Sale of land affected by federal emergency conservation
work on privately owned land.
(a) The Department has
the power and authority for and on behalf of the State to make contractual
agreements with the federal government providing that if, as a result of
emergency conservation work done by the federal government on State,
municipally owned land in Illinois under the provisions of a federal act
entitled "An Act for the relief of unemployment through the performance of
useful public work, and for other purposes", enacted by the 73rd
the State derives a direct profit from the sale of that land or
products, then the proceeds will be divided equally between the
Illinois and the federal government until the State shall have paid for
the work done at the rate of $1.00 per man per day for the time spent on
the work or projects, subject to a maximum of $3.00 per acre.
The Department's agreements with the U.S. Government may include
general indemnification provisions as required by federal statutes for
nonfederal sponsorship of a federally authorized project.
(b) The Department may also assume responsibility for the maintenance of
work done on privately owned land either by the owners of the land or
otherwise and may by contract with the owners reserve the right to remove
any structures or other things of removable value resulting from the work,
including products of trees planted, the removal to be without
compensation to the landowner.
