Powers of board of managers.
The board of managers shall
control and manage the cemeteries jointly acquired by the townships or road
districts. The board of managers may receive in trust from the proprietors or
owners of any lot in the cemeteries, or any person, corporation, association,
or society interested in the maintenance of those cemeteries, any gift or
legacy of money or real, personal, or mixed property that is donated or
bequeathed to the board of managers for the use and maintenance of the lot or
cemeteries. The board of managers may convert the property into money, may
invest the money in securities in which trust funds may be invested under the Illinois Trust Code, and may apply the income perpetually for the care of
the lot or the care and maintenance of the cemeteries as specified in the gift
or legacy or as provided by the board of managers if the gift or legacy does
not specify the manner in which the income is to be expended.
