§ 1717. Prohibitions on expenditures--Violations--Penalties
A. No expenditure may be authorized or made by any employee or member of the board which exceeds any fund balance for any fund of the budget as adopted or amended or which exceeds the appropriation for any fund of the budget as adopted or amended. Any balance remaining in a fund at the end of the budget year shall be carried forward to the credit of the fund for the next budget year.
B. It shall be unlawful for any employee or member of the board in any budget year:
1. To create or authorize creation of a deficit in any fund; or
2. To authorize, make or incur expenditures or encumbrances in excess of ninety percent (90%) of the appropriation for any fund of the budget as adopted or amended until revenues in an amount equal to at least ninety percent (90%) of the appropriation for the fund have been collected. Any fund balance which is included in the appropriation for the fund is considered revenue in the budget year for which it is appropriated. Expenditures may then be made and authorized so long as any expenditure does not exceed any fund balance.
C. Any obligation that is contracted or authorized by any member or employee of the board in violation of this act1 shall become the obligation of the member or employee himself and shall not be valid or enforceable against the district. Any member or employee who violates this act shall forfeit his position and shall be subject to such civil and criminal punishments as are provided by law. Any obligation, authorization for expenditure or expenditure made in violation of this act shall be illegal and void.
