PART IV. COUNTY ROAD CONSTRUCTION SPECIAL REVENUE BONDS.

§7-27-19.  Issuance of county road construction special revenue bonds.

Special revenue bonds may be issued by the West Virginia Economic Development Authority pursuant to an intergovernmental written agreement between the county commission and the Commissioner of Highways to finance or refinance, in whole or in part, road construction projects in an aggregate principal amount not exceeding the amount which the county commission(s) and the Authority mutually agree can be paid as to both principal and interest and reasonable margins for a reserve, if any, therefor from county transportation sales and use tax collections.  In the discretion of the Authority, special revenue bonds issued pursuant to this article may be issued for road construction projects in two or more counties.

(1) The Authority shall establish a fund to deposit county transportation sales and use tax collections to pay debt service on the bonds.

(2) The State Treasurer shall thereafter transfer from the county's subaccount all county transportation sales and use tax revenues pledged to the payment of principal and interest of the road construction special revenue bonds into the fund established under subdivision (1) of this section.

(3) The road construction special revenue bonds shall be authorized to be issued by the Authority pursuant to this article, and shall be secured, shall bear such date and shall mature at such time, not exceeding thirty years from the date of issue, shall bear interest at such rate or rates, including variable rates, be in such denominations, be in such form, carry such registration privileges, be payable in such medium of payment and at such place or places and such time or times and be subject to such terms of redemption as the Authority may authorize.  Road construction special revenue bonds may be sold by the West Virginia Economic Development Authority, at public or private sale, at or not less than the price the Authority determines.  The road construction special revenue bonds shall be executed by manual or facsimile signature of an authorized officer of the West Virginia Economic Development Authority.  In case any authorized officer whose signature, or a facsimile of whose signature, appears on any bond ceases to be an authorized officer before delivery of those bonds, the signature or facsimile is nevertheless sufficient for all purposes the same as if he or she had remained in office until the delivery.
