(70 ILCS 605/8-12)
(from Ch. 42, par. 8-12)
Detaching lands from one district and annexing to another district.
When any land lies within a district and such land is not connected to a
district drain and is not and cannot presently be benefited or protected by
the work of that district, but such land is or can be benefited by the work
of another district, the landowners and the commissioners of the 2
districts may enter into an agreement to detach the land from the former
district and to annex the land to the latter district. Such agreement shall
be in writing and shall become effective only upon the approval of the
circuit court of the county or counties in which the districts were
organized. Such approval may be granted upon petition of the landowner or
the commissioners, and the petition may be heard without notice or upon
such notice as the court may direct.
