Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

As used in this Section, "applicable mobile home park fire protection standards" means (i) in the case of a home rule unit, the fire protection standards ordinance of the municipality or fire protection district that has jurisdictional responsibility for responding to a fire call in that park or (ii) if there is no ordinance or in the case of a non-home rule unit, the rules adopted by the Office of the State Fire Marshal for fire safety in mobile home parks. If, upon inspection, the municipal fire department or fire protection district finds that a park does not meet the applicable fire protection standards, the municipal fire department or fire protection district shall give within 5 working days of the inspection a written notice of violation to the licensee and to the Department of Public Health of any violation or required modification or repair. The licensee has 30 days after receipt of the written notice to correct the violation or make the required modification or repair. Not less than 30 days after the licensee's receipt of the notice, the municipal fire department or fire protection district shall reinspect the park and issue a written reinspection report to the licensee and to the Department of Public Health concerning the status of the licensee's compliance with the notice and whether any violation still exists. If the municipal fire department or fire protection district determines on reinspection that a licensee has made a good faith and substantial effort to comply with the notice but that compliance is not complete, the municipal fire department or fire protection district may grant the licensee an extension of time for compliance, as they deem fit, by a written notice of extension of time for compliance issued within 5 working days after the reinspection that identifies what remains to be corrected, modified, or repaired and a date by which compliance must be achieved. If an extension is granted, the municipal fire department or fire protection district shall make another inspection within 10 days after the date set for compliance and issue a final written report to the licensee and the Department of Public Health concerning the status of the licensee's compliance with the notice, written report, and written notice of extension of time for compliance and whether a violation still exists. If a licensee fails to cure the violation or comply with the requirements stated in the notice of violation, or if a written notice of extension of time for compliance is issued and the final written report states that a violation still exists, the municipal fire department or fire protection district shall notify the Department of Public Health of the licensee's failure to comply with the notice of violation and the written report and shall deliver to the Department for purposes of enforcement under this Section copies of all written notices and reports concerning the violation.
    Upon receipt of the written reports concerning the violation, the Department shall issue to the licensee a notice of intent to assess civil penalties in the amount of $500 per day, per violation for non-compliance with the written notice of violation issued by the municipal fire department or fire protection district and provide the licensee with the opportunity for an administrative hearing pursuant to the provisions of Section 22 of this Act.
    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, the enforcement of home rule ordinances and regulations shall be by the appropriate local authorities, including local public health departments, municipal attorneys, and State's Attorneys.
    A home rule unit may not regulate the legal rights, remedies, and obligations of a licensee under this Section in a manner less restrictive than the regulation by the State of fire safety in a mobile home park under this Section. This Section is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of powers and function exercised by the State.
    This Section does not apply to any mobile home park located within a home rule county if the home rule county actively regulates mobile home parks.

210 ILCS 115/9.16

    (210 ILCS 115/9.16)
    Sec. 9.16. Disclosure of the manufacture of methamphetamine in a mobile home. When a licensee or owner of a mobile home park has been notified in writing by law enforcement authorities that one of the mobile homes in the mobile home park has been used for the manufacture of methamphetamine as defined in Section 10 of the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, then the licensee or owner of the mobile home park shall inform a potential buyer of the mobile home that law enforcement authorities have notified the licensee or owner in writing that the mobile home has been used for the manufacture of methamphetamine.
    The obligation of disclosure shall be imposed on the licensee or owner of the mobile home park only if the licensee or owner receives a written application for residency in the mobile home park from the prospective buyer prior to the prospective buyer acquiring the home and such application specifically identifies the applicable home and that the prospective buyer may acquire the home. If the licensee or owner provides the required disclosure to the prospective buyer, then the seller of the mobile home shall not have any right to seek legal or equitable remedies against the licensee or owner on account of or in any way related to the disclosure, even if it is determined that the disclosure was not required to be made under this Section (for example, if the disclosure results in the prospective buyer not acquiring the mobile home, then the seller of the mobile home may not seek any redress or equitable remedies against the licensee or owner providing the disclosure in any way related to or resulting from the disclosure). If a licensee or owner violates this Section as determined by an impartial hearing examiner appointed by the Director of Public Health, then: (i) a prospective buyer shall not have any redress or cause of action against a licensee or owner for such failure; (ii) a violation shall not be subject to the terms of Section 19 of this Act; and (iii) the only liability a licensee or owner shall have for a violation of this Section shall be the payment of a fine in an amount determined by the examiner after the conclusion of a hearing and the examiner determining that the licensee or owner, as applicable, violated this Section, such fine not to exceed $2,000 for each violation.

