§ 10-5-105. Sale of certain property acquired by condemnation.
(a) This Section applies only to property that (i) has been acquired after the effective date of this Act by condemnation or threat of condemnation, (ii) was acquired for public ownership and control by the condemning authority or another public entity, and (iii) has been under the ownership and control of the condemning authority or that other public entity for a total of less than 5 years.
As used in this Section, “threat of condemnation” means that the condemning authority has made an offer to purchase property and has the authority to exercise the power of eminent domain with respect to that property.
(b) Any governmental entity seeking to dispose of property to which this Section applies must dispose of that property in accordance with this Section, unless disposition of that property is otherwise specifically authorized or prohibited by law enacted by the General Assembly before, on, or after the effective date of this Act.
(c) The sale or public auction by the State of property to which this Section applies must be conducted in the manner provided in the State Property Control Act for the disposition of surplus property.
(d) The sale or public auction by a municipality of property to which this Section applies must be conducted in accordance with Section 11-76-4.1 or 11-76-4.2 of the Illinois Municipal Code.
(e) The sale or public auction by any other unit of local government or school district of property to which this Section applies must be conducted in accordance with this subsection (e). The corporate authorities of the 1 unit of local government or school district, by resolution, may authorize the sale or public auction of the property as surplus public real estate. The value of the real estate shall be determined by a written MAI-certified appraisal or by a written certified appraisal of a State-certified or State-licensed real estate appraiser. The appraisal shall be available for public inspection. The resolution may direct the sale to be conducted by the staff of the unit of local government or school district; by listing with local licensed real estate agencies, in which case the terms of the agent's compensation shall be included in the resolution; or by public auction. The resolution shall be published at the first opportunity following its passage in a newspaper or newspapers published in the county or counties in which the unit of local government or school district is located. The resolution shall also contain pertinent information concerning the size, use, and zoning of the real estate and the terms of sale. The corporate authorities of the unit of local government or school district may accept any contract proposal determined by them to be in the best interest of the unit of local government or school district by a vote of two-thirds of the members of the corporate authority of the unit of local government or school district then holding office, but in no event at a price less than 80% of the appraised value.
(f) This Section does not apply to the acquisition or damaging of property under the O'Hare Modernization Act.
