SECTION 1. That sections 4836f and 4836h of the Re- Two-mile asvised Statutes be amended so as to read as follows:

county): Sec. 4836f. For the purpose of providing by general taxation a fund out of which not less than one-third of the levies for concost and expense of all improvements made under the pro- repair of im. visions of this act can be paid, the commissioners of such proved roads. county are hereby authorized to levy upon the grand duplicate of the county, not exceeding seven-tenths of one mill in any one year upon each dollar of the valuation of the taxable property in such county. And said commissioners shall at all times cause all necessary repairs to be made on such roads already constructed, or hereafter to be constructed or improved for their proper maintenance; and for such purpose may and they are hereby authorized to levy a tax upon the grand duplicate of the county, not exceeding four-tenths of one mill in any one year upon each dollar of the valuation of taxable property in such county. At their March session annually the commissioners shall divide each completed stone road in such county into sections of not more than two miles in length for the purpose of controlling the repairs of such roads. They shall at the same time make an estimate of the amount of materials required to keep each of said sections in proper condition during the next following year and decide upon the most convenient places for having said material delivered. They shall then fix a day on which they will let to the lowest responsible bidder the job of furnishing and delivering the said materials at the place decided upon and of keeping the said sections in repair for the period of one year according to specifications to be submitted to the bidders. They shall require and entertain separate bids for furnishing the material at the designated places of delivery, and for doing the necessary labor in keeping said sections in repair. When the necessary preliminary steps, as herein

before provided, have been taken, they shall cause three weeks' notice to be given by advertisement and handbills posted up on the lines of said roads, of the time when and place where bids for furnishing and delivering the said material and doing the said work will be received. They shall enter into contract with the sucessful bidder, and shall require good and sufficient bond of him for the faithful performance of the same, reserving the right to terminate each and every contract whenever in their opinion its provisions are not complied with. Before paying for any material furnished under contracts entered into in accordance with the provisions of this section it shall be the duty of the said board of county commissioners to inspect the same as to quality and quantity furnished. And said respective levies shall be in addition to all other levies authorized by law, notwithstanding any limitation upon the aggregrate amount of such levies now in force. The proceeds of the levies hereby authorized to be made, shall be applied and used by the county commissioners in the construction and repair of such macadamized, stone and gravel roads, as the case may be, and for no other purpose, and these funds shall not be subject to distribution to the townships but shall be expended under the direct orders and supervision of the county commissioners.
