What is the Foreign Fire Fund?
The Illinois Foreign Fire Insurance Fund is distributed by the state of Illinois Muncipal League. The Municipal League collects insurance taxes from companies outside of the State of Illinois. Those funds are distributed to fire departments across the state to provide for the needs of the departments as the department sees fit to compensate for what is not provided by the municipality.
It is required by the state of Illinois' Open Meeting Act to post agendas and minutes on a website, if one is maintained.
