(65 ILCS 5/11-15.1-1)
(from Ch. 24, par. 11-15.1-1)
The corporate authorities of any municipality may enter
into an annexation agreement with one or more of the owners of record
of land in unincorporated territory. That land may be annexed to the
municipality in the manner provided in Article 7 at the time the land is or
becomes contiguous to the municipality. The agreement shall be valid and
binding for a period of not to exceed 20 years from the date of its execution.
Lack of contiguity to the municipality of property that is the subject of
an annexation agreement does not affect the validity of the agreement
whether approved by the corporate authorities before or after the effective
date of this amendatory Act of 1990.
This amendatory Act of 1990 is declarative of existing law and does not
change the substantive operation of this Section.
