AGO 1951 NO. 83 > Jun 29 1951

A contemplated emergency order appropriating $22,000 for an aerial survey for the county assessor after the county commissioner had considered a larger item for the same purpose and stricken it in the regular budget would not constitute an emergency.

AGO 1951 NO. 113 > Aug 31 1951

Although there is no expressed statutory authority authorizing the county commissioners to expend money for an aerial survey, it may be implied that such an expenditure would be proper.
