(70 ILCS 605/10-7.1) (from Ch. 42, par. 10-7.1)
    Sec. 10-7.1. Dissolution - Petition of Commissioners.) In addition to the method of dissolution provided in Section 10-5, the commissioners of a district may petition to dissolve the district. Such petition must show: (a) the reasons for dissolving the district; (b) that there are no debts of the district outstanding or that there are sufficient funds on hand or available to satisfy such debts; (c) that no contract will be impaired by the dissolution of the district; (d) that the district is not obligated to maintain any bridges and (e) that the district will pay any court costs incurred in connection with the petition. The petition shall be signed by a majority of the commissioners and be verified by at least one commissioner.
    Time for hearing of the petition shall be fixed and notice thereof given as provided by Section 10-6.
    At the hearing the court shall determine whether there is good reason for dissolving the district and whether the allegations of the petition are true. If the court finds for the petitioners it shall order the district dissolved but if the court finds against the petitioners the petition shall be dismissed. In either event, the costs shall be taxed against the district. The order shall be final. Separate or joint appeals may be taken by any of the parties affected thereby or by the commissioners of the district, as in other civil cases.
