(505 ILCS 100/10) (from Ch. 5, par. 960)
    Sec. 10. Whenever the owner or person in control of the land on which noxious weeds are present has neglected or failed to control or eradicate them as required in this Act and any notice is given pursuant to Section 9, the Control Authority having jurisdiction shall have proper control and eradication methods used on such land, and shall advise the owner, person in control, and record holder of any encumbrance of the cost incurred in connection with such operation. The cost of any such control or eradication shall be at the expense of the owner. If unpaid for 6 months, or longer, the amount of such expense shall become a lien upon the property. Nothing contained in this Section shall be construed to require satisfaction of the obligation imposed hereby in whole or in part from the sale of the property or to bar the application of any other additional remedy otherwise available. Amounts collected under this Section shall be deposited in the Noxious Weed Control Fund or other appropriate general fund of the Control Authority.
