            The principal or Redemption Price of each Bond shall be paid at Maturity by check or draft to the Person in whose name such Bond is registered on the Bond Register at the Maturity thereof, upon presentation and surrender of such Bond at the office of the Paying Agent.

 

            The interest payable on each Bond on any Interest Payment Date shall be paid to the Registered Owner of such Bond as shown on the Bond Register at the close of business on the Record Date for such interest by check or draft mailed by the Paying Agent to such Registered Owner at the address shown on the Bond Register.

 

            Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, any Defaulted Interest with respect to any Bond shall cease to be payable to the Registered Owner of such Bond on the relevant Record Date and shall be payable to the Registered Owner in whose name such Bond is registered at the close of business on the Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, which Special Record Date shall be fixed as hereinafter specified in this paragraph.  The City shall notify the Paying Agent in writing of the amount of Defaulted Interest proposed to be paid on each Bond and the date of the proposed payment (which date shall be at least 30 days after receipt of such notice by the Paying Agent) and shall deposit with the Paying Agent at the time of such notice an amount of money equal to the aggregate amount proposed to be paid in respect of such Defaulted Interest or shall make arrangements satisfactory to the Paying Agent for such deposit prior to the date of the proposed payment.  Following receipt of such funds, the Paying Agent shall fix a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest which shall be not more than 15 nor less than 10 days prior to the date of the proposed payment.  The Paying Agent shall promptly notify the City of such Special Record Date and, in the name and at the expense of the City, shall cause notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date therefor to be mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, to each Registered Owner of a Bond entitled to such notice at the address of such Registered Owner as it appears on the Bond Register not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date.

 

            The Paying Agent shall keep a record of payment of principal and Redemption Price of and interest on all Bonds and shall at least annually forward a copy or summary of such records to the City.

 

            Section 205.     Registration, Transfer and Exchange of Bonds.  The City covenants that, as long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding, it will cause the Bond Register to be kept at the office of the Paying Agent for the registration, transfer and exchange of Bonds as herein provided.  Each Bond when issued shall be registered in the name of the Owner thereof on the Bond Register. 

 

            Bonds may be transferred and exchanged only on the Bond Register as provided in this Section.  Upon surrender of any Bond at the office of the Paying Agent, the Paying Agent shall transfer or exchange such Bond for a new Bond or Bonds in any authorized denomination of the same Stated Maturity and in the same aggregate principal amount as the Bond that was presented for transfer or exchange.  Bonds presented for transfer or exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument or instruments of transfer or authorization for exchange, in a form and with guarantee of signature satisfactory to the Paying Agent, duly executed by the Registered Owner thereof or by the Registered Owner’s duly authorized agent.

 

            In all cases in which the privilege of transferring or exchanging Bonds is exercised, the Paying Agent shall authenticate and deliver Bonds in accordance with the provisions of this Ordinance.  The City shall pay the fees and expenses of the Paying Agent for the registration, transfer and exchange of Bonds provided for by this Ordinance and the cost of printing a reasonable supply of registered bond blanks.  Any additional costs or fees that might be incurred in the secondary market, other than fees of the Paying Agent, are the responsibility of the Registered Owners of the Bonds.  In the event any Registered Owner fails to provide a correct taxpayer identification number to the Paying Agent, the Paying Agent may make a charge against such Registered Owner sufficient to pay any governmental charge required to be paid as a result of such failure.  In compliance with Section 3406 of the Code, such amount may be deducted by the Paying Agent from amounts otherwise payable to such Registered Owner hereunder or under the Bonds.

 

            The City and the Paying Agent shall not be required (a) to register the transfer or exchange of any Bond after notice calling such Bond or portion thereof for redemption has been given or during the period of 15 days next preceding the first mailing of such notice of redemption, or (b) to register the transfer or exchange of any Bond during a period beginning at the opening of business on the day after receiving written notice from the City of its intent to pay Defaulted Interest and ending at the close of business on the date fixed for the payment of Defaulted Interest pursuant to Section 204 hereof.

 

            The City and the Paying Agent may deem and treat the Person in whose name any Bond is registered on the Bond Register as the absolute owner of such Bond, whether such Bond is overdue or not, for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, the principal or Redemption Price of and interest on said Bond and for all other purposes.  All payments so made to any such Registered Owner or upon the Registered Owner’s order shall be valid and effectual to satisfy and discharge the liability upon such Bond to the extent of the sum or sums so paid, and neither the City nor the Paying Agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

 

            At reasonable times and under reasonable regulations established by the Paying Agent, the Bond Register may be inspected and copied by the Registered Owners (or a designated representative thereof) of 10% or more in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding or any designated representative of such Registered Owners to be evidenced to the satisfaction of the Paying Agent.

 

            Section 206.     Execution, Authentication and Delivery of Bonds.  Each of the Bonds, including any Bonds issued in exchange or as substitution for the Bonds initially delivered, shall be signed by the manual or facsimile signature of the Mayor, attested by the manual or facsimile signature of the City Clerk, and shall have the official seal of the City affixed thereto or imprinted thereon.  In case any officer whose signature appears on any Bonds ceases to be such officer before the delivery of such Bonds, such signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes, as if such person had remained in office until delivery.  Any Bond may be signed by such persons who at the actual time of the execution of such Bond are the proper officers to sign such Bond although at the date of such Bond such persons may not have been such officers. 

 

            The Mayor and City Clerk are hereby authorized and directed to prepare and execute the Bonds as herein specified, and when duly executed, to deliver the Bonds to the Paying Agent for authentication.

 

            The Bonds shall have endorsed thereon a certificate of authentication substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit A attached hereto, which shall be manually executed by (i) the Treasurer of the City or (ii) if a bank or trust company is serving as Paying Agent, an authorized officer or employee of the Paying Agent, but it shall not be necessary that the same officer or employee sign the certificate of authentication on all of the Bonds that may be issued hereunder at any one time.  No Bond shall be entitled to any security or benefit under this Ordinance or be valid or obligatory for any purpose unless and until such certificate of authentication has been duly executed by the Paying Agent.  Such executed certificate of authentication upon any Bond shall be conclusive evidence that such Bond has been duly authenticated and delivered under this Ordinance.  Upon authentication, the Paying Agent shall deliver the Bonds to the Purchaser, upon payment of the purchase price of 100% of the principal amount of the Bonds plus accrued interest thereon to the date of their delivery.

 

            Section 207.     Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Bonds.  If (a) any mutilated Bond is surrendered to the Paying Agent, or the City and the Paying Agent receive evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Bond, and (b) there is delivered to the Paying Agent such security or indemnity as may be required by the Paying Agent, then, in the absence of notice to the Paying Agent that such Bond has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the City shall execute and, upon the City’s request, the Paying Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond, a new Bond of the same Stated Maturity and of like tenor and principal amount.

 

            If any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond has become or is about to become due and payable, the City in its discretion may pay such Bond instead of issuing a new Bond.

 

            Upon the issuance of any new Bond under this Section, the City may require the payment by the Registered Owner of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Paying Agent) connected therewith.

 

            Every new Bond issued pursuant to this Section shall constitute a replacement of the prior obligation of the City, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of this Ordinance equally and ratably with all other Outstanding Bonds.

