(35 ILCS 200/9-140)
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.
