The board of trustees may, by resolution, sell such bonds or other interest-bearing obligations for cash and for a sum not less than their current market price. The managing authority of the university branch district may select a depository for the funds of a district, in the manner provided in sections 135.01 to 135.21, inclusive, of the Revised Code, upon the adoption of a resolution declaring such intent, which resolution shall be certified to the board of county commissioners and to the treasurer in the counties in which such district is located. In such event the board of trustees shall thereupon become the governing board for such district with respect to the deposit of funds of such district.
