(70 ILCS 705/11e)
(from Ch. 127 1/2, par. 31e)
The board of trustees of any fire protection district is authorized
to plan, adopt, implement and maintain an addressing system within the district
for the purpose of enabling the district to provide fast delivery of fire
fighting and emergency medical care services. Such addressing system may
include, but shall not be limited to, mapping to identify property locations,
numbering property locations, designation of directional systems for reaching
specific locations quickly and installation of property markers at specific
locations on property within the district.
If any part of a fire protection district is or in the future shall become
situated wholly or partially within a county or municipality and such municipality
or county has or shall in the future create its own numbering system, no
such system created by a fire protection district shall be deemed to supersede
such county or municipal system for any purpose.
All costs incurred by a fire protection district under the authority of
this Section shall be paid from the general funds of the district. However,
the trustees may enter into agreements with other units of local government
to share such costs.
