[Approved February 1, 1965]

 

      Whereas, The City Council of the City of Winnemucca in the County of Humboldt, in the State of Nevada (herein sometimes designated as the “Council,” the “City,” the “County,” and the “State,” respectively), ordered the submission of, and there was submitted, at the general election held in the City on Tuesday, the 3rd day of November, 1964 (herein sometimes designated as the “election”), to the duly qualified electors of the City, a proposal authorizing the City to incur an indebtedness by the issuance of the City’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation sewer improvement bonds, at one time, or from time to time, in the aggregate principal amount of $300,000.00, or so much thereof as may be necessary, for the purpose of defraying, in part, the cost of improving the municipal sewer system of the City of Winnemucca (herein sometimes designated as the “Project”), said bonds to bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 5 percent per annum, and to mature serially, commencing not later than 3 years and ending not later than 20 years from their date, payable from annual general tax levies, and containing, at the City’s option, such terms, covenants and other provisions, including but not limited to provisions for the redemption of bonds prior to their maturity without or with a premium not exceeding three percent (3%) of the principal amount thereof, and provisions for securing the payment of the bonds by pledging all or a part of the revenues derived from the operation of the municipal sewer system; and

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 2 (Chapter 2, SB 2)ê

 

bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 5 percent per annum, and to mature serially, commencing not later than 3 years and ending not later than 20 years from their date, payable from annual general tax levies, and containing, at the City’s option, such terms, covenants and other provisions, including but not limited to provisions for the redemption of bonds prior to their maturity without or with a premium not exceeding three percent (3%) of the principal amount thereof, and provisions for securing the payment of the bonds by pledging all or a part of the revenues derived from the operation of the municipal sewer system; and

      Whereas, Said proposal was approved by a majority voting thereon of those qualified electors of the City who were owners of, or spouses of owners of, real property in the City assessed on the assessment roll and also by a majority voting thereon of all other qualified electors of the City; and

      Whereas, It is hereby declared, as a matter of legislative determination, that existing grants of power are insufficient and existing legal limitations are unduly restrictive, and by their modification a more economical and otherwise superior plan of financing the Project can be achieved; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The City, acting by and through the Council, in addition to the powers elsewhere conferred upon the City, is hereby authorized and empowered, upon its behalf, without the necessity of another election or other or further preliminaries, to issue the City’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation sewer improvement bonds (herein sometimes designated as the “bonds”), in the aggregate principal amount of not exceeding $300,000.00, or such lesser amount as may be necessary, for the purpose of defraying, in part, the cost of improving the municipal sewer system.

      Sec. 2.  1.  The bonds shall be sold at public sale in accordance with NRS 350.120 to 350.160, inclusive, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest thereon, or, at the option of the Council, below par at a discount of not exceeding 6 percent of the principal amount thereof and at a price which will not result in a net interest cost to the City of more than 6 percent per annum computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values including as a part of such cost the amount of discount permitted by the Council on the sale of the bonds.

      2.  No discount (except as herein otherwise provided) or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any bond sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly.

interest and principal, or shall be placed in a reserve fund to be accumulated and maintained to secure additionally the payment of such interest or principal, or both such interest and principal.

      (e) Have interest coupons attached in such manner or otherwise appertain to the bonds so that the coupons can be presented for payment or the installments of interest without injury to or presentation of the bonds (unless the bonds be registered for payment as to both principal and interest and there thus be no coupons), each of which coupons shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it appertains;

      (f) Be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without or both within and without the State, as may be provided by the Council; and

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 5 (Chapter 2, SB 2)ê

      8.  In case any outstanding bond shall become mutilated, or be destroyed, stolen or lost, the City may authenticate and deliver a new bond (with appropriate coupons attached unless registered for payment as to interest) of like tenor, number and amount as the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, so mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost:

      10.  Any bond shall be executed in the name of and on behalf of the City, signed by the Mayor, countersigned by the treasurer, with the seal of the City affixed thereto, and attested by the clerk.

      11.  Any interest coupons shall be payable to bearer and shall bear the original or facsimile signature of the treasurer.

      2.  Insofar as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the City, without limitation as to rate or amount (except for the designated constitutional limitation) and without regard to any statutory limitation now or hereafter existing.

      3.  It shall be the duty of the Council and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes in the City, annually in due season to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as the same become due.

      4.  In case the moneys produced from such levies, together with any other revenues of the City available therefor, are not sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds as the same become due, and to pay any defaults and deficiencies, the Council shall make such additional levies of taxes as may be necessary for such purposes, and, notwithstanding any limitations, such taxes shall be made and continue to be levied until the bonds (as well as any other bonded debt of the City) are fully paid.

      6.  The City may pay the principal of and interest on any bonds from any available revenues, and the levy or levies of general (ad valorem) taxes herein provided may be diminished to the extent such other revenues are available for the payment of such principal and interest.

      Sec. 8.  1.  Before the Council shall cause to be delivered bonds hereunder, all such bonds shall be registered by the treasurer of the City in a book kept in his office for that purpose.

The auditor shall credit the treasurer on his books for the amount so paid.

      Sec. 10.  No interest shall accrue on any bond herein authorized after it becomes due and payable, provided funds for the payment of the principal and the interest on the bond and any prior redemption premium due are available to the paying agent for such payment without default.

      Sec. 11.  Bonds issued hereunder, their transfer, and the income therefrom shall forever be and remain free and exempt from taxation by the State and any subdivision thereof.

