4. The maximum numbers of years for which the bonds may be outstanding.

5. The maximum rate of interest to be paid.

6. The date of the election.

7. The election precincts and polling places.

B. The resolution shall be published once each week for three successive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the district.

C. If the proposition of issuing bonds fails to receive a majority of the votes cast at the election to authorize issuance of the bonds, the board of directors, not less than six months after that election, may call another election on the question of issuing bonds under the terms of this article, either for the same purposes or for any lawful purpose of the district.

D. No bond election shall take place until the board of directors has demonstrated to the department that contractual arrangements have been made for staff and a coordinating medical provider, as defined in section 36-2351, and the department has certified to the board of directors and to the organizing board that the above arrangements are sufficient to ensure that ambulatory care services will be available to the district for a period of at least one year of medical clinic operation.
