Bill Title: Amends the Illinois Drainage Code. Provides that if one or more municipalities account for at least 50% of a drainage district's territory, the drainage district may be dissolved if each municipality that has territory within the drainage district and the county in which the drainage district lies adopt a resolution or ordinance dissolving the district. Provides that the resolution or ordinance must state: that there are no outstanding debts of the district that have been filed with the county clerk; that federal or State permits or grants will not be impaired by dissolution of the district; and the date of dissolution of the district. Provides for transfer of powers and real property of the former drainage district to the municipalities and county. Provides that if the former district had levied a tax that is still effective on the date of dissolution, then the county in which the drainage district lies has the authority to continue to collect, receive, and expend the proceeds of the tax within the boundaries of the former drainage district and the proceeds shall be expended or disposed of by the county in the same manner as the proceeds may have been expended or disposed by the former drainage district. Provides that the county board shall, by ordinance or resolution, reduce or eliminate the tax levy under specified conditions. Provides that the county shall notify the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency of the dissolution of the district no later than 60 days after the date of dissolution of the district.
