(b) Title to fixed assets which are expensed or loans amortized using county mental health and mental retardation funds shall remain with the county/joinder or the provider.

(3) Allow the contracted agency to purchase the fixed assets upon obtaining an independent appraisal of the fixed assets.
(d) If title remains with the provider under subsection (b), the fixed asset shall be made available by the provider for use in the county program for its useful life. If the provider holds title to the asset, the provider may pledge the asset as collateral for loans necessary to the agency.
(e) Income received when disposing of fixed assets, or received by the county in refunds from agencies, shall be used to reduce gross eligible expenditures in determining the amount eligible for Departmental participation.
