74870.
  

The bonds as issued may be sold at such times and in such amounts as the board deems expedient, after a notice inviting bids therefor has been published in the district pursuant to Section 6062 of the Government Code. A certified check payable to the district for at least 2 percent of the amount of the bonds offered shall accompany each bid, conditioned that the bidder will accept and pay for the bonds bid for if awarded to him, otherwise such check shall be forfeited to the district and the amount thereof paid into the treasury. If no bids are received the bonds offered may be sold at private sale.

(Amended by Stats. 1971, Ch. 359.)

The proceeds from the sale of bonds shall be paid into the treasury of the district, placed to the credit of a special fund, and expended only for the purpose for which the indebtedness was created.

(Added by Stats. 1965, Ch. 75.)

74872.
  

If the board determines by resolution that (1) the expenditure of money raised by the sale of bonds for the purpose for which the bonds were voted is impracticable or unwise, or (2) that all of the purposes for which money raised by the sale of bonds have been fulfilled but that there is a surplus of such money remaining, the board may call a special election to obtain the consent of the voters to use the money for some other purpose for which the district may issue bonds.

The procedure shall be the same as when the bond proposition was originally submitted and the election may be consolidated with any other election, in which case one ballot may be used in the discretion of the board.
