§13-2D-10. No contribution by county.
No county court shall have the power to pay out of its general funds, or otherwise contribute, any of the cost of acquiring or constructing an airport or its appurtenances and facilities, which is to be financed out of the proceeds of the sale of revenue bonds issued under the authority of this article: Provided, That this provision shall not be construed to prevent a county from paying for the acquisition of property for an airport or for the construction, equipment, improvement, maintenance and operation of any airport pursuant to other provisions of this code so long as any such acquisition of property or the construction, equipment, improvement, maintenance and operation of such airport is not financed by the proceeds from the sale of revenue bonds issued under the authority of this article: Provided, however, That this provision shall not be construed to prevent a county from accepting donations of property to be used as a part of any such airport. The bonds issued pursuant to this article shall be payable solely from the revenue derived from the airport, less operating and maintenance cost and expenses, and shall not constitute an indebtedness of the county within the meaning of any constitutional provision and it shall be plainly stated on the face of each bond that it has been issued under the provisions of this article and that it does not constitute an indebtedness of the county within the meaning of the constitution of West Virginia.

No county court shall have the authority under this article to levy any taxes for the purpose of paying any part of the cost of acquiring an airport to be financed under the provisions of this article. However, all necessary preliminary expenses actually incurred by a county court in the making of studies, surveys, taking options, preliminary planning, and all other expenses necessary to be paid prior to the issuance, sale and delivery of the revenues bonds, may be paid by such county court out of any surplus contained in any item of budgetary appropriation or any revenues collected in excess of anticipated revenues, which shall be reimbursed and repaid out of the proceeds of the sale of the revenue bonds.
