The legal voters, at any election held for the purpose of raising money by issuance of bonds, shall vote by ballot on the question. The election shall be conducted in the same manner as other fire district elections.
If a majority of the legal voters voting on the question favor the issuance of such bonds the board of fire commissioners shall be authorized to issue them.
Said bonds shall be serial bonds issued in the corporate name of the fire district, in the authorized amount, not exceeding in the aggregate $60,000.00 or 2% of the assessed valuation of the taxable property of the district, whichever amount is larger. They shall be in the amounts and payable at the time directed, with interest at any rate of interest that the fire commissioners may approve and which shall be payable semi-annually. The bonds shall not be issued for longer than a 30-year period. They shall be signed by the manual or facsimile signature of the chairman of the board of fire commissioners and attested by the manual or facsimile signature of the clerk, and may be attested by a registrar or authenticating agent. The bonds shall be coupon bonds or registered bonds and shall be issued at such price or prices, not less than par, as the board of fire commissioners shall determine. The bonds shall be sold at public or private sale for the best obtainable price.
