§ 15. Whenever the board of trustees of any sanitary district shall pass an ordinance
for the making of any improvement which such district is authorized to make, the making
of which will require that private property should be taken or damaged, such district
may cause compensation therefor to be ascertained, and may condemn and acquire possession
thereof in the same manner as nearly as may be as is provided for the exercise of
the right of eminent domain under the Eminent Domain Act, as amended, except that
(i) proceedings to ascertain the compensation to be paid for taking or damaging private
property shall in all cases be instituted in the county where the property sought
to be taken or damaged is situated, and (ii) all damages to property, whether determined
by agreement or by final judgment of court, shall be paid prior to the payment of
any other debt or obligation.
