CHAPTER 1. MEMORIAL DISTRICTS

1199. The president shall sign all contracts on behalf of the district and shall certify to the county auditor all lawful demands against the district payable from the memorial district fund and from the memorial district bond fund after such demands have first been approved by at least three members of the board. The president shall also perform any other duties imposed by the board. The secretary shall countersign all contracts on behalf of the district and perform any other duties precribed by the board. A majority of the board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, but all official acts of the board must receive the affirmative vote, signature, or approval, as the case may require, of at least three members of the board. (2628)

1200. The moneys in the several funds of the district shall be paid out by the county treasurer only upon warrants drawn by the county auditor against the appropriate district fund. The county auditor shall draw warrants against the memorial district bond retirement fund, if that fund contains sufficient moneys, and if not, then, against any other funds of the district in payment of all valid and outstanding bonds of the district at maturity and of interest coupons thereon when due, upon presentation to the county auditor of the bonds or coupons by the owners thereof. (2629)

1201. The county auditor shall also draw warrants against the memorial district fund and against the memorial district bond fund, in payment of lawful claims against the district certified to the county auditor by the president of the board. (2630)

1202. The board shall, annually, at least fifteen days before the first day of the month in which the board of supervisors is required by law to levy the taxes required for county purposes, furnish to the board of supervisors and to the auditor estimates in writing of the minimum amount of money required for the payment of the principal of and interest upon all bonded indebtedness of the district; and also of the minimum amount of money required by the district for any other purposes. (2631)

1203. The board of supervisors shall annually at the time of levying county taxes and until all bonded indebtedness of the district is fully paid, levy and cause to be collected by the county tax collector a tax on all taxable property in the district sufficient for the payment of the principal of and interest upon all bonded indebtedness of the district. This tax shall be known as the memorial district bond retirement tax. (2632)

1204. The board of supervisors shall in like manner and until all other expenses and claims are fully paid, levy and cause to be collected by the county tax collector a tax sufficient for the payment of all other expenses and claims of the district. This tax shall be known as the memorial district tax. (2633)

1205. The memorial district tax levied in any one year shall not exceed the rate of three-tenths of one cent ($0.003) on each dollar ($1) of the assessed valuation of all taxable property in the district, exclusive of any tax which may be required to pay the principal of and interest upon any bonded indebtedness of the district. In no event shall the tax exceed an amount that is sufficient to pay the estimated expenses of operating and maintaining the memorial district for the next year and the estimated capital outlay of the district for the next two years. (2634)

1206. Taxes shall be paid into the county treasury to the credit of the memorial district bond retirement fund or to the credit of the memorial district fund, as the purpose of the tax determines. (2635)

1207. Taxes become delinquent at the time the county taxes become delinquent and shall bear like penalties for delinquency. All taxes shall be a lien upon all the taxable property in the district, and shall be of the same force and effect as the liens for county taxes. Their collection shall be enforced by the same means provided for the enforcement of liens for county taxes. (2636)

1208. Boards of supervisors, governing bodies of incorporated cities and school districts, and all authorities having control of public lands within this State may on behalf of the county, city, school district, park area, or public agency convey, lease, or make available to districts, either gratuitously or for compensation, sites upon lands under their control or jurisdiction, for the erection and maintenance thereon by districts of assembly or memorial halls, buildings, and meeting places, whenever in the reasonable discretion of such board, body, or authority, such sites can be so conveyed, leased, or made available without inconvenience to the interests of the particular county, city, school district, park, or public agency. (2637)

All claims for money or damages against the district are governed by Part 3 (commencing with Section 900) and Part 4 (commencing with Section 940) of Division 3.6 of Title 1 of the Government Code except as provided therein, or by other statutes or regulations expressly applicable thereto. (2639)
