      Section1.  The board of county commissioners of Mineral County, State of Nevada, is hereby authorized and empowered, in addition to powers elsewhere conferred upon the board, to erect, build and construct a new addition or additions to the Mount Grant General Hospital, and to equip and furnish the same, and to defray the cost thereof in part by the issuance of general obligation bonds in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $30,000. (Such new addition or additions, equipment and furnishings are hereafter sometimes designated as the facilities.) The proceeds of such bond issue shall be used only for the purpose of paying for the cost in part of erecting, building and constructing a new addition or additions to the Mount Grant General Hospital and equipping and furnishing the same when and if a sum not less than $50,000 is allocated and committed by the United States Government for such purposes and a sum not less than $50,000 is provided for the Mount Grant General Hospital for such purposes from the state public hospital construction assistance fund pursuant to the provisions of NRS 449.250 to 449.430, inclusive.

If a majority of either the white ballots or the colored ballots cast on the question so submitted is against the issuance of the bonds, then such proposal shall have failed, and the board shall be without power to issue the bonds. 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, but in the event the board elects to submit the question of issuing the bonds to the electors, and in the event the electors fail to approve the issuance thereof, the authority otherwise conferred by this act on the board to issue bonds without the approval of the electors shall terminate.


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

otherwise conferred by this act on the board to issue bonds without the approval of the electors shall terminate.

      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. 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 be 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.

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.

      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 is 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.


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

ê1960 Statutes of Nevada, Page 353 (Chapter 192, AB 232)ê

 

      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 unenforcibile, the invalidity or unenforcibility of such section, paragraph, clause or provision shall not affect any of the remaining provisions of this act.

      Sec.11.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

[Approved March 17, 1960]

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section1.  NRS 37.100 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      37.100  1.  The plaintiff may move the court or a judge thereof, at any time after the commencement of suit, on notice for such time as the court or judge may direct to the defendant, if he is a resident of the county, or has appeared in the action, otherwise by serving a notice directed to him on the clerk of the court, for an order permitting the plaintiff to occupy the premises sought to be condemned, pending the entry of judgment, and to do such work thereon as may be required for the easement, fee, or property rights sought, according to its nature.

      2.  The court or a judge thereof shall take proof, by affidavit or otherwise, of the value of the premises sought to be condemned and of the damages which will accrue from the condemnation, and of the reasons for requiring a speedy occupation, and shall grant or refuse the motion according to the equity of the case and the relative damages which may accrue to the parties.

      3.  If the motion is granted, the court or judge shall require the plaintiff to execute and file in court a bond to the defendant, with sureties, to be approved by the court or judge in a penal sum to be fixed by the court or judge, not less than double the value of the premises sought to be condemned and the damages which will ensue from condemnation and occupation, as the same may appear to the court or judge on the hearing, and conditioned to pay the adjudged value of the premises and all damages, in case the property is condemned, and to pay all damages arising from occupation before judgment in case the premises are not condemned, and all costs adjudged to the defendant in the action.

condemnation and occupation, as the same may appear to the court or judge on the hearing, and conditioned to pay the adjudged value of the premises and all damages, in case the property is condemned, and to pay all damages arising from occupation before judgment in case the premises are not condemned, and all costs adjudged to the defendant in the action. The sureties shall justify before the court or judge, after a reasonable notice to the defendant of the time and place of justification. [The amounts fixed shall be for the purpose of the motion only, and shall not be admissible in evidence on final hearing.]

      4.  In lieu of a bond the plaintiff, with the consent of the court, may deposit with the clerk of the court a sum equal to the value of the premises plus damages, as appraised by the plaintiff. Upon application of the defendant and upon notice to all parties, the court or judge may order the money deposited with the clerk of the court or any part thereof to be paid to the defendant. If the amount of the compensation awarded upon judgment is less than the sum deposited and paid to the defendant, the court shall enter judgment in favor of the plaintiff and against the defendant for the amount of the excess. Application by the defendant to the court for withdrawal of part or all of the money deposited and the payment of such money to the defendant shall not prejudice the right of the defendant to contest the amount of compensation to be finally awarded. The receipt by the defendant of a part or all of the money deposited shall be conditioned upon the waiver of all defenses except those relating to the amount of compensation.

      5.  The amount of the penal bond or the deposit shall be for the purpose of the motion only and shall not be admissible in evidence on final hearing.

      6.  The court or judge may also restrain the defendant from hindering or interfering with the occupation of the premises and the doing thereon of the work required for the easement, fee, or property rights.

      [5] 7.  The provisions of this section requiring the execution and filing of a bond shall not apply in any action or proceeding in which the State of Nevada is the plaintiff, but the public faith and credit of the State of Nevada is hereby pledged as security in lieu of the bond.

      Sec.2.  NRS 37.170 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      37.170  1.  At any time after the entry of judgment, or pending an appeal by either party from the judgment to the supreme court, whenever the plaintiff shall have paid into court for the defendant the full amount of the judgment, and such further sum as may be required by the court as a fund to pay any further damages and costs that may be recovered in the proceedings, as well as all damages that may be sustained by the defendant, if for any cause the property shall not be finally taken for public use, the district court in which the proceeding was tried may, upon motion of the plaintiff, authorize the plaintiff, if already in possession, to continue therein, and if not, then to take possession of and use the property during the pendency of and until the final conclusion of the litigation, and may, if necessary, stay all actions and proceedings against the plaintiff on account thereof.

ê1960 Statutes of Nevada, Page 421 (Chapter 239, SB 116)ê

 

the final conclusion of the litigation, and may, if necessary, stay all actions and proceedings against the plaintiff on account thereof.

      2.  The defendant, who is entitled to the money paid into court for him upon any judgment, shall be entitled to demand and receive the same at any time thereafter upon obtaining an order therefor from the court. The court or judge thereof shall, upon application being made by such defendant [,] and notice to all parties, order and direct that the money so paid into court for him be delivered to him upon his filing a satisfaction of the judgment, or upon his filing a receipt therefor, and an abandonment of all defenses to the action or proceeding, except as to the amount of damages that he may be entitled to in the event that a new trial shall be granted. A payment to a defendant, as aforesaid, shall be held to be an abandonment by such defendant of all defenses interposed by him, excepting his claim for greater compensation.

      3.  If the [plaintiff appeals from any final order or judgment of the court, any moneys paid into the court under the provisions of this section shall remain in the custody of such court pending final conclusion of litigation.] amount of the compensation awarded upon final judgment exceeds the sum paid into court, the court shall enter judgment against the plaintiff and in favor of the defendant. If the amount of the compensation awarded upon final judgment is less than the sum paid into court and paid to the defendant, the court shall enter judgment in favor of the plaintiff and against the defendant for the amount of the excess.

      Sec.3.  Chapter 37 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto a new section which shall read as follows:

      1.  The plaintiff shall pay interest on the final judgment at the rate of 7 percent per annum, but shall not pay interest on any sum deposited pursuant to the provisions of NRS 37.100 or 37.170.

      2.  Such interest shall run from the date of entry of judgment or, if the plaintiff has occupied the property of the defendant pursuant to the provisions of NRS 37.100, from the date of the order permitting occupancy, until the final judgment is satisfied.

      Sec.4.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.
