    Sec. 30-165. Fire protection; special taxing district.

    (a) The electors may authorize the township board to contract with one or more municipalities in the township or with the county within which the township is located to furnish fire protection in the unincorporated area of the township.

    (b) With the approval of a majority of the voters in the unincorporated area of a township, the township board may declare the unincorporated area of the township a special fire district for tax purposes. Proof of that declaration authorizes the county clerk to extend a tax upon the special fire district in the amount specified in the annual township tax levy, but not more than a rate of 0.40% of the value of taxable property as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue.

    (c) Any territory within a special fire district that is annexed to a municipality that provides fire protection services within its corporate limits shall be automatically disconnected from the township fire protection taxing district.
