40A:2-35. Conversion, reconversion and reissuance of bonds
Unmatured bonds heretofore or hereafter issued by a local unit under this chapter or any other law, and containing provisions for registration, conversion or reconversion, or issued as bonds in registered form or coupon form without any of such provisions, shall be registered, converted, reconverted or replaced as herein provided at the written request and expense of the holder of bonds in bearer form or of the registered owner or his authorized attorney or legal representative.
Coupon bonds shall be registered as to both principal and interest by removing and canceling all unmatured coupons and by executing conversion certificates written or stamped on the bonds. Coupon bonds converted into bonds registered as to both principal and interest shall be reconverted into bonds in coupon form by the registration of such bonds to bearer, or the preparation and substitution of new bonds bearing the same rate of interest and of the same tenor as the original bonds, and by attaching to such bonds new coupons for the unmatured interest of the same form and tenor as those originally authorized. Any such bonds may be again converted or reconverted from time to time.
Fully registered bonds shall be converted into bonds in coupon form of the same or different denominations by preparation and substitution of new bonds with all privileges of registration, conversion and reconversion, and bearing the same rate of interest and being otherwise of the same tenor as the original bonds.
Any conversion or reconversion of fully registered bonds shall be pursuant to resolution of the governing body, which shall set forth the written request of the registered owner or his authorized attorney or legal representative, and the date, maturities, interest rate, denomination and numbers of the old and the new bonds. Any new bonds issued hereunder shall be signed by such officers in office at the time of such conversion or reconversion, or the authorization thereof, and any new coupons shall be authenticated by the facsimile signature of such present or former financial officer as the governing body may designate.
The governing body, by resolution, may authorize a new coupon bond to replace any outstanding bond prior to its maturity. The new bond shall be of substantially the same form and tenor as the outstanding bond, except that (1) the new bond may be a bond payable to bearer with 2 or more coupons attached for the payment to the several bearers thereof of a portion of each installment of the interest to become due thereon at or prior to the maturity thereof, (2) the rate or rates of interest on the new bond and the aggregate amount of any installment of interest to become due thereon at or prior to maturity thereof may be less than such rate and aggregate amount, respectively, with regard to the outstanding bond, and (3) the new bond shall be signed by such officers in office at the time such new bond is issued or is authorized to be issued, and the new coupons shall bear the facsimile signature of such present or former financial officer as the governing body may designate, and (4) the new bond may be made registerable as to principal only, or as to both principal and all interest payable thereon, or as to both principal and interest represented by any particular coupon or coupons. There shall be endorsed on the new bond substantially the following statement: "This bond has been revised as to form and reissued as of the day of , 19 " , in which statement shall be inserted the date of issuance of the new bond or any earlier date not previous to the last preceding date of payment of interest on the outstanding bond. A new bond shall not be issued unless the outstanding bond shall be presented and surrendered with a written request for its reissuance. Upon effecting the issuance of any new bond, the officer effecting the same shall execute and file a certificate identifying the bond in the office of the clerk.
