The portion of  any such rental charge which is in reimbursement for the services  of  a  skilled   operator  shall  be  credited  to  the  fund  from  which  his  compensation was paid. If  a  town  shall  use  its  own  machinery  and  equipment  in  the  performance of any work under this article, it shall  charge therefor, as a project  cost,  the  hourly  rates  fixed  by  the  commissioner  and  the moneys received therefor shall be credited in the  manner hereinabove provided.
