An Act to correct a cross-reference relating to sheriff's compensation.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of South Dakota:

Section 1. That § 7-12-17 be AMENDED.

7-12-17. Mileage and food allowances unaffected by salary provisions--Deduction for housing furnished by county.

Nothing in § 7-12-15 or 7-12-16, however, shall Section 7-12-15 may not be construed to change the reimbursement of the sheriff for costs of mileage incurred while on official business nor or to change the fee received by the sheriff for the costs of food for boarding of prisoners. In the event that If housing and utilities are furnished by a county to the sheriff, the county board of commissioners is authorized to may establish a reasonable value for such quarters, based upon the general level of housing accommodation rentals prevailing at the county seat, and to deduct from the regular salary of the sheriff an equivalent amount therefor.
