(70 ILCS 2405/22a.16) (from Ch. 42, par. 317d.17)
    Sec. 22a.16. Assessment roll, notice and affidavit of compliance. The assessment roll shall contain (1) a list of all the lots, blocks, tracts and parcels of land assessed for the proposed improvement, (2) the amount assessed against each, (3) the name of the person or entity shown by the county collector's current warrant book to be the party in whose name general real estate taxes were last assessed on each such lot, block, tract or parcel and (4) the address, if any, for such person or entity as shown on such current warrant book. In case of an assessment in installments the amount of each installment shall also be stated. The officer making the roll shall certify under oath that he believes that the amounts assessed against the public and each parcel of property are just and equitable and do not exceed the benefit which in each case will be derived from the improvements and that no lot, block, tract or parcel of land has been assessed more than its proportionate share of the cost of the improvement.
    Notice shall be given of the nature of the improvement, of the pendency of the proceeding, of the time and place of filing the petition therefor, of the time and place of filing the assessment roll therein, and of the time and place at which application will be made for confirmation of the assessment, the same to be not less than 15 days after the mailing of such notices. The notices shall be sent by mail postpaid to each of the specified persons or entities in whose names general real estate taxes were last assessed at the addresses as shown in the assessment roll, but no such notice need be mailed to any such person or entity whose address is not so shown.
    The notice shall state the amount assessed against the specific property on account of which the notice is sent, the total amount of the cost of the improvement and the total amount assessed as benefits upon the public.
    Where the improvement is to be constructed with aid furnished by any agency of the federal government or other governmental agency, the notice shall set forth the estimated amount of aid to be so furnished.
    An affidavit shall be filed before the final hearing showing a compliance with the requirements of this Section and also showing that either the officer making the specified return or some one acting under his direction made a careful examination of the collector's current warrant book and that the report correctly states the persons and addresses as thereby ascertained. This report and affidavit shall be conclusive evidence, for the purpose of this proceeding, of the correctness of the assessment roll in these particulars. In case the affidavit is found in any respect wilfully false, the person making it is guilty of perjury and upon conviction thereof shall be punished according to the laws of this State.