 

            Section 208.     Cancellation and Destruction of Bonds Upon Payment.  All Bonds that have been paid or redeemed or that otherwise have been surrendered to the Paying Agent, either at or before Maturity, shall be cancelled by the Paying Agent immediately upon the payment, redemption and surrender thereof to the Paying Agent and subsequently destroyed in accordance with the customary practices of the Paying Agent.  The Paying Agent shall execute a certificate in duplicate describing the Bonds so cancelled and destroyed and shall file an executed counterpart of such certificate with the City.

 

 

ARTICLE III

 

REDEMPTION OF BONDS

 

            Section 301.     Redemption of Bonds.  Bonds that are owned by the Purchaser (including the respective installments of principal corresponding thereto) shall be subject to redemption and prepayment prior to Stated Maturity, in whole or in part at any time at the option of the City, upon payment of the principal amount of the Bonds to be redeemed or prepaid, plus accrued interest thereon to the Redemption Date, without premium.

 

            Bonds that are not owned by the Purchaser (including the respective installments of principal corresponding thereto) shall be subject to redemption or prepayment prior to Stated Maturity at the option of the City, as follows:

 

            (a)        The Bonds are not subject to redemption prior toOctober 1, 2017.

 

            (b)        Each of the Bonds or the respective installments of principal thereof becoming due in the years 2018 to 2043, inclusive, shall be subject to redemption and payment at the option of the City, on October 1, 2017, or at any time thereafter in whole or in part, at the principal amount thereof, plus accrued interest thereon to the Redemption Date, without premium.

 

            Bonds (and the respective installments of principal corresponding thereto) to be redeemed shall be redeemed in inverse order of maturity.

 

            In the event of partial redemption of Bonds of the same Stated Maturity, the Bonds to be redeemed shall be selected by the Paying Agent by such method as the Paying Agent may deem equitable, or in the inverse order of the Maturity dates of principal installments in the case of a Bond, the principal of and interest on which are payable in annual installments.

 

            Section 302.     Selection of Bonds to Be Redeemed.

 

            (a)        The Paying Agent shall call Bonds for redemption and payment and shall give notice of such redemption as herein provided upon receipt by the Paying Agent at least 45 days prior to the Redemption Date of written instructions of the City specifying the principal amount, Stated Maturities, Redemption Date and Redemption Prices of the Bonds to be called for redemption.  The Paying Agent may in its discretion waive such notice period so long as the notice requirements set forth in Section 303 hereof are met.

 

            (b)        Bonds shall be redeemed only in the principal amount of $100 or any integral multiple thereof.  When less than all of the Outstanding Bonds are to be redeemed, such Bonds shall be redeemed in inverse order of their Stated Maturities or of the Stated Maturities of installments of principal thereof, and Bonds of less than a full Stated Maturity shall be selected by the Paying Agent in $100 units of principal amount in such equitable manner as the Paying Agent may determine.

 

            (c)        In the case of a partial redemption of Bonds when Bonds of denominations greater than $100 are then Outstanding, then for all purposes in connection with such redemption each $100 of face value shall be treated as though it were a separate Bond of the denomination of $100.  If it is determined that one or more, but not all, of the $100 units of face value represented by any Bond are selected for redemption, then upon notice of intention to redeem such $100 unit or units, the Registered Owner of such Bond or the Registered Owner’s duly authorized agent shall present and surrender such Bond to the Paying Agent (1) for payment of the Redemption Price and interest to the Redemption Date of such $100 unit or units of face value called for redemption, and (2) for exchange, without charge to the Registered Owner thereof, for a new Bond or Bonds of the aggregate principal amount of the unredeemed portion of the principal amount of such Bond.  If the Registered Owner of any such Bond fails to present such Bond to the Paying Agent for payment and exchange as aforesaid, such Bond shall, nevertheless, become due and payable on the Redemption Date to the extent of the $100 unit or units of face value called for redemption (and to that extent only).

 

            Section 303.     Notice and Effect of Call for Redemption.  Unless waived by any Registered Owner of Bonds to be redeemed, official notice of any redemption shall be given by the Paying Agent on behalf of the City by mailing a copy of an official redemption notice by first class mail at least 30 days prior to the Redemption Date, to the Purchaser of the Bonds and each Registered Owner of the Bonds to be redeemed at the address shown on the Bond Register.

 

            All official notices of redemption shall be dated and shall contain the following information:

 

            (a)        the Redemption Date;

 

            (b)        the Redemption Price;

 

            (c)        if less than all Outstanding Bonds of a maturity are to be redeemed, the identification (and, in the case of partial redemption of any Bonds, the respective principal amounts) of the Bonds to be redeemed;

 

            (d)        a statement that on the Redemption Date the Redemption Price will become due and payable upon each Bond or portion thereof called for redemption and that interest thereon shall cease to accrue from and after the Redemption Date; and

 

            (e)        the place where such Bonds are to be surrendered for payment of the Redemption Price, which shall be the office of the Paying Agent.

 

            The failure of any Registered Owner to receive notice given as heretofore provided or an immaterial defect therein shall not invalidate any redemption.

 

            Prior to any Redemption Date, the City shall deposit with the Paying Agent an amount of money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of all the Bonds or portions of Bonds that are to be redeemed on that date.

 

            Official notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions of Bonds to be redeemed shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date, at the Redemption Price therein specified, and from and after the Redemption Date (unless the City defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price) such Bonds or portion of Bonds shall cease to bear interest; provided, however, that the redemption of a portion of the principal of a Bond on which principal is payable in installments shall not reduce the amount of the annual installment of principal and interest on such Bond.  Upon surrender of such Bonds for redemption in accordance with such notice, the Redemption Price of such Bonds shall be paid by the Paying Agent.  Installments of interest due on or prior to the Redemption Date shall be payable as herein provided for payment of interest.  Upon surrender for any partial redemption of any Bond, there shall be prepared for the Registered Owner a new Bond or Bonds of the same Stated Maturity in the amount of the unpaid principal as provided herein.  All Bonds that have been redeemed shall be cancelled and destroyed by the Paying Agent as provided herein and shall not be reissued.

 

            The Paying Agent is also directed to comply with any mandatory or voluntary standards established by the Securities and Exchange Commission then in effect for processing redemptions of municipal securities.  Failure to comply with such standards shall not affect or invalidate the redemption of any Bond.

            The covenants and agreements of the City contained herein and in the Bonds shall be for the equal benefit, protection and security of the legal owners of any or all of the Bonds, all of which Bonds shall be of equal rank and without preference or priority of one Bond over any other Bond in the application of the funds herein pledged to the payment of the principal of and the interest on the Bonds, or otherwise, except as to rate of interest, date of maturity and right of prior redemption as provided in this Ordinance.  The Bonds shall stand on a parity and be equally and ratably secured with respect to the payment of principal and interest from the Net Revenues and in all other respects with any Parity Bonds.  The Bonds shall not have any priority with respect to the payment of principal or interest from said Net Revenues or otherwise over the Parity Bonds and the Parity Bonds shall not have any priority with respect to the payment of principal or interest from said Net Revenues or otherwise over the Bonds.

