SEC. 55-23-25. Issuance of bonds for enlargement and renovation of stadium; amount of bond issue; payment of principal and interest on bonds; details and execution of bonds.
Upon receipt of a sum of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) from the Board of Supervisors of Hinds County, the Building Commission is authorized at one (1) time or from time to time to petition by resolution to the State Bond Commission for the issuance of negotiable bonds of the State of Mississippi by the State Bond Commission to provide funds for the purpose of paying all or any part of the cost of enlarging and renovating the Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in accordance with the provisions of Sections 55-23-21 through 55-23-43. The amounts of bonds issued shall not exceed an aggregate sum of Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000.00).
The principal of and the interest on such bonds shall be payable from the Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium Bond Sinking Fund, hereby created in the State Treasury, in the manner hereinafter set forth. Such bonds shall bear date or dates, be in such denomination or denominations, bear interest at such rate or rates, be payable at such place or places within or without the State of Mississippi, shall mature absolutely at such time or times, be redeemable prior to maturity at such time or times and upon such terms, with or without premium, shall bear such registration privileges, and shall be substantially in such form, all as shall be determined by resolution of the State Bond Commission. Provided, however, that such bonds shall mature or otherwise be retired in annual installments beginning not more than five (5) years from date thereof and extending not more than twenty-five (25) years from date thereof. Such bonds shall be signed by the Chairman of the State Bond Commission, or by his facsimile signature, and the official seal of the State Bond Commission shall be affixed thereto, attested by the Secretary of the State Bond Commission. The interest coupons to be attached to such bonds may be executed by the facsimile signatures of said officers. Whenever any such bonds shall have been signed by the officials herein designated to sign the bonds, who were in the office at the time of such signing but who may have ceased to be such officers prior to the sale and delivery of such bonds, or who may not have been in office on the date such bonds may bear, the signatures of such officers upon such bonds and coupons shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes and have the same effect as if the person so officially signing such bonds had remained in office until the delivery of the same to the purchaser, or had been in office on the date such bonds may bear.
