Any pledge made by the municipality or the Connecticut Development Authority for bonds issued as provided in this subsection shall be valid and binding from the time when the pledge is made, and any revenues or other receipts, funds or moneys so pledged and thereafter received by the municipality or the Connecticut Development Authority shall be subject to the lien of such pledge without any physical delivery thereof or further act. The lien of any such pledge shall be valid and binding as against all parties having claims of any kind in tort, contract or otherwise against the municipality or Connecticut Development Authority, irrespective of whether such parties have notice of such lien. Neither the resolution nor any other instrument by which a pledge is created need be recorded. All expenses incurred in carrying out such financing may be treated as project costs.
