Any municipal corporation may, for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, maintaining, equipping, and operating off-street parking facilities, structures, or lands required therefor:
(A) Use any moneys in the general fund, not otherwise obligated or encumbered;
(B) Issue and sell bonds, pursuant to Chapter 133. of the Revised Code, or issue and sell bonds under the authority of Section 3 of Article XVIII, Ohio Constitution, except that such bonds shall not be authorized to pay operating expenses;
(C) Impose reasonable fees or charges upon the users of any such off-street parking facilities or structures for the purpose of maintaining, repairing, operating, and regulating them, and for the recovery of such portion, if any, of the cost of acquiring and improving them, expended from funds other than those collected by special assessments.
Subject to the provisions of an indenture given to secure payment of notes and bonds issued for the purpose, all moneys derived from the operation of off-street parking facilities or structures, except such parts thereof as are necessary in each case to pay the taxes levied against the real estate used in such operation, and to pay all costs of maintenance, repairs, operation, and regulation of such off-street parking facilities or structures, may, irrespective of the provisions of section 5705.10 of the Revised Code, until such bonds are fully paid and retired, be paid into the bond retirement funds or sinking funds, as the case may be, of the respective municipal corporations. In the event the lands used for such off-street parking facilities or structures are sold, leased, or subleased as provided by section 717.05 of the Revised Code, the moneys accruing from such sale, lease, or sublease may, if the bonds have not previously been retired, be paid into such bond retirement funds or sinking funds, or be used to acquire, construct, maintain, equip, repair, operate, and regulate additional off-street parking facilities and structures.
