(a) In Baldwin County, there is levied an additional recording fee of three dollars ($3), and the Baldwin County Commission may impose, by resolution of the county commission, an additional recording fee not to exceed two dollars ($2), which shall be charged and collected on each instrument, unless the instrument is otherwise exempt from all fees filed for record in the office of the judge of probate. The office of the judge of probate shall not receive an instrument, unless the instrument is otherwise exempt from the payment of a filing fee, for filing unless the filing fee required by this part is paid. The fees required by this part shall be in addition to all other fees provided by law.
(b) One dollar ($1) from each three dollar ($3) additional recording fee collected shall be deposited by the county commission in a special fund established in a bank located in Baldwin County to be used for the purpose of establishing, operating, and maintaining the county legislative delegation office. Disbursements from the fund shall be made by the county commission only upon direction of a majority of the members of the county legislative delegation who reside in Baldwin County. Any unexpended balance in the fund at the end of the county fiscal year shall remain in the fund and shall not revert to any other state or local fund. Starting with the 2000 fiscal year budget, the county commission may make such appropriations as it deems necessary from time to time from the county general fund to the special fund for the county legislative delegation office.
(c) Fees collected under this part shall be audited by the Examiners of Public Accounts.(Act 98-579, p. 1283, §6; Act 2000-275, p. 437, §1.)
