Section 11-50-101

Issuance, etc., of bonds by municipalities having less than six thousand inhabitants.

Any city or town having a population of less than 6,000 inhabitants may, notwithstanding the amount or character of any bonded or other indebtedness, issue such bonds, but the same shall be a lien or charge only against the property improved and drained and against the fund collected from the assessments levied against the property improved and drained and shall not be the general obligation of the city or town, nor shall such city or town be in any way liable to the holders of such bonds in case of failure to collect the same, but such bonds may be secured by mortgage on or deed of trust to said sewers or sewer system.

Such last described bonds, when issued, shall convey and transfer to the owners thereof all right, title, and interest in and to the assessment and the lien upon the respective lots or parcels of ground provided for in this division, which liens and assessments shall stand as security for such bonds and coupons until they are paid, with full power in the holder of said bonds or coupons to enforce the collection thereof by foreclosure action in any court of competent jurisdiction. The first bond or coupon holder who institutes a foreclosure action in any court against any property assessed shall only be entitled to have the proceeds of said suit applied pro rata to the payment of his own bonds and the bonds held by others so that no more than one foreclosure action shall be brought against any one lot or parcel of land.
