AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TREASURER OF NORFOLK COUNTY TO PAY CERTAIN UNPAID BILLS.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
The county treasurer of the county of Norfolk, with the approval of the county
commissioners of said county, is hereby authorized to pay from any available funds during
the current fiscal year, such of the unpaid bills incurred by said county
and totaling two thousand four hundred thirty-six dollars and fifty-two
cents as set forth in a list on file in the office of the bureau of
accounts in the department of revenue for goods supplied and services
rendered to said county during the years nineteen hundred and eighty
through nineteen hundred and eighty-three, which bills are legally
unenforceable against said county by reason of their being incurred in
excess of available appropriations.
No bill shall be approved by the county commissioners of said county or
paid by the county treasurer thereof, under the authority of this act, unless and
until a certificate has been signed and filed with said county treasurer
stating under the penalties of perjury that the goods or services for which
such bill had been submitted were ordered by an official or an employee of
said county, and that such goods were delivered and actually received by
said county and that such services were actually rendered to said county or both.
No payments shall be made hereunder until and unless approved by a vote
of the Norfolk county advisory board with a quorum present and voting.
SECTION 3. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
