Section 122.53 | Bonds secured by trust agreements.


In the discretion of the treasurer of state, any bonds issued under sections 122.39 and 122.41 to 122.62 of the Revised Code, may be secured by a trust agreement between the treasurer of state 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 payments of principal of and interest on loans, charges, fees, and other revenue to be received by the director of development services, all rentals received under leases made by the director, and all proceeds of the sale or other disposition of property held by the director, and may provide for the holding in trust by the trustee to the extent provided for in the proceedings authorizing such bonds, of all such moneys and moneys otherwise payable into the mortgage guarantee fund created by section 122.56 of the Revised Code, and all moneys otherwise payable into the mortgage insurance fund created by section 122.561 of the Revised Code, and of moneys payable into the sinking fund or funds referred to in section 122.57 of the Revised Code, but shall not convey or mortgage any of the real or personal property held by the director or any part thereof. Any such trust agreement, or any proceedings 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 director in relation to the acquisition of property, and the construction, improvement, maintenance, repair, operation, and insurance of facilities, the making of loans and leases and the terms and provisions thereof, and the custody, safeguarding, investment, and application of all moneys, and provisions for the employment of consulting engineers or other consultants in connection with the making of loans and leases and the construction or operation of any facility. Any bank or trust company incorporated under the laws of this state which may act as trustee or 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 treasurer of state. 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 treasurer of state deems reasonable and proper for the security of the bondholders. All expenses incurred by the treasurer of state in carrying out the provisions of any such trust agreement shall be treated as a part of the cost of the operation of the assistance programs authorized pursuant to Chapter 122. of the Revised Code. Any such trust agreement may provide the method whereby general administrative overhead expense of the director with respect to those assistance programs shall be allocated among the funds established pursuant to Chapter 122. of the Revised Code with respect to the operating expenses of the director payable out of the income of the assistance programs.