 

            The Bonds shall be junior and subordinate with respect to the payment of principal and interest from the Net Revenues and in all other respects to the Senior Lien Bonds and, in the event of any default in the payment of either principal of or interest on any of the Senior Lien Bonds, all of the Net Revenues of the System will be applied solely to the payment of the principal of and interest on the Senior Lien Bonds until such default is cured.

ARTICLE VI

 

APPLICATION OF REVENUES

 

            Section 601.     Revenue Fund.  The City covenants and agrees that from and after the delivery of the Bonds, and continuing as long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding hereunder, all of the Revenues shall as and when received be paid and deposited into the Revenue Fund unless otherwise specifically provided in this Ordinance.  Said Revenues shall be segregated and kept separate and apart from all other moneys, revenues, funds and accounts of the City and shall not be commingled with any other moneys, revenues, funds and accounts of the City.  The Revenue Fund shall be administered and applied solely for the purposes and in the manner provided in this Ordinance.

 

            Section 602.     Application of Moneys in Funds and Accounts.  The City covenants and agrees that from and after the delivery of the Bonds and continuing so long as any of the Bonds shall remain Outstanding, it will on the first day of each month, beginning in the month following the month in which the Project is placed into operation, administer and allocate all of the moneys then held in the Revenue Fund as follows:

 

            (a)        Operation and Maintenance Account.  There shall first be paid and credited to the Operation and Maintenance Account an amount sufficient to pay the estimated Expenses during the ensuing month.  All amounts paid and credited to the Operation and Maintenance Account shall be expended and used by the City solely for the purpose of paying the Expenses of the System.

 

            (b)        Senior Lien Debt Service Account.  There shall next be paid and credited to the Senior Lien Debt Service Account any amounts at the time required to be paid and credited to said account under the provisions of the Senior Lien Ordinance.

 

            (c)        Senior Lien Debt Service Reserve Account.  There shall next be paid and credited to the Senior Lien Debt Service Reserve Account any amounts at the time required to be paid and credited to said account under the provisions of the Senior Lien Ordinance.

 

            (d)        Debt Service Account.  There shall next be paid and credited monthly to the Debt Service Account, to the extent necessary to meet on each Bond Payment Date the payment of all interest on and principal of the Bonds, the following sums:

 

            (1)        Beginning with the first of said monthly deposits and continuing on the first day of each month thereafter to and including September 1, 2010, an equal pro rata portion of the amount of interest becoming due on the Bonds on the next succeeding Interest Payment Date; and

 

            (2)        Beginning on October 1, 2010, and continuing on the first day of each month thereafter so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding and unpaid, an amount not less than 1/12 of the amount of principal and interest that will become due on the Bonds on the next succeeding Bond Payment Date.

 

            The amounts required to be paid and credited to the Debt Service Account pursuant to this Section shall be made at the same time and on a parity with the amounts at the time required to be paid and credited in the same month to the debt service accounts established for the payment of principal and interest on Parity Bonds under the provisions of the Parity Ordinances.

 

            Any amounts deposited in the Debt Service Account as accrued interest or as capitalized interest in accordance with Section 502(a) hereof shall be credited against the City’s payment obligations as set forth in subsection (d)(1) of this Section.

 

            All amounts paid and credited to the Debt Service Account shall be expended and used by the City for the sole purpose of paying (i) the interest on and principal of the Bonds as and when the same become due, and (ii) not more than twenty‑four (24) months’ interest on advance construction loans made by the Purchaser of the Bonds prior to their delivery to the Purchaser and the receipt of full payment of the purchase price by the City.

 

            If at any time the moneys in the Revenue Fund are insufficient to make in full the payments and credits at the time required to be made to the Debt Service Account and to the debt service accounts established to pay the principal of and interest on any Parity Bonds, the available moneys in the Revenue Fund shall be divided among such debt service accounts in proportion to the respective principal amounts of said series of bonds at the time outstanding which are payable from the moneys in said debt service accounts.

 

            (e)        Debt Service Reserve Account.  There shall next be paid and credited to the Debt Service Reserve Account the sum of $36.00 each month until the amount on deposit in said Account aggregates the Debt Service Reserve Requirement.  Except as hereinafter provided in this Section, all amounts paid and credited to the Debt Service Reserve Account shall be expended and used by the City solely to prevent any default in the payment of interest on or principal of the Bonds on any Maturity Date or Interest Payment Date if the moneys in the Debt Service Account are insufficient to pay the interest on or principal of said Bonds as they become due.  So long as the Debt Service Reserve Account aggregates the Debt Service Reserve Requirement, no further payments into said Account shall be required, but if the City is ever required to expend and use a part of the moneys in said Account for the purpose herein authorized and such expenditure reduces the amount of said Account below the Debt Service Reserve Requirement, the City shall resume and continue said monthly payments into said Account until said Account shall again aggregate the Debt Service Reserve Requirement.

 

            The amounts required to be paid and credited to the Debt Service Reserve Account pursuant to this Section shall be made at the same time and on a parity with the amounts at the time required to be paid and credited to the debt service reserve accounts established for the Parity Bonds under the provisions of the Parity Ordinances.

 

            Moneys in the Debt Service Reserve Account may be used to call the Bonds for redemption and payment prior to their Stated Maturity, provided all of the Bonds at the time Outstanding are called for payment and funds are available to pay the same according to their terms.  Moneys in the Debt Service Reserve Account shall be used to pay and retire the last Outstanding Bonds unless such Bonds and all interest thereon are otherwise paid.  Any amounts in the Debt Service Reserve Account in excess of the Debt Service Reserve Requirement on any valuation date shall be transferred (i) during the period of acquisition and construction of the Project, to the Project Fund, and (ii) after such construction period, to the Revenue Fund.

 

            If at any time the moneys in the Revenue Fund are insufficient to make in full the payments and credits at the time required to be made to the Debt Service Reserve Account and to the debt service reserve accounts established to protect the payment of any Parity Bonds, the available moneys in the Revenue Fund shall be divided among such debt service reserve accounts in proportion to the respective principal amounts of said series of bonds at the time outstanding which are payable from the moneys in such debt service reserve accounts.

 

            (f)        Replacement and Extension Account.  After all payments and credits required at the time to be made under (1) the provisions of paragraphs (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) of this Section and (2) the provisions of ordinances of the City authorizing additional System Revenue Bonds relating to payments required to be made to debt service accounts and debt service reserve accounts for additional System Revenue Bonds have been made, there shall next be paid and credited to the Replacement and Extension Account the amounts required to be so paid and credited by the Previously Issued Parity Ordinance and, in addition thereto, on the first day of each month in which no deposit is required to be made to the Debt Service Reserve Account pursuant to subsection (c) above, the amount of $36.00 each month so long as any of the Bonds remain outstanding.  Except as hereinafter provided in Section 603, moneys in the Replacement and Extension Account shall be expended and used by the City, if no other funds are available therefor, solely (i) for the purpose of making unusual or extraordinary replacements and repairs in and to the System as may be necessary to keep the System in good repair and working order and to assure the continued effective and efficient operation thereof, including replacing or repairing portions of the System or major items of any plant or equipment which either have been fully depreciated and are worn out or have become inefficient, uneconomical or obsolete, or (ii) for the purpose of extending and improving the System.

