The bonds and coupons shall be signed by the chairman of the board of county commissioners and countersigned by the treasurer of the county, and the bonds shall be authenticated by the official seal of the county.

The board of county commissioners may provide for the registration of the bonds for payment as to principal or interest, or both, and may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to maturity, upon such terms and upon the payment of such premium, if any, as may be determined by the board in the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds.

In any year in which the total taxes levied against the taxable property in the county by all overlapping units therein may exceed the limitation of 5 cents on the dollar imposed by section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any or all such units, the reduction so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, and the taxes levied hereafter for the payment of bonded indebtedness shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of section 2 of article 10. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent the county from applying other funds that may be in the treasury and available for that purpose to the payment of such interest and principal as the same respectively mature, and upon such payments the levy or levies therefor provided may thereupon to that extent be diminished.

      Sec. 5.  The ordinance or ordinances providing for the issuance of such bonds may state that the bonds shall contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to this act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and the regularity of their issuance.

      Sec. 6.  This act, without reference to other statutes of the state or to action heretofore taken by the county or city officers, shall constitute full authority for the authorization and issuance of bonds hereunder, except as herein otherwise provided. The bonds may be issued, and the hospital acquired and maintained, without an election and without adherence to NRS 450.010 to 450.060, and 450.270 to 450.380, all inclusive, and no other act or law with regard to the authorization or issuance of bonds that in any way impedes or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done, shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this act shall be in addition to and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this act shall not affect the powers conferred by, any other law. No part of this act shall repeal or affect any other law or any part thereof, it being intended that this act shall provide a separate method of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one.

[Approved February 13, 1960]

 

      Whereas, Pursuant to chapter 231, Statutes of Nevada 1959, there was submitted at the municipal general election held in the city of Sparks, Washoe County, Nevada, on Tuesday, the 2nd day of June, 1959, to and approved by the qualified electors thereof a question to authorize the city of Sparks to issue its negotiable coupon bonds in the aggregate principal amount of not exceeding $275,000, or such lesser amount as may be necessary, for the purpose of defraying wholly or in part the cost of improving, extending and bettering the municipal sewer system to consist of a sewage collection system and a sewage disposal plant, the bonds to bear interest at a rate of not more than 5 percent per annum, and if such bonds are general obligation bonds to mature serially commencing not later than 3 years and ending not later than 30 years from their date, and if such bonds are revenue bonds to mature serially commencing not later than 3 years and ending not later than 40 years from their date; and

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

      (c) Revenue bonds payable solely from the revenues to be derived from the operation of the municipal sewer system.

The bonds shall be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without the State of Nevada as may be provided by the city council; and the ordinance authorizing the issuance of any series may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to maturity, upon such terms, in such order, and upon the payment of such premium, if any, as the city council may determine and state therein. The bonds, unless they be registered for payment as to principal and interest, shall have interest coupons attached in such manner that they can be removed upon the payment of the installments of interest without injury to the bonds. Each coupon shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it is attached. The bonds and coupons shall be signed by the mayor of the city, and countersigned by the city treasurer; and the bonds shall also be signed and attested by the city clerk with the official seal of the city affixed thereto. Facsimile signatures of the mayor and city treasurer may be used on the coupons. The bonds shall otherwise be in such form and shall be printed at such place, within or without the State of Nevada, as may be determined by the ordinance, subject, however, to the following limitations and restrictions:

      Sec. 6.  The revenue bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this act shall be payable solely from the net revenues to be derived from the operation of the municipal sewer system, and shall be secured by a pledge of all or a specified part of the net revenues.

to be derived from the operation of the municipal sewer system, and shall be secured by a pledge of all or a specified part of the net revenues. Each such revenue bond shall recite in substance that the principal thereof, including the interest thereon, is payable from the revenues pledged to the payment thereof and does not constitute a debt of the city of Sparks within the meaning of any constitutional, statutory or charter limitations.

      Sec. 7.  In order to insure the payment of the revenue bonds of the city of Sparks or of the general obligation bonds of the city of Sparks, the payment of which is additionally secured by a pledge of the revenues of the municipal sewer system, the city council of the city of Sparks shall establish and maintain, and from time to time may revise, a schedule or schedules of fees, rates and charges for services rendered by or through the municipal sewer system, both within and without the corporate limits of the city of Sparks, in an amount sufficient for that purpose and also sufficient to discharge any covenant in the proceedings of the city council of the city of Sparks authorizing the issuance of any bonds, including any covenant for the establishment of reasonable reserve funds.

