18A:24-79. Net debt of board of education; calculation; net debt of municipality
For the purposes of calculating or stating local debt or school debt, or for any debt statement or supplemental debt statement, or for the application of any limitation on the issuance of bonds by a board of education or municipality, or any other similar purpose under any applicable law now or hereafter enacted, the net debt of any board of education on bonds issued hereunder shall be the aggregate amount of the principal and accrued interest of issued and outstanding bonds, less the amount of the reserve funds and sinking funds held pursuant to this act and the earnings thereof, as of the date of the calculation. At the option of the issuing board, the calculation of net debt may be made in the same manner as provided in section 8 of this act, ^1^ except that accrued interest shall be included in the calculation. No municipal guaranty of any bonds issued hereunder shall be taken into account in determining its bonded indebtedness or in calculating any debt limit or for any other purpose stated in this section in respect to such municipality, unless the municipality shall have been called upon to perform its guaranty, and then only to the extent of such call and to the extent that the same has not been satisfied. However, the existence of the guaranty shall be disclosed in any case.
