If the board deems it advisable it may call an election and
submit to the electors of the district the question whether district
bonds shall be issued and sold. The board shall call a bond election
upon the filing with the board of a petition signed by 10 percent of
the registered voters of the district.
The board shall call and conduct the bond election in the
manner prescribed by this chapter.
The order calling the bond election shall be signed by a
majority of the directors.
In the order calling the bond election, the board may submit
to the electors as one proposal the question of issuing bonds for
all or any of the purposes described in this article, or it may
submit as separate questions the issuance of bonds for any of these
purposes, singly or in such combinations as it directs in the order.
When bonds issued pursuant to this part have been
investigated and certified by any authorized officer of the state and
are declared to be legal investments for savings banks, they may be
purchased or received in pledge for loans by savings banks, building
and loan companies, trust companies, insurance companies, guardians,
conservators, executors, administrators, and special administrators,
or by any public officer of the state or of any county or other
municipal or corporate body in the state having or holding funds
which they may legally invest or loan.
If any officer whose signature, countersignature, or
attestation appears on the bonds or coupons ceases to be such officer
before the delivery of the bonds to the purchaser, the signature,
countersignature, or attestation is valid and sufficient for all
purposes as if he had remained in office until the delivery of the
bonds. The signature on the coupons of the person who is auditor at
the date of the bonds is valid although the bonds may be attested by
a different person who is auditor at the time of their delivery.
