In the discretion of the board of trustees, any community authority bonds or notes or new community authority refunding bonds or notes issued under Chapter 349. of the Revised Code may be secured by a trust agreement or indenture of mortgage between the authority and a corporate trustee, which trustee may be any trust company or bank having the powers of a trust company within or without the state.
Any such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage may pledge or assign the income source of the authority to be received. Any such indenture of mortgage may include a mortgage of the land, and community facilities acquired or constructed with the proceeds of the bonds or notes secured thereby. Any such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage or any resolution providing for the issuance of such bonds or notes or any other related agreement may contain such provisions for protecting and enforcing the rights and remedies of the bondholders, noteholders, or guarantors as are reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including covenants setting forth the duties of the authority in relation to land acquisition, land development and the construction, improvement, maintenance, repair, operation, planning and insurance of the community facilities in connection with which such bonds or notes are authorized, the rentals, user fees, or other charges to be imposed for the use or services of any community facilities, the custody, safeguarding and application of all moneys, and provisions for the employment of consultants in connection with the construction or operation of any such community facilities. Any bank or trust company incorporated under the laws of this state which may act as depository of the proceeds of the bonds or notes or of income source may furnish such indemnifying bond or may pledge such securities as are required by the authority. Such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage or related agreement may set forth the rights and remedies of the bondholders, noteholders, guarantors, and of the trustee, and may restrict the individual right of action by bondholders, noteholders, and guarantors as is customary in trust agreements or trust indentures securing similar bonds or notes. Such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage or related agreement may contain such other provisions as the authority considers reasonable and proper for the security of the bondholders, noteholders, or guarantors. All expenses incurred in carrying out the provisions of any such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage or related agreement may be treated as a part of the cost of community facilities. Any such trust agreement or indenture of mortgage or resolution or related agreement may provide the method whereby the general administrative overhead expenses of the authority shall be allocated among the several facilities acquired or constructed by it as a factor of the operational expense of each such facility.
