44:7-24. Ascertainment and appropriation of county’s share of cost; temporary rates; payments
Subject to payment of the State’s share, each county welfare board shall furnish old age assistance as provided in this chapter to the persons eligible therefor in its jurisdiction. The county welfare board, by and with the advice and consent of the State division, shall annually fix and determine and report to its board of chosen freeholders a sum sufficient to pay the estimated amount of the county’s proportionate share needed for old age assistance. Each board of chosen freeholders shall appropriate and make available such amount to the order of the respective county welfare boards, together with a sufficient sum to defray administrative expenses to be incurred in connection therewith, and shall include such sums in the taxes to be levied in the territory responsible for such old age assistance. Should the sum so appropriated, however, be expended or exhausted, during the year and for the purpose for which it was appropriated, additional sums shall be appropriated by such boards of chosen freeholders as occasion demands to carry out the provisions of this chapter, from funds in the county treasury available therefor. Where such county funds are not available or adequate, or should there be no such county funds, such additional sums shall be raised by temporary loans or notes, certificates of indebtedness or temporary loan bonds, to be issued as otherwise provided and limited by law for counties of this State, and the amounts necessary to pay such obligations shall be placed in the budget for the next ensuing fiscal year.
Payments of county funds needed for assistance under this chapter and for the administration thereof by the county welfare board shall be made monthly by the treasurer of the county upon the requisition of and to the secretary-treasurer of the county welfare board.
