the bonded indebtedness as proposed, bonds of the district for the
amount stated in the resolution calling the election shall be issued
and sold.


49167.  The validity of the bonds after their issuance shall not be
questioned in any court except on the ground that the provisions of
this chapter authorizing their issuance are unconstitutional, or that
the required hearing regarding the formation of the district was not
regularly held or proper notice of it was not given.




49168.  The district board shall prescribe, by resolution, the form
of the bonds and interest coupons. The bonds shall be payable at the
times and at a place to be fixed by the district board and designated
in the bonds, together with interest on all sums unpaid on that date
until all of the indebtedness has been paid. The term of the bonds
issued shall not exceed 40 years.



49169.  The bonds shall be issued in the denominations that the
district board determines, except that no bond shall be of a
denomination less than one hundred dollars ($100) or greater than one
thousand dollars ($1,000).
   The bonds shall be payable on the day and at the place fixed in

after the first year, be payable semiannually.



49170.  The bonds shall be signed by the chairperson of the district
board and countersigned by the county auditor, and the seal of the

as valid as if he or she had remained in office until the delivery of
the bonds.

at not less than par value, and the proceeds shall be placed in the
treasury of the county.

calling the bond election.

district, the district board may again submit to the voters the

first issue. All provisions of this chapter for the issuance and sale

state.


49178.  (a) An issue of bonds is hereby defined to be the aggregate
principal amount of all of the bonds authorized to be issued in
accordance with a proposal submitted to and approved by the electors
of the district, but no indebtedness is deemed to have been
contracted until bonds have been sold and delivered and then only to
the extent of the principal amount of the bonds so sold and
delivered.
   (b) The district board issuing bonds may, in its discretion,
divide the aggregate principal amount of the issue into two or more
divisions or series and fix different dates for the bonds of each
separate division or series. If any authorized issue is divided into
two or more divisions or series, the bonds of each division or series
may be made payable at the time or times fixed by the district
board, separate and distinct from the time or times for the payment
of bonds of any other division or series of the same issue.



49179.  Whenever a district has issued bonds, in its annual
statement to the board of supervisors as to the amount of money
needed for district purposes during the next ensuing fiscal year
