Adoption of the budget, pursuant to section 383B.111, by the board shall constitute appropriations of the amounts specified therein to the funds and departments indicated and shall constitute for each fund a levy of the tax therein as required.
Each appropriation, except an appropriation for a capital expenditure and those restricted or varied forward pursuant to section 383B.112, subdivision 1, lapses at the close of the fiscal year to the extent that it has not been expended or encumbered. An appropriation for a capital expenditure continues in force until the purpose for which it was made has been accomplished or abandoned. The purpose of a capital expenditure appropriation shall be deemed abandoned if three years pass from the date of the appropriation without a disbursement from or encumbrance of the appropriation.
