accounting for moneys or other resources of a municipal corporation in
accordance with the uniform system of accounts prescribed by the state

include funds established for special improvement districts and other
funds containing moneys which, if raised by taxes, special ad valorem
levies or special assessments, would be raised by taxes, special ad
valorem levies or special assessments levied on property in less than
the entire area of the municipal corporation.

(b) "Moneys" shall mean moneys of the municipal corporation raised or
received from any source which are held in the custody of the chief
fiscal officer of the municipal corporation and are not immediately

proceeds from the sale of obligations or other moneys which, by law, may
be used only for stated purposes.

(c) "Chief fiscal officer" shall mean chief fiscal officer as defined
in paragraph five of section 2.00 of the local finance law.

3. Moneys temporarily advanced pursuant to this section shall be
repaid to the fund from which they were advanced as soon as available

special ad valorem levies or special assessments, would be raised from
taxes, ad valorem levies or special assessments on a different base of
properties than those for which taxes, ad valorem levies or special
assessments would be raised for the fund to which the advance is made,
the repayment shall include an amount reasonably estimated to be the
additional amount that would have been earned on the investment of
moneys in the fund making the advance had the advance not been made.