 

            (g)        Surplus Account.  After all payments and credits required at the time to be made under the provisions of paragraphs (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) of this Section have been made, all moneys remaining in the Revenue Fund shall be paid and credited to the Surplus Account.  Monthly, on the first day of each month, moneys in the Surplus Account shall be expended and disbursed as follows:

 

(1)        First, to the Senior Lien Debt Service Account and the Senior Lien Debt Service Reserve Account, the amount of any deficiency in the deposits required to be made into said accounts according to the terms of the Senior Lien Ordinance.

 

(2)        Second, so long as either the balance on hand in the Debt Service Reserve Account is less than the Debt Service Reserve Requirement or the balance on hand in the debt service reserve account for any issue of Parity Bonds is less than the debt service reserve requirement for such issue of Parity Bonds, all moneys in the Surplus Account shall be allocated to the Debt Service Reserve Account and the debt service reserve accounts for Parity Bonds in proportion to the original principal amount of the Bonds and of each issue of Parity Bonds, respectively.  In no event, however, shall either (i) the balance on hand in the Debt Service Reserve Account exceed the Debt Service Reserve Requirement or (ii) the balance on hand in the debt service reserve account for any issue of Parity Bonds exceed the debt service reserve requirement for such issue of Parity Bonds.

 

(3)        Third, so long as the balance on hand in the debt service reserve account for any issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds is less than the debt service reserve requirement for such issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds, all moneys in the Surplus Account shall be allocated to the debt service reserve account(s) for each issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds according to the ordinance(s) of the City authorizing each issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds.  In no event, however, shall the balance on hand in the debt service reserve account for any issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds exceed the debt service requirement for such issue of junior lien System Revenue Bonds.

 

(4)        Fourth, after subparagraphs (1), (2) and (3) have been complied with, in any month in which the payment and credit to the Replacement and Extension Account is less than the amount required to be so paid by paragraph (f) of this Section (the “Total Monthly Replacement and Extension Account Deposit”), all moneys in the Surplus Account shall be used to make a transfer to the Replacement and Extension Account in the amount required to make up the deficiency in the Total Monthly Replacement and Extension Account Deposit for said month.

 

(5)        Fifth, after subparagraphs (1), (2), (3) and (4) have been complied with, moneys in the Surplus Account may be expended and used for the following purposes as determined by the governing body of the City:

(iv)       Calling, redeeming and paying prior to Stated Maturity, or, at the option of the City, purchasing in the open market at the best price obtainable not exceeding the redemption price (if any bonds are callable), the Bonds or any other System Revenue Bonds, including principal, interest and redemption premium, if any; provided, however, that so long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, no moneys in the Surplus Account shall be used to redeem or purchase any other System Revenue Bonds without the written consent of the Purchaser.

 

            (h)        Deficiency of Payments into Funds and Accounts.  If at any time the Revenues are insufficient to make any payment on the date or dates hereinbefore specified, the City will make good the amount of such deficiency by making additional payments or credits out of the first available Revenues thereafter received, such payments and credits being made and applied in the order hereinbefore specified in this Section.

            Section 604.     Payments Due on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays.  In any case where a Bond Payment Date is not a Business Day, then payment of principal, Redemption Price or interest need not be made on such Bond Payment Date but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such Bond Payment Date, and no interest shall accrue for the period after such Bond Payment Date.

 

            Section 605.     Nonpresentment of Bonds.  If any Bond is not presented for payment when the principal thereof becomes due at Maturity, if funds sufficient to pay such Bond have been made available to the Paying Agent all liability of the City to the Registered Owner thereof for the payment of such Bond shall forthwith cease, determine and be completely discharged, and thereupon it shall be the duty of the Paying Agent to hold such funds, without liability for interest thereon, for the benefit of the Registered Owner of such Bond, who shall thereafter be restricted exclusively to such funds for any claim of whatever nature on his part under this Ordinance or on, or with respect to, said Bond.  If any Bond is not presented for payment within four years following the date when such Bond becomes due at Maturity, the Paying Agent shall repay to the City the funds theretofore held by it for payment of such Bond, and such Bond shall, subject to the defense of any applicable statute of limitation, thereafter be an unsecured obligation of the City, and the Registered Owner thereof shall be entitled to look only to the City for payment, and then only to the extent of the amount so repaid to it by the Paying Agent, and the City shall not be liable for any interest thereon and shall not be regarded as a trustee of such money.

GENERAL COVENANTS AND PROVISIONS

 

            The City covenants and agrees with each of the Registered Owners of any of the Bonds that so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding and unpaid it will comply with each of the following covenants:

 

            Section 801.     Corporate Existence; Efficient and Economical Operation.  The City will maintain its corporate identity and existence so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding, unless another body corporate and politic by operation of law succeeds to the powers, privileges, rights, liabilities, disabilities and duties of the City and is obligated by law to comply with the terms and provisions of this Ordinance without materially adversely affecting at any time the privileges and rights of any Owner of any Outstanding Bond.

 

            The City will continuously own and will operate the System as a revenue producing facility in an efficient and economical manner and will keep and maintain the same in good repair and working order.  The City will establish and maintain such rules and regulations for the use of the System as may be necessary to assure maximum utilization and most efficient operation of the System.

 

            Section 802.     Rate Covenant.  The City in accordance with and subject to applicable legal requirements will fix, establish, maintain and collect such rates and charges for the use and services furnished by or through the System as will produce Revenues sufficient to (a) pay the Expenses of the System; (b) pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds as and when the same become due at the Maturity thereof or on any Interest Payment Date; and (c) provide reasonable and adequate reserves for the payment of the Bonds and the interest thereon and for the protection and benefit of the System as provided in this Ordinance.  The City will require the prompt payment of accounts for service rendered by or through the System and will promptly take whatever action is legally permissible to enforce and collect delinquent charges.  The City will, from time to time as often as necessary, in accordance with and subject to applicable legal requirements, revise the rates and charges aforesaid in such manner as may be necessary or proper so that the Revenues will be sufficient to cover the obligations under this Section and otherwise under the provisions of this Ordinance.

 

            Section 803.     Reasonable Charges for all Services.  None of the facilities or services provided by the System will be furnished to any user (excepting the City itself) without a reasonable charge being made therefor.  If the Revenues are at any time insufficient to pay the reasonable Expenses of the System and also to pay all interest on and principal of the Bonds as and when the same become due, then the City will thereafter pay into the Revenue Fund a fair and reasonable payment in accordance with effective applicable rates and charges for all services furnished to the City by the System, and such payments will continue so long as the same may be necessary in order to prevent or reduce the amount of any default in the payment of the interest on or principal of the Bonds.

 

            The City will serve any applicant within the service area of the System who desires the services of the System and who can feasibly and legally be served.  So long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City will obtain the concurrence of the Purchaser prior to refusing services to such applicant.

