jurisdiction of the
contracting parties and providing terms and conditions that are not in
conflict with this Section with the corporate authorities of any one or
more of the following:
(a) any other county or counties;
(b) any one or more cities, villages or incorporated towns; or
(c) adjoining areas of another State.
The presiding officer of any county board desiring to so contract shall
appoint, with the advice and consent of the county board, a committee of no
more than 3 of its own members to negotiate the terms and conditions of the
proposed contract which shall be subject to approval by the county board.
The rules and regulations for air contamination control established
pursuant to the terms and conditions of such approved contract shall be
adopted by ordinance by each contracting county.
Whenever any county board enters a contract authorized by this Section,
that board shall include in the annual appropriation ordinance for each
fiscal year, an appropriation of a sum of money sufficient to pay the
amount which, by the terms of the contract, is to become due and payable
from that county during the current fiscal year.
