             222          (1) Any formal action taken by the governing body of a public body under the authority
             223      of this chapter may be taken by resolution of that governing body.
             224          (2) (a) The governing body of any public body may by resolution provide for the
             225      issuance of refunding bonds to refund outstanding bonds issued by the public body or its
             226      predecessor, either prior to or after the effective date of this chapter, only:
             227          (i) to pay or discharge all or any part of any outstanding series or issue of bonds,
             228      including applicable interest, in arrears or about to become due and for which sufficient funds
             229      are not available;
             230          (ii) to achieve a savings; or
             231          (iii) to achieve another objective that the governing body finds to be beneficial to the
             232      public body.
             233          (b) Any refunding bonds may be delivered in exchange for the outstanding bonds being
             234      refunded or may be sold in a manner, at terms, with details, and at a price above, at, or below
             235      par as the governing body determines advisable. The refunding bonds may be issued without
             236      an election, unless an election is required by the Utah Constitution.
             237          (c) The governing body may, by resolution, delegate to one or more officers of the
             238      local political subdivision the authority to:
             239          (i) in accordance with and within the parameters set forth in the resolution, approve the
             240      final interest rate or rates, price, principal amount, maturity or maturities, redemption features,
             241      and other terms of the bond; and
             242          (ii) approve and execute all documents relating to the issuance of a bond.
             243          [(c)] (d) It is the express intention of the Legislature that interest rate limitations
             244      elsewhere appearing in the laws of the state not apply to nor limit the rates of interest borne by


             245      refunding bonds.
             246          (3) Advance refunding bonds may be issued in a principal amount in excess of the
             247      principal amount of the bonds to be refunded as determined by the governing body. This
             248      amount may be equal to the full amount required to pay the principal of, interest on, and
             249      redemption premiums, if any, due in connection with the bonds to be refunded to and including
             250      their dates of maturity or redemption in accordance with the advance refunding plan adopted by
             251      the governing body, together with all costs incurred in accomplishing this refunding. The
             252      principal amount of refunding bonds may be less than or the same as the principal amount of
             253      the bonds being refunded so long as provision is duly and sufficiently made for the retirement
             254      or redemption of the bonds to be refunded. Any reserves held or taxes levied or collected to
             255      secure the bonds to be refunded may be applied to the redemption or retirement of the bonds,
             256      or otherwise, as the governing body may determine.
             257          (4) Prior to the application of the proceeds derived from the sale of advance refunding
             258      bonds to the purposes for which the bonds have been issued, these proceeds, together with any
             259      other legally available funds, including reserve funds, may be invested and reinvested only in
             260      government obligations maturing at such times as may be required to provide funds sufficient
             261      to pay principal of, interest on, and redemption premiums, if any, due in connection with the
             262      bonds to be refunded or the advance refunding bonds, or both, in accordance with the advance
             263      refunding plan. To the extent incidental expenses have been capitalized, these bond proceeds
             264      may be used to defray these expenses.
             265          (5) The governing body may contract regarding the safekeeping and application of the
             266      proceeds of sale of advance refunding bonds and other funds included with them and the
             267      income from them, including the right to appoint a trustee, which may be any trust company or
             268      state or national bank having powers of a trust company inside or outside the state. The
             269      governing body may provide in the advance refunding plan that until such monies are required
             270      to redeem or retire the bonds to be refunded, the advance refunding bond proceeds and other
             271      funds, and the income from them, shall be used to pay and secure payment of principal of,
             272      interest on, and redemption premiums, if any, due in connection with all or a portion of the
             273      advance refunding bonds or the bonds being refunded, or both.
             274          (6) In computing indebtedness for the purpose of any applicable constitutional or
             275      statutory debt limitation, there shall be deducted from the amount of outstanding indebtedness


             276      the principal amount of outstanding general obligation bonds for the payment of which there
             277      has been dedicated and deposited in escrow government obligations, the principal of or interest
             278      on which, or both, will be sufficient to provide for the payment of these general obligation
             279      bonds as to principal, interest, and redemption premiums, if any, when due at maturity or upon
             280      some earlier date upon which the bonds have been called for redemption in accordance with
             281      their terms.
             282          (7) When a public body has irrevocably set aside for and pledged to the payment of
             283      bonds to be refunded proceeds of advance refunding bonds and other monies in amounts
             284      which, together with known earned income from their investment, will be sufficient in amount
             285      to pay the principal of, interest on, and any redemption premiums due on the bonds to be
             286      refunded as the same become due and to accomplish the refunding as scheduled, the refunded
             287      bonds shall be considered duly paid and discharged for the purpose of any applicable
             288      constitutional or statutory debt limitation.
             289          (8) Refunding bonds and bonds issued for any other purpose may be issued separately
             290      or issued in combination in one or more series or issues by the same issuer.
             291          (9) Except as specifically provided in this section, refunding bonds issued under this
             292      chapter shall be issued in accordance with the provisions of law applicable to the type of bonds
             293      of the issuer being refunded in effect either at the time of the issuance of the refunding bonds
