Section 11-81-144

Form, terms, denominations, etc., of bonds; maturity and sale; execution and delivery; issuance of revenue refunding bonds.

(a) Revenue anticipation bonds may be issued under this division in one or more series, may bear such date or dates, may be payable in such medium of payment, at such place or places, may carry such registration privileges, may be executed in such manner, may contain such terms, covenants and conditions, and may be in such form, either coupon or registered, as may be specified in the resolution or resolutions providing for their issuance.

(b) Such bonds shall mature in the manner provided for the maturity of revenue bonds in Section 11-81-6 and shall be sold as provided in Sections 11-81-10 through 11-81-12; provided, that if the proceedings authorizing the issuance of any revenue anticipation bonds under this division shall recite that the undertaking with respect to which such bonds are to be issued is then leased by the municipality or county to an agency or department of the State of Alabama or is to be so leased by an agreement of lease to be delivered simultaneously with the issuance of said bonds, then the said bonds may, at the option of the municipality or county, be sold without compliance with the requirements of subsection (a) of said Section 11-81-11. All bonds and coupons attached thereto issued under this division bearing the signatures of officers in office on the date of the signing thereof shall be valid and binding obligations notwithstanding that before the delivery and payment thereof such officers whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to be officers of the municipality or county issuing the same. Pending the preparation of the definitive bonds, interim receipts or certificates, in such form and with such provisions as the governing body may determine, may be issued to the purchaser or purchasers of bonds to be issued under this division. Said bonds and interim receipts or certificates shall be fully negotiable within the meaning of and for all the purposes of the applicable provisions of Title 7 and Title 8.

(c) Where a municipality or county shall have outstanding any bonds issued under the provisions of this division, it may thereafter issue and negotiate new bonds on such terms as the governing body shall deem advisable for the purpose of providing for the payment of any such outstanding bonds, including any premium necessary to redeem or retire such outstanding bonds. Such new bonds shall be designated "revenue refunding bonds" and, except as provided in this subsection, shall be secured to the same extent and shall have the same sources of payment as the bonds which shall have been thereby refunded. The issuance of any revenue refunding bonds under the provisions of this subsection shall be subject to the applicable provisions respecting refunding bonds contained in Sections 11-81-6 and 11-81-10 through 11-81-12; provided, that if the proceedings authorizing the issuance of any revenue refunding bonds under this division shall recite that the undertaking with respect to which such revenue refunding bonds are to be issued is then leased by the municipality or county to an agency or department of the State of Alabama or is to be so leased by an agreement of lease to be delivered simultaneously with the issuance of said revenue refunding bonds, then the said revenue refunding bonds may, at the option of the municipality or county, be sold without compliance with the requirements of subsection (a) of said Section 11-81-11.
