§ 31-25-809. Authorization of bonds
(1) By ordinance adopted by the governing body at a regular or special meeting, by a vote of a majority of the members of the governing body, the municipality may issue bonds, payable solely from revenues or from taxes pledged pursuant to section 31-25-807 (3) (b) or from both such revenues and taxes, to pay all or any part of the cost of any project or for furthering any purpose of this part 8.
(2) The governing body, in determining such costs, may include all costs and estimated costs of the issuance of said bonds; all engineering, inspection, fiscal, and legal expenses; any discount on the sale of the bonds; the cost of any financial, professional, or other expert advice; contingencies; any administrative, operating, or other expenses of the municipality incurred pursuant to the issuance of such bonds, as may be determined by the governing body; all such other expenses as may be necessary or incident to the financing, acquisition, improvement, equipment, and completion of any development project or for furthering any purpose of this part 8; sufficient provision of reserves for working capital, operation, or maintenance or replacement expense or for payment or security of principal of or interest on any bonds during or after an acquisition or improvement and equipment as the governing body may determine; and reimbursements to any governmental agency or instrumentality for any moneys expended pursuant to agreement on any project or for furthering any purpose of this part 8.
(3) In each such project financed by the proceeds of bonds issued under this part 8, the governing body shall determine the costs of, and may budget a percentage therefrom for, operation and administration of the total cost of the actual project.

(b) Convey title to such properties to the authority for such consideration and subject to such terms and conditions as the governing body may prescribe without regard to any restriction, limitation, or condition otherwise imposed by statute on the sale or disposition of such properties by a municipality.
