AGO Opinions with Topic: BONDS OF DEPUTIES OR EMPLOYEES OF COUNTY OFFICIALS
AGO 1952 No. 235 >  February 7, 1952
BONDS OF DEPUTIES OR EMPLOYEES OF COUNTY OFFICIALS
BONDS OF DEPUTIES OR EMPLOYEES OF COUNTY OFFICIALS
County commissioners may require bonds of employees or deputy county officers and set the amount of the bond; such bonds should run to the State of Washington unless a specific statute requires that they run to the county, and such bonds should also run to the superior of such deputy or employee.  The duty of approving such bonds rests with the county commissioners who may set the conditions which should be similar to the conditions imposed upon the county officer whose deputy or employee is concerned.
