A board of county commissioners may authorize, by resolution, a payroll deduction benefit program to implement the qualified transportation fringe benefit provided for in section 132(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, 26 U.S.C. 132(f) , as amended, for county employees, but only insofar as it applies to parking and transit passes. If the program includes a parking benefit for parking at a facility that is not owned by the county, the county shall require a third-party administrator to administer the program for the county, unless, on or before the effective date of this section, the county already is providing such a parking benefit for which it is acting as the administrator.
The resolution shall provide a process whereby any county officer or employee may participate in or withdraw from the program upon the filing of a written application. Upon appropriate written authorization, the county auditor shall make the appropriate payroll deductions and issue warrants as required by the program.
