     7-6-2345. Use of emergency warrants. (1) All emergency expenditures shall be made by the issuance of emergency warrants drawn against the fund or funds properly chargeable with such expenditures. The county treasurer is authorized and directed to pay such emergency warrants with any money in such fund or funds available for such purpose. If at any time there shall not be sufficient money available in such fund or funds to pay such warrants, then such warrants shall be registered, bear interest, and be called in for payment in the manner provided by law for other county warrants.
     (2) The county clerk and recorder shall include in his annual tabulation to be submitted to the board of county commissioners the total amount of emergency warrants issued during the preceding fiscal year. Subject to the provisions of subsection (3), the county commissioners shall, in their tax levies, include a levy for each fund sufficient to raise an amount equal to the total amount of such warrants, if there be any, remaining unpaid at the close of such preceding fiscal year because of insufficient money in such fund to pay the same.
     (3) (a) No levy shall be made for any fund in excess of the levy authorized by law to be made therefor.
     (b) The board may submit the question of funding such emergency warrants at any election as provided by law, and if at any such election the issuing of such funding bonds be authorized, it shall not then be necessary for any levy to be made for the purpose of paying such emergency warrants.
