J. MILLARD TAWES, Governor 9
501. (a) The Board of County Commissioners of Garrett County
shall publish, during the second month next succeeding the close
of its fiscal year, an accurate statement of all receipts and expendi-
tures of said Board for the preceding year. Said report shall show
all amounts of cash on hand or on deposit at the beginning and
end of the fiscal year covered by said statement and the total in-
debtedness, both funded and unfunded, and the total amount of
unpaid obligations or warrants, owing by the County at the be-
ginning and end of said fiscal period. Said report shall be prepared
by the [Clerk to the County Commissioners] county business man-
ager and shall be sworn to by said [Clerk] business manager and
also the President of said Board. The aforesaid publication shall
be made in the county newspaper which submits the lowest bid for
publishing the annual statements herein required; if the bids so
received from county newspapers for such publication are in the
same amount or too high according to the judgment of the Board
of County Commissioners then in lieu of such publication in a
county newspaper, the said Board shall publish or set forth in
pamphlet form the annual statements herein required, the same
to be given or sent to any citizen of the county upon application
therefor. In event said report is published in one of the county
newspapers, the board having same published shall cause to be
printed such number of copies thereof, in pamphlet form, as said
board shall determine will be sufficient to meet the requirements
of any taxpayers who may desire the same, the bids submitted by
the publishers to include the cost of this printing.
(b) The [Clerk to the County Commissioners] county business
manager who shall fail to perform the duty imposed by this section,
and to have the reports published as required, shall forfeit the sum
of one hundred dollars and be subject to removal from office for
neglect of duty.
