The amount set aside for such fund shall be charged by the auditor 39 against the sheriff and the board of county commissioners may require of the 2 1 sheriff, a bond, in addition to his official bond, in such sum as the board 2 may determine, to secure the repayment of such sum or sums withdrawn.

For those items allowed it shall be the duty of the board 16 of county commissioners to order a warrant drawn, payable to the county trea- 17 surer for the total amount of the items allowed, which warrant shall be deliv- 18 ered to the county auditor. If any item of said claim is disallowed, the sher- 19 iff shall deposit with the county auditor an amount equal to the amount disal- 20 lowed, together with any unexpended portion of the amounts withdrawn, which 21 amounts, together with the warrant drawn in favor of the county treasurer for 22 the amount of items allowed, shall be credited by the county auditor to the 23 sheriff and shall be deposited by the auditor in the county treasury and 24 placed to the credit of the fund.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 12684 The sheriff s revolving fund allows the sheriff to obtain money from the county clerk for travel and hotel expenses in a more streamlined fashion than through the normal county claims process. The money ultimately comes from the sheriff s budget and must be replenished from the sheriff s budget which is set by the county commissioners. The purpose of this bill is to expand the amount of money held in the sheriff s revolving fund from $5,000 to $10,000 and to allow the sheriff to use the revolving fund for training purposes and for other duties such as transportation of prisoners. Because the revolving fund is replenished from the sheriff s budget, it will not affect local property taxes in any way. FISCAL IMPACT This bill will have no fiscal impact on the general fund.
