Illinois mandates school districts to hold elections issuing bonding for new construction and capital improvements, exceeding the property tax cap, or create a working cash fund. Since 2006, Illinois has had referendums over the property tax cap which is governed under the The Illinois Property Tax Cap Act of 2006 which requires voter approval if a school district wants to exceed their property tax cap for up to four years. The other type of referendum is a Chapter 20 referendum. Under Chapter 20, a school district must have voter approval if the voters petition a school district to create a working cash fund to pay liabilities. Only school districts that serve a city, town, or village less than 500,000 in population can hold a Chapter 20 referendum.

Citizens fight absorption of district

In Kane County, Illinois citizens collected over 144 signatures to fight the absorption of Wasco Sanitary District into Campton Hills in October 2007. A lawsuit has also been filed claiming that 95 acres of the district were unincorporated which leaves the district outside of Campton Hills.[1] If the lawsuit succeeds then citizens will stop the petition.
