428A.16 BONDS.

At any time after a contract for the construction of all or part of an improvement authorized under sections 428A.11 to 428A.20 has been entered into or the work has been ordered, the implementing entity may issue obligations in the amount it deems necessary to defray in whole or in part the expense incurred and estimated to be incurred in making the improvement, including every item of cost from inception to completion and all fees and expenses incurred in connection with the improvement or the financing.

The obligations are payable primarily out of the proceeds of the fees imposed under section 428A.14, or from any other special assessments or revenues available to be pledged for their payment under charter or statutory authority, or from two or more of those sources. The governing body of the city, or if the governing bodies are the same or consist of identical membership, the authority may, by resolution adopted prior to the sale of obligations, pledge the full faith, credit, and taxing power of the city to bonds issued by it to ensure payment of the principal and interest if the proceeds of the fees in the area are insufficient to pay the principal and interest. The obligations must be issued in accordance with chapter 475, except that an election is not required, and the amount of the obligations are not included in determination of the net debt of the city under the provisions of any law or charter limiting debt.
