Section 9-9-16

Board of water management commissioners - Election of district treasurer.

The board of water management commissioners shall elect some competent person, corporation or partnership as district treasurer, whose duty it shall be to receive all moneys derived from tax collections, the sale of bonds or from any other source and to disburse the same in accordance with the provisions of this article. The secretary shall also be eligible for the office of treasurer. The said treasurer shall be required before entering upon the discharge of his duties to give bond in such manner as shall be fixed by the board of water management commissioners, payable to the water management district conditioned that he will well and truly account for and pay out as provided by law all moneys received by him from whatever source, which bond shall be signed by at least two sureties approved and accepted by said board of water management commissioners. Said treasurer shall keep all funds received by him from any source whatever deposited at all times in some banking institution to be designated by the board of water management commissioners; provided, that if it shall be deemed more expedient to the board of water management commissioners as to money derived from the sale of bonds issued, said board may by resolution select some suitable bank or banks or other depository as temporary treasurer or treasurers to hold and disburse said moneys on the orders of the board of water management commissioners as the work progresses until such fund is exhausted or transferred to the district treasurer by order of the said board of water management commissioners.
