incurred by said board of health or on its authority.

2. (a) Unless the board of health of such consolidated health district

amounts finally audited and approved by them respectively, and, if such
district be wholly in one county, shall deliver such abstract to the
clerk of the board of supervisors.

(b) If such consolidated health district be located in more than one
county the board of health of such district shall divide the total
amount of the consolidated health district abstract as audited and
approved in proportion to the assessed valuation of the real property of
the towns, villages or cities of such consolidated health district
located in each county, with a statement of the amount due from the real
property of each town, village or city of the consolidated health
district in each such county on account of the expenses of such board.

(c) The board of supervisors of each such county shall levy a tax upon
the real property of each town, village or city within such consolidated
health district sufficient to provide for the sums audited and approved
by the board of health thereof and chargeable to the real property of
each town, village or city of the consolidated health district in each
such county.

(d) Such sums, when collected and paid to the county treasurer of each
such county, respectively, shall be paid by him to the president of the
board of health and shall be disbursed by him in accordance with the
abstract of claims audited and approved by such board of health, as
provided by this section.

3. (a) The board of health of any consolidated health district may
annually make an estimate of the expenses of such board for the ensuing

deliver a certified copy of such estimate to the clerk of the board of
supervisors of such county prior to the annual meeting of the board
preceding such year.

(b) If such consolidated health district be located in more than one
county, the board of health of such district shall proportion the total
amount of such estimate in the same manner as provided by this section
for proportioning the expenses of such a district when audited and
approved by the board, and shall deliver to the clerk of the board of
supervisors of each such county a certified statement of the total
estimate and the amount due from the real property of each town, village
or city of the consolidated health district in each such county on
account thereof.

(c) The board of supervisors of each county shall levy a tax upon the
real property within such health district sufficient to provide for the
portion of the amount of such estimate chargeable to the real property

each such county.

(d) Such sums, when collected and paid to the county treasurer of each
county respectively, shall be paid by him to the president of the board
of health and shall be disbursed by the board of health in accordance
with the estimates.

(e) After such estimate system has been adopted by a consolidated
health district, the board of health thereof shall deduct from the
estimate for the succeeding calendar year the amount, if any, remaining

property of each town, village or city of the consolidated health
district in each such county is certified to the respective clerks of
