Section 16-19-3 - Issuance of warrants authorized.

Each local subdivision shall have the power from time to time to sell and issue interest-bearing warrants of such local subdivision for the purpose of raising funds to pay all or any part of the costs of the acquisition by a state educational institution, by construction or otherwise, of any educational facility. Such warrants shall be in such denomination or denominations, may have such maturity or maturities not exceeding 30 years from their date, may bear interest from their date at such rate or rates not exceeding eight percent per annum payable semiannually and evidenced in such manner, may be payable at such place or places within or without the state, may be sold at such time or times and in such manner, may be executed in such manner and may contain such terms and provisions not inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter, all as the governing body of such local subdivision may provide in the proceedings under which the warrants are authorized to be issued. Such warrants may be issued, at the option of the governing body of the local subdivision issuing such warrants, either:

(1) As general obligations of the local subdivision by which they are issued, in which event the full faith and credit of such local subdivision shall be irrevocably pledged for the payment of the principal thereof and interest thereon; or

(2) As limited obligations of such local subdivision payable solely out of the proceeds of a special tax, in which event they shall not be general obligations of the local subdivision by which they are issued and its full faith and credit shall not be pledged therefor.

The proceeds derived from the sale of any such warrants shall be used solely for the purpose for which they are authorized in said proceedings to be issued.
