Chapter 117-5 Counties
Rescinded eff 1-23-06
The county commissioners, or in counties that have adopted a charter pursuant to article X of the Ohio Constitution and Chapter 302. of the Revised Code the county council, shall adopt appropriation measures. These measures establish the legal level of control.
The legal level of control is the level (e.g., fund, program or function, department, object level) at which spending in excess of budgeted amounts would be a violation of law. This is established by the level at which the legislative body appropriates, and must meet or exceed the level prescribed by section 5705.38 of the Revised Code.
