Any corporation organized for the purpose of providing a home for deaf and dumb persons may enter into a contract with the board of county commissioners of any county, or with the proper officers of any municipal infirmary, for the care and maintenance in such home of any deaf and dumb person who is an inmate of the county home or of such municipal infirmary, or who is entitled to admission thereto. In every such case the county home or municipal infirmary, during the period the person remains in such home for deaf and dumb persons, shall pay to such corporation, annually, a sum equal to the per capita cost of maintaining inmates in the county home or municipal infirmary.
When any deaf and dumb person is maintained in a county home or municipal infirmary, and in the judgment of the county department of job and family services should be removed to a home incorporated to provide a home for deaf and dumb persons, such department may order the removal of the person from the county home or municipal infirmary to such home. The transportation of the person to such home and the person's maintenance shall be paid for by the board of county commissioners or the proper officers of the municipal infirmary.
