Section 11-58-10

Refunding bonds.

Any bonds issued by a corporation organized under this chapter and at any time outstanding may at any time and from time to time be refunded by the corporation by the issuance of its refunding bonds in such amount as the board of directors may deem necessary but not exceeding the principal amount of the bonds to be refunded, any expenses estimated to be incurred in connection with such refunding and interest (accrued or to accrue) to the respective maturities of the bonds to be refunded or, if the bonds to be refunded are to be called for redemption, either on the earliest date on which under their terms they may be redeemed or some other date or dates, the interest (accrued or to accrue) on the bonds to be refunded to the date or dates on which they are to be called for redemption plus the amount of any redemption premium required by their terms to be paid as a condition to their redemption prior to their respective maturities.

Any such refunding may be effected whether the bonds to be refunded shall have then matured or shall thereafter mature, either by sale of the refunding bonds and the application of the proceeds thereof for the payment of the bonds to be refunded thereby or by exchange of the refunding bonds for the bonds to be refunded thereby; provided, that the holders of any bonds so to be refunded shall not be compelled without their consent to surrender their bonds for payment or exchange prior to the date on which they are payable or, if they are called for redemption, prior to the date on which they are by their terms subject to redemption.

Any refunding bonds issued by a corporation organized under the authority of this chapter shall be subject to the provisions contained in Section 11-58-7 and may be secured in accordance with the provisions of Section 11-58-8.