    Sec. 22. Any person refused a permit to construct or alter a park or a license, or whose license is suspended or revoked, shall have the right to a hearing before the Department. A written notice of a request for such a hearing shall be served upon the Department within 20 days of such refusal of a permit to construct or alter or refusal of a license or suspension or revocation thereof. The Director shall give written notice of such decision, by registered mail, to the park operator or the applicant, as the case may be, within 5 days of such refusal, suspension or revocation.
    The hearing shall be conducted by the Director, or a duly qualified employee of the Department designated in writing by the Director as a Hearing Officer.
    The Director or Hearing Officer may compel by subpoena or subpoena duces tecum the attendance and testimony of witnesses and the production of books and papers, and administer oaths to witnesses. The hearing shall be conducted at such place as designated by the Department, except that hearings concerning the establishment, operation or licensing of a park in a county of 1,000,000 or more inhabitants shall be conducted in such county. The Director shall give written notice of the time and place of hearing, by registered mail, to the park operator or license applicant, as the case may be, at least 10 days prior to such hearing.
    The Director or Hearing Officer shall permit the applicant or licensee to appear in person and to be represented by counsel at the hearing at which time the applicant or licensee shall be afforded an opportunity to present all relevant matter in support of his application for license or renewal of license or in resisting the revocation thereof.
    In the event of the inability of any party, or the Department, to procure the attendance of witnesses to give testimony or produce books and papers, such party or the Department may take the deposition of witnesses in accordance with the law pertaining to the taking of depositions in civil cases in the circuit courts of this State. All testimony taken at a hearing shall be reduced to writing, and all such testimony and other evidence introduced at the hearing shall constitute a part of the record of the hearing.
    The Director shall make findings of fact in such hearing, and the Director shall render his or her decision within 30 days after the termination of the hearing, unless additional time is required by him or her for a proper disposition of the matter. When the hearing has been conducted by a Hearing Officer, the Director shall review the record before rendering a decision. It shall be the duty of the Director to forward a copy of his or her decision, by registered mail, to the park operator or applicant, as the case may be, within 5 days of rendering such decision.
    Technical errors in the proceeding before the Director or Hearing Officer or their failure to observe the technical rules of evidence shall not constitute grounds for the reversal of any administrative decision unless it appears to the court that such error or failure materially affects the rights of any party and results in substantial injustice to him.
    All subpoenas issued by the Director or Hearing Officer may be served as provided for in civil actions. The fees of witnesses for attendance and travel shall be the same as the fees for witnesses before the Circuit Court and shall be paid by the party to such proceeding at whose request the subpoena is issued. If such subpoena is issued at the request of the Department, the witness fee shall be paid as an administrative expense.
    In cases of refusal of a witness to attend or testify, or to produce books or papers, concerning any matter upon which he might be lawfully examined, the Circuit Court of the county wherein the hearing is held, upon application of any party to the proceeding, may compel obedience by proceeding for contempt as in cases of a like refusal to obey a similar order of the Court.
    The Department shall not be required to certify any record or file any answer or otherwise appear in any proceeding for judicial review unless the party filing the complaint deposits with the clerk of the court the sum of 95 cents per page representing costs of such certification.