      Sec. 8.  The ordinance or ordinances providing for the issuance of such bonds may state that the bonds may contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to this act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and the regularity of their issuance. Such ordinance or ordinances may also contain such other covenants and provisions for the protection of the bondholders as are deemed proper and appropriate by the city council, including but not necessarily limited to any of the covenants set forth in NRS 350.420.

      Sec. 9.  This act, without reference to other statutes of the state, shall constitute full authority for the authorization and issuance of bonds hereunder, except as herein otherwise specifically provided. No other act or law with regard to the authorization or issuance of bonds that in any way impedes or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this act shall be in addition and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this act shall not affect the powers conferred by any other law. No part of this act shall repeal or affect any other law or part thereof, except for the repeal of chapter 231, Statutes of Nevada 1959, which is superseded hereby, it being intended that this act shall provide a separate method of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one.

      Sec. 10.  Bonds issued under the provisions of this act, their transfer, and the income therefrom, shall forever be and remain free and exempt from taxation by the State of Nevada or any subdivision thereof.

      Sec. 11.  It shall be legal for the State of Nevada and any of its agencies, departments or political subdivisions, or any political or public corporation, or any instrumentality of the State of Nevada, to invest funds or moneys in their custody in any of the bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this act.

      5.  Hold hearings for the purpose of determining whether any of the provisions of this chapter have been violated. Any such hearing may be held before the council at its discretion. Any administrative action taken by the department as a result of such hearings shall be taken only upon the recommendation of the council.

      6.  Contract with independent scientific consultants for specialized services and advice.

      Sec. 9.  Upon the written request of the department, delivered personally or by registered mail, any person or association engaged or representing himself or itself as engaged in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of cancer shall furnish the department with such sample as the department may require of any drug, medicine, compound or device used or prescribed by such person or association, in the treatment or cure of cancer, and shall specify the formula of any such drug or compound used and name all ingredients by their common or usual name, and shall, upon like request by the department, furnish such necessary information as the department may request as to the composition and method of preparation of and the use to which any such drug, compound or device is being put by such person or association.

      Sec. 10.  Following an investigation by the department of the content or composition of any drug, medicine, compound or device used by any person or association in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of cancer, the department, after receiving the recommendations of the council, shall direct that any such person or association shall, prior to prescribing, recommending or making use of any such drug, medicine, compound or device in the treatment of any person, furnish such person with a statement as to the nature and content of such drug, medicine, compound or device.

      Sec. 12.  After investigation or testing by the department of the content or composition of any drug, medicine, compound or device used by any person or association in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of cancer, the department, upon the recommendation of the council, may direct that such person or association cease and desist any further prescribing, recommending or use of any such drug, medicine, compound or device or substantially similar drugs, medicines, compounds or devices in the diagnosis or treatment of cancer.

      Sec. 13.  In the investigation or testing required by this chapter to determine the value of any drug, medicine, compound or device used in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of cancer, the department shall, as it deems necessary or advisable, utilize the facilities and findings of its own laboratories or other appropriate laboratories within the state, or the facilities and findings of the Federal Government, including the National Cancer Institute.

      Sec. 4.  Each seller shall print the words “Private Bulk Storage Only” together with a designating number in a conspicuous place on all his storage facilities, which words and number shall be maintained thereon while grain is kept in private bulk storage therein.

Name of seller.........................................................................................................

Name of original buyer..........................................................................................

Address of seller....................................................................................................

      Sec. 10.  No delivery may be made of any portion of the grain so privately stored unless the bill of sale therefor is presented to the seller or other person in charge of the storage facility, and the quantity of such grain is plainly endorsed upon the bill of sale. The provisions of this section do not apply to a consignment of the grain by the seller to the buyer upon the expiration of the time for delivery specified in the bill of sale.

      Sec. 11.  The presentment of the bill of sale by the holder thereof to the seller creates a presumption that the person presenting it is entitled to delivery of the grain described therein unless the seller has knowledge of facts or circumstances sufficient to place him on notice that the possession of the instrument by such person is unlawful.

      Sec. 12.  If any grain in private bulk storage is not removed or delivered on or before the original date of delivery specified in the bill of sale and the notice of sale, the seller may continue to store such grain to the order of the buyer upon such terms as may be agreed upon.

