2. Issue refunding bonds if the board deems refunding expedient. The board may provide for investing and holding the proceeds of the refunding bonds in trust for the benefit of the holders of the bonds being refunded.

3. Refund any bonds issued by the district if the bonds are secured from the same source of revenues as the bonds authorized in this article by issuing new bonds, whether the bonds to be refunded have or have not matured.

4. Issue bonds partly to refund outstanding bonds and partly for any water replenishment purpose consistent with this article.

B. The board shall authorize the bonds by resolution. The resolution shall prescribe:

D. The bonds shall be sold at public or private sale at the price and on the terms as the board determines. Bonds to fund or refund other bonds may be either sold or exchanged with the holders of bonds being funded or refunded on terms the board determines. All proceeds from issuing the bonds shall be deposited in the bond fund.

E. The board, out of any available monies, may purchase bonds, which may thereupon be canceled, at a price not exceeding the following:
