169.0.7. The board of directors may provide sufficient appropriations in the budget of the transit authority for the reimbursement, pursuant to section 169.0.5 or 169.0.6, of expenses entailed by particular classes of acts that the members of the board may perform on behalf of the transit authority as part of their duties.
The prior authorization required by section 169.0.4 in respect of 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. The maximum amount is deemed to be the balance of the appropriations for acts of that class, after deducting all previous reimbursements, or, where applicable, the amount prescribed in the tariff for that act.
If no appropriations are available, the board of directors may appropriate, for the purposes of the first paragraph, all or part of the balance of the sums provided in the budget to cover emergencies; the sums so appropriated are considered to be appropriations.