CHAPTER 5

[Approved February 5, 1965]

 

      Whereas, The City Council of the City of Lovelock in the County of Pershing, in the State of Nevada (herein sometimes designated as the “Council,” the “City,” the “County,” and the “State,” respectively), ordered the submission of, and there was submitted, at the general election held in the City on Tuesday, the 3rd day of November, 1964, (herein sometimes designated as the “election”), to the duly qualified electors of the City, a proposal authorizing the City to incur an indebtedness by the issuance of the City’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation water improvement bonds, at one time, or from time to time, in the aggregate principal amount of $350,000.00, or so much thereof as may be necessary, for the purpose of defraying, in part, the cost of improving the municipal water system of the City of Lovelock including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the acquisition of new storage and distribution facilities (herein sometimes designated as the “Project”), said bonds to bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 5 percent per annum, and to mature serially, as provided by law, payable from annual general tax levies, and containing, at the City’s option, such terms, covenants and other provisions, including but not limited to provisions for the redemption of bonds prior to their maturity without or with a premium not exceeding 3 percent of the principal amount thereof, and provisions for securing the payment of the bonds by pledging all or a part of the revenues derived from the operation of the municipal water system (sometimes referred to herein as the “System”); and

      Whereas, Said proposal was approved by a majority voting thereon of those qualified electors of the City who were owners of, or spouses of owners of, real property in the City assessed on the assessment roll and also by a majority voting thereon of all other qualified electors of the City; and

of those qualified electors of the City who were owners of, or spouses of owners of, real property in the City assessed on the assessment roll and also by a majority voting thereon of all other qualified electors of the City; and

      Whereas, It is hereby declared, as a matter of legislative determination, that existing grants of power are insufficient and existing legal limitations are unduly restrictive, and by their modification a more economical and otherwise superior plan of financing the Project can be achieved; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The City, acting by and through the Council, in addition to the powers elsewhere conferred upon the City, is hereby authorized and empowered, upon its behalf, without the necessity of another election or other or further preliminaries, to issue the City’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation water improvement bonds (herein sometimes designated as the “bonds”), in the aggregate principal amount of not exceeding $350,000.00, or such lesser amount as may be necessary, for the purpose or defraying, in part, the cost of improving the municipal water system, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the acquisition of new storage and distribution facilities.

      Sec. 2.  1.  The bonds shall be sold at public sale in accordance with NRS 350.120 to 350.160, inclusive, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest thereon, or, at the option of the Council, below par at a discount of not exceeding 5 percent of the principal amount thereof and at a price which will not result in a net interest cost to the City of more than 5 percent per annum computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values including as a part of such cost the amount of discount permitted by the Council on the sale of the bonds.

      2.  No discount (except as herein otherwise provided) or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any bond sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly.

      3.  The Council may employ legal, fiscal, engineering and other expert services in connection with the Project and the authorization, issuance and sale of the bonds.

      4.  Any accrued interest and any premium shall be applied to the payment of the interest on or the principal of the bonds, or both interest and principal, or shall be placed in a reserve fund to be accumulated and maintained to secure additionally the payment of such interest or principal, or both such interest and principal. Otherwise the bond proceeds shall be used to defray the cost of the Project, which cost, at the option of the Council, may include all or any part of the incidental costs appertaining to the Project, including without limiting the generality of the foregoing, preliminary expenses advanced by the City from funds available for use therefor in the making of surveys, preliminary plans, estimates of cost, other preliminaries, the costs of appraising, printing, employing engineers, architects, fiscal agents, attorneys at law, clerical help, other agents or employees, the costs of making, publishing, posting, mailing and otherwise giving any notice in connection with the election, any bond sale, or otherwise appertaining to the Project, the taking of options, the issuance of bonds, the capitalization with bond proceeds of any sale discount, or interest on the bonds for any reasonable period, or both, the acquisition of properties by condemnation, or otherwise, and all expenses necessary or desirable and appertaining to the Project, as estimated or otherwise ascertained by the Council.

      5.  Any unexpended balance of bond proceeds remaining after the completion of the Project shall be paid immediately into a fund created for the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds and shall be used therefor, subject to the provisions as to the times and methods for their payment as stated in the bonds and in the proceedings authorizing their issuance.

      6.  The validity of the bonds shall not be dependent on nor be affected by the validity or regularity of any proceedings relating to the Project.

      7.  The purchaser or purchasers of any bonds shall in no manner be responsible for the application of the proceeds of the bonds by the City, the Council, or any of the officers, agents and employees of the City.

      8.  No bonds hereby authorized shall be delivered after the expiration of 5 years from the effective date of this act.

      Sec. 3.  The bonds may be issued at one time or from time to time in one series or more. Each series of bonds shall be authorized by ordinance of the City.

      Sec. 4.  Any ordinance may provide that each bond therein authorized shall recite that it is issued under authority hereof. Such recital shall conclusively impart full compliance with all of the provisions hereof, and all bonds issued containing such recital shall be incontestable for any cause whatsoever after their delivery for value.

      Sec. 5.  1.  The bonds of any series hereunder shall:

      (a) Be of convenient denominations;

      (b) Be negotiable in form and payable to bearer, subject to any provisions for their registration for payment;

      (e) Have interest coupons attached in such manner or otherwise appertain to the bonds so that the coupons can be presented for payment of the installments of interest without injury to or presentation of the bonds (unless the bonds be registered for payment as to both principal and interest and there thus be no coupons), each of which coupons shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it appertains;

      2.  Any ordinance authorizing the issuance of any bond series may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to their respective maturities, upon such terms, in such order, or by lot, or otherwise, and upon the payment of such premium, if any, not exceeding 3 percent of the principal amount of each bond so redeemed, as the Council may determine and state in the ordinance.

