Article 5. Bond Election of California Public Utilities Code >> Division 10. >> Part 1. >> Chapter 10.5. >> Article 5.
At any time after the adoption by the board of the
resolution creating a special transit service district,
notwithstanding the effective date of the resolution, the board may
provide for the submission of a proposition for the incurring of a
bonded indebtedness to be incurred by the district on behalf of the
special transit service district to pay the costs of acquiring,
constructing, or completing the whole or any portion of any transit
facilities, or for acquiring any works, lands, structures, rights,
equipment, or other property necessary or convenient to carry out the
objects, purposes or powers of the district within the boundaries of
a special transit service district created pursuant to this chapter.
The proposition for incurring a bonded indebtedness under
Section 27451 may be submitted to the voters of any public agency or
portion thereof at the same election as a proposition to create the
special transit service district within a public agency or portion
thereof, held pursuant to Article 3 (commencing at Section 27421). In
such event a proposition for incurring a bonded indebtedness shall
be submitted at a separate special bond election in all portions of
the special transit service district in which no election is held
pursuant to Article 3 (commencing at Section 27421).
Except as otherwise provided in this article, the provisions
of Chapter 7 (commencing at Section 26201) shall substantially
govern as to all matters pertaining to the issuance of bonds under
this article, including, among other things and without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, the calling, holding, and consolidation
of the bond election, the formation, execution, issuance, maturity,
redemption, refunding, validation, the payment of interest from bond
funds, and the status of the bonds as investments.
The favorable vote of a majority of all the voters voting on
the proposition to authorize the issuance of bonds at the election
or elections held pursuant to Sections 27451 or 27452 within the
special transit service district as finally established is required
to authorize the issuance of the bonds.
Only the property in the special transit service district
shall be taxable for the payment of the principal and interest on
special transit service district bonds. Until the bonds are paid,
taxes shall be levied in substantial compliance with Section 25893.
Any proceeding denying the validity of the creation of any
special transit service district, or of any bonds authorized by the
voters thereof, pursuant to this part, shall be brought within three
months after the date upon which the applicable resolution is adopted
by the board or the applicable proposition is approved by the
