Issuance of general obligation bonds and revenue bonds
(1)In the name of the subdistrict and not otherwise, when authorized by the plan of organization and decree of court organizing said subdistrict to do so, the district may issue general obligations or bonds which shall constitute a lien against the real property in said subdistrict. Said obligations shall bear interest at a rate such that the net effective interest rate of the issue does not exceed the maximum net effective interest rate authorized. Interest shall be payable semiannually, and said obligations may be issued and made payable in series becoming due not less than five years and not more than fifty years after the date of issue. Such bonds are to be paid from assessments levied from time to time, as the bonds and interest thereon become due, against the real property in said district and not otherwise. The board of directors of said district shall certify to the boards of county commissioners of the several counties in which said subdistrict or any part thereof is located the amount of the levy necessary to pay said bonds as they mature, and also to pay the interest becoming due on all outstanding bonds, at the same time that like certificates are made under this article for assessments on special improvement district bonds, and the procedure for the assessment and collection of revenue or taxes of the county and state are, except as may be otherwise provided in this article, made applicable and are to be followed in the levy of assessments for payment of taxes and collection of principal and interest on such general obligations.
(2)The subdistrict, in its own name, may issue revenue bonds to finance, in whole or in part, the construction of works, reservoirs, or other improvements for the beneficial use of water for the purposes for which it has been or may be appropriated, whether or not the interest on such bonds may be subject to taxation. Such revenue bonds shall be issued in such denominations and with such maximum net effective interest rate as may be fixed by the board of directors of the subdistrict and shall bear interest such that the net effective interest rate of the bonds does not exceed the maximum net effective interest rate authorized. The board shall pledge only rental proceeds, service charges, and other income (or any combination thereof) from such works or other improvements, and the subdistrict shall not be otherwise obligated for the payment thereof. At the time said revenue bonds are issued, the board of directors of the subdistrict shall make and enter in the minutes of the proceeding a resolution in which the due dates of such revenue bonds, the rates of interest thereon, the general provisions of the bonds, and a recital that the same are payable only out of rental proceeds, service charges, and other income (or any combination thereof) are set forth. In addition, the board of directors shall require the payment of rental charges, service charges, or other charges by the political subdivisions or persons who are to use or derive benefits from the water or other services furnished by such works or improvements. Such charges shall be sufficient to pay operation and maintenance expenses thereof, to meet said bond payments, and to accumulate and maintain reserve and replacement accounts pertaining thereto as set forth in such resolution. Such resolution shall be irrepealable during the time that any of the revenue bonds are outstanding and unpaid. The revenue bonds shall be signed “Water Users’ Association No. ... in the Southwestern Water Conservation District, By ............, President. Attest ..........., Secretary” or “Special Improvement District No. .... in the Southwestern Water Conservation District, By ........., President. Attest ............, Secretary”, and they shall be countersigned by the treasurer.
