5593.10 Issuance of bridge revenue bonds.

The bridge commission of any county or city may provide by resolution, at one time or from time to time, for the issuance of bridge revenue bonds of such county or city for the purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of a bridge. The principal and interest on such bonds shall be payable solely from the funds provided by sections 5593.01 to 5593.24 of the Revised Code, for such payment. The bonds of each issue shall be dated, shall bear interest at such rate or rates determined by the commission, shall mature at such time or times, not to exceed fifty years from their date or dates, as is determined by the commission, and may be made redeemable before maturity, at the option of the commission, at such price or prices and under such terms and conditions as are fixed by the commission prior to the issuance of the bonds. The commission shall determine the form of the bonds, including the interest coupons to be attached thereto, and shall fix the denomination or denominations of the bonds and the place or places of payment of principal and interest which may be at any bank or trust company within or without the state.

The bonds shall be signed by the chairman and vice-chairman of the commission or by their facsimile signatures, the official seal of the commission shall be affixed thereto and attested by the secretary-treasurer of the commission, and any coupons attached thereto shall bear the facsimile signature of the chairman and vice-chairman of the commission. In case any officer whose signature, or a facsimile of whose signature, appears on any bonds or coupons ceases to be such an officer before delivery of bonds, such signature or facsimile shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes the same as if he had remained in office until such delivery.

All bonds issued, under Chapter 5593. of the Revised Code, shall have all the qualities and incidents of negotiable instruments under the negotiable instruments law of this state. The bonds may be issued in coupon or in registered form, or both, as the commission determines, and provision may be made for the registration of any coupon bonds as to the principal alone and also as to both principal and interest, and for the reconversion into coupon bonds or bonds registered as to both principal and interest. The commission may sell such bonds in the manner and for the price it determines to be for the best interest of the state.

The proceeds of the bonds of each issue shall be used solely for payment of the cost of the bridge or bridges for which such bonds were issued, and shall be disbursed in such manner and under such restrictions as the commission provides in the resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds or in the trust agreement, as provided by section 5593.12 of the Revised Code, securing the same. If the proceeds of the bonds of any issue, by error of estimates or otherwise, are less than such cost, additional bonds may in like manner be issued to provide the amount of such deficit, and, unless otherwise provided in the resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds or in the trust agreement securing the same, are deemed to be of the same issue and are entitled to payment from the same fund, without preference or priority of the bonds first issued. If the proceeds of the bonds of any issue exceed the cost of the bridge for which such bonds were issued, the surplus shall be deposited to the credit of the sinking fund for such bonds. Additional bonds may be issued to provide for the extension and improvement of any such bridge.

Prior to the preparation of definitive bonds, the commission may, under like restrictions, issue interim receipts or temporary bonds, with or without coupons, exchangeable for definitive bonds when such bonds have been executed and are available for delivery. The commission may also provide for the replacement of any bonds which become mutilated or are destroyed or lost. Bonds may be issued under Chapter 5593. of the Revised Code, without obtaining the consent of any department, division, board, bureau, or agency of the state, and without any other proceeding or the happening of any other conditions or things than those proceedings, conditions, or things which are specifically required by such chapter.

5593.11 Bonds not a debt of state.

Bridge revenue bonds issued under this chapter do not constitute a debt, or a pledge of the faith and credit, of the state or of any political subdivision thereof, but such bonds are payable solely from the funds pledged for their payment as authorized by this chapter, or by funds derived from the issuance of refunding bonds as authorized under this chapter, which refunding bonds are payable solely from funds pledged for their payment as authorized by such chapter. All such bridge revenue bonds shall contain on the face thereof a statement to the effect that the bonds, as to both principal and interest, are not an obligation of this state or of any political subdivision thereof, but are payable solely from revenues pledged for their payment.

All expenses incurred in carrying out this chapter are payable solely from funds provided under this chapter. This chapter does not authorize the bridge commission of any county or city to incur indebtedness or liability on behalf of or payable by the state or any political subdivision thereof.

Such bonds of counties and cities may be issued beyond the general limit of net indebtedness prescribed by Chapter 133. of the Revised Code, and shall not be considered in ascertaining the limitations of the net indebtedness created or incurred by the county or city without a vote of the electors.

5593.12 Trust indenture.

In the discretion of the bridge commission of any county or city, any bonds issued under sections 5593.01 to 5593.24 of the Revised Code may be secured by a trust agreement between the commission 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 may pledge or assign the fees and other revenue to be received, but shall not convey or mortgage the bridge involved or any part thereof. Any such trust agreement or any resolution providing for the issuance of such bonds may contain such provisions for protecting and enforcing the rights and remedies of the bondholders as are reasonable and proper and not in violation of law, including covenants setting forth the duties of the commission in relation to the acquisition of property, and the construction, improvement, maintenance, operation, repair, and insurance of the bridge in connection with which such bonds are authorized, the rates of fees to be charged, and the custody, safeguarding, and application of all moneys, and provisions for the employment of consulting engineers in connection with the construction or operation of such bridge. Any bank or trust company incorporated under the laws of this state which may act as depository of the proceeds of bonds or of revenue may furnish such indemnifying bonds or may pledge such securities as are required by the commission. Any such trust agreement may set forth the rights and remedies of the bondholders and of the trustee, and may restrict the individual right of action by bondholders as is customary in trust agreements or trust indentures securing bonds or debentures of corporations.

Such trust agreement may contain such other provisions as the commission determines reasonable and proper for the security of the bondholders. All expenses incurred in carrying out the provisions of any such trust agreement may be treated as a part of the cost of the operation of such bridge. Any such trust agreement may provide the method whereby general administrative overhead expense of the commission shall be allocated among the several bridges constructed or acquired by it as a factor of the operation expense of each such bridge.

Such pledge shall be valid and binding from the time the pledge is made. The tolls or other revenues or moneys so pledged and thereafter received by the commission are immediately subject to the lien of such pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act, and the lien of any such pledge is valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract, or otherwise against the commission, irrespective of whether such parties have notice thereof. Neither the resolution nor any trust agreement by which a pledge is created need be filed or recorded except in the records of the commission. The use and disposition of moneys to the credit of such sinking fund is subject to the resolution authorizing the issuance of such bonds or of such trust agreement. Except as is otherwise provided in such resolution or trust agreement, such sinking fund shall be a fund for all such bonds, without distinction or priority of one over another.
