  ( Article 3 added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151. )


If two-thirds of the votes cast at the election were for the issuance of bonds, the board shall enter that fact in its minutes. The board shall certify all of the board proceedings to the board of supervisors.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The board of supervisors shall issue the district bonds in the number and amount specified in the bond proceedings. The board of supervisors shall provide that the bonds are payable out of the interest and sinking fund of the district, naming the fund, and that the money for redemption of the bonds and payment of the interest shall be raised by taxation upon the taxable property in the district.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


By an order entered in its minutes, the board of supervisors shall:

(a) Prescribe the form of the bonds and of the interest coupons.

(b) The manner in which the bonds shall be executed.

(c) Fix the time when all or any part of the principal of the bonds is payable.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The total amount of bonds issued shall not exceed 15 percent of the taxable property of the district as shown by the last equalized assessment books of the affected counties.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The term of the bonds shall not exceed 40 years.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The bonds shall be payable in lawful money of the United States as to principal and interest.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The board of supervisors may make the principal and interest of the bonds payable at the office of the treasurer of the principal county, at such other place within the United States as the board may designate, or at the county treasurer’s office or such other designated place at the option of the bondholders. The place of payment shall be specified in the bonds. The expense of paying the principal and interest other than at the office of the county is a charge against the district funds, to be paid out of the tax for the payment of the bonds.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The bonds shall be sold at the times and in the amounts prescribed by the board of supervisors, but for not less than par.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


Before selling all or any part of the bonds, the board of supervisors shall advertise for bids pursuant to Section 6066 of the Government Code in a newspaper of general circulation published in the principal county, or if no such newspaper is published in the county, in some newspaper published in another county.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 357.)


If satisfactory bids are received the bonds offered for sale shall be awarded to the highest bidder. If no bids are received or the board of supervisors determines that the bids received are not satisfactory as to price or responsibility of the bidders, the board of supervisors may reject all bids received and either re-advertise or sell the bonds at private sale.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 151.)


The proceeds of the sale of the bonds shall be deposited in the treasury of the principal county to the credit of the improvement fund of the district, and may be withdrawn for the purposes for which the bonds were voted as other district money is withdrawn.
