Such bonds shall be given at such time as is established by the authority but in any event prior to the issuance of any revenue bonds. The authority may require any officers or employees to file surety bonds including a blanket bond as provided in section 3.06 of the Revised Code.

The fees for such bonds shall be paid from authority funds or the authority may reimburse any such fees to members, officers, or employees who have paid them.
