A district welfare board shall provide in a budget to be made up six weeks prior to
the annual meetings of the respective boards of chosen freeholders concerned, the
total expense of the maintenance and operation of the district welfare-house, and
all expenses including wages and salaries, and shall apportion the amount among the
several counties as provided in section 44:1-48 of this title. Within two weeks after the budget is made up it shall be approved by the state commissioner
of municipal accounts, and certified as correct, whereupon it shall be certified to
the respective boards of chosen freeholders in order that the quota of each county
for the establishment, maintenance and upkeep of the district welfare-house may be
provided for. Such cost shall be a charge upon each county or portion thereof participating in
the purpose. The quota of each county shall be assessed and collected by the board of chosen
freeholders from the municipalities of the county participating in the purpose, in
the manner in which other taxes are assessed and collected.
