Section 6137.07 | Drainage equipment.


(A) As used in this section, "drainage equipment" means machinery, tools, conveyances, or other equipment for the repair and maintenance of drainage improvements a board of county commissioners considers necessary.

(B) The board of county commissioners may do both of the following:

(1) Purchase drainage equipment;

(2) Provide a suitable place to house and store the drainage equipment.

The county engineer shall be responsible for the care and custody of the drainage equipment and shall plainly and conspicuously mark it as the property of the county.

(C) The county engineer shall annually, on the second Monday of January, make an inventory of the drainage equipment, indicating each article and stating its estimated value, and deliver the inventory to the board of county commissioners. The board shall keep the inventory on file. The county engineer may file written recommendations with the board for drainage equipment that should be purchased for use in the county drainage maintenance program during the ensuing year and its estimated cost.

(D) All expenditures authorized by this section shall be paid out of the drainage maintenance fund or funds. If the drainage maintenance fund at any time is inadequate for such purchase or other expenditure, the board of county commissioners is authorized to make the payment from the county general fund, which sum so paid from the general fund shall be a charge against the drainage maintenance fund or funds to be repaid to the general fund as soon as adequate funds are available in the drainage maintenance fund or funds.
