The St. Louis County Board, in addition to the power it now possesses to appropriate money to county agricultural societies, is hereby authorized to appropriate, to not more than ten duly organized community fair associations of its county, not to exceed $500 each. In no event shall more than twice the sum paid out in premiums by any community fair association be appropriated to it by the county board. Where there is more than one community fair association in a county, the county board in determining which association shall receive county funds shall consider the geographical location of the fair maintained by each and shall so make its appropriations to such associations that each different community and part of the county will share therein and be equally benefited thereby.
That before the county auditor of any such county shall deliver a warrant to any community fair association for any funds allowed under this section, the treasurer of such community fair association shall file a bond in the amount of $500 running to the said county, to be approved by the county board as to form and sufficiency of sureties thereon, conditioned that said treasurer will disburse said funds according to law.
