Each reporter shall receive the compensation that the court of common pleas making the appointment fixes. That compensation shall be in place of all per diem compensation in those courts. In case the appointment is for a term of less than one year, the court may allow a per diem compensation to be fixed by the court, plus actual and necessary expenses incurred, for each day the reporter is actually engaged in taking testimony or performing other duties under the orders of the court, which allowance shall be in full payment for all services so rendered.
The county auditor shall issue warrants on the county treasurer for the payment of the compensation under this section in equal monthly installments if the compensation is allowed annually, and in case of services per diem, for the amount of the bill approved by the court, from the general fund upon the presentation of a certified copy of the journal entry of appointment and compensation of the reporters.