      3.  Bonds may be issued with privileges for registration for payment as to principal alone, or both principal and interest, at any bond-holder’s option, or for registration for payment only in either manner designated; and where interest accruing on the bonds is not represented by interest coupons, the bonds may provide for the endorsing of payments of interest thereon or for reconverting the bonds into coupon bonds, or both for such endorsement and such reconversion.

      4.  The bonds generally shall be issued in such manner, in such form, with such provisions for conversion into bonds of other denominations, with such recitals, terms, covenants and conditions, and with such other details, as may be provided by the Council in the ordinance or ordinances authorizing the bonds, except as herein otherwise provided.

      5.  Pending preparations of the definitive bonds, temporary bonds in such form and with such provisions as the Council may determine may be issued.

      6.  Subject to the payment provisions herein expressly provided, the bonds, any interest coupons appertaining thereto, and any temporary bonds shall be fully negotiable within the meaning of and for all the purposes of the Negotiable Instruments Law.

      7.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Council in any proceedings authorizing bonds hereunder:

      (a) May provide for the initial issuance of one or more bonds (in this subsection 7 called “bond”) aggregating the amount of the entire issue or any portion thereof;

      (b) May make such provision for installment payments of the principal amount of any such bond as it may consider desirable, and for the endorsing of payments of principal on such bond;

      (c) May provide for the making of any such bond payable to bearer or otherwise, registrable for payment as elsewhere provided herein, and where interest accruing thereon is not represented by interest coupons, for the endorsing of payments of interest on such bond; and

      (d) May make provision in any such proceedings for the manner and circumstances in and under which any such bond may in the future, at the request of the holder thereof, be converted into bonds of smaller denominations, which bonds of smaller denominations may in turn be either coupon bonds, or bonds registered for payment, or coupon bonds with provisions for registration for payment.

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 16 (Chapter 5, AB 30)ê

 

      8.  In case any outstanding bond shall become mutilated, or be destroyed, stolen or lost, the City may authenticate and deliver a new bond (with appropriate coupons attached unless registered for payment as to interest) of like tenor, number and amount as the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, so mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost:

      (a) In exchange and substitution for such mutilated bond and appurtenant coupons, if any; or

      (b) In lieu of and substitution for the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, destroyed, stolen or lost:

             (1) Upon filing with the City evidence satisfactory to the Council that such bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, have been destroyed, stolen or lost, and proof of ownership thereof; and

             (2) Upon furnishing the City with indemnity satisfactory to the Council,

upon complying with such reasonable regulations as the Council may prescribe, and upon the payment of such expenses as the City may incur in connection therewith.

      9.  The City may also reissue any outstanding bond (upon such terms and conditions as the Council and the holder thereof, or, if registered for payment to other than bearer, the registered owner thereof, may determine) which shall not have become mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost, regardless of whether so provided in any proceedings authorizing its issuance.

      10.  Any bond shall be executed in the name of and on behalf of the City, signed by the Mayor, countersigned by the city treasurer, with the seal of the City affixed thereto, and attested by the city clerk.

      11.  Any interest coupons shall be payable to bearer and shall bear the original or facsimile signature of the treasurer.

      12.  Any bond may be executed as provided in the Uniform Facsimile Signatures of Public Officials Act. (A compliance therewith is not a condition precedent to the execution of any coupon with a facsimile signature.)

      13.  The bonds and coupons, bearing the signature of the officers in office at the time of the signing thereof, shall be the valid and binding obligations of the City, notwithstanding that before the delivery thereof and payment therefor, any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to fill their respective offices.

      14.  Any officer authorized or permitted to sign any bond or coupons, at the time of its execution and of the execution of a signature certificate, may adopt as and for his own facsimile signature the facsimile signature of his predecessor in office in the event that such facsimile signature appears upon the bond or coupons appertaining thereto, or upon both the bond and such coupons.

      Sec. 6.  Bonds issued hereunder shall be a debt of the City, and the City shall thereby pledge its full faith and credit for their payment.

      Sec. 7.  1.  The bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions hereof shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all of the taxable property in the City, including the net proceeds of mines.

      2.  Insofar as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the City, without limitation as to rate or amount (except for the designated constitutional limitation) and without regard to any statutory limitation now or hereafter existing.

      3.  It shall be the duty of the Council and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes in the City, annually in due season to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as the same become due.

      4.  In case the moneys produced from such levies, together with any other revenues of the City available therefor, are not sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds as the same become due, and to pay any defaults and deficiencies, the Council shall make such additional levies of taxes as may be necessary for such purposes, and, notwithstanding any limitations, such taxes shall be made and continue to be levied until the bonds (as well as any other bonded debt of the City) are fully paid.

      5.  Any such tax levy shall enjoy the same priority as provided by NRS 350.250, as from time to time amended, for other taxes levied for the payment of bonded indebtedness over taxes levied for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State.

      6.  The City may pay the principal of and interest on any bonds from any available revenues, and the levy or levies of general (ad valorem) taxes herein provided may be diminished to the extent such other revenues are available for the payment of such principal and interest.

      Sec. 8.  The general obligation bonds authorized to be issued hereunder may be additionally secured by a pledge of all or a part of the revenues derived from the operation of the municipal water system, and, upon a determination by the Council that further security is required in order to render the bonds marketable, the bonds may be further secured by a pledge of such other funds or revenues of the City as may legally be made available for the payment of such general obligation bonds.

