When the use of dredging equipment is authorized under section 6156.04 of the Revised Code, the applicant shall be charged with an amount equal to the actual cost of labor, depreciation, and fuel furnished by the county. The county auditor may accept cash payment or may assess such amount on the county tax duplicate to be collected from the applicant as other county taxes are collected. In the event an assessment is made on the county tax duplicate, the amount shall be allocated over a period of ten years, but the applicant may, at his option, pay the balance owing at any time within the ten-year period. Funds collected from an applicant shall be placed in the county general revenue fund. Funds collected for depreciation shall be placed in a special account in the county general revenue fund to be used for the purchase of new or replacement of dredging equipment.
