§ 4009. Rentals
It is hereby declared to be the policy of this state that each housing authority shall manage and operate its housing projects in an efficient manner so as to enable it to fix the rentals for dwelling accommodations at the lowest possible rates consistent with providing decent, safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations and that no housing authority shall construct or operate any such project for profit, or as a source of revenue to the state or municipality. To this end an authority shall fix the rental for dwellings in its projects at no higher rate than it shall find to be necessary in order to produce revenue which (together with all other available moneys, revenues, income and receipts of the authority from whatever source derived) will be sufficient.
(1) To pay as the same become due, the principal and interest on the bond of the authority;
(2) To meet the cost of and to provide for maintaining and operating the projects (including the cost of any insurance) and the administrative expenses of the authority; and
(3) To create (during not less than six years immediately succeeding its issuance of any bonds) a reserve sufficient to meet the largest principal and interest payments which will be due on such bonds in any one year thereafter and to maintain such reserve. (1961, No. 212, § 9, eff. July 11, 1961; amended 1967, No. 332 (Adj. Sess.), § 4, eff. March 23, 1968.)
