(70 ILCS 1801/155)
In the conduct of any investigation authorized by Section 145, the Port District shall, at its expense, provide a stenographer to take down all testimony and shall preserve a record of the proceedings. The notice of hearing, complaint, and all other documents in the nature of pleadings and written motions filed in the proceedings, the transcript of testimony, and the orders or decision of the Board constitutes the record of the proceedings.
The Port District is not required to certify any record or file any answer or otherwise appear in any proceeding for judicial review of an administrative decision unless the party asking for review deposits with the clerk of the court the sum of 75 cents per page of the record representing the costs of such certification. Failure to make such deposit is grounds for dismissal of the action.
