(70 ILCS 605/4-33) (from Ch. 42, par. 4-33)
    Sec. 4-33. Report on completion of work. Commissioners may (and if money has been or will be borrowed to provide funds for the performance of the work, then the commissioners shall), within 60 days after the completion of any specific work ordered constructed by the court, file with the court a report of the fact that the work has been completed and that the commissioners propose to accept the same. The report shall contain a statement of the actual construction costs, including the cost of any extra work, and all other costs and expenses incident thereto, the date the work was commenced and the date of completion. Upon the filing of the report the same shall be presented to the court and by the court set for hearing. The clerk of the court shall give notice of the hearing by publication for the time and in the manner provided by Section 4-22. Notice by mailing is not required. At the hearing, any owner of land in the district may file objections in writing to the acceptance of such work, stating specifically the reasons therefor, and the court shall hear any and all objections that have been filed and evidence in opposition to the report or in support thereof and may continue the hearing from time to time. Upon the conclusion of the hearing, the court, if it finds that the plans and specifications have been substantially complied with, shall approve the report and authorize the acceptance of the work, but if it finds that there has not been such substantial compliance, then it shall disapprove the report and enter such order as may be appropriate.
    Failure to complete any work for which an assessment was levied or to perform that work in substantial compliance with the approved plans and specifications cannot be interposed as a defense to the collector's application for judgment for delinquent assessments, but this restriction shall not affect the right of a landowner whose land has been or will be damaged by such failure to obtain relief by mandamus or by other appropriate action.
