6105.08 Budget.

At the meeting called under section 6105.06 of the Revised Code, the president or duly authorized representative of the board of county commissioners of each watershed county shall, by a majority vote of such presidents or representatives, adopt an expenditure budget for the watershed district for the remainder of the current calendar year and for the next succeeding calendar year.

The total amount of each of such budgets shall be apportioned among the several watershed counties in the ratio that the taxable value of the real and personal property within such county and within the territorial boundaries of the district bears to the taxable value of all real and personal property within the territorial boundaries of the district.

The amount of the budget for the current calendar year apportioned to each county shall be certified to the board of county commissioners of such county, in writing, by the chairman of the meeting where the apportionment was made.

Upon the receipt of the certification under the next preceding paragraph of this section such board of county commissioners shall adopt an appropriation resolution appropriating the amount so certified, payable out of any moneys to the credit of the general fund of the county not otherwise appropriated, to the order of the watershed district. Upon the passage of such resolution the county auditor shall draw his warrant on the county treasurer to the order of the watershed district in the amount so appropriated and shall, upon the appointment of a secretary-treasurer for the district under section 6105.09 of the Revised Code, deliver such warrant to such secretary-treasurer.

The amount of the budget for the next succeeding calendar year apportioned to each county shall be certified to the board of county commissioners of such county, in writing, by the chairman of the meeting where the apportionment was made. Such board of county commissioners shall include such amount in the appropriation resolution for the next succeeding calendar year and upon the passage of such resolution the county auditor shall draw his warrant on the treasurer of the county to the order of the watershed district for the amount so appropriated and shall deliver such warrant to the secretary-treasurer of the district.
