Unless otherwise provided by county ordinance, any school warrant not presented to the county treasurer within six months after it was issued is void and any order issued by the governing board of a community college district, but not approved by the county superintendent of schools for want of funds, is void if not presented to the county superintendent of schools within two years after notice has been given that the order will be approved on presentation. The county auditor shall each month inform the county superintendent of schools of warrants which have become void during the preceding month and the county superintendent of schools shall transmit such information to the governing board of the district together with information as to orders which have become void.
Any time within two years from the date on which the original warrant became void, the payee, assignee, or the legal representative or heir of a deceased payee of any warrant which is void as provided in this section may present such warrant to the governing board of the community college district which issued the order on which the warrant was drawn, or declare by affidavit that such warrant has been lost or destroyed, and the governing board may adopt an order instructing the county auditor to draw a new warrant in favor of the payee in the same amount as the original warrant, or the governing board may by resolution authorize the county auditor to draw new warrants within the limitations prescribed by the resolution without prior individual order of the governing board, provided the limitations prescribed by this section have been complied with. Any such new warrant shall be subject to the same limitations as the original warrant which it replaces.
