The board of county commissioners may appropriate such funds as it deems sufficient for the inspection of apiaries in its county. It may appoint a deputy apiarist with the consent and concurrence of the director of agriculture, said deputy to serve during the pleasure of said board except as specified in this section. Such deputy shall be paid such salary as the county commissioners determine for each day, or for each half day of inspection work actually done, together with such expenses as are necessarily incurred in the doing of the inspection work. Before the board approves said salary and expenses for payment, such deputy shall submit the same to the director for his approval. Such deputy shall work under the direction of the director and shall be responsible to him for the enforcement of sections 909.01 to 909.18, inclusive, of the Revised Code. The director may terminate the appointment of any deputy upon submitting to the board a statement that such deputy has shown himself to be incompetent, inefficient, or untrustworthy in the discharge of his duties. Such deputy shall furnish to the director such reports as are required and upon blanks furnished by him. A duplicate of such reports shall be presented to the board each time that a statement of salary and expense is presented for payment.
