§ 45-21-21. Recovery or other disposition of bond
(1) If no court action or proceeding has been instituted against the holder of such permit to recover property damage incurred as a direct result of such event, if no fine assessed against the holder of such permit for failure to substantially comply with the specifications and plans certified by the state board of health or any pertinent regulation of the state board of health about which the holder of the permit had written notice prior to such certification remains unpaid and if no additional law enforcement expense remains unpaid, then sixty (60) days after the conclusion of such event the sheriff shall return the full amount of the cash bond to the party posting it thereof.
(2) If a court action or proceeding has been instituted against the holder of such permit, then the sheriff shall place such cash bond with such court where such action or proceeding has been instituted to be placed in escrow. If no such court action or proceeding has been instituted but a fine assessed against the holder of such permit for failure to comply with the health and safety regulations remains unpaid, or if any additional law enforcement expense remains unpaid, then the sheriff shall reimburse the political subdivision reasonably incurring such legitimate additional law enforcement expenses, the sheriff shall forward to the court assessing such fine portions of the cash bond to meet such obligations and the sheriff shall forward the remainder of such cash bond returned to the party posting. If the cash bond is insufficient to meet such obligations, then the cash bond shall be apportioned equally among such court and such political subdivision.