      Sec. 9.  Any ordinance authorizing the issuance of bonds pursuant to this act and any other instrument appertaining thereto may contain covenants and other provisions (notwithstanding such covenants and provisions may limit the exercise of powers conferred thereby), in order to secure the payment of such bonds, in agreement with the holders and owners of such bonds, as to any one or more of the following:

      1.  Any rents, rates, fees, tolls, other service charges, and any taxes to be fixed, charged or levied, and the collection, use and disposition thereof, including but not limited to the foreclosure of liens for delinquencies, the discontinuance of services, facilities or commodities, or use of the System, prohibition against free service, the collection of penalties and collection costs, including disconnection and reconnection fees, and the use and disposition of any revenues of the City, derived or to be derived, from any source.

      7.  The use, regulation, inspection, management, operation, maintenance or disposition, or any limitation or regulation of the use, of all or any part of any revenues of the City.

[Approved February 5, 1965]

 

      Whereas, The Board of County Commissioners of the County of Elko, in the State of Nevada (herein sometimes designated as the “Board,” the “County,” and the “State,” respectively), ordered the submission of, and there was submitted, at the general election held in the County on Tuesday, the 3rd day of November, 1964 (herein sometimes designated as the “election”), to the duly qualified electors of the County, a proposal authorizing the County to incur an indebtedness by the issuance of the County’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation bonds, in one series or more, in the aggregate principal amount of $150,000.00, or so much thereof as may be necessary, for the purpose of improving, reconstructing, extending and bettering the Elko County fairgrounds, equipping and furnishing the same, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, constructing and otherwise acquiring a grandstand (herein sometimes designated as the “Project”), said bonds to bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 5 percent per annum, and to mature serially according to law, commencing not later than 3 years and ending not later than 20 years from the date of the bonds, payable from general (ad valorem) taxes (except to the extent other moneys are available therefor), and to be issued and sold in such manner, upon such terms and conditions, with such covenants and agreements, and with such other detail as the Board may determine, including at its option, but not necessarily limited to, provisions for the redemption of bonds prior to maturity without or with the payment of a premium; and

provisions for the redemption of bonds prior to maturity without or with the payment of a premium; and

      Whereas, Said proposal was approved by a majority voting thereon of those qualified electors of the County who were owners of, or spouses of owners of, real property assessed on the County assessment roll and also by a majority voting thereon of all other qualified electors of the County; and

      Whereas, It is hereby declared, as a matter of legislative determination, that existing grants of power are insufficient and existing legal limitations are unduly restrictive, and by their modification a more economical and otherwise superior plan of financing the Project can be achieved; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The County, acting by and through the Board, in addition to the powers elsewhere conferred upon the County, is hereby authorized and empowered, upon its behalf, without the necessity of another election or other or further preliminaries, to issue the County’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation bonds (herein sometimes designated as the “bonds”), in the aggregate principal amount of not exceeding $150,000.00, or such lesser amount as may be necessary, for the purpose of improving, reconstructing, extending and bettering the Elko County fairgrounds, equipping and furnishing the same, including without limiting the generality of the foregoing, constructing and otherwise acquiring a grandstand.

      Sec. 2.  1.  The bonds shall be sold at public sale in accordance with NRS 350.120 to 350.160, inclusive, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest thereon, or, at the option of the Board, below par at a discount of not exceeding 5 percent of the principal amount thereof and at a price which will not result in a net interest cost to the County of more than 5 percent per annum computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values including as a part of such cost the amount of discount permitted by the Board on the sale of the bonds.

      2.  No discount (except as herein otherwise provided) or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any bond sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly.

      3.  The Board may employ legal, fiscal, engineering and other expert services in connection with the Project and the authorization, issuance and sale of the bonds.

      4.  Any accrued interest and any premium shall be applied to the payment of the interest on or the principal of the bonds, or both interest and principal, or shall be placed in a reserve fund to be accumulated and maintained to secure additionally the payment of such interest or principal, or both such interest and principal. Otherwise the bond proceeds shall be used to defray the cost of the Project, which cost, at the option of the Board, may include all or any part of the incidental costs appertaining to the Project, including without limiting the generality of the foregoing, preliminary expenses advanced by the County from funds available for use therefor in the making of surveys, preliminary plans, estimates of cost, other preliminaries, the costs of appraising, printing, employing engineers, architects, fiscal agents, attorneys at law, clerical help, other agents or employees, the costs of making, publishing, posting, mailing and otherwise giving any notice in connection with the election, any bond sale, or otherwise appertaining to the Project, the taking of options, the issuance of bonds, the capitalization with bond proceeds of any sale discount, or interest on the bonds for any reasonable period, or both, the acquisition of properties by condemnation, or otherwise, and all other expenses necessary or desirable and appertaining to the Project, as estimated or otherwise ascertained by the Board.

      5.  Any unexpended balance of bond proceeds remaining after the completion of the Project shall be paid immediately into a fund created for the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds and shall be used therefor, subject to the provisions as to the times and methods for their payment as stated in the bonds and in the proceedings authorizing their issuance.

      6.  The validity of the bonds shall not be dependent on nor be affected by the validity or regularity of any proceedings relating to the Project.

      7.  The purchaser or purchasers of any bonds shall in no manner be responsible for the application of the proceeds of the bonds by the County, the Board, or any of the officers, agents and employees of the County.

      8.  No bonds hereby authorized shall be delivered after the expiration of 5 years from the effective date of this act.

      Sec. 3.  The bonds may be issued at one time or from time to time in one series or more. Each series of bonds shall be authorized by ordinance of the County.

      Sec. 4.  Any ordinance may provide that each bond therein authorized shall recite that it is issued under authority hereof. Such recital shall conclusively impart full compliance with all of the provisions hereof, and all bonds issued containing such recital shall be incontestable for any cause whatsoever after their delivery for value.

