68-561. Same; procedure upon adoption of act; tax levies; use of machinery. Whenever any township has petitioned or voted to turn over the maintenance, repair and construction of the township roads to the county, as hereinbefore provided, the township board of such township is hereby authorized and directed to pay over to the board of county commissioners of such county any and all unused road money or funds or surplus funds and all other moneys received by such township for road purposes and in the hands of such township board and any road machinery or equipment owned by such township, to be used by the board of county commissioners for road work on the township roads in the township. The township board shall each year certify to the board of county commissioners, as is now prescribed by law, the aggregate amount to be raised by taxation for township road purposes within such township for the year next ensuing, and the board of county commissioners shall determine the rate of levy, and levy such rates as are now provided by law. Such taxes and all other moneys received by such township board for road purposes shall be placed by the county treasurer in a separate fund to be used by the county commissioners only for road work and improvement on township roads within the township: Provided, That the county shall not be obligated to spend on the roads and highways of such townships more money than is credited to said separate fund.
No rental charge shall be made by the county for the use of any machinery used on township roads in any such township except such rental as shall be mutually agreed upon by the said township board and board of county commissioners.
