The district may borrow money for the purpose of defraying general administrative and preliminary expenses of the district, lawfully incurred, prior to the time moneys to be raised by the first tax levy for the district are available, a sum which shall not exceed five cents ($0.05) on each one hundred dollars ($100) of assessed valuation of taxable property in the district at the time the moneys are borrowed, and to evidence such borrowing by notes bearing interest at a rate not to exceed 7 percent per annum. The notes shall be payable from the first tax levy made by the district, and the tax levy shall contain a sum sufficient to provide for the payment of the notes and the interest thereon. The form of the notes, and their issuance and sale, shall be governed by the applicable provisions referred to in Section 103583.

(Added by Stats. 1974, Ch. 502.)


At any time prior to the first receipt by the district of revenues from taxation, the county may lend any available money to the district for the purposes of organization and operation. Such expenditures shall constitute a proper expenditure of county funds. Such loans may bear interest.

(Added by Stats. 1974, Ch. 502.)


The district may borrow money in accordance with the provisions of Article 7 (commencing with Section 53820), or of Article 7.6 (commencing with Section 53850), of Chapter 4, Part 1, Division 2, Title 5 of the Government Code.

(Added by Stats. 1974, Ch. 502.)


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 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 may be paid from any moneys of the district available therefor and not otherwise pledged. If not previously otherwise 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 not so paid, taxes may be levied for their payment in the same manner as taxes are levied for the payment of general obligation bonds pursuant to Article 9 (commencing with Section 103340) of Chapter 5 until such bonds are issued. Such notes shall not be issued in any amount in excess of the aggregate amount of bonds which the district has been authorized to issue, less the amount of any bonds of such authorized issue previously sold, and also less the amount of other bond anticipation notes therefor issued and then outstanding. The notes shall be issued and sold in the same manner as the bonds. Such notes and the resolution or resolutions authorizing the same may contain any provisions, conditions, or limitations which a resolution of the district authorizing the issuance of bonds may contain.
