(70 ILCS 1005/9) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 82)
    Sec. 9. Any mosquito abatement district organized under the provisions of this Act may levy and collect a general tax on the property situated in such district, but the aggregate amount of taxes levied for any one year shall not exceed the rate of .025%, or the limitation in effect on July 1, 1967, whichever is greater, of value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue. The board of trustees shall determine and certify the amount to be levied and shall return the same to the county clerk. The county clerk in reducing the tax levies under Section 2 of "An Act concerning the levy and extension of taxes", approved May 9, 1901, as amended, shall not include the tax authorized by this Act in the limitation of one per cent of the assessed valuation upon which taxes are required to be extended. The foregoing limitations upon tax rates may be increased or decreased under the referendum provisions of the General Revenue Law of Illinois.
    In case the district is located in more than one county the board of trustees shall determine and certify the amount to be levied upon the taxable property lying in each county and return the same to the respective county clerks of the counties in which the amount is to be levied. In order to determine the amount to be levied upon the taxable property of that part of the district lying in each county the board shall ascertain from the county clerk of the respective counties in which the district lies, the last ascertained equalized value of the taxable property of such district lying in their respective counties, then shall ascertain the rate per cent required and shall, accordingly, apportion the whole amount to be raised between the several parts of the district so lying in the different counties. The tax provided for in this Section shall be levied at the same time and in the same manner as nearly as practicable as taxes are now levied for city and village purposes under the laws of this State.
    All such general taxes when collected shall be paid over to the treasurer of the board of trustees, who is authorized to receive and receipt for the same.