 

            Section 804.     Restrictions on Mortgage or Sale of System.  The City will not mortgage, pledge or otherwise encumber the System or any part thereof, nor will it sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the System or any material part thereof; provided, however, the City may, but only with the consent of the Purchaser so long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser:

 

            (a)        sell at fair market value any portion of the System which has been replaced by other similar property of at least equal value, or which ceases to be necessary for the efficient operation of the System, and in the event of sale, the City will apply the proceeds to either (1) redemption of Outstanding Bonds in accordance with the provisions governing repayment of Bonds in advance of Stated Maturity, or (2) replacement of the property so disposed of by other property the revenues of which shall be incorporated into the Revenues as hereinbefore provided;

 

            (b)        cease to operate, abandon or otherwise dispose of any property which has become obsolete, nonproductive or otherwise unusable to the advantage of the City; or

 

            (c)        grant a security interest in equipment to be purchased with the proceeds of any loan, lease or other obligation undertaken in accordance with Article IX hereof.

 

            Section 805.     Insurance; Fidelity Bond Coverage.  The City will carry and maintain insurance with respect to the System and its operations against such casualties, contingencies and risks (including but not limited to property and casualty, fire and extended coverage insurance upon all of the properties forming a part of the System insofar as the same are of an insurable nature, public liability, worker’s compensation and employee dishonesty insurance), such insurance to be of the character and coverage and in such amounts as would normally be carried by other municipalities or public entities engaged in similar activities of comparable size and similarly situated.  In the event of loss or damage, the City, with reasonable dispatch, will use the proceeds of such insurance in reconstructing and replacing the property damaged or destroyed, or in paying the claims on account of which such proceeds were received, or if such reconstruction or replacement is unnecessary or impracticable, then the City will pay and deposit the proceeds of such insurance into the Revenue Fund.  The City will annually review the insurance it maintains with respect to the System to determine that it is customary and adequate to protect its property and operations.  The cost of all insurance obtained pursuant to the requirements of this Section shall be paid as an Expense out of the Revenues.

 

            All officers and employees of the City handling the funds and accounts of the System shall be bonded in each fiscal year in an amount not less than the total amount of principal and interest becoming due on all obligations of the City during the fiscal year or, so long as any of the Bonds are held or insured by the Purchaser, the amount required by the Purchaser.

 

            As long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City will annually submit a report of its insurance and fidelity bond coverage to the Purchaser for review and approval.

 

            Section 806.     Books, Records and Accounts.  The City will install and maintain proper books, records and accounts (entirely separate from all other records and accounts of the City) in which complete and correct entries will be made of all dealings and transactions of or in relation to the System.  Such accounts shall show the amount of Revenues received from the System, the application of such Revenues, and all financial transactions in connection therewith.  Said books shall be kept by the City according to standard accounting practices as applicable to the operation of facilities comparable to the System.

 

            Section 807.     Annual Budget.  Prior to the commencement of each fiscal year, the City will cause to be prepared and filed with the City Clerk a budget setting forth the estimated receipts and expenditures of the System for the next succeeding fiscal year.  So long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City Clerk, promptly upon the filing of said budget in the City Clerk’s office, will mail a copy of said budget to the Purchaser of the Bonds.  Said annual budget shall be prepared in accordance with the requirements of the laws ofMissouri and shall contain all information that is required by such laws.

 

            Section 808.     Audits.  As long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, audits shall be made at such time and in such manner as the Purchaser shall require.

 

            If none of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, then annually, promptly after the end of the fiscal year, the City will cause an audit to be made of the System for the preceding fiscal year by a certified public accountant or firm of certified public accountants to be employed for that purpose and paid from the Revenues.  Said annual audit shall cover in reasonable detail the operation of the System during such fiscal year.

 

            Within 30 days after the completion of each audit, a copy thereof shall be filed in the office of the City Clerk, and, if any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, a duplicate copy of the audit shall be mailed to the Purchaser of the Bonds.  Such audits shall at all times during the usual business hours be open to the examination and inspection by any taxpayer, any user of the services of the System, any Registered Owner of any of the Bonds, or by anyone acting for or on behalf of such taxpayer, user or Registered Owner.

 

            As soon as possible after the completion of each audit, the governing body of the City shall review such audit, and if the audit discloses that proper provision has not been made for all of the requirements of this Ordinance and the Act, the City will promptly cure such deficiency and will promptly proceed to increase the rates and charges to be charged for the use and services furnished by the System as may be necessary to adequately provide for such requirements.

 

            Section 809.     Right of Inspection.  The Purchaser of the Bonds and any Registered Owner or Owners of 10% of the principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding shall have the right at all reasonable times to inspect the System and all records, accounts and data relating thereto, and shall be furnished all such information concerning the System and the operation thereof which the Purchaser or such Registered Owner or Owners may reasonably request.

 

            Section 810.     Performance of Duties and Covenants.  The City will faithfully and punctually perform all duties, covenants and obligations with respect to the operation of the System now or hereafter imposed upon the City by the Constitution and laws of the State ofMissouri and by the provisions of this Ordinance.

 

            Section 811.     Consultant’s Report.  Upon the request of the Purchaser, but in no event more often than once every three years, the City will cause a Consultant to make an examination of and report on the condition and operations of the System, such report to include recommendations as to any changes in such operations deemed desirable.  Each such report shall also make reference to any unusual or extraordinary items of maintenance and repair and any extensions or improvements that may be needed in the ensuing three-year period.  A copy of each such report shall be filed in the office of the City Clerk and, upon written request, sent to the Purchaser of the Bonds or any Bondowner (at the expense of such Bondowner).

 

            Section 812.     Junior Lien Bond Certification.  The City hereby represents and covenants that the Bonds directed to be issued by this Ordinance are so issued in full compliance with the restrictions and conditions upon which the City may issue additional bonds payable out of the Net Revenues of the System and which are junior and subordinate to the Senior Lien Bonds, as set forth and contained in the Senior Lien Ordinance, and that the Bonds herein directed to be issued are so issued as junior and subordinate in all respects to the Senior Lien Bonds.

 

            Section 813.     Tax Covenants.

 

            (a)        The City covenants that (1) it will comply with all applicable provisions of the Code, including Sections 103 and 141 through 150, necessary to maintain the exclusion from federal gross income of the interest on the Bonds, and (2) it will not use or permit the use of any proceeds of Bonds or any other funds of the City, nor take or permit any other action, or fail to take any action, which would adversely affect the exclusion from federal gross income of the interest on the Bonds.  The City will also pass such other resolutions or ordinances and take such other actions as may be necessary to comply with the Code and with other applicable future law, in order to ensure that the interest on the Bonds will remain excluded from federal gross income, to the extent any such actions can be taken by the City.

 

            (b)        The City covenants that (1) it will use the proceeds of the Bonds as soon as practicable for the purposes for which the Bonds are issued, and (2) it will not invest or directly or indirectly use or permit the use of any proceeds of the Bonds or any other funds of the City in any manner, or take or omit to take any action, that would cause the Bonds to be “arbitrage bonds” within the meaning of Section 148(a) of the Code.

 

            (c)        The City covenants that it will pay or provide for the payment from time to time of all rebatable arbitrage to theUnited Statespursuant to Section 148(f) of the Code and the Federal Tax Certificate.  This covenant shall survive payment in full or defeasance of the Bonds.  The Federal Tax Certificate may be amended or replaced if, in the opinion of Bond Counsel, such amendment or replacement will not adversely affect the exclusion from federal gross income of the interest on the Bonds.

