120.124 Operating budget.

Sec. 24.

(1) The authority shall submit in writing a detailed estimate of the budget required for the business and conduct of an authority's affairs, initially, for a 2-year period, and annually thereafter to the governing bodies of its constituent units, the department of commerce, and the department of state highways and transportation for approval. The state shall provide 50% of the operating budget of the authority, to be included in the department of state highways and transportation budget which shall be subject to legislative approval. Fifty percent of the operating budget of an authority in which not more than 1 county and not more than 1 city participate shall be funded equally by the participating county and city.

(2) A city or county creating or participating in an authority may appropriate for the use of the authority, and include in its levy for general fund purposes, an amount considered proper. However, the total amount permitted by law to be levied by a city or county for general fund purposes shall not be considered increased by this section.

(3) As used in this section, “operating budget” means solely operation and maintenance expenses of an authority not included in the cost of a specific project, and interest on notes, but excludes amounts for debt service on bonds and amounts for acquisition, construction, enlargement, improvement, or extension of port facilities.
