Memorandum


    Since this permissible language and does not obligate the county commission, we do not see a problem. We think it would be better if: (f) required a separate fund rather than a separate account within the general fund.
    
    (f) The county commission shall deposit the fee into a separate account, which shall be used to:
    (1) Improve public safety efforts, especially for police and fire personnel, who most often contend with the dangerous situations manifested in vacant properties;
    (2) Monitor and administer this section; and
    (3) Repair, close or demolish a vacant structure as authorized by section three-ff of this article
