AGO 1955 NO. 32 >

A claim against a county for services performed during the preceding year, filed within thirty days thereof, is properly payable out of the previous year's budget appropriation, although such payment may be made after that time.The lapse provision for county budget appropriations in RCW 36.40.200 applies only to time for filing claims not to the time for payment.
