GENERAL OBLIGATION SCHOOL BONDS FOR THE PURPOSE OF FINANCING THE ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPPING OF SCHOOL FACILITIES

BE IT ORDERED by the Board of Commissioners for the County of Johnston, North Carolina:

  1. Pursuant to The Local Government Bond Act, as amended, the County of Johnston, North Carolina, is hereby authorized to issue general obligation bonds of Johnston County for the purpose of providing funds, together with any other available funds, to finance the acquisition, construction and equipping of modifications, renovations, additions, improvements and extensions to existing facilities and/or one or more new buildings or other school facilities for Johnston County public schools, including acquisition of necessary land and rights-of-way.
  2. The bonds shall be in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $177,000,000.
