59. The council may provide sufficient appropriations in the budget of the Community for the reimbursement of a class of expenses which the members of the council, the executive committee or any other committee may incur on behalf of the Community during the fiscal year, whether such expenses are actually incurred or provided for in the tariff.
The prior authorization required under section 57 for an act included in a class for which appropriations are provided in the budget is limited to the authorization to perform the act, without reference to the maximum amount of expenses allowed. This maximum amount is deemed to be the balance of the appropriations provided for that class of acts after subtracting previous reimbursements or, as the case may be, the amount provided for in the tariff for that act.
If all the appropriations for a fiscal year have been used, the council may appropriate, for the purposes provided for in this section, all or part of the balance of the sums provided for in the budget to cover unforeseen administrative expenses.
