    Sec. 9-140. Loss or destruction of assessment books. When all or any part of the assessment rolls or collectors' books of any county, or other taxing district are lost or destroyed by any means whatever, a new assessment, or new books, as the case may require, shall be made under the direction of the county board. The board shall, in those cases, fix reasonable times and dates for performing the work of assessment, equalization, levy, extension and collection of taxes, and paying over the same, or making new books, as the circumstances of the case may require. All provisions of this Code apply to the dates fixed by the county board, in the same manner that they apply to the dates for similar purposes, as fixed by this Code. The presiding officer of the county board may select and appoint persons, with the advice and consent of the county board, when he or she finds it necessary, to carry out provisions of this section.
