CHAPTER 16. Disposition and Maintenance of Adequate District Revenues [27300 - 27305]
  ( Chapter 16 added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 286. )


The board may in each fiscal year set aside in separate funds out of the revenues of the works a sufficient sum to:

(a) First, pay the operating expenses of the district.

(b) Second, provide for repairs and maintenance of the works owned or operated by the district, including any payments to be made into a replacement fund for buses and ferries.

(c) Third, provide for the purchase, lease, or other acquisition of district equipment, supplies, and other properties, including provision for interest, sinking funds, reserve funds, or other funds required for the payment of any obligations incurred by the district for the acquisition of such properties.

(d) Fourth, pay any indebtedness or lien that may exist against the district or any of its property or revenues.

The revenues of the works are hereby pledged to the aforesaid purposes.

(Amended by Stats. 1972, Ch. 1381.)


For the purpose of paying the principal or interest of bonds due or to become due within four months, and not otherwise adequately provided for, the district may borrow money in anticipation of the receipt of either the revenues and taxes of the fiscal year in which the loan is made or the revenues and taxes of the next succeeding fiscal year. The money borrowed shall be payable not later than the end of such next succeeding fiscal year.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 286.)


After the completion of construction of the works, the board shall, in the month of July in each year, cause a tax to be levied and collected in the manner provided in Chapter 11 of this part. The amount of such tax, after deducting any available and applicable moneys on hand (exclusive of moneys in the reserve interest fund) and the estimated amount of revenues of the works for the ensuing 12 months, which estimated amount shall not exceed the actual revenues for the preceding 12 months or, if the works have not been in operation for as long as 12 months, not to exceed an amount computed on the basis of the average daily revenues for the lesser period, shall be sufficient to produce the sums required to be set aside into separate funds by Section 27300, as well as any deficit in such funds and the principal and interest of any outstanding revenue and tax anticipation notes.

(Added by Stats. 1943, Ch. 286.)


The taxes required to be levied and collected under this chapter shall be in addition to all other taxes levied for county purposes, and all taxable property of the district shall be and remain liable to be taxed as provided in this chapter until the entire principal and interest of the bonded indebtedness of the district has been paid in full.
