(70 ILCS 2805/28) (from Ch. 42, par. 439)
    Sec. 28. The board of trustees shall have the power to build and construct and to defray the costs and expenses of the construction of drains, sewers, or laterals, or drains, and sewers and laterals and other necessary adjuncts thereto, including pumps and pumping stations, made by it in the execution or in furtherance of the powers heretofore granted to such sanitary district by special assessment or by general taxation, or partly by special assessment and partly by general taxation, as they shall by ordinance prescribe. It shall constitute no objection to any special assessment that the improvement for which the same is levied is partly outside the limits of such sanitary district, but no special assessment shall be made upon property situated outside of such sanitary district, and in no case shall any property be assessed more than it will be benefited by the improvement for which the assessment is levied. The proceedings for making, levying, collecting and enforcing of any special assessment levied hereunder, the letting of contracts, performance of the work and all other matters pertaining to the construction and making of the improvement shall be the same as nearly as may be as is prescribed in Division 2 of Article 9 of the Illinois Municipal Code, as heretofore and hereafter amended. Whenever in said Division 2 the words "city council" or the words "board of local improvements" are used the same shall apply to the board of trustees constituted by this Act, and the word "mayor" or "president of the board of local improvement" shall apply to the president of the board of trustees constituted by this Act, and the words applying to the city or its officers in that Article shall be held to apply to the sanitary district created under this Act and its officers.
