(65 ILCS 5/11-29.1-11) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-29.1-11)
    Sec. 11-29.1-11. Upon request of the board of directors, the attorney for the municipality in which a person who is liable for payment of maintenance charges resides shall file suit to collect the amount due. The court may order the payment of sums due for maintenance for such period or periods as the circumstances require. Such order may be entered against any or all such defendants and may be based upon the proportionate ability of each defendant to contribute to the payment of sums due. Orders for the payment of money may be enforced by attachment as for contempt against the persons of the defendants, and in addition as other judgments for the payment of money, and costs may be adjudged against the defendants and apportioned among them, but if the complaint is dismissed the costs shall be borne by the municipality.
    The provisions of the Civil Practice Law, and all amendments thereto, shall apply to and govern all actions instituted under the provisions of this Division 29.1.
