§44-4-9. Publication of list of fiduciaries prior to settlements.

Every fiduciary commissioner shall, on the first Monday of every month, prepare a list of the fiduciaries whose accounts are at the date of such list before him for settlement, except those that may have been mentioned in some previous list. He shall state the names of the fiduciaries, the nature of their accounts, whether as they act as personal representative, guardian, curator or committee and the names of their decedents, or of the persons for whom they are guardians, curators or committees. He shall also publish such list each month as a Class II legal advertisement in compliance with the provisions of article three, chapter fifty-nine of this code, and the publication area for such publication shall be the county. The first publication of the list shall be made on said first Monday of the month, or on some following day of the same week. No account of any fiduciary shall be completed by any fiduciary commissioner until it has been mentioned in such a list, nor until the completion of the publication. Any fiduciary commissioner who fails to publish this list shall be fined $20. The cost of the publication of the list shall be borne by the fiduciary commissioner, but he may charge to, and collect from, each of the fiduciaries in the list his proportionate part of the cost thereof as and when the fiduciary commissioner collects his fees for settling the accounts of the fiduciary.