 

            (d)        The City covenants that it will not use any portion of the proceeds of the Bonds, including any investment income earned on such proceeds, directly or indirectly, in a manner that would cause any Bond to be a “private activity bond” within the meaning of Section 141 of the Code.

 

            (e)        The foregoing covenants shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the defeasance of the Bonds pursuant to Article XI of this Ordinance or any other provision of this Ordinance, until the final Maturity of all Bonds Outstanding.

 

            Section 814.     Refinanced Bonds ‑ When Required.  The City hereby represents and covenants that it will refinance the unpaid balance, in whole or in part, of the Outstanding principal amount of the Bonds upon the request of the Purchaser if at any time it should appear to the Purchaser that the City is able and authorized by law to refinance the Bonds by obtaining a loan for such purposes from cooperatives or private sources at reasonable rates and terms.

 

 

ARTICLE IX

 

ADDITIONAL BONDS AND OBLIGATIONS

 

            Section 901.     Senior Lien Bonds.  The City covenants and agrees that so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding, the City will not issue any additional bonds or incur or assume any other debt obligations appearing as liabilities on the balance sheet of the City or the System for the payment of moneys determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, including capital leases as defined by generally accepted accounting principles, payable out of the Net Revenues or any part thereof which are superior to the Bonds.

 

            Section 902.     Parity Lien Bonds and Other Obligations.  The City covenants and agrees that so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding, it will not issue any additional bonds or other long‑term obligations payable out of the Net Revenues or any part thereof which stand on a parity or equality with the Bonds unless Section 905 hereof is complied with and the following conditions are met:

 

            (a)        The City shall not be in default in the payment of principal of or interest on any Bonds or any Parity Bonds at the time outstanding or in making any payment at the time required to be made into the respective funds and accounts created by and referred to in this Ordinance or any Parity Ordinance (unless such additional revenue bonds or obligations are being issued to provide funds to cure such default).

 

            (b)        Either of the following:

 

            (1)        The Net Revenues Available for Debt Service, as determined by a certified public accountant or firm of certified public accountants, for the fiscal year immediately preceding the issuance of additional bonds shall have been equal to at least 110% of the Average Annual Debt Service for all System Revenue Bonds of the City, including the additional bonds proposed to be issued.  In determining the Average Annual Debt Service, the interest on any SRF Program Bonds shall be reduced by the SRF Subsidy, if any.  In determining the Net Revenues Available for Debt Service for the purpose of this subsection, such accountant(s) may adjust said Net Revenues Available for Debt Service by adding thereto, in the event the City has made any increase in rates for the use and services of the System and such increase has not been in effect during all of the fiscal year immediately preceding the issuance of additional bonds, the amount, as estimated by such accountant(s) or a Consultant, of the additional Net Revenues Available for Debt Service which would have resulted from the operation of the System during said preceding fiscal year had such rate increase been in effect for the entire period.

 

            (2)        The Net Revenues Available for Debt Service projected to be derived by the City from the operation of the System for the fiscal year immediately following the fiscal year in which the improvements to the System, the cost of which is being financed by such additional bonds, are to be in commercial operation, as determined by a Consultant, shall be equal to at least 110% of the average of the Debt Service Requirements in all fiscal years succeeding said fiscal year in which such improvements are expected to be placed in commercial operation.  In determining the Average Annual Debt Service, the interest on any SRF Program Bonds shall be reduced by the SRF Subsidy, if any.  In determining the projected Net Revenues Available for Debt Service for the purpose of this subsection, the Consultant may adjust said projections by adding thereto any estimated increase in Net Revenues Available for Debt Service resulting from any increase in rates for the use and services of the System duly made by the City and which shall be in effect for the period of such projections which, in the opinion of the Consultant, are economically feasible and reasonably considered necessary based on projected operations of the System.

 

            (c)        So long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, any ordinance authorizing such additional parity bonds shall contain substantially the same terms, conditions, covenants and procedures as established in this Ordinance and such ordinance authorizing such additional revenue bonds shall acknowledge the fact that the Bonds may be called for redemption and payment prior to the Stated Maturity thereof as a requirement of the Purchaser as contained in 7 U.S.C. 1983(3), 7 C.F.R. Part 1780, and any succeeding federal laws and regulations applicable thereto.

 

            Additional revenue bonds of the City issued under the conditions set forth in this Section shall stand on a parity with the Bonds and shall enjoy complete equality or lien on and claim against the Net Revenues with the Bonds, and the City may make equal provision for paying said bonds and the interest thereon out of the Revenue Fund and may likewise provide for the creation of reasonable debt service accounts and debt service reserve accounts for the payment of such additional bonds and the interest thereon out of moneys in the Revenue Fund.

 

            Section 903.     Junior Lien Bonds and Other Obligations.  Nothing in this Section contained shall prohibit or restrict the right of the City to issue additional revenue bonds or other revenue obligations for any lawful purpose in connection with the operation of the System and benefitting the System and to provide that the principal of and interest on said revenue bonds or obligations shall be payable out of the Net Revenues of the System, provided at the time of the issuance of such additional revenue bonds or obligations Section 905 hereof is complied with and the City is not in default in the performance of any covenant or agreement contained in this Ordinance (unless such additional revenue bonds or obligations are being issued to provide funds to cure such default), and provided further that such additional revenue bonds or obligations shall be junior and subordinate to the Bonds so that if at any time the City shall be in default in paying either interest on or principal of the Bonds, or if the City is in default in making any payments required to be made by it under the provisions of paragraphs (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) of Section 602 of this Ordinance, the City shall make no payments of either principal of or interest on said junior and subordinate revenue bonds or obligations until said default or defaults be cured.  In the event of the issuance of any such junior and subordinate revenue bonds or obligations, the City, subject to the provisions aforesaid, may make provision for paying the principal of and interest on said revenue bonds or obligations out of moneys in the Revenue Fund.

 

            Section 904.     Refunding Bonds.  Subject to the continuing obligation of the City to comply with the provisions of Section 905 hereof and with 7 U.S.C. 1983(3) and regulations issued thereunder so long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City shall have the right, if it shall find it desirable, without complying with the provisions of Section 902 hereof to refund any of the Bonds under the provisions of any law then available, and the refunding bonds so issued shall enjoy complete equality of pledge with any of the Bonds which are not refunded, if any, upon the Net Revenues of the System; provided, however, that if only a portion of the Bonds are refunded and if said Bonds are refunded in such manner that the aggregate amount of principal and interest scheduled to become due on the refunding bonds in any fiscal year (taking into account scheduled mandatory redemptions) exceeds the aggregate amount of principal and interest scheduled to become due on the refunded Bonds in said fiscal year (taking into account scheduled mandatory redemptions) then said Bonds may be refunded without complying with the provisions of Section 902 hereof only by and with the written consent of the Registered Owners of a majority in principal amount of the Bonds not refunded.

 

            Section 905.     Consent of Purchaser to Additional Bonds.  Notwithstanding any provision in this Ordinance to the contrary, as long as any of the Bonds that remain Outstanding are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City will not issue any additional bonds or other obligations having a claim on the Net Revenues or any part thereof without the prior written consent of the Purchaser.

