Article 4. Funds of California Harbors And Navigation Code >> Division 7. >> Chapter 2. >> Article 4.

All bonds sold for any purpose contemplated by this chapter shall be sold for not less than their par value and accrued interest. The proceeds shall be deposited in the treasury of the county and placed to the credit of a special fund designated, ____ harbor fund, created by order of the commission for that purpose, and the proceeds of the sale of the bonds shall be used solely and exclusively for the purpose for which they were issued. The commission may receive donations and place them to the credit of the fund. These shall be used only for the purpose for which they were donated. Money shall not be paid out of the fund except upon warrant of the county auditor, issued upon the written order of the commission, and duly allowed and approved by the board.
Prior to the voting of bonds, the board may in all work under this chapter, incur, permit to accrue, audit, approve and pay any demand, debt or obligation against the county in a sum not to exceed five thousand dollars in the aggregate.
Upon a showing of necessity by the commission, the board may, by a four-fifths vote, permit the expenditure of an additional five thousand dollars. More than one thousand dollars shall not be appropriated at any one time.
All money shall be paid out of the general fund of the county until there is money in the harbor fund sufficient to reimburse the general fund of the county, when it shall be reimbursed, and thereafter all sums shall be paid out of the harbor fund.
The board, on recommendation of the commission, may use any and all moneys in the harbor fund in conjunction with the State or Federal Government, in any harbor improvement, development or protection undertaken by the State or Federal Government, or it may place all or any moneys in such fund at the disposal of the State or Federal Government for use in the improvement, development or protection of the harbor.
The commission shall, once in each six months, make out and verify under oath, and file with the board, a detailed statement of its proceedings, showing:
  (a) The amount of money in the harbor fund at the time of the last report.
  (b) The amounts of all donations since received and the purpose for which the donations were made.
  (c) The amount since expended, and the purpose for which it was expended.
  (d) The balance remaining on hand in the fund.
