(70 ILCS 1205/13-8) (from Ch. 105, par. 13-8)
    Sec. 13-8. In addition to the method of dissolution provided in other sections of this Article, any park district situated wholly within the corporate limits of a city, village or incorporated town (hereinafter called a "municipality") may be dissolved and discontinued with the consent of a majority of the legal voters of both the park district and the municipality concerned. The vote of the people of the park district and of the municipality may be had upon like petition, proceedings, and referendum as is provided in Section 13-1 of this Code.
    If a majority of the legal voters of the municipality concerned vote to concur in the dissolution of the park district, then all members of the board of the district, whether their terms have expired or not, shall cease to have any power or authority, and all parks and all other property owned or controlled by the park district shall vest in and be controlled by the municipality. For the purpose of closing up the business of the park district, the corporate authorities of the municipality shall constitute the acting board for such district and shall act without compensation. They shall proceed to close up the business affairs of such park district and shall have all the powers of the former board of such district, before dissolution, that are necessary therefor, and shall have power to levy taxes for the purpose of paying outstanding debts, obligations or liabilities, and the necessary expenses of closing up the business of the park district.
    If, subsequent to the dissolution of a park district under this Section a new park district coterminous with the municipality is organized as the result of a petition filed within one year after such dissolution, all the parks and other property that vested in the municipality as a result of such dissolution shall thereupon vest in the newly organized park district, and the newly organized park district shall succeed to all the outstanding rights and obligations of the dissolved district, and the power and authority of the corporate authorities of the municipality with respect to the affairs of the dissolved district shall terminate.
