(205 ILCS 405/15.2) (from Ch. 17, par. 4831)
    Sec. 15.2. No community currency exchange shall determine its affairs and close up its business unless it shall first deposit with the Secretary an amount of money equal to the whole of its debts, liabilities and lawful demands against it including the costs and expenses of this proceeding, and shall surrender to the Secretary its community currency exchange license, and shall file with the Secretary a statement of termination signed by the licensee of such community currency exchange, containing a pronouncement of intent to close up its business and liquidate its liabilities, and also containing a sworn list itemizing in full all such debts, liabilities and lawful demands against it. Corporate licensees shall attach to, and make a part of such statement of termination, a copy of a resolution providing for the determination and closing up of the licensee's affairs, certified by the secretary of such licensee and duly adopted at a shareholders' meeting by the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at such meeting. Upon the filing with the Secretary of a statement of termination the Secretary shall cause notice thereof to be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in a public newspaper of general circulation published in the city or village where such community currency exchange is located, and if no newspaper shall be there published, then in a public newspaper of general circulation nearest to said city or village; and such publication shall give notice that the debts, liabilities and lawful demands against such community currency exchange will be redeemed by the Secretary on demand in writing made by the owner thereof, at any time within one year from the date of first publication. After the expiration of such one-year period, the Secretary shall return to the person or persons designated in the statement of termination to receive such repayment and in the proportion therein specified, any balance of money then remaining in his possession, if any there be, after first deducting therefrom all unpaid costs and expenses incurred in connection with this proceeding. The Secretary shall receive for his services, exclusive of costs and expenses, two per cent of any amount up to $5,000.00, and one per cent of any amount in excess of $5,000.00, deposited with him hereunder by any one community currency exchange. Nothing contained herein shall affect or impair the liability of any bonding or insurance company on any bond or insurance policy issued under this Act relating to such community currency exchange.
