(70 ILCS 1005/7.3) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 80.3)
    Sec. 7.3. Ordinance directing sale-Publication-Bids-Deed of Conveyance.
    An ordinance directing a sale of real estate shall specify the location of the real estate, the use thereof, and such conditions with respect to further use of the real estate as the board of trustees may deem necessary and desirable to the public interest. Before the board of trustees makes a sale, by virtue of such an ordinance, notice of the proposal to sell shall be published once each week for three successive weeks in a daily or weekly paper published in any county in which the mosquito abatement district is located. The first publication shall be not less than 30 days before the day provided in the notice for the opening of bids for the real estate. The notice shall contain an accurate description of the property, state the purpose for which it is used, the consideration which is acceptable for the sale, and the date of the regular or special meeting the bids will be considered and opened, and shall advertise for bids therefor. The board of trustees may accept the highest responsible bid by a vote of three-fourths of the members of the board of trustees then holding office, or by such majority vote of those holding office, they may reject any and all bids. If consideration other than money is offered for the sale of such real estate, the monetary value of that consideration must be determined by an appropriate, independent appraiser, and the appraisal must accompany the bid. Before accepting a bid of consideration other than money, the board of trustees must obtain a second, independent appraisal of such consideration in order to verify the appraisal which accompanied the bid.
    If a bid is accepted by the board of trustees and the ordinance has been adopted and the consideration paid or secured, the chairman of the board of trustees shall convey the real estate and transfer it by proper deed of conveyance, stating therein the consideration therefor.
