5155.26 Exempting property from possession proceedings.

A board of county commissioners shall not seek to take charge of property in the manner prescribed by section 5155.23 of the Revised Code if the guardian, spouse, heirs, or persons entitled to the residuary interest in such property give bond to the board or officers to their satisfaction, and if, at such times as the board requires, such persons pay into the hands of the superintendent or administrator of the county home, an amount sufficient to support the person while he remains a resident of the county home. The probate court may, at the time of hearing a petition for sale, in lieu of an order for sale, order the guardian, spouse, heirs, or persons entitled to a residuary interest in the property of such person, to make payments to the superintendent or administrator of the county home for the maintenance of such person, and failure to do so shall make any person so ordered punishable by the court as for contempt.
