Except as otherwise provided by law, no further 9 appropriations shall be made at any other time within such 10 fiscal year, provided that the governing body of such 11 municipality may from time to time make transfers between the 12 various items in any fund in such appropriation ordinance not 13 exceeding in the aggregate ten per cent of the total amount 14 appropriated in such fund by such ordinance, may transfer 15 funds received by the taxing district as the result of an 16 erroneous distribution of property taxes by a county 17 treasurer back to that county treasurer without amending the 18 budget and appropriation ordinance, and may amend such budget 19 and appropriation ordinance from time to time by the same 20 procedure as is herein provided for the original adoption of 21 a budget and appropriation ordinance; provided that nothing 22 in this section shall be construed to permit transfers 23 between funds required by law to be kept separate. 24 (Source: P.A. 89-548, eff. 1-1-97.) 25 Section 5.
