29460.
  

The board of supervisors in any county in which the public administrator or guardian receives a salary in lieu of fees may, in addition to any other revolving fund, establish a revolving fund to be used by the public administrator and a revolving fund to be used by the public guardian in paying the respective fees, expenses, and charges incurred by them: (a) in securing the possession or protecting the assets of any estate, or (b) for the purpose of securing letters of administration, or letters of guardianship or conservatorship, in any estate in which the public administrator or guardian has no funds for the payment of such fees, charges, or expenses but anticipates securing sufficient assets to reimburse the county for such amounts, or (c) where accounting convenience would be served by making a single payment on behalf of several estates and funds are available for immediate reimbursement of the fund by cash transfer. When the offices of public administrator and public guardian are held by the same person, one revolving fund may be established to serve the purposes of both offices as provided herein.

(Amended by Stats. 1973, Ch. 427.)

The board shall fix the amount of the public administrator’s revolving fund and the amount of the public guardian’s revolving fund in a sum sufficient to enable the public administrator and the public guardian at all times to meet necessary fees, charges, and expenses.

(Amended by Stats. 1971, Ch. 892.)

29463.
  

As soon as sufficient assets of an estate are received by the public administrator or guardian, he shall replenish his revolving fund by payment from such assets. If the assets are insufficient therefor, the revolving fund shall be replenished by a warrant drawn by the auditor on the order of the board, based upon such vouchers as show proper evidence of the facts.

(Amended by Stats. 1971, Ch. 892.)

29464.
  

In all other respects, the provisions of Article 2 shall govern this fund.
