(A) The Municipal Treasurer may, upon resolution of the governing body authorizing the same, purchase certificates of deposit from and make time deposits in any bank or capital stock financial institution in the state to the extent that such certificates of deposit or time deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Deposits may be made in excess of the amounts so secured by the corporation, and the amount of the excess deposit shall be secured by a bond or by security given in the manner provided in this section. The provisions of Neb. RS 77-2366 shall apply to deposits in capital stock financial institutions.
(B) For the security of the fund so deposited, the Municipal Treasurer shall require each depository to give bond for the safekeeping and payment of such deposits and the accretions thereof, which bond shall run to the municipality and be approved by the Chairperson. The bond shall be conditioned that such a depository shall, at the end of every quarter, render to the Treasurer a statement in duplicate, showing the several daily balances, the amount of money of the municipality held by it during the quarter, the amount of the accretion thereto and how credited. The bond shall also be conditioned that the depository shall generally do and perform whatever may be required by the provisions of this section and all regulations imposed by law or adopted by the governing body for the receiving and holding thereof and shall faithfully discharge the trust reposed in the depository. The bond shall be nearly as practicable in the form provided in Neb. RS 77-2304. No person in any way connected with any depository as an officer or stockholder shall be accepted as a surety on any bond given by the depository of which he or she is an officer or stockholder. The bond shall be deposited with the Municipal Clerk.
(C) In lieu of the bond required by division (B) above, any bank or capital stock financial institution making application to become a depository may give security as provided in the Public Funds Deposit Security Act, being Neb. RS 77-2386 to 77-23,108 to the Municipal Clerk. The penal sum of such bond shall be equal to or greater that the amount of the deposit in excess of that portion of such deposit insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
(D) The Treasurer shall not have on deposit in any bank or capital stock financial institution at any time more than the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, plus the maximum amount of the bond given by the bank or capital stock financial institution if the bank or capital stock financial institution gives a surety bond, not in any bank or capital stock financial institution giving a personal bond, more than the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, plus one-half of the amount of the bond of such bank or capital stock financial institution, and the amount so on deposit any time with any such bank or capital stock financial institution shall not in either case exceed the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, plus the paid-up capital stock and surplus of such bank or capital stock financial institution. The Treasurer shall not be liable for any loss sustained by reason of the failure of any such bonded depository whose bond has been duly approved by the Chairperson as provided in division (B) above or which has, in lieu of a surety bond, given security as provided in division (C) above.
