  68.240.  County collector's and treasurer's duties — use of moneys upon expiration of tax. — 1.  The county collector of each county in which the district is located, or the collector for the city in which the district is located if the district is located in a city not within a county, shall collect the real property tax made upon all real property within that county and district, in the same manner as other real property taxes are collected.

  2.  Every county or municipal collector and treasurer having collected or received district real property taxes shall, on or before the fifteenth day of each month and after deducting the reasonable and actual cost of such collection but not to exceed one percent of the total amount collected, remit to the port authority the amount collected or received by the port authority prior to the first day of such month.  Upon receipt of such money, the port authority shall execute a receipt therefor, which shall be forwarded or delivered to the county collector or city treasurer who collected such money.  The port authority shall deposit such sums which are designated for a specific project into a special trust fund to be expended solely for such purpose, or to the port authority treasury if such sums are not designated.  The county or municipal collector or treasurer and port authority shall make final settlement of the port authority account and costs owing, not less than once each year, if necessary.

  3.  The port authority shall repeal by resolution the continuation of any real property tax imposed pursuant to section 68.235 when all obligations of the port improvement project have been met, unless the real property tax in any way secures outstanding obligations of the port improvement project or covers ongoing expenses the port authority has incurred to pay qualified project costs of any of the approved port improvement project.

  4.  Upon the expiration or termination of any real property tax adopted pursuant to this section which is designated for a specific project, all funds remaining in the special trust fund shall continue to be used solely for the specific purpose designated in the ballot adopted by the qualified voters.  Any remaining funds in such special trust fund which exceed any remaining obligations of the port improvement project and are not needed to cover ongoing expenses shall be refunded pro rata to the property owners.
