Whenever the board deems it necessary for the district to incur a bonded indebtedness for the acquisition, construction, completion, or repair of any or all improvements, works, or property mentioned in this division, the board shall, by resolution, so declare and call an election to be held in the district for the purpose of submitting to the voters thereof the proposition of incurring indebtedness by the issuance of the bonds of the district pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.

(c) The full amount of the authorized bonds may be divided into two or more series and different dates fixed for the bonds of each series. The maximum term, which the bonds of any series shall run before maturity shall not exceed 40 years from the date of the series.

(d) The bonds shall bear interest at a rate or rates not to exceed 8 percent per year, payable semiannually, except that interest for the first year may be payable at the end of that year.

(e) The measure to be submitted to the voters, which measure shall state that the bonds are to be issued and paid for in the manner set forth in this chapter and in the resolution calling the bond election.

(f) The principal of, or interest on, the bonded debt shall be paid from taxes levied and collected in the entire district as provided in Part 9 (commencing with Section 72090) of this division, except to the extent revenues of the district, or revenues raised by the alternative methods provided by this chapter in the improvement districts established pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 72065) of this chapter are sufficient to pay the amount of such principal and interest that will become due before the proceeds of a tax levied at the next general tax levy will be available.

(h) The designation of precincts and the location of polling places.

(Amended by Stats. 1975, Ch. 291.)


If, from the bond election returns, it appears that more than one-half of the votes cast in such election were in favor of, and assented to, the incurring of the indebtedness, the board may, by resolution, at such time or times as it deems proper, issue bonds of the district for the whole or any part of the amount of the indebtedness so authorized, and may from time to time provide for the issuance of such amounts as the necessity therefor may appear, until the full amount of such bonds authorized has been issued.

(Added by Stats. 1974, Ch. 791.)


Except as provided otherwise herein, such election, issuance, and sale of bonds shall be governed by the provisions of this division.
