State Charities Law (L. 1896. ch. 546), S 115. $ 115. Reimbursement for maintenance expenses. - The board of managers of such colony may appoint an agent, whose duty it shall be to secure from relatives or friends who are liable therefor, or who may be willing to assume the cost of maintenance of any inmate therein, who is not maintained as a private patient, reimbursement in whole or in part of the money expended by the state for such purpose. Such agent shall perform such other duties as the board of managers may prescribe. The compensation of such agent shall be fixed by the board of managers at not more than five dollars per day, and he shall be allowed his necessary expenses, payable from the money appropriated for the support of such institution. If the board of managers believes that any inmate of such colony, not maintained therein as a private patient, has any property, or that any relative who would be liable for his support if he were not an inmate of such institution is of sufficient ability to wholly or partly provide for his maintenance therein, such board of managers may apply to a justice of the supreme court of the judicial district in which such institution is located for an order directing the application of the property of such inmate to his maintenance in such institution, or requiring the relatives so liable for his support to pay to such institution at the time specified in such order a stated amount for such maintenance. At least ten days' notice of the application of such order shall be given to such persons and in such manner as such justice shall direct, and such order shall be granted only after a hearing of parties interested who appear and desire to be heard. The relatives against whom such proceeding is instituted and who are served with the notice of the application for the order shall be deemed to be of sufficient ability, unless the contrary shall affirmatively appear to the satisfaction of such justice. If more than one relative is liable for the support of such inmate and is of sufficient ability to contribute to the expense of his maintenance in such institution, such order shall determine the portion of the expense of his maintenance to be paid by each. If the property of such inmate is not applied as directed in such order, or the relatives liable for the support of such inmate refuse or neglect to comply with such order, the board of managers of such colony may bring an action in the name of such institution to recover the amount due such institution by virtue of such order. (Added by L. 1902, ch. 356, in effect April 3, 1902.)
