State Park Revolving Fund.

In addition to the State Park Fund established by Section 9-2-106, there is also hereby created and established a fund to be known as the State Park Revolving Fund, which fund shall be constituted from all moneys received for admissions charged or rentals, sales of goods or services and such other miscellaneous charges collected by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in the operation of its state parks, monuments, historical sites and other facilities. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources, with the approval of the state Department of Finance, is authorized and empowered to provide for and open an account or accounts at any state or federal bank whose deposits are insured within the State of Alabama for the purpose of providing a depository or depositories for said revolving fund. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources is further authorized and empowered to draw on or make expenditures from said revolving fund for the purchase of goods for resale, equipment purchases, payment of utilities, salaries of employees and any other normal operating costs of park facilities, including normal maintenance costs. Said revolving fund shall be subject to examination and audit as other funds of the state are examined and audited. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources, with the approval of the state Department of Finance and the Chief Examiner of Public Accounts, shall by regulation provide the procedure for making deposits and withdrawals from said revolving fund together with such other accounting procedures as may be needed, including the setting of bonds for persons empowered to handle said fund. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources, with the approval of the Governor, may at the close of any state fiscal year transfer to the State Parks Fund from said revolving fund such moneys as may be deemed excess to the purpose or purposes of the revolving fund.
