  99.835.  Secured obligations authorized — interest rates — how retired — sale — approval by electors not required — surplus fund distribution — exception — county collectors' and municipal treasurers' duties — no personal liability for commission, municipality or state. — 1.  Obligations secured by the special allocation fund set forth in sections 99.845 and 99.850 for the redevelopment area or redevelopment project may be issued by the municipality pursuant to section 99.820 or by the tax increment financing commission to provide for redevelopment costs.  Such obligations, when so issued, shall be retired in the manner provided in the ordinance or resolution authorizing the issuance of such obligations by the receipts of payments in lieu of taxes as specified in section 99.855 and, subject to annual appropriation, other tax revenue as specified in section 99.845.  A municipality may, in the ordinance or resolution, pledge all or any part of the funds in and to be deposited in the special allocation fund created pursuant to sections 99.845 and 99.850 to the payment of the redevelopment costs and obligations.  Any pledge of funds in the special allocation fund may provide for distribution to the taxing districts of moneys not required for payment of redevelopment costs or obligations and such excess funds shall be deemed to be surplus funds, except that any moneys allocated to the special allocation fund as provided in subsection 4 of section 99.845, and which are not required for payment of redevelopment costs and obligations, shall not be distributed to the taxing districts but shall be returned to the department of economic development for credit to the general revenue fund.  In the event a municipality only pledges a portion of the funds in the special allocation fund for the payment of redevelopment costs or obligations, any such funds remaining in the special allocation fund after complying with the requirements of the pledge, including the retention of funds for the payment of future redevelopment costs, if so required, shall also be deemed surplus funds.  All surplus funds shall be distributed annually to the taxing districts in the redevelopment area by being paid by the municipal treasurer to the county collector who shall immediately thereafter make distribution as provided in subdivision (12) of section 99.820.

  2.  Without limiting the provisions of subsection 1 of this section, the municipality may, in addition to obligations secured by the special allocation fund, pledge any part or any combination of net new revenues of any redevelopment project, or a mortgage on part or all of the redevelopment project to secure its obligations or other redevelopment costs.

  3.  Obligations issued pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865 may be issued in one or more series bearing interest at such rate or rates as the issuing body of the municipality shall determine by ordinance or resolution.  Such obligations shall bear such date or dates, mature at such time or times not exceeding twenty-three years from their respective dates, when secured by the special allocation fund, be in such denomination, carry such registration privileges, be executed in such manner, be payable in such medium of payment at such place or places, contain such covenants, terms and conditions, and be subject to redemption as such ordinance or resolution shall provide.  Obligations issued pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865 may be sold at public or private sale at such price as shall be determined by the issuing body and shall state that obligations issued pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865 are special obligations payable solely from the special allocation fund or other funds specifically pledged.  No referendum approval of the electors shall be required as a condition to the issuance of obligations pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865.

  4.  The ordinance authorizing the issuance of obligations may provide that the obligations shall contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and of the regularity of their issuance.

  5.  Neither the municipality, its duly authorized commission, the commissioners or the officers of a municipality nor any person executing any obligation shall be personally liable for such obligation by reason of the issuance thereof.  The obligations issued pursuant to sections 99.800 to 99.865 shall not be a general obligation of the municipality, county, state of Missouri, or any political subdivision thereof, nor in any event shall such obligation be payable out of any funds or properties other than those specifically pledged as security therefor.  The obligations shall not constitute indebtedness within the meaning of any constitutional, statutory or charter debt limitation or restriction.
