(70 ILCS 2405/6.1)
(from Ch. 42, par. 305.1)
Actions to impose a fine or imprisonment for violation of a
sanitary district ordinance or resolution adopted under authority of this
Act shall be brought in the corporate name of the sanitary district as
plaintiff. Such actions shall commence with a complaint or a warrant. A
warrant may issue upon execution of an affidavit by any person alleging
that he has reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be named in
the warrant has violated a sanitary district ordinance or resolution. A
person arrested upon such a warrant shall be taken without unnecessary
delay before the proper officer for trial.
Fines for the violation of sanitary district ordinances or resolutions
shall be established by ordinance or resolution and when collected shall be
paid into the sanitary district treasury at such times and in a manner
prescribed by ordinance or resolution.
A person who is fined for violation of a sanitary district ordinance or
resolution may be committed to the county jail or to any place provided by
ordinance or resolution for the incarceration of offenders until the fine
and costs are paid. No incarceration, however, shall exceed 6 months for
any one offense.
The committed person shall be allowed, exclusive of his board, a credit
of $5 toward the fine and costs for each day of confinement. The sanitary
district may make agreements with a county or municipality for holding such
persons in a facility operated by them for the incarceration of violators
of laws, ordinances or resolutions.
