(1) When, after an election called under ORS 545.511, the board considers it to be for the best interests of the district that the question of the issuance of bonds, or the question of a contract in any amount with the United States or the State of Oregon shall be submitted to the electors, the board shall so declare in its minutes, and may then submit the questions to the electors in the same manner and with the same effect as at the previous election. However, an irrigation district may, without a vote of its electorate, enter into a contract with the United States or the State of Oregon which does not create or increase a construction charge indebtedness and which, in the judgment of the district board, is for the best interest of the district.
(2) A district may, without a vote of the district electorate, enter into a contract with the United States or the State of Oregon for a loan in an amount that does not exceed the greater of $25,000 or one-third of the average annual operations and maintenance budget of the district for the three most recent years.
(3) If an emergency requires immediate repairs to the district delivery system to permit normal operation, the district may borrow moneys necessary for the repairs without a vote by the district electorate.