      Sec. 13.  The storage of grain pursuant to the provisions of this chapter does not constitute the storer a warehouseman or storer of goods for hire, and no storage facility constitutes a warehouse or public place of storage.

      Sec. 14.  1.  A seller who willfully fails to comply with the requirements of notice and posting as provided for in sections 4 and 9 of this chapter is guilty of a misdemeanor.

      2.  No sale of grain may be invalidated by reason of any irregularity in connection with such notice or posting.

      Sec. 15.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

[Approved March 8, 1960]

 

      Whereas, Pursuant to NRS 244.335, as amended by chapter 197, Statutes of Nevada 1959, the board of county commissioners of each of the several counties of the State of Nevada has the power and jurisdiction in the county:

      (1) To regulate all character of lawful trades, callings, industries, occupations, professions and business conducted in their respective counties, outside of the limits of incorporated cities and towns; and

      (2) To fix, impose and collect a license tax for revenue or for regulation, or for both revenue and regulation, on such trades, callings, industries, occupations, professions and business; and

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Chapter 268 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto the provisions set forth as sections 2 to 7, inclusive, of this act.

      Sec. 3.  The city so collecting such a county license tax may retain from time to time the amounts equal to the reasonable costs of so collecting such tax not exceeding for any collection period an amount equal to 10 percent of the gross revenues collected therefrom.

      Sec. 4.  Each such city or town is hereby charged with the duty of effecting the enforcement of the provisions of sections 2 to 7, inclusive, of this act, and is hereby authorized and empowered to prescribe, adopt and enforce rules and regulations relating to the administration and enforcement thereof. The municipality may employ such accountants, auditors, investigators, assistants and clerks as it may deem necessary for the efficient administration of such sections, and may fix their compensation and provide for their necessary expenses.

      Sec. 5.  The municipality shall cause to be kept proper records of all license taxes which become due or which are collected, or both, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, records of delinquent taxes, interest thereon and penalties therefrom, which records shall be deemed confidential and shall not be revealed in whole or in part to anyone except in the necessary administration of sections 2 to 7, inclusive, of this act or as otherwise provided by law.

Assembly Bill No. 158–Washoe County Delegation

CHAPTER 99

AN ACT authorizing Washoe County, State of Nevada, to enlarge, repair, reconstruct, improve, extend or better the county courthouse, to equip and furnish the same and to acquire suitable grounds therefor; concerning the issuance of bonds therefor in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $500,000 and the levy of taxes in connection therewith; prescribing other details and conditions concerning such bonds and such taxes; and concerning other matters properly relating thereto.

 

[Approved March 8, 1960]

 

      Whereas, Pursuant to the provisions of section 1 of chapter 30, Statutes of Nevada 1957, the board of county commissioners of Washoe County, State of Nevada, was authorized and empowered to establish, construct, otherwise acquire, reconstruct, improve, extend or better either a county courthouse or jail, or both, and improvements incidental thereto, to equip and furnish the same, to acquire a suitable site or grounds therefor, and to issue general obligation bonds therefor in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000; and

      Whereas, Approximately $1,400,000 of the $2,000,000 proceeds from the sale of such authorized general obligation bonds will be expended for the establishment, construction and improvement of a jail, thus leaving approximately $600,000 available for the enlargement, repair and reconstruction of the county courthouse; and

ê1960 Statutes of Nevada, Page 117 (Chapter 99, AB 158)ê

 

      Whereas, The cost of the proposed enlargement, repair and reconstruction of the county courthouse will be $1,100,000, thus necessitating the issuance of an additional $500,000 of general obligation bonds by the board of county commissioners; now, therefore,

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The board of county commissioners of Washoe County, State of Nevada, is hereby authorized and empowered, in addition to powers elsewhere conferred upon the board, to enlarge, repair, reconstruct, improve, extend or better the county courthouse, to equip and furnish the same, and to acquire a suitable site or grounds therefor, and to defray the cost thereof in part by the issuance of general obligation bonds in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $500,000. (Such building, incidental improvements, equipment, furnishings, sites and grounds are hereinafter sometimes designated as the facilities.)

