(A)   The Clerk-Treasurer of the Town of Akron shall establish a "Rainy Day Fund" to receive transfers of unused and unencumbered funds raised by a general or special tax levy on taxable property within the Town of Akron whenever the purpose of such levy has been fulfilled and an unused and unencumbered balance remains.
   (B)   The funds on deposit in the Rainy Day Fund may be used for the operation of the Town of Akron and its various departments, when the Town of Akron does not have sufficient levies or funds to pay such costs, including, but not limited to, purchase of equipment, payment of operating expenses of any department or office of the Town, or for any other purpose for which property taxes may be imposed.
   (C)   The Town Council shall determine the amount, if any, of any unused and unencumbered prior year funds available to be transferred to the Rainy Day Fund, which transfer may not exceed more than 10% of the Town of Akron's total budget for said fiscal year.
   (D)   The Town Council of the Town of Akron may authorize the expenditure of funds from the Rainy Day Fund by appropriations made in the same manner as other funds are appropriated that receive tax monies, upon making a finding that the proposed use of the funds is consistent with the intent of the Fund.
