Section 11-81-173

Issuance of additional bonds; payment of same.

(a) Any borrower acquiring, improving, enlarging, extending or repairing any such system or combined system pursuant to the provisions of this article, may, in the event that the proceeds of any issue of revenue bonds by error of calculation or otherwise shall be less than the amount required for the purpose or purposes for which the same shall be authorized, issue additional bonds under the provisions of this article to provide the amount of such deficit or, in the event that later extensions and permanent improvements to such system or combined system appear to be desirable, issue from time to time additional bonds under the provisions of this article to provide funds for such purposes.

(b) If such additional bonds are issued for the purpose of providing funds necessary to supply any such deficit, they shall, unless otherwise provided in the ordinance authorizing the original issue of bonds or in any trust indenture thereby authorized, be deemed to be of the same issue and to be entitled to payment from the same fund without preference or priority of the bonds first issued. If, however, such bonds are issued to provide funds for the acquisition of other extensions or permanent improvements, such bonds shall be deemed to be of the same issue and shall be entitled to payment from the same fund without preference or priority of the bonds first issued only in the event that it shall be specifically so provided in the ordinance authorizing the original issue of bonds or in any trust indenture thereby authorized.
