(1) Refunding bonds shall have all the qualities of negotiable paper, shall be incontestable in the hands of bona fide purchasers or holders for value, and shall not be invalid for any irregularity or defect in the proceedings for their issuance and sale. This chapter is intended to afford an alternative method for the issuance of refunding bonds by public bodies and shall not be so construed as to deprive any public body of the right to issue bonds for refunding purposes under authority of any other statute, but this chapter, nevertheless, shall constitute full authority for the issue and sale of refunding bonds by public bodies. Section 11-1-1 and Title 66, Chapter 2, however, shall not be applicable to refunding bonds.
(2) Any public body subject to any budget law shall in its annual budget make proper provision for the payment of principal and interest currently falling due on refunding bonds, but no provision need be made in the budget prior to the issuance of the refunding bonds for their issuance or for the expenditure of the proceeds from them.
(3) No ordinance, resolution, or proceeding concerning the issuance of refunding bonds nor the publication of any resolution, proceeding, or notice relating to the issuance of the refunding bonds shall be necessary except as specifically required by this chapter. Any publication made under this chapter may be made in any newspaper in which legal notices may be published under the laws of Utah, without regard to its designation as the official journal or newspaper of the public body.
(4) No resolution adopted or proceeding taken under this chapter shall be subject to any referendum petition or to an election other than as required by this chapter. All proceedings adopted under this chapter may be adopted on a single reading at any legally-convened meeting of the governing body. This chapter shall apply to all bonds issued and outstanding at the time this chapter takes effect as well as to bonds issued after this chapter takes effect.
Enacted by Chapter 43, 1981 General Session
