    Sec. 205-95. Fiscal year; budget.
    (a) Upon the acquisition of a system under this Article, the township board shall establish by resolution the beginning and ending of the fiscal year for the operation of the system. That period shall constitute the budget year for the maintenance and operation of the system.
    (b) At least 30 days before the beginning of the first fiscal year after the acquisition of the system, the township board shall prepare a tentative budget and shall include all proposed operation and maintenance expenses for the ensuing fiscal year. The budget shall be considered by the township board, and after consideration and any revision by the board, it shall be adopted not later than 30 days after the beginning of the fiscal year. No expenditures in excess of the budget shall be made during the fiscal year unless authorized by a two-thirds vote of the board.
    (c) It shall not be necessary to include in the budget any statement of expenditures for debt service, but the board shall make provision for those payments as they become due. No money shall be paid out from the water fund of the township except upon an order signed by the supervisor and township clerk and approved by the board. Each order shall specify the purpose for which it is to be paid, and there shall be endorsed on the order the name of the particular account out of which it is payable.
