At the request of the superintendent or administrator of the county home, the board of county commissioners or operator shall set apart from the county home fund, a reserve fund not to exceed five thousand dollars at any time, which, upon the order of the board or operator shall be paid to the superintendent or administrator and expended as needed for emergency supplies and expenses. The superintendent or administrator shall keep an accurate account of the reserve fund, in a book to be provided at the expense of the county for that purpose, and all expenditures from it shall be audited by the board or operator. The county home fund shall be reimbursed by the superintendent or administrator, in full, for any items expended by the superintendent or administrator from the reserve fund, which items are not allowed by the board or operator. When, and as often as such amount is entirely disbursed, on the order of the board or operator, the county auditor shall pay to the superintendent or administrator the amount so appropriated.
