§ 29. Subpoenas--Service--Fees--Deposit--Production of books and papers--Compelling attendance
or production--Deposition. All subpoenas issued under the terms of this Act may be served by any person of
full age. The fees of witnesses for attendance and travel shall be the same as fees of witnesses
before the circuit courts of this State. Whenever a subpoena is issued at the instance of a party to any proceeding before
the Redevelopment Commission, that party may be required to bear the cost of service
thereof and to pay the fee of the witness, and in such case the Redevelopment Commission
shall have power, in its discretion, to require a deposit to cover the cost of the
service and the payment of the legal witness fee and mileage to the witness when served
with subpoena. A subpoena issued as provided in this Act shall be served in the same manner as
a subpoena issued out of a court.
Any circuit court of this State, upon application of the Redevelopment Commission,
may, in its discretion, compel the attendance of witnesses, the production of books,
papers, accounts and documents, and the giving of testimony before the Redevelopment
Commission, by an attachment for contempt or otherwise, in the same manner as production
of evidence may be compelled before the court.
The Redevelopment Commission or any party may in any such investigation or hearing
cause the deposition of witnesses residing within or without the State to be taken
in the manner prescribed by law for like depositions in civil actions in the circuit
courts of this State and to that end may compel the attendance of witnesses and the
production of papers, books, accounts and documents.
The Redevelopment Commission may require the production within this State at such
time and place as it may designate of any books, accounts, papers or documents kept
by any Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation in any office or place without this
State, or at its option, verified copies in lieu thereof, so that an examination thereof
may be made by the Redevelopment Commission or under its direction.
