7. If a levy is made or money is received from any other source or for any other purpose, the money shall be kept in a separate fund so designated as to identify the purpose for which the money was levied or received.

C. The district treasurer shall pay from the bond fund the principal of bonds of the district at the time and place specified therein and shall pay from the interest fund the interest on bonds of the district at the time and place specified therein. The district treasurer shall pay from all of the other funds, except the call and prepayment fund, upon warrants of the district signed by the president and countersigned by the secretary of the district.