      Sec. 2.  Each series of bonds shall be authorized by ordinance. The bonds shall be of convenient denominations, shall be negotiable in form, but may provide for their registration for payment either as to principal alone, or as to both principal and interest, shall be issued in one or more series, shall mature serially in regular numerical order at annual or other designated intervals, and in substantially equal amounts of principal, or in substantially equal amounts of principal and interest, insofar as practicable, but the first or last installment of principal, or both, may be for greater or lesser amounts than required by either of the aforesaid limitations, or at the option of the board of county commissioners, the bonds may mature serially without limitation as to the manner they mature, commencing not later than 3 years from the date of the bonds and ending not more than 20 years therefrom, and shall bear interest at a rate or rates of not more than 5 percent per annum, the interest on each bond to be payable annually or semiannually, except that the first coupon on any bond may represent interest for any period not in excess of 1 year. The bonds shall be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without the State of Nevada, as may be provided by the board; and the ordinance authorizing the issuance of any series may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to maturity, upon such terms, in such order, and upon the payment of such premium, if any, as the board may determine and state therein. The bonds, unless they be registered for payment as to principal and interest, shall have interest coupons attached in such manner that they can be removed upon the payment of the installments of interest without injury to the bonds. Each coupon shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it is attached. The bonds and coupons shall be signed by the chairman of the board of county commissioners and countersigned by the county treasurer; and the bonds shall also be signed and attested by the county clerk with the official seal of the county affixed thereto.


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

ê1960 Statutes of Nevada, Page 118 (Chapter 99, AB 158)ê

 

county clerk with the official seal of the county affixed thereto. Facsimile signatures of the chairman and county treasurer may be used on the coupons. The bonds shall otherwise be in such form and shall be printed at such place, within or without the State of Nevada, as may be determined by the board.

      Sec. 3.  The board of county commissioners is hereby authorized to sell such bonds at one time, or from time to time, as the board may determine, at public sale in accordance with NRS 350.120 to 350.160, inclusive, or at private sale, and for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest to the date of delivery. No discount or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any such sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly, provided, that the board may employ legal, fiscal, engineering and other expert services in connection with the facilities to the acquired as herein authorized and in connection with the authorization, issuance and sale of the bonds.

      Sec. 4.  The general obligation bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions of this act shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all the taxable property in the county, including the net proceeds of mines. Insofar as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, the bonds shall be payable both as to principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, to be levied on all such taxable property within the boundaries of the county, and without regard to any statutory limitations now or hereafter existing. It shall be the duty of the board, and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes therein, annually in due season to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances of probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as the same becomes due. In any year in which the total taxes levied against the property in the county by all overlapping units therein may exceed the limitation of 5 cents on the dollar imposed by section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any or all such units, the reductions so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, and the taxes levied for the payment of such bonded indebtedness shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of section 2 of article 10. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent the county from applying other funds that may be in the treasury and available for that purpose to the payment of the interest and principal as the same respectively mature, and upon such payments the levy or levies therefor provided may thereupon to that extent be diminished.

      Sec. 5.  The ordinance or ordinances providing for the issuance of such bonds may state that the bonds may contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to this act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and the regularity of their issuance.


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

ê1960 Statutes of Nevada, Page 119 (Chapter 99, AB 158)ê

 

      Sec. 6.  This act, without reference to other statutes of the state, shall constitute full authority for the authorization and issuance of bonds hereunder, except as herein otherwise specifically provided. No other act or law with regard to the authorization or issuance of bonds that in any way impedes or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this act shall be in addition and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this act shall not affect the powers conferred by, any other law. No part of this act shall repeal or affect any other law or part thereof, it being intended that this act shall provide a separate method of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one.

      Sec. 7.  Bonds issued under the provisions of this act, their transfer, and the income therefrom, shall forever be and remain free and exempt from taxation by the State of Nevada or any subdivision thereof.

      Sec. 8.  It shall be legal for the State of Nevada and any of its agencies, departments or political subdivisions, or any political or public corporation, or any instrumentality of the State of Nevada, to invest funds or moneys in their custody in any of the bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this act.

      Sec. 9.  This being necessary to secure and preserve the public health, safety, convenience and welfare of the people of the State of Nevada, it shall be liberally construed to effect its purpose.

      Sec. 10.  If any section, paragraph, clause or provision of this act shall for any reason be held to be invalid or unenforcible, the invalidity or unenforcibility of such section, paragraph, clause or provision shall not affect any of the remaining provisions of this act.
