Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Township Code. Provides that in townships of less than 200,000, a township board may file suit with respect to a nuisance occurring within the unincorporated area of the township if a township requests that the county board of the county in which the township is located commence specified proceedings and the county board does not commence proceedings to demolish, repair, or enclose the nuisance within 60 days after receiving the request. Sets forth the types of relief a township may seek. Provides that the defendants shall be the owner or owners of the property, and that any legal fees or costs incurred by the township may be assessed by the court against any or all of the defendants. Effective immediately.
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Provides that if a township within a county makes a formal request that the county board commence specified proceedings, then, at the next regular county board meeting occurring at least 10 days after the formal request is made to the county board, the county board shall either commence the requested proceedings or decline to do so (either formally or by failing to commence the proceedings within 60 days after the request) and shall notify the township board making the request of the county board's decision. Effective immediately.
