If the revenues of the district are inadequate to pay the interest or principal of the bonded indebtedness of the district as it becomes due, or to pay any other expenses of or claims against the district, the board of directors shall transmit to the board of supervisors and the county auditor a written estimate of the minimum amount of money required for the payment of the principal and interest of the bonded indebtedness as it becomes due, and of the minimum amount of money required by the district for any other purpose.

Annually, after receiving the estimates, the board of supervisors shall levy a tax sufficient for the payment of the principal and interest on the bonded indebtedness, designated as the “____ airport bond tax,” and a tax sufficient for the payment of all other expenses of, and claims against, the district, designated as the “____ airport district tax.”

The bond tax shall be sufficient to pay the interest on the bonds for the year and the portion of the principal becoming due during the year. The bond tax shall also be sufficient to raise annually for the first half of the term of the bonds a sum sufficient to pay the interest for that period, and, during the balance of the term, sufficient to pay the annual interest and to pay annually a proportion of the principal equal to the amount produced by dividing the total amount of outstanding bonds by the number of years the bonds then have to run.

22906.
  

The proceeds of the bond tax shall be paid into the treasury of the principal county to the credit of the district interest and sinking fund and shall be used only for the payment of the principal and interest on the bonds. The treasurer of the principal county shall pay the principal and interest on the bonds upon the warrant of the auditor of the principal county out of this fund. The county auditor shall cancel and retain the bonds and coupons when he draws his warrants on the treasurer in favor of the owners.

The bond and district taxes shall be levied on all the taxable property in the district. They shall be levied by the board of supervisors and collected by the tax collector of the principal county at the time and in the manner and form as county taxes are levied and collected. The proceeds of the taxes shall be paid to the district. The taxes become delinquent at the same time as county taxes and bear the same penalties for delinquency. The taxes are a lien on all taxable property in the district, have the same force and effect as liens for county taxes, and their collection shall be enforced by the same means as liens for county taxes.

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