Notice of such redemption shall be published once a week for three successive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation printed and published within the district or if there is no such newspaper printed and published within the district then the publication shall be made in a newspaper of general circulation printed and published within the county in which the district or any part thereof is situated, the first publication of which shall be at least 30 days prior to the date fixed for the redemption.

All signatures and countersignatures, except that of the treasurer on the bonds, may be printed, lithographed, or engraved. If any officer whose signature or countersignature appears on the bonds or coupons ceases to be such officer before the delivery of the bonds to the purchaser, the signature or countersignature is nevertheless valid and sufficient for all purposes as if he had remained in office until the delivery of the bonds.
