206.59 PAYMENT FOR VOTING SYSTEMS.
Payment for an electronic voting system may be provided for in the manner deemed in
the best interests of the political division adopting and purchasing it. A municipality or county
may make payment by appropriating money from the general fund, by levying a tax in the
same manner as other taxes are levied, or by issuing and selling bonds or other certificates of
indebtedness, which must be a charge upon the municipality or county adopting and purchasing
the electronic voting system. Bonds or other certificates of indebtedness may be issued by a
majority vote of the governing body of the municipality or county adopting and purchasing an
electronic voting system, notwithstanding any contrary provision contained in any home rule
charter or law of this state.
The bonds or certificates of indebtedness issued may bear interest at a rate not exceeding
the rate provided in section
and may be made payable at a time not exceeding 20 years
from the date of issue, as determined by the resolution or ordinance authorizing the issue. The
bonds or certificates of indebtedness may be issued exclusive of and in addition to any limit
of indebtedness fixed by the charter of a municipality, or by laws governing a municipality or
county, but the bonds or certificates of indebtedness may not be issued or sold at less than par and
accrued interest on them.