DEFAULT AND REMEDIES

 

            Section 1001.   Acceleration of Maturity Upon Default.  The City covenants and agrees that if it defaults in the payment of the principal of or interest on any of the Bonds as the same become due on any Bond Payment Date, or if the City or its governing body or any of the officers, agents or employees thereof fail or refuse to comply with any of the provisions of this Ordinance or of the constitution or statutes of the State of Missouri, and such default continues for a period of 60 days after written notice specifying such default has been given to the City by the Registered Owner of any Bond then Outstanding, then, at any time thereafter and while such default continues, the Registered Owners of 25% in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding may, by written notice to the City filed in the office of the City Clerk or delivered in person to said City Clerk, declare the principal of all Bonds then Outstanding to be due and payable immediately, and upon any such declaration given as aforesaid, all of said Bonds shall become and be immediately due and payable, anything in this Ordinance or in the Bonds contained to the contrary notwithstanding.  This provision, however, is subject to the condition that if at any time after the principal of said Outstanding Bonds has been so declared to be due and payable, all arrears of interest upon all of said Bonds, except interest accrued but not yet due on such Bonds, and all arrears of principal upon all of said Bonds has been paid in full and all other defaults, if any, by the City under the provisions of this Ordinance and under the provisions of the statutes of the State of Missouri have been cured, then and in every such case the Registered Owners of a majority in principal amount of the Bonds then Outstanding, by written notice to the City given as hereinbefore specified, may rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences, but no such rescission or annulment shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or impair any rights consequent thereon.

 

            Section 1002.   Other Remedies.  The provisions of this Ordinance, including the covenants and agreements herein contained, shall constitute a contract between the City and the Registered Owners of the Bonds, and the Registered Owner or Owners of not less than 10% in principal amount of the Bonds at the time Outstanding shall have the right for the equal benefit and protection of all Registered Owners of Bonds similarly situated:

 

            (a)        by mandamus or other suit, action or proceedings at law or in equity to enforce the rights of such Registered Owner or Owners against the City and its officers, agents and employees, and to require and compel duties and obligations required by the provisions of this Ordinance or by the Constitution and laws of the State of Missouri;

 

            (b)        by suit, action or other proceedings in equity or at law to require the City, its officers, agents and employees to account as if they were the trustees of an express trust; and

 

            (c)        by suit, action or other proceedings in equity or at law to enjoin any acts or things which may be unlawful or in violation of the rights of the Registered Owners of the Bonds.

 

            Section 1003.   Limitation on Rights of BondownersNo one or more Bondowners secured hereby shall have any right in any manner whatever by his or their action to affect, disturb or prejudice the security granted and provided for herein, or to enforce any right hereunder, except in the manner herein provided, and all proceedings at law or in equity shall be instituted, had and maintained for the equal benefit of all Registered Owners of such Outstanding Bonds.

 

            Section 1004.   Remedies Cumulative.  No remedy conferred herein upon the Bondowners is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, but each such remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to every other remedy and may be exercised without exhausting and without regard to any other remedy conferred herein.  No waiver of any default or breach of duty or contract by the Registered Owner of any Bond shall extend to or affect any subsequent default or breach of duty or contract or shall impair any rights or remedies consequent thereon.  No delay or omission of any Bondowner to exercise any right or power accruing upon any default shall impair any such right or power or shall be construed to be a waiver of any such default or acquiescence therein.  Every substantive right and every remedy conferred upon the Registered Owners of the Bonds by this Ordinance may be enforced and exercised from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient.  If any suit, action or proceedings taken by any Bondowner on account of any default or to enforce any right or exercise any remedy has been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, or has been determined adversely to such Bondowner, then, and in every such case, the City and the Registered Owners of the Bonds shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder, respectively, and all rights, remedies, powers and duties of the Bondowners shall continue as if no such suit, action or other proceedings had been brought or taken.

 

            Section 1005.   No Obligation to Levy Taxes.  Nothing contained in this Ordinance shall be construed as imposing on the City any duty or obligation to levy any taxes either to meet any obligation incurred herein or to pay the principal of or interest on the Bonds.

DEFEASANCE

 

            Section 1101.    Defeasance.  When any or all of the Bonds or the interest payments thereon have been paid and discharged, then the requirements contained in this Ordinance and the pledge of Net Revenues made hereunder and all other rights granted hereby shall terminate with respect to the Bonds or interest payments so paid and discharged.  Bonds or the interest payments thereon shall be deemed to have been paid and discharged within the meaning of this Ordinance if there has been deposited with a commercial bank or trust company located in the State of Missouri and having full trust powers, at or prior to the Stated Maturity or Redemption Date of said Bonds or interest payments thereon, in trust for and irrevocably appropriated thereto, money and/or Defeasance Obligations which, together with the interest to be earned thereon, will be sufficient for the payment of the principal or Redemption Price of said Bonds, and/or interest to accrue on such Bonds to the Stated Maturity or Redemption Date, as the case may be, or if default in such payment shall have occurred on such date, then to the date of the tender of such payments; provided, however, that if any such Bonds shall be redeemed prior to the Stated Maturity thereof, (1) the City shall have elected to redeem such Bonds, and (2) either notice of such redemption shall have been given, or the City shall have given irrevocable instructions, or shall have provided for an escrow agent to give irrevocable instructions, to the Paying Agent to redeem such Bonds in compliance with Section 302(a) of this Ordinance.  Any money and Defeasance Obligations that at any time shall be deposited with a commercial bank or trust company by or on behalf of the City, for the purpose of paying and discharging any of the Bonds or the interest payments thereon, shall be and are hereby assigned, transferred and set over to such bank or trust company in trust for the respective Registered Owners of the Bonds, and such money shall be and are hereby irrevocably appropriated to the payment and discharge thereof.  All moneys and Defeasance Obligations deposited with such bank or trust company shall be deemed to be deposited in accordance with and subject to all of the provisions contained in this Ordinance.

 

            Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, as long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the City will not issue any additional revenue bonds or other obligations for the purpose of providing funds to refund all or part of the Bonds unless either (i) all of the Bonds are paid, retired and cancelled concurrently with the issuance of such refunding revenue bonds or other obligations or at the first interest and principal payment date for the Bonds occurring after the issuance of the refunding revenue bonds or other obligations, or (ii) written consent to the issuance of such refunding revenue bonds or other obligations is given by the Purchaser.

            (e)        reduce the percentage in principal amount of Bonds required for the written consent to any modification or alteration of the provisions of this Ordinance.

 

            Any provision of the Bonds or of this Ordinance may, however, be amended or modified by ordinance duly passed by the governing body of the City at any time in any respect with the written consent of the Registered Owners of all of the Bonds at the time Outstanding.

 

            Without notice to or the consent of any Bondowners, the City may amend or supplement this Ordinance for the purpose of curing any formal defect, omission, inconsistency or ambiguity therein or in connection with any other change therein which is not materially adverse to the interests of the Bondowners.

