If a general obligation bond issue is contemplated, there shall be included in the estimate required by Section 35950 every expense of the district that it is probable will be incurred and become payable before the expiration of one year from the completion of the irrigation works, including the interest on any bonds of the district due and payable prior to that date, for which the money of the district then in the treasury or thereafter to be received from an assessment previously levied is inadequate.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 390.)


In addition to any and all other provisions of this division and any other applicable laws for the issuance of general obligation bonds by a district, general obligation bonds may be issued by a district if the proceeds are to be used to construct facilities in compliance with an order adopted by the State Department of Health Services pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 116275) of Part 12 of Division 104 of the Health and Safety Code. Bonds issued pursuant to this section shall be issued by a district as otherwise provided in this division without regard to the election procedures of Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 35150) of Part 4 and shall be secured by unlimited ad valorem assessments on land in the district without regard to any limitations set forth in Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 2201) of Part 4 of Division 1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. If 50 percent or more of the voters within the district or if the owners of 50 percent or more of the assessed valuation within the district submit written protests to the district secretary within the 30 days after the date the board adopts the resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds, the proceedings for the issuance of bonds pursuant to this section shall be terminated and no further proceedings shall be taken pursuant to this section for a period of at least one year.
