Section 11-59-9

Bonds - Form, terms, denominations, etc.; execution, sale, delivery, redemption, etc.; refunding of bonds.

All bonds issued by the corporation shall be revenue bonds and shall be payable solely out of the revenues derived from the leasing or operation by the corporation of its facilities or of any thereof as may be designated in the proceedings of the board of directors under which they shall be authorized to be issued.

Such bonds may be executed and delivered by the corporation at any time and from time to time, may be in such form and denominations and of such tenor and maturities, may be in registered or bearer form either as to principal or interest or both, may be payable in such installments and at such time or times, not exceeding 40 years from the date thereof, may be payable at such place or places whether within or without the State of Alabama, may bear interest at such rate or rates payable at such time or times and at such place or places and evidenced in such manner, may be executed by such officers of the corporation and in such manner and may contain such provisions not inconsistent with this chapter as shall be provided in the proceedings of the board of directors whereunder such bonds shall be authorized to be issued. If such action shall be deemed advisable by the board of directors, there may be retained in the proceedings under which any of such bonds are authorized to be issued an option to redeem all or any part thereof as may be specified in such proceedings, at such price or prices and after such notice or notices and on such terms and conditions as may be set forth in such proceedings and as may be briefly recited in the face of such bonds, but nothing contained in this section shall be construed to confer on the corporation any right or option to redeem any such bonds except as may be provided in the proceedings under which they shall be issued.

Any bonds of the corporation may be sold at public or private sale in such manner and from time to time as may be determined by the board of directors of the corporation to be most advantageous, and the corporation may pay all expenses, premiums and commissions which its board of directors may deem necessary and advantageous in connection with the issuance thereof.

Issuance by the corporation of one or more series of bonds for one or more purposes shall not preclude it from issuing other bonds for the same purpose or any other purpose for which the corporation is formed as specified in its certificate of incorporation or any amendment thereof.

Any bonds of the corporation at any time outstanding may at any time and from time to time be refunded by the corporation by the issuance of its refunding revenue bonds of a like aggregate principal amount of the bonds so to be refunded, whether the bonds to be refunded shall have then matured or shall thereafter mature, either by sale of such refunding bonds and the application of the proceeds thereof for the payment of the bonds to be refunded thereby or by the exchange of such refunding bonds for the bonds to be refunded thereby with the consent of the holders of the bonds so to be refunded and regardless of whether or not the bonds to be refunded were issued in connection with the same facility or separate facilities and regardless of whether or not the bonds proposed to be refunded shall be payable on the same date or different dates or shall be due serially or otherwise.

All such bonds and the interest coupons applicable thereto shall be construed to be negotiable instruments.
