(70 ILCS 605/8-10) (from Ch. 42, par. 8-10)
    Sec. 8-10. Detachment-Hearing-Order-Costs-Appeals.
    At the hearing, the court shall determine whether the allegations of the petition are true. Any owner of land within the district and the commissioners may appear and be heard with reference thereto without filing formal pleadings. If, at the hearing, the court finds that the land proposed to be detached has been assessed for benefits and that the work for which such assessment was levied has not been abandoned, then the land shall be presumed to have been benefited. If the court finds for the petitioners, it shall order the land detached. The order shall include a description of the land so detached. The costs of the proceedings may be taxed against the petitioners, the detached land or the objectors, as justice may require, without regard to the outcome of the proceeding. The order shall be final and separate or joint appeals may be taken by any person interested, as in other civil cases.
