48-3618. Resolution calling for bond election; notice; manner of conducting election
A. After a county flood control district has been established pursuant to this article, the board may order that facilities be acquired, constructed, operated and maintained from available monies of the district. If sufficient monies are not available, the board may call an election of the electors of the district qualified to vote under article VII, section 13, Constitution of Arizona, to obtain approval for incurring bonded indebtedness of the district to obtain revenue to acquire by purchase, construction or otherwise all or any portion of such facilities.
B. After authority has been acquired for instituting a project within a zone or a joint project by two or more contiguous zones in a district established under this article, the board may order that the facilities approved in the project or joint project be acquired, constructed, operated and maintained from the monies held by the district treasurer for expenditure in the respective zone or zones. If sufficient monies are not available, the board may call an election of the electors of the zone, or of the zones for which a joint project has been authorized, who are qualified to vote under article VII, section 13, Constitution of Arizona, to obtain approval for incurring bonded indebtedness to obtain revenue to acquire by purchase, construction or otherwise all or any portion of the facilities.
C. The board resolution shall set forth the purpose of the indebtedness, the amount of the indebtedness, the maximum number of years for which the indebtedness is to be incurred, the maximum rate of interest to be paid and the date of the election and shall list the voting places to be used at the election. The election must be held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November as prescribed by section 16-204, subsection B, paragraph 1, subdivision (d). The resolution constitutes a notice of the election and shall be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the area of jurisdiction, or if there is no such newspaper, then notice shall be posted in not less than three public places within the area of jurisdiction, the first of which publications shall be not less than twenty days before the date fixed for the election. Publication on the same day of each week is sufficient whether or not a daily newspaper is used for the publication.
D. Except as otherwise expressly provided, the election shall be called and held and the results canvassed in the manner provided by the laws of this state for holding elections on the issuance of bonds by counties for general county purposes. For purposes of the election the board may treat the entire district as a single precinct or may divide the district into such precincts and fix such polling places as it may see fit.
E. If a majority of the votes cast on the proposition is in favor of incurring the bonded indebtedness proposed, the bonds so authorized may be sold and issued by the board of directors either at one time or in blocks.