      Sec. 5.  1.  The bonds of any series hereunder shall:

      (a) Be of convenient denominations;

      (b) Be negotiable in form and payable to bearer, subject to any provisions for their registration for payment;

      (e) Have interest coupons attached in such manner or otherwise appertain to the bonds so that the coupons can be presented for payment of the installments of interest without injury to or presentation of the bonds (unless the bonds be registered for payment as to both principal and interest and there thus be no coupons), each of which coupons shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it appertains;

      2.  Any ordinance authorizing the issuance of any bond series may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to their respective maturities, upon such terms, in such order, or by lot, or otherwise, and upon the payment of such premium, if any, not exceeding 5 percent of the principal amount of each bond so redeemed, as the Board may determine and state in the ordinance.

      3.  Bonds may be issued with privileges for registration for payment as to principal alone, or both principal and interest, at any bond-holder’s option, or for registration for payment only in either manner designated; and where interest accruing on the bonds is not represented by interest coupons, the bonds may provide for the endorsing of payments of interest thereon or for reconverting the bonds into coupon bonds, or both for such endorsement and such reconversion.

      4.  The bonds generally shall be issued in such manner, in such form, with such provisions for conversion into bonds of other denominations, with such recitals, terms, covenants and conditions, and with such other details, as may be provided by the Board in the ordinance or ordinances authorizing the bonds, except as herein otherwise provided.

      5.  Pending preparations of the definitive bonds, temporary bonds in such form and with such provisions as the Board may determine may be issued.

      6.  Subject to the payment provisions herein expressly provided, the bonds, any interest coupons appertaining thereto, and any temporary bonds shall be fully negotiable within the meaning of and for all the purposes of the Negotiable Instruments Law.

      7.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Board in any proceedings authorizing bonds hereunder:

      (a) May provide for the initial issuance of one or more bonds (in this subsection 7 called “bond”) aggregating the amount of the entire issue or any portion thereof;

      (b) May make such provision for installment payments of the principal amount of any such bond as it may consider desirable, and for the endorsing of payments of principal on such bond;

      (c) May provide for the making of any such bond payable to bearer or otherwise, registerable for payment as elsewhere provided herein, and where interest accruing thereon is not represented by interest coupons, for the endorsing of payments of interest on such bond; and

      (d) May make provision in any such proceedings for the manner and circumstances in and under which any such bond may in the future, at the request of the holder thereof, be converted into bonds of smaller denominations, which bonds of smaller denominations may in turn be either coupon bonds, or bonds registered for payment, or coupon bonds with provisions for registration for payment.

and circumstances in and under which any such bond may in the future, at the request of the holder thereof, be converted into bonds of smaller denominations, which bonds of smaller denominations may in turn be either coupon bonds, or bonds registered for payment, or coupon bonds with provisions for registration for payment.

      8.  In case any outstanding bond shall become mutilated, or be destroyed, stolen or lost, the County may authenticate and deliver a new bond (with appropriate coupons attached unless registered for payment as to interest) of like tenor, number and amount as the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, so mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost:

      (a) In exchange and substitution for such mutilated bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, or

      (b) In lieu of and substitution for the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, destroyed, stolen or lost:

      9.  The County may also reissue any outstanding bond (upon such terms and conditions as the board and the holder thereof, or, if registered for payment to other than bearer, the registered owner thereof, may determine) which shall not have become mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost, regardless of whether so provided in any proceedings authorizing its issuance.

      10.  Any bond shall be executed in the name of and on behalf of the County, signed by the chairman of the Board, countersigned by the county treasurer, with the seal of the County affixed thereto, and attested by the county clerk.

      11.  Any interest coupons shall be payable to bearer and shall bear the original or facsimile signature of the county treasurer.

      12.  Any bond may be executed as provided in the Uniform Facsimile Signatures of Public Officials Act. (A compliance therewith is not a condition precedent to the execution of any coupon with a facsimile signature.)

      13.  The bonds and coupons, bearing the signatures of the officers in office at the time of the signing thereof, shall be the valid and binding obligations of the County, notwithstanding that before the delivery thereof and payment therefor, any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to fill their respective offices.

      14.  Any officer authorized or permitted to sign any bond or coupons, at the time of its execution and of the execution of a signature certificate, may adopt as and for his own facsimile signature the facsimile signature of his predecessor in office in the event that such facsimile signature appears upon the bond or coupons appertaining thereto, or upon both the bond and such coupons.

      Sec. 7.  1.  The bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions hereof shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all of the taxable property in the County, including the net proceeds of mines.

      2.  Insofar as legally possible, within the limitation of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the County, without limitation as to rate or amount (except for the designated constitutional limitation) and without regard to any statutory limitation now or hereafter existing.

      4.  In case the moneys produced from such levies, together with any other revenues of the County available therefor, are not sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds as the same become due, and to pay any defaults and deficiencies, the Board shall make such additional levies of taxes as may be necessary for such purposes, and, notwithstanding any limitations, such taxes shall be made and continue to be levied until the bonds (as well as any other bonded debt of the County) are fully paid.

      5.  Any such tax levy shall enjoy the same priority as provided by NRS 350.250, as from time to time amended, for other taxes levied for the payment of bonded indebtedness over taxes levied for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State.

      6.  The County may pay the principal of and interest on any bonds from any available revenues, and the levy or levies of general (ad valorem) taxes herein provided may be diminished to the extent such other revenues are available for the payment of such principal and interest.

