district funds or moneys shall, while acting as such depository, furnish the
district with a copy of all statements of resources and liabilities which it is
required to furnish to the Commissioner of Banks and Real Estate or to the Comptroller of the Currency and no bank is qualified

with copies of the last 2 such statements.
The treasurer of the district shall be discharged from responsibility
for all funds and moneys while they are deposited in a designated bank or

depository is designated and is qualified. When a new depository is
designated, the district shall notify the sureties of the treasurer of that
fact in writing at least 5 days before the transfer of funds.
