The Incorporation Review Board is responsible for ensuring that proposed new cities and villages comply with certain statutory standards, such as whether the new community has the financial means to operate as an incorporated municipality. Based on its statutory review, the Board may decide to grant an incorporation petition, or deny it, or recommend that the petition be re-submitted with altered boundaries because a different boundary configuration may comply with the statutory standards.
The Board is also responsible for prescribing and collecting an incorporation review fee. The fee is currently $25,000.