      Sec. 9.  Whenever the county treasurer shall redeem and pay any of the bonds issued under the provisions of this act, he shall cancel the same by writing across the face thereof or by stamping thereon the word “Paid,” together with the date of its payment, sign his name thereto, and transmit the same to the county auditor, taking his receipt therefor, which receipt shall subsequently be filed with the county clerk’s records.

The county auditor shall credit the county treasurer on his books for the amount so paid.

      Sec. 10.  No interest shall accrue on any bond herein authorized after it becomes due and payable, provided funds for the payment of the principal and the interest on the bond and any prior redemption premium due are available to the paying agent for such payment without default.

      2.  The executive director shall, as of the computation date for each calendar year, classify employers in accordance with their actual payrolls, contributions and benefit experience, and shall determine for each employer the rate of contribution which shall apply to him for each calendar year in order to reflect such experience and classification.

      No employer’s contribution rate shall be reduced below 2.7 percent, unless there have been 12 consecutive calendar quarters immediately preceding the computation date throughout which he has been subject to this chapter and his account as an employer could have been charged with benefit payments, except that for the calendar year beginning January 1, 1960, and for each year thereafter an employer who has not been subject to the law for a sufficient period to meet this requirement may qualify for a rate less than 2.7 percent if his account has been chargeable throughout a lesser period, but in no event, less than the 10-consecutive-calendar-quarter period ending on the computation date.

      3.  Any employer who qualifies under subsection 9 and receives the experience record of a predecessor employer shall be assigned the contribution rate of such predecessor.

      4.  Benefits paid to an individual up to and including the computation date shall be charged against the experience rating records of his base period employers in the same percentage relationship that wages reported by individual employers represent to total wages reported by all base period employers; provided:

The lowest contribution rate shall be assigned to the designated range of highest reserve ratios and each succeeding higher contribution rate shall be assigned to each succeeding designated range of lower reserve ratios, except that, within the limits possible, the differences between reserve ratio ranges shall be uniform.

      [5.]6.  Each employer eligible for a contribution rate based upon experience and classified in accordance with this section shall be assigned a contribution rate by the executive director for each calendar year according to the following classes:

 

Class 1........................................................................................... [0.1]    0.6 percent

Class 2........................................................................................... [0.3]    0.9 percent

      6.  The executive director shall, on September 30, 1962, and on September 30 of each year thereafter, determine the highest benefit cost rate experienced during the 10-year period immediately preceding such date by dividing total benefit payments during every consecutive 12-month period of such 10-year period by total wages paid in the 4 calendar quarters which ended nearest to the last day of such 12-month period. The highest ratio obtained by such divisions is the highest benefit cost rate.

Contribution rates of less than 2.7 percent shall not be assigned to apply for the calendar year 1963 or for any calendar year thereafter if the executive director finds on September 30 preceding any such calendar year that the percentage relationship which the total amount available for benefits in the unemployment compensation fund on such date bears to the total wages reported by employers for the 4 consecutive calendar quarters ending on the preceding June 30 is less than 1 1/2 times the highest benefit cost rate.]

      7.  The executive director shall assign contribution rates less than 2.7 percent for the calendar year 1965 as nearly as may be in accordance with the provisions of subsections 1 to 6, inclusive. On November 30, 1965, and on November 30 of each year thereafter the executive director shall determine:

      (a) The highest of the unemployment risk ratios experienced in the 109 consecutive 12-month periods in the 10 years ending on the computation date; and

      (b) The potential annual number of beneficiaries found by multiplying the highest unemployment risk ratio by the average monthly number of covered workers in employment as shown on the employment security department records for the 12 months ending on the computation date; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 113 (Chapter 75, SB 72)ê

      (d) The potential maximum annual benefits payable found by multiplying the potential annual number of weeks of benefits payable by the average payment made to beneficiaries for weeks of total unemployment in the 12 months ending on November 30. Contribution rates less than 2.7 percent shall not be assigned for the calendar year 1966 or for any calendar year thereafter if the executive director finds on November 30 preceding any such year that the balance in the unemployment compensation fund is less than 1 1/2 times the potential maximum annual benefits payable.

      8.  The executive director, for the calendar year 1960 and for each calendar year thereafter, shall issue an individual statement, itemizing benefits charged during the 12-month period ending on the computation date, total benefit charges, total contributions paid, reserve balance and the rate of contributions to apply for such calendar year, for each employer whose account is in active status on the records of the employment security department on January 1 of each year and whose account is chargeable with benefit payments on the computation date of such year.

      [8.]9.  The executive director shall, by regulation, prescribe the conditions for a transfer of the experience record of an employer to an employer who has acquired the entire or a severable part of the organization, trade or business or substantially all of the assets thereof.

      [9.]10.  Whenever an employer has paid no wages in employment for a period of 8 consecutive calendar quarters following the last calendar quarter in which he paid wages for employment, the executive director shall terminate his experience rating account, and such account shall not thereafter be used in any rate computation.

      Sec. 9.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

      1.  Every noncorporate licensee and applicant for a license under this chapter who desires to have such license issued under a fictitious name shall file with the commissioner a certified copy of both the entry of the county clerk and the affidavit made pursuant to the provisions of chapter 602 of NRS, and every corporate licensee and applicant shall file with the commissioner in writing the true name of the corporation and also all fictitious names under which it conducts or intends to conduct its business, and after licensing every licensee shall file with the commissioner any change in or discontinuance of such names. The commissioner may in writing disapprove the use of any true or fictitious name (other than the bona fide natural name of an individual) by any licensee on any of the following grounds:

This paragraph shall not prevent a licensee who has lawfully purchased or succeeded to the business or businesses of other licensees from using for each such business not more than two additional names, true or fictitious, consisting of names used by his predecessors in the conduct of such businesses.

