Bonds for refunding or funding of bonds outstanding - Security.

Where the indebtedness to be funded or refunded is secured in whole or in part by a lien, mortgage, or deed of trust upon any property belonging to the municipality or by a pledge, assignment, or appropriation of certain revenues or resources of the municipality, such municipality may make a new lien, mortgage, or deed of trust upon such property or a new pledge, assignment, or appropriation of such revenues or resources to secure the payment of the principal and interest of such funding or refunding bonds, subject, however, to any valid prior liens, mortgages, deeds of trust, pledges, assignments and appropriations.
