Certificate Of Obligation

From Open Risk Manual


Certificate Of Obligation. Municipal security available to governing councils in case of emergency, such as a natural disaster, that needs immediate action without time for voter referendum

For example, when a hurricane destroys the police and emergency services building, there is no time to go through the process of voter referendum. The local council must be able to borrow the money to set up provisional buildings and necessary equipment for police and emergency services so that the community is served in continuity.
