6115.45 Sanitary district funds.

The moneys of every sanitary district shall consist of three separate funds:

(A) The "preliminary fund" consisting of the proceeds of the ad valorem tax authorized by section 6115.46 of the Revised Code, and such advancements as are made from the general county funds as provided in section 6115.46 of the Revised Code;

(B) The "bond fund" consisting of the proceeds of levies made against the special assessments of benefits equalized and confirmed under this chapter, and, as to sanitary districts organized for the purpose of providing a water supply, the proceeds of the sale of water pursuant to section 6115.19 of the Revised Code and the proceeds of bonds issued under this chapter;

(C) The "maintenance fund" consisting of a special assessment to be levied annually for the purpose of upkeep, administration, and current expenses as provided in section 6115.53 of the Revised Code, except that the maintenance fund for improved water supply for domestic, municipal, and public use shall be derived from the sale of water as provided in such section.

The cost of preparing the official plan, the appraisal, except as paid out of the preliminary fund, the entire cost of construction and superintendence, including all charges incidental thereto, the financing costs as defined in section 133.01 of the Revised Code, and the cost of administration during the period of construction shall be paid out of the bond fund. No vouchers shall be drawn against the preliminary fund, except for advances from the general county funds, or against the maintenance fund provided for purposes other than improved water supply for domestic, municipal, and public use, until a tax-levying resolution properly passed by the board of directors of the sanitary district, and duly entered upon its records. In case the purposes of the district include both improved sanitation and improved water supply, the funds for these purposes shall be kept separate.