 

            Every amendment or modification of the provisions of the Bonds or of this Ordinance, to which the written consent of the Bondowners is given, as above provided, shall be expressed in an ordinance passed by the governing body of the City amending or supplementing the provisions of this Ordinance and shall be deemed to be a part of this Ordinance.  A certified copy of every such amendatory or supplemental ordinance, if any, and a certified copy of this Ordinance shall always be kept on file in the office of the City Clerk, and shall be made available for inspection by the Registered Owner of any Bond or a prospective purchaser or owner of any Bond authorized by this Ordinance, and upon payment of the reasonable cost of preparing the same, a certified copy of any such amendatory or supplemental ordinance or of this Ordinance will be sent by the City Clerk to any such Bondowner or prospective Bondowner.

            As long as any of the Bonds are owned or insured by the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall be deemed to be a Bondowner for purposes of Article X and Article XII of this Ordinance.

 

            In determining whether the Registered Owners of the requisite principal amount of Bonds Outstanding have given any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent or waiver under this Ordinance, Bonds owned by the City shall be disregarded and deemed not to be Outstanding under this Ordinance, except that, in determining whether the Bondowners shall be protected in relying upon any such request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent or waiver, only Bonds which the Bondowners know to be so owned shall be so disregarded.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bonds so owned which have been pledged in good faith shall not be disregarded as aforesaid if the pledgee establishes to the satisfaction of the Bondowners the pledgee’s right so to act with respect to such Bonds and that the pledgee is not the City.

            Section 1204.   Severability.  If any section or other part of this Ordinance, whether large or small, is for any reason held invalid, the invalidity thereof shall not affect the validity of the other provisions of this Ordinance.

            REGISTERED OWNER:          UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

 

            PRINCIPAL AMOUNT:           SEVENTY THREE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS

 

            RICH HILL, MISSOURI, a city of the fourth class and a political subdivision of the State of Missouri (the “City”), for value received, hereby promises to pay out of the funds hereinafter specified, to the registered owner shown above, or its registered assigns, but solely from the source and in the manner herein specified, the principal amount shown above and to pay interest thereon, but solely from the source and in the manner herein specified, from the effective date of registration of this Bond (which date is set forth on the last page of this Bond) at the rate of 4.375% per annum, payable October 1, 2009, and thereafter annually on October 1 in each year, on the unpaid principal balance until paid in full.

 

            The principal or redemption price of and interest on this Bond shall be payable in installments as follows:

 

Interest only shall be payable annually on October 1, 2009, and October 1, 2010, and thereafter both principal of and interest on this Bond shall become due in installments of $4,251.00 on October 1, 2011, and annually thereafter on October 1 until the principal and interest are fully paid except that the final installment of the entire remaining principal and interest on this Bond, if not sooner paid, shall be due and payable on October 1, 2043.

 

            Every payment made on the obligation evidenced by this Bond shall be applied first to accrued interest and then to principal.  Both principal of and interest on this Bond are hereby made payable in any coin or currency which, on the respective dates of payment of principal and interest, is legal tender for the payment of debts due theUnited States of America.

 

            Bonds that are owned by the United States of America acting through the United States Department of Agriculture, including the respective installments or principal corresponding thereto in the case of a Bond, the principal of and interest on which are payable in installments, shall be subject to redemption and prepayment prior to maturity, at the option of the City, in whole or in part at any time upon payment of the par value of the principal amount of Bonds to be redeemed and prepaid, plus accrued interest thereon to the date fixed for redemption and prepayment, without premium.

 

            Bonds that are not owned by the United States of America acting through the United States Department of Agriculture (including the respective installments of principal corresponding thereto), are not subject to redemption prior to October 1, 2017.  Such Bonds, including installments of principal in the case of a Bond, the principal of and interest on which are payable in installments, maturing in the years 2018 to 2043, inclusive, are subject to redemption and payment at the option of the City on October 1, 2017, or at any time thereafter in whole or in part at the principal amount thereof, plus accrued interest thereon to the date fixed for redemption and payment, without premium.

 

            If this Bond or any installment of principal of this Bond be called for redemption as aforesaid, interest on this Bond or on such installments of principal of this Bond will cease on the specified redemption date provided funds or securities in which such funds are invested for such redemption are on deposit with the hereinafter referred to Paying Agent prior to the redemption date.  Redemption of less than all of the unpaid installments of principal of this Bond shall not reduce the annual installment of principal and interest payable each year.  If all of the unpaid installments of principal of this Bond be called for redemption, this Bond shall no longer be entitled to the benefits and protection of the covenants contained in the Ordinance authorizing this Bond and shall not be deemed to be outstanding under the provisions of said Ordinance.

 

            Notice of redemption, unless waived, is to be given by the Paying Agent by mailing an official redemption notice by first class mail at least 30 days prior to the date fixed for redemption, to the Purchaser of the Bonds and each registered owner of the Bond or Bonds to be redeemed at the address shown on the Bond Register.  Notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions of Bonds to be redeemed shall, on the redemption date, become due and payable at the redemption price therein specified, and from and after such date (unless the City shall default in the payment of the redemption price) such Bonds or portions of Bonds shall cease to bear interest.

 

            During such time as this Bond is outstanding and unpaid, interest and principal installment payments accruing on this Bond, except for the final payment of the entire indebtedness, shall be payable by check or draft to the Registered Owner hereof without presentation of this Bond by the Treasurer of the City (the “Paying Agent”).  Final payment of the entire obligation evidenced by this Bond shall be payable upon presentation and surrender of this Bond at the office of the Paying Agent.

            The City hereby covenants with the Registered Owner of this Bond that it will keep and perform all covenants and agreements contained in the Ordinance, and will fix, establish, maintain and collect such rates, fees and charges for the use and services furnished by or through the System, as will produce Revenues sufficient to pay the costs of operation and maintenance of the System, pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds as and when the same become due, and provide reasonable and adequate reserve funds.  Reference is made to the Ordinance for a description of the covenants and agreements made by the City with respect to the collection, segregation and application of the Revenues of the System, the nature and extent of the security of the Bonds, the rights, duties and obligations of the City with respect thereto, and the rights of the Registered Owners thereof.

 

            The Bonds are issuable in the form of fully registered bonds without coupons in the denomination of $100 or any integral multiple thereof. 

 

            This Bond may be transferred or exchanged, as provided in the Ordinance, only on the Bond Register kept for that purpose at the office of the Paying Agent, upon surrender of this Bond together with a written instrument of transfer or exchange satisfactory to the Paying Agent duly executed by the Registered Owner or the Registered Owner’s duly authorized agent, and thereupon a new Bond or Bonds in any authorized denomination of the same maturity and in the same aggregate principal amount shall be issued to the transferee in exchange therefor as provided in the Ordinance and upon payment of the charges therein prescribed.  The City and the Paying Agent may deem and treat the person in whose name this Bond is registered on the Bond Register as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, the principal or redemption price hereof and interest due hereon and for all other purposes.

 

            This Bond shall not be valid or become obligatory for any purpose or be entitled to any security or benefit under the Ordinance until the Certificate of Authentication hereon shall have been executed by the Paying Agent.

 

            IT IS HEREBY CERTIFIED AND DECLARED that all acts, conditions and things required to exist, happen and be performed precedent to and in the issuance of the Bonds have existed, happened and been performed in due time, form and manner as required by law, and that before the issuance of the Bonds, provision has been duly made for the collection and segregation of the Revenues and for the application of the same as hereinbefore provided.
