The Supervisor of Tax Collection shall deposit to the credit of Garrett County all money in the custody of the Supervisor of Tax Collection that is received for county taxes and dues in such bank as the Director of Finance may see fit. The money shall be drawn only by the Director of Finance and only for claims which may have been levied and ordered paid by the County Commissioners.
(B) If sufficient taxes have not been collected to pay any orders as have been drawn against the levy, the County Commissioners are hereby authorized, if necessary, to borrow, on the faith and credit of the county, after September 1 of each year, a sum not to exceed the total uncollected taxes for the current year at the legal rate of interest, the same to be repaid from current tax collections.
