If the board and the governing body or bodies cannot agree upon the price to be paid for an almshouse and its equipment, then the price shall be fixed by three appraisers, one to be appointed by the board of freeholders, one by the governing body or bodies, and a third to be selected by the two appraisers; and the price to be paid shall be that fixed by all or any two of the appraisers in writing, signed by them.
Upon the payment by the board of freeholders to the governing body or bodies of the price agreed upon, or the price fixed by the appraisers, the governing body or bodies shall convey and transfer the almshouse and equipment to the county.
