Prior to the time moneys authorized by special taxes under Part 16 (commencing with Section 36000) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code and already levied by the county are available or funds are allocated to the district under said part or other state or federal laws, the district may borrow money to provide funds for the purposes provided in Section 30636 of this code, and for the expenses of the calling, giving notice of, holding and conducting of any bond election under this part.

The amount to be borrowed pursuant to this section shall be evidenced by notes bearing interest at a rate of not to exceed 6 percent per annum, payable annually or semiannually, maturing not more than two years from their date and subject to call and redemption at the option of the district at any time prior to their stated maturity dates on the terms and conditions specified by the board and stated in the notes. The amount to be borrowed pursuant to this section (including both the principal of and interest to maturity on the notes evidencing such borrowing) shall not exceed eighty-five percent (85%) of the special tax or said other moneys to be used to repay said notes and interest thereon and to be received by the district between the date of borrowing and the final maturity date of the notes, as estimated by the auditor at the time of the borrowing. The notes shall be payable only from special taxes authorized under Part 16 (commencing with Section 36000) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code and already levied by the county, or from other moneys allocated under state laws other than this part, or federal laws.

The district may borrow money in anticipation of the sale of bonds which have been authorized to be issued, but which have not been sold and delivered, and may issue negotiable bond anticipation notes therefor for the same purposes and may renew the same from time to time, but the maximum maturity of any such notes, including the renewals thereof, shall not exceed five years from the date of delivery of such original notes. Such notes shall be paid from any moneys of the district from which said bonds would be payable. If not so paid the notes shall be paid from the proceeds of the next sale of the bonds of the district in anticipation of which they were issued, and if said bonds are not issued, then taxes may be levied for their payment in the same manner as taxes are levied for said bonds. Such notes shall not be issued in an amount in excess of the aggregate amount of authorized bonds of the district remaining, less the amount of bond anticipation notes outstanding. Such notes shall be in such form as the board of directors of the district may select and may include any applicable provisions of the bonds in anticipation of which they were issued. The notes may be sold as the board of directors of the district determines by resolution but not for less than par. Before selling the notes or any part thereof the board of directors shall give notice inviting sealed bids in such manner as it may prescribe. If satisfactory bids are received the notes offered for sale shall be awarded to the highest responsible bidder. If no bids are received or if the board of directors determines that the bids received are not satisfactory as to price or responsibility of the bidders, the board of directors may reject all bids received, if any, and readvertise for sealed bids.
