§ 655. Type of bonds--Interest--Conditions--Sale and execution
(a) The issuance of revenue bonds shall be by a resolution of the trustees. The bonds may be issued in one or more series, may bear such date or dates, may mature at such time or times, not exceeding thirty (30) years from their respective dates, may bear interest at such rate or rates, not exceeding the maximum rate provided by Section 498.1 of this title, may be in such form, may be executed in such manner, may be payable in such medium of payment, at such place or places, may be subject to such terms of redemption, and may contain such terms, covenants, and conditions as the resolution may provide including without limitation those pertaining to the custody and application of the proceeds of the bonds, the collection and disposition of revenues, the maintenance of various funds and reserves, the nature and extent of the security, the rights, duties, and obligations of the trustees and the trustee for the holders or registered owners of the bonds, and the rights of the holders or registered owners of the bonds. There may be successive bond issues for the purpose of financing the same industrial project (lands, buildings, or facilities) involving one or more industries, and there may be successive bond issues for financing the cost of reconstructing, replacing, constructing additions to, extending, improving, and equipping industrial projects (lands, buildings, or facilities) already in existence, whether or not originally financed by bonds issued under this act,1 with each successive issue to be authorized as provided by this act. Priority between and among issues and successive issues as to security of the pledge of revenues and mortgage lien on the lands, buildings, and facilities involved may be controlled by the ordinance or resolution authorizing the issuance of bonds hereunder. The bonds shall have all the qualities of negotiable instruments under the negotiable instruments laws of this state.
(b) Said resolution may provide for the execution by the trustees of an indenture which defines the rights of the bondholders and provides for the appointment of a trustee for the bondholders. Such indenture may control the priority between successive issues and may contain any other terms, covenants, and conditions that are deemed desirable, including without limitation those pertaining to the custody and application of the proceeds of the bonds, the collection and disposition of revenues, the maintenance of various funds and reserves, the nature and extent of the security, the rights, duties, and obligations of the trustees and the trustee for the holders or registered owners of the bonds, and the rights of the holders or registered owners of the bonds; provided, the indenture shall state that it constitutes no obligation against or pledge of the full faith and credit of the municipality and county.
(c) The bonds shall be sold only after public advertisement for bids, to the bidder offering the lowest effective interest rate and best terms on the proposal so advertised, and may be sold for such price, including without limitation sale of a discount, and in such manner as the trustees may determine by resolution, but in no event shall the trustees be required to pay more than the maximum rate provided by Section 498.1 of this title on the amount received, computed with relation to the absolute maturity of the bonds in accordance with the Standard Tables of Bond Values. The bonds may be sold with the privilege of conversion into an issue bearing other rate or rates of interest, upon such terms that the trustees receive no less and pay no more than they would receive and pay if the bonds were not converted, and the conversion shall be subject to the approval of the trustees.
(d) The bonds shall be executed by the chairman and secretary of the trustees, and in case any of the officers whose signatures appear on the bonds shall cease to be such officers before the delivery of such bonds or coupons, such signatures shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes. Facsimile signatures may be used as provided in the Registered Public Obligations Act of Oklahoma.2
