§17-17-7. Purchase, construction or repair of toll bridge.
When it is necessary to build or repair a toll bridge on any
county-district road, or to purchase any existing toll bridge on
such road within any county, or across the boundary thereof, the
county court of the county may contract for the same, or any part
thereof, on such terms as may be agreed upon, and take bond and
security from the contractors in the sum of fifty percent of the
amount of such contract, and pay for the same out of the county
road fund or out of the road funds of the district or districts
in which such improvement is located, or by issuing bonds for the
amount that may be agreed upon; and to this end the court shall
appoint a competent engineer to make a thorough investigation and
estimate of the cost of such improvement. Upon receiving the
estimate of cost, the court, if satisfied with the correctness of
same and the necessity and importance of such improvement, may
advertise for and receive proposals and make such other orders in
the premises from time to time as shall be necessary and proper.
