Section 45-2-161Established; disposition of funds.
(a) This section shall apply only in Baldwin County. The governing body of Baldwin County may appropriate out of any moneys in the county treasury not otherwise appropriated, and expend not more than the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) per fiscal year for any purposes, not otherwise provided for by law, that in their judgement are worthy and for the best interest of the county. The fund shall be known as the Commission Discretionary Fund. Provided, however, the expenditure provided shall first be authorized by the governing body of the county in a resolution spread upon its minutes and for promoting the economic well-being of the citizens of Baldwin County.
(b) Under the provisions of subsection (a), not more than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) shall be appropriated and expended in any fiscal year. Any sum or sums remaining unexpended in the fund at the end of the fiscal year, only so much shall be appropriated for the next succeeding fiscal year as will together with the sum so remaining unexpended bring the Commission Discretionary Fund up to the total sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000).
