(220 ILCS 30/4)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 404)
By October 1, 1965, or within such further reasonable time as may
be fixed by the Commission, each electric supplier shall make and file with
the Commission such map or maps as will clearly indicate the location in
this State of the supplier's existing lines. On November 1, 1965, or within
such further reasonable time as the Commission may determine, the
Commission shall find to be accurate those maps to which no objection has
been filed under this Section. If before November 1, 1965, or before the
end of such a reasonable time period determined by the Commission, an
electric supplier who may be adversely affected by an inaccurate map files
with the Commission a written objection to any map, the Commission shall
set a hearing on such map or maps and give reasonable notice to the
electric supplier filing the map and to the supplier filing the objection.
At the hearing, the Commission shall determine on the basis of the evidence
presented whether or not each map is accurate. After its determination the
Commission shall find to be accurate each map in question or require that a
revised map, made in accordance with its determination, be promptly filed
which when filed shall be found to be accurate by the Commission.
No public utility is required, however, to file a map showing its
existing lines in any county in which there are no existing lines of an
electric cooperative and which is not adjacent to a county in which there
are existing lines of an electric cooperative; and no electric supplier
needs to indicate on such a map, except as otherwise required by the
Commission, any existing line which is more than 5 miles away from an
existing line of another supplier.
No electric supplier is required to file a map showing its existing
lines in any incorporated municipality except that, if 2 or more electric
suppliers are furnishing electric service on the effective date of this Act
in any incorporated municipality, each such supplier shall file a map
showing the location of its existing lines in the portion of the
incorporated municipality where those lines are adjacent to the existing
lines of another electric supplier.
Such maps found to be accurate by the Commission as provided in this
Section are public records of the Commission and are prima facie evidence
of the location of the existing lines thereon portrayed.
