Sec. 13a-10. Powers and duties. Bills. Account. The superintendent of highways
and bridges shall possess the powers and shall perform the duties in and for such town
which are conferred and imposed by law upon the selectmen for the care and maintenance
of highways, bridges and sidewalks, and all provisions of the general statutes or special
acts conferring powers and imposing duties upon the selectmen for the care and maintenance of highways, bridges and sidewalks and the building and opening of new highways, bridges and sidewalks in any such town shall be construed to transfer such powers
and duties to such superintendent. In towns having a board of finance he shall make and
submit to such board all estimates for such maintenance and repair of highways, bridges
and sidewalks and the building and opening of new highways, bridges and sidewalks
each year at the time and in the manner provided by law for estimates by the board of
selectmen. Such superintendent shall be limited in his expenditures made and liabilities
incurred during any fiscal year to the appropriations made by such board of finance and
approved by the town, except in case of actual necessity involving the immediate repair
of any highway, bridge or sidewalk, and then not more than one thousand dollars. All
bills against the town relating to such maintenance and repair of highways, bridges and
sidewalks and the building and opening of new highways, bridges and sidewalks shall
be certified by such superintendent and approved by the selectmen and, when so certified
and approved, shall be paid by the treasurer of the town upon the requisition of the
superintendent. No bill for material furnished to the superintendent for the use of the
town shall be paid until the same is certified by the person furnishing such material to
the effect that the materials called for by such bill have been actually delivered to the
town and for the prices therein stated. On or before the first Tuesday of September in
each year, the superintendent shall make and file with the board of finance in each town
having a board of finance a detailed statement of disbursements made by him during
the preceding fiscal year, with vouchers therefor. Such account shall be audited by the
board of finance and, when so audited, shall be filed with the selectmen, who shall
incorporate the same in their annual report.
