(1) All items transferred under ORS 526.144, together with any equipment purchased from moneys transferred to the equipment pool, are available for all activities or programs participating in the equipment pool. However, upon use of such equipment for any activity or program, a reasonable use charge shall be made against such activity or program. The charge shall be based upon the maintenance and replacement costs for the equipment used, including operational expenses.

Administrative costs in connection with the operation of the equipment pool shall be included in the computation of the mileage or rental statement. The forester shall at all times keep records showing the mileage and rental charges, and against which activity or program the charges are a claim. The amount specified in the statement shall be a charge against the moneys available for such activity or program. All amounts so charged shall be credited to the State Forestry Department Account and, notwithstanding ORS 291.238, are available and shall be used exclusively for:

(a) The acquisition, operation, storage, maintenance, repair and replacement of equipment by the forester;

(b) Administrative expenses of the forester and the board in connection therewith; and
