For the purposes of lessening or preventing the discharge
of air contaminants, the corporate authorities of a city, village or
incorporated town may prescribe by ordinance for the regulation of (1) the
design and installation of accessory or appurtenant parts and equipment of
buildings and structures and uses of land connected with the emission of
air contaminants, (2) the operation or use of equipment and appliances
emitting air contaminants, (3) the conduct or carrying on of uses of land
which causes the emission into the atmosphere of air contaminants, and (4)
the abatement of an operation, activity or use causing air contamination.
For the purposes of this Section, "air contaminant" means and includes but
is not limited to the following: dust, soot, mist, smoke, fumes, fly ash,
vapor, corrosive gas or other discharge and any other air borne material or
substance that is offensive, nauseous, irritating or noxious to humans or
other animal life.
The corporate authorities of any city, village or incorporated town may
make contracts providing for a program of joint air contamination control
within the jurisdiction of the contracting parties and providing terms and
conditions that are not in conflict with this Section with the corporate
authorities of any one or more of the following:
(a) any other city, village or incorporated town;
(b) one or more counties; or
(c) adjoining areas of another State.
The corporate authorities of each city, village or incorporated town
desiring to so contract shall appoint a committee of no more than 3 of its
own members to negotiate the terms and conditions of the proposed contract
which shall be subject to approval by those corporate authorities. The
rules and regulations for air contamination control established pursuant to
the terms and conditions of such approved contract shall be adopted by
ordinance by each contracting city, village or incorporated town.
Whenever the corporate authorities of any city, village or incorporated
town enter a contract that is authorized by this Section they shall include
in the annual appropriation ordinance for each fiscal year, an
appropriation of a sum of money sufficient to pay the amount which, by the
terms of the contract, is to become due and payable from that city, village
or incorporated town during the current fiscal year.
