All income realized from properties under the jurisdiction
of the Department of Natural Resources shall be paid into
the State Parks Fund, except that income realized from properties managed and
operated principally as wildlife, forestry or fisheries areas shall be paid
into the Wildlife and Fish Fund. All income realized
from violations of this Act, other State laws and related regulations,
or local laws within such properties, except violations of the

derived from fines, penalties and other actions of county or municipal law
enforcement personnel, may be retained by the county or municipality where
the violations occurred.
The Department of Natural Resources may, upon written
authorization of the Director of the Department, establish local
bank or savings and loan association accounts to temporarily hold this income.
All local bank or savings and loan association accounts established pursuant to
this Section shall be in the name of the Department of Natural Resources and
shall be subject to regular audits. The balance in a
local bank or savings and loan association account shall be forwarded to the
Department of Natural Resources for deposit with the State
Treasurer on Monday of each week if the amount to be deposited in a fund
exceeds $500 or within 30 days after deposit.
No bank or savings and loan association shall receive public funds as
permitted by this Section, unless it has complied with the requirements
established pursuant to Section 6 of the Public Funds Investment Act.
