  245.515.  County treasurer to be treasurer of board. — The county treasurer of the county in which the greater part of any organized levee district lies shall be the treasurer of the levee fund of the district, until paid out upon the warrants issued by order of the board of directors of the levee district.  Before receiving any funds belonging to the levee district, the treasurer shall give a separate bond, with sufficient security, in double the probable amount of the levee fund that shall come into his hands, payable to the state of Missouri, to be approved by the board of directors, conditioned for the faithful disbursement, according to law, of all such moneys as shall, from time to time, come into his hands to the credit of the levee fund of the levee district of which the county of which he is treasurer is part; and such bond shall be filed in the office of the clerk of the county commission of the county in which said treasurer is appointed or elected.  On the forfeiture of such bond, it shall be the duty of the clerk of the county commission in whose office such bond is filed to collect the same for the use of the levee district.  If such clerk shall neglect or refuse to prosecute, any resident of the district may cause prosecution to be instituted.  It shall be the duty of the board of directors in no case to permit the county treasurer having the custody of the levee funds of the district to have in his possession at any one time an amount of levee funds over one-half the amount of the security available in the bond.  Such treasurer shall be allowed such compensation for his services as the board of directors deems advisable, not to exceed one-half of one percent of all levee funds disbursed by him, and to be paid out of the levee funds.
