9-1401.Designation of depositories for municipal and quasi-municipal funds; duty of public officers; eligible depositories. (a) The governing body of any municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation shall designate by official action recorded upon its minutes the banks, savings and loan associations and savings banks which shall serve as depositories of its funds and the officer and official having the custody of such funds shall not deposit such funds other than at such designated banks, savings and loan associations and savings banks. The banks, savings and loan associations and savings banks which have main or branch offices in the county or counties in which all or part of such municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation is located shall be designated as such official depositories if the municipal or quasi-municipal corporation can obtain satisfactory security therefor.

(b) Every officer or person depositing public funds shall deposit all such public funds coming into such officer or person's possession in their name and official title as such officer. If the governing body of the municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation fails to designate an official depository or depositories, the officer thereof having custody of its funds shall deposit such funds with one or more banks, savings and loan associations or savings banks which have main or branch offices in the county or counties in which all or part of such municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation is located if satisfactory security can be obtained therefor and if not then elsewhere, but upon so doing shall serve notice in writing on the governing body showing the names and locations of such banks, savings and loan associations and savings banks where such funds are deposited, and upon so doing the officer having custody of such funds shall not be liable for the loss of any portion thereof except for official misconduct or for the misappropriation of such funds by such officer.

(c) If eligible banks, savings and loan associations or savings banks under subsections (a) or (b) cannot or will not provide an acceptable bid, which shall include services, for the depositing of public funds under this section, then banks, savings and loan associations or savings banks which have main or branch offices in an adjoining county to the county in which all or part of such municipal or quasi-municipal corporation is located may receive deposits of such municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation, if such banks, savings and loan associations or savings banks have been designated as official depositories under subsection (a) and the municipal corporation or quasi-municipal corporation can obtain satisfactory security therefor.
