130.11 Bond trustees.
(1) Unless otherwise provided by law, when the county commissioners shall have issued bonds, as aforesaid, they shall appoint by resolution of their board, to be recorded in the minutes, a financial committee of three persons, who shall be resident freeholders of the county, to be styled “trustees of county bonds,” who shall each give bond running to the chair of the board of county commissioners and the chair’s successors in office, with sufficient securities, in such sums as may be required by the county commissioners, conditioned that the said trustee shall faithfully discharge the trust confided to him or her, and shall pay over and duly account for all such sums of money as may come into his or her hands by virtue of such trust, which said bonds shall be approved as to the form and the sufficiency of sureties by the board of county commissioners; and the county commissioners may, from time to time, as circumstances may require, demand additional security from any such trustees; or
(2) The commissioners may in like manner appoint a responsible trust company, organized and qualified to do business, under the laws of the state, with its principal place of business in such county, which shall be styled, “trustee for county bonds,” and which shall give bond running to the chair of the board of county commissioners and the chair’s successors in office, with sufficient securities in such sum as may be required by the county commissioners, conditioned that the said trustee shall faithfully discharge the trust confided to it and shall pay over and duly account for all such sums of money as may come into its hands, by virtue of such trust, which said bond shall be approved as to form and the sufficiency of sureties by the county commissioners and the county commissioners may from time to time, as circumstances may require, demand additional security from any such trustee.
(3) The county commissioners may, if they so elect, by resolution recorded in the minutes of said board, waive the requirement of a bond of such trust company, when appointed trustee of county bonds, and take and accept in lieu thereof a bond in the usual form conditioned upon the proper accounting for all moneys deposited in said trust company and the moneys received by said trust company as trustee of county bonds shall be held by it as money deposited in any other county depository and the bond required of it as such depository shall secure the proper accounting for said moneys, which bond shall be approved by the board of county commissioners as to form, amount and sufficiency of sureties.
