ARTICLE 7.5. Short-Term Borrowing [13631 - 13633]
  ( Article 7.5 added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 310. )


The special district may borrow money and incur indebtedness in anticipation of the sale of bonds which have been authorized to be issued by the voters within the special district but which have not been sold and delivered, and it may issue bonds, notes, or other securities as provided in this article by action of the board and without the necessity of calling and holding an election. Such evidences of indebtedness shall constitute general obligations of the district. The indebtedness may be incurred for any of the purposes for which a bond issue had previously been approved by the voters, and to reimburse the district for expenditures incurred for any of such purposes. The indebtedness incurred under this article shall be evidenced by bonds, notes or other evidences of indebtedness maturing in not to exceed five years from their date, shall bear interest at such rate or rates as may be fixed by the board, and may be issued and sold at public sale as the board may direct. All other terms and conditions of such evidences of indebtedness shall be fixed by the board. The maximum principal amount of all indebtedness outstanding under this article shall not at any time exceed the aggregate amount of bonds which the district is then authorized to issue, less the amount of other securities then outstanding issued in anticipation of the sale of such an authorized issue.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 310.)


The special district may issue refunding bonds, notes, or other securities for the purpose of paying and redeeming at or before maturity any bonds, notes or other securities issued under this article, provided that such refunding bonds, notes, or other securities shall not be in excess of the limitation of indebtedness authorized under this article and shall mature in not to exceed five years from their date.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 310.)


Evidences of indebtedness issued pursuant to this article shall be payable from any sources of available funds of the special district, including revenues, taxes, or state or federal grants. If not previously otherwise paid the evidence of indebtedness 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 not so paid, the board is hereby authorized to levy and collect taxes from all property in the special district subject to taxation by the district without limitation of rate or amount for the payment of such evidences of indebtedness. Such taxes shall be in addition to all other taxes levied for special district purposes and shall be levied at the same time and in the same manner as other district taxes are levied and when collected shall be deposited in a special fund and shall be used for no purpose other than the payment of the principal of, and interest on, such indebtedness.
