    (765 ILCS 830/1) (from Ch. 21, par. 2)

    Sec. 1. Whenever any cemetery is within the limits of any town, the corporate authorities thereof may, if, in their opinion, any good cause exists why such cemetery should be removed, cause the remains of all persons interred therein to be removed to some other suitable place. Such corporate authorities shall first obtain the assent of the trustees or other persons having the control or ownership of the cemetery, or a majority thereof. When such cemetery is owned by one or more private parties, or private corporation or chartered society, the corporate authorities of such town may require the removal of such cemetery to be done at the expense of such private parties, or private corporations or chartered society, if such removal is based upon their application.
