suitable plot for each county in the state for use for charitable
(b) The authorities having charge of the fiscal affairs of any
county desiring to use such plot shall file with the authority a
proposal setting forth the use to which such plot is to be placed,
the person or persons to have charge and control of the same, and
the nature of improvements to be placed thereon. Such proposal
shall also disclose how funds are to be secured for the improvement

authority deems proper and shall provide for the termination of the

Code section, the authority shall be under no further obligation to
furnish any such plot of land on Jekyll Island.
