Cessation of authority organization.
(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, if a majority vote of the Board is in favor of the proposition to annex the authority to another authority whose boundaries are contiguous, or consolidate the authority into a municipality with which the authority is coterminous or substantially coterminous, or consolidate the authority into the county in which the authority sits, and if the governing authorities of the governmental unit assuming the functions of the former authority agree by resolution to accept the functions (and jurisdiction over the territory, if applicable) of the consolidated or annexed authority, then the authority shall cease. On the effective date of the annexation or consolidation, all the rights, powers, duties, assets, property, liabilities, indebtedness, obligations, bonding authority, taxing authority, and responsibilities of the authority shall vest in and be assumed by the governmental unit assuming the functions of the former authority.
The employees of the former authority shall be transferred to the governmental unit assuming the functions of the former authority. The governmental unit assuming the functions of the former authority shall exercise the rights and responsibilities of the former authority with respect to those employees. The status and rights of the employees of the former authority under any applicable contracts or collective bargaining agreements, historical representation rights under the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act, or under any pension, retirement, or annuity plan shall not be affected by this amendatory Act.
(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 2-1 of this Code, the provisions of this Section apply to all Civic Center Authorities created under this Code.