      2.  A licensee may not use a true or fictitious name after being notified by the commissioner in writing that such use is contrary to this section.

section. If the commissioner determines that there are facts in mitigation in connection with the continued use of such name he may permit its use for a specified reasonable period of time if in connection therewith he imposes such conditions as will protect the public and achieve the purposes of this section. Any such permission and any such conditions shall be written.

      3.  The grounds specified in paragraphs (a), (c) and (d) of subsection 1 shall not be applicable to the true name of any organization licensee which on July 1, 1965, holds under such name any type of license issued under this chapter, nor to any fictitious name in use on July 1, 1965, by any individual or organization holding any type of license issued under this chapter, if such fictitious name is filed with the commissioner on or before July 1, 1965.

      2.  Insofar as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the City, without limitation as to rate or amount (except for the designated constitutional limitation) and without regard to any statutory limitation now or hereafter existing.

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 153 (Chapter 104, AB 247)ê

 

      3.  It shall be the duty of the Council, of the board of county commissioners of Lyon County, and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes in the City, annually in due season to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as the same become due.

[Approved March 5, 1965]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The city council of the city of Yerington, in the County of Lyon and State of Nevada (herein sometimes designated as the “Council,” the “City,” and the “State,” respectively), upon behalf and in the name of the City, and in addition the powers elsewhere conferred upon the City, is hereby authorized and empowered, subject to the provisions of section 2 of this act:

      1.  To improve, extend, develop, and better the City’s water system, including without limitation, the acquisition by purchase, construction, reconstruction, lease, gift, transfer, assignment, option to purchase, or grant from the United States of America, or any agency, department, instrumentality, or corporation thereof, the State, or any agency or political subdivision thereof, or any other corporation or other person, endowment, bequest, devise, installation, condemnation, or other means of acquirement, alteration, extension, development, betterment, repair, or other improvement of distribution and storage reservoirs, deep and shallow wells, pumping and gauging stations, inlets, tunnels, flumes, conduits, canals, ditches, pipes, mains, collection, transmission and distribution lines, infiltration galleries, hydrants, engines, valves, pumps, meters, filtration, treatment and purification plants and works, rights in water, interests in water structures and other facilities for water collection, transportation, treatment, purification, and distribution, and other property, real or personal, including without limitation easements and other rights-of-way, for providing a supply of raw or potable water, for irrigation, industrial, commercial, residential, culinary, or domestic use, and buildings, furnishings, apparatus, and sites therefor, lines, machinery, and equipment (or any combination thereof), and appurtenances (herein sometimes designated as the “Project”); and

 

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 156 (Chapter 105, AB 248)ê

 

appurtenances (herein sometimes designated as the “Project”); and

      2.  To defray wholly or in part the cost of the Project by the issuance of the City’s negotiable, coupon, general obligation bonds (herein sometimes designated as the “bonds”), in the aggregate principal amount of not exceeding $250,000.00, or such lessor amount as the Council shall determine to be necessary or desirable therefor.

      Sec. 2.  The Council may submit at one time or from time to time a question of issuing any such bonds to the electors qualified to vote thereon, at a special, regular municipal, primary, or general election, held in accordance with NRS 350.010 to 350.070, inclusive, all laws amendatory thereof, and the laws of the State relating to elections insofar as the same can be made applicable. If a majority of each of the white ballots and the colored ballots cast on the question so submitted is in favor of the issuance of the bonds, the proposal to issue them shall have carried, and the Council may thereafter proceed to issue the bonds designated in the proposal in accordance with the provisions of this act. If a majority of either color of ballots or of both the white ballots and the colored ballots cast on the question so submitted is against the issuance of the bonds, then such proposal shall have failed, and the Council shall be without power to issue any of the bonds designated in the proposal. The submission of a question of issuing bonds as herein provided shall not prevent or prohibit the submission of the same or a similar question at a subsequent election called for that purpose pursuant to the provisions of this act or as otherwise authorized by law.

      Sec. 3.  1.  The bonds shall be sold at public sale in accordance with NRS 350.120 to 350.160, inclusive, or at private sale, as the Council may determine, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest thereon, or, at the option of the Council, below par at a discount of not exceeding 6 percent of the principal amount thereof and at a price which will not result in a net interest cost to the City of more than 6 percent per annum computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values including as a part of such cost the amount of discount permitted by the Council on the sale of the bonds.

      2.  No discount (except as herein otherwise provided) or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any bond sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly.

      3.  The Council may employ legal, fiscal, engineering and other expert services in connection with the Project and the authorization, issuance and sale of the bonds.

      4.  Any accrued interest and any premium shall be applied to the payment of the interest on or the principal of the bonds, or both interest and principal, or shall be placed in a reserve fund to be accumulated and maintained to secure additionally the payment of such interest or principal, or both such interest and principal. Otherwise the bond proceeds shall be used to defray the cost of the Project, which cost, at the option of the Council, may include all or any part of the incidental costs appertaining to the Project, including without limiting the generality of the foregoing, preliminary expenses advanced by the City from funds available for use therefor in the making of surveys, preliminary plans, estimates of cost, other preliminaries, the costs of appraising, printing, employing engineers, architects, fiscal agents, attorneys at law, clerical help, other agents or employees, the costs of making, publishing, posting, mailing and otherwise giving any notice in connection with any bond election, any bond sale, or otherwise appertaining to the Project, the taking of options, the issuance of bonds, the capitalization with bond proceeds of any sale discount, or interest on the bonds for any reasonable period, or both, the acquisition of properties by condemnation, or otherwise, and all other expenses necessary or desirable and appertaining to the Project, as estimated or otherwise ascertained by the Council.

      5.  Any unexpended balance of bond proceeds remaining after the completion of the Project shall be paid immediately into a fund created for the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds and shall be used therefor, subject to the provisions as to the times and methods for their payment as stated in the bonds and in the proceedings authorizing their issuance.

      6.  The validity of the bonds shall not be dependent on nor be affected by the validity or regularity of any proceedings relating to the Project.

      (a) Be of convenient denominations;

      (b) Be negotiable in form and payable to bearer, subject to any provisions for their registration for payment;

      (e) Have interest coupons attached in such manner or otherwise appertain to the bonds so that the coupons can be presented for payment of the installments of interest without injury to or presentation of the bonds (unless the bonds be registered for payment as to both principal and interest and there thus be no coupons), each of which coupons shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it appertains;

principal and interest and there thus be no coupons), each of which coupons shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it appertains;

      (f) Be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without or both within and without the State, as may be provided by the Council; and

      (g) Be printed at such place within or without the State, as the Council may determine.

      2.  Any ordinance authorizing the issuance of any bond series may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to their respective maturities, upon such terms, in such order, or by lot, or otherwise, and upon the payment of such premium, if any, not exceeding 6 percent of the principal amount of each bond so redeemed, as the Council may determine and state in the ordinance.

      3.  Bonds may be issued with privileges for registration for payment as to principal alone, or both principal and interest, at any bondholder’s option, or for registration for payment only in either manner designated; and where interest accruing on the bonds is not represented by interest coupons, the bonds may provide for the endorsing of payments of interest thereon or for reconverting the bonds into coupon bonds, or both for such endorsement and such reconversion.

      4.  The bonds generally shall be issued in such manner, in such form, with such provisions for conversion into bonds of other denominations, with such recitals, terms, covenants and conditions, and with such other details, as may be provided by the Council in the ordinance or ordinances authorizing the bonds, except as herein otherwise provided.

      5.  Pending preparations of the definitive bonds, temporary bonds in such form and with such provisions as the Council may determine may be issued.

      6.  Subject to the payment provisions herein expressly provided, the bonds, any interest coupons appertaining thereto, and any temporary bonds shall be fully negotiable within the meaning of and for all the purposes of the Negotiable Instruments Law.

      7.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Council in any proceedings authorizing bonds hereunder:

      (a) May provide for the initial issuance of one or more bonds (in this subsection 7 called “bond”) aggregating the amount of the entire issue or any portion thereof;

      (b) May make such provision for installment payments of the principal amount of any such bond as it may consider desirable, and for the endorsing of payments of principal on such bond;

      (c) May provide for the making of any such bond payable to bearer or otherwise, registrable for payment as elsewhere provided herein, and where interest accruing thereon is not represented by interest coupons, for the endorsing of payments of interest on such bond; and

      (d) May make provision in any such proceedings for the manner and circumstances in and under which any such bond may in the future, at the request of the holder thereof, be converted into bonds of smaller denominations, which bonds of smaller denominations may in turn be either coupon bonds, or bonds registered for payment, or coupon bonds with provisions for registration for payment.

ê1965 Statutes of Nevada, Page 159 (Chapter 105, AB 248)ê

 

      8.  In case any outstanding bond shall become mutilated, or be destroyed, stolen or lost, the City may authenticate and deliver a new bond (with appropriate coupons attached unless registered for payment as to interest) of like tenor, number and amount as the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, so mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost:

      (a) In exchange and substitution for such mutilated bond and appurtenant coupons, if any; or

      (b) In lieu of and substitution for the bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, destroyed, stolen or lost:

             (1) Upon filing with the City evidence satisfactory to the Council that such bond and appurtenant coupons, if any, have been destroyed, stolen or lost, and proof of ownership thereof; and

             (2) Upon furnishing the City with indemnity satisfactory to the Council,

upon complying with such reasonable regulations as the Council may prescribe, and upon the payment of such expenses as the City may incur in connection therewith.

      9.  The City may also reissue any outstanding bond (upon such terms and conditions as the Council and the holder thereof, or, if registered for payment to other than bearer, the registered owner thereof, may determine) which shall not have become mutilated, destroyed, stolen or lost, regardless of whether so provided in any proceedings authorizing its issuance.

      10.  Any bond shall be executed in the name of and on behalf of the City, signed by the mayor of the City, countersigned by the city treasurer, with the seal of the City affixed thereto, and attested by the city clerk.

      11.  Any interest coupons shall be payable to bearer and shall bear the original or facsimile signature of the city treasurer.

      12.  Any bond may be executed as provided in the Uniform Facsimile Signatures of Public Officials Act. (A compliance therewith is not a condition precedent to the execution of any coupon with a facsimile signature.)

      13.  The bonds and coupons, bearing the signatures of the officers in office at the time of the signing thereof, shall be the valid and binding obligations of the City, notwithstanding that before the delivery thereof and payment therefor, any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to fill their respective offices.

      14.  Any officer authorized or permitted to sign any bond or coupons, at the time of its execution and of the execution of a signature certificate, may adopt as and for his own facsimile signature the facsimile signature of his predecessor in office in the event that such facsimile signature appears upon the bond or coupons appertaining thereto, or upon both the bond and such coupons.

      Sec. 7.  Bonds issued hereunder shall be a debt of the City, and the City shall thereby pledge its full faith and credit for their payment.

      Sec. 8.  1.  The bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions hereof shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all of the taxable property in the City, including the net proceeds of mines.

      2.  Insofar as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the City, without limitation as to rate or amount (except for the designated constitutional limitation) and without regard to any statutory limitation now or hereafter existing.
