A RESOLUTION FINDING THAT THE AMENDMENT AND RESTATE- MENT OF THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION OF FLORALA UTILITIES BOARD IS WISE, EX- PEDIENT AND NECESSARY, AP- PROVING THE AMENDED AND RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION OF FLORALA UTILITIES BOARD AND CONSENT- ING TO THE FILING FOR RECORD OF SUCH AMENDED AND RESTAT- ED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPO- RATION OF FLORALA UTILITIES BOARD IN THE OFFICE OF THE JUDGE OF PROBATE OF COVING- TON COU NTY.,ALABAMA. BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF FLO- RALAAS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Findinas and Determi- nations. The City Council (the "Council") of the City of Florala (the "City") does hereby find and determine as fol- lows: (a) The Florala Utilities Board (the "Board") was heretofore incorporated on July 16, 1940 as evidenced by the filing for record of its Certificate of Incorporation in Book 3, Pages 151-154 in the Office of the Judge of Probate of Covington County, Ala- bama. The Board presently exists under Article 8 of Chapter 50 of Title 11 of the ALA. CODE (1975), which permits the Board to operate a water system and sewer system. (b) The Board's Certificate of In- corporation has been amended from time to time, as follows: (1) December 16, 1948 in Book 4, Page 366, (2) December 19, 1955 in Book 4, Pages 136-138, (3) December 4, 1978 in Book 30, Pages 856-857, (4) February 23, 1979 in Book 31, Pages 93-94, (5) October 13, 2004 in Book 2004, Pages 1754-1755, (6) October 12, 2005 in Book 2005, Pages 1819-1820 and Woman Writes Historic Letter to Her Congressman BEXAR COUNTY-After applying Thera-Gesic to her arthritic hands, Mary Ann W, hand wrote a forty-seven page letter to her Congressman explaining the tree meaning of life. When asked where she had gathered all the wisdom for writing such a masterpiece and why she sent it to a government official, she painlessly replied, "None of your dang business!" Go painlessly with Thera-Gesie Looking for bid notices systems, gas systems and electric systems. (e) The Utilities Board issued its $626,000 Gas Revenue Bonds, Se- ries 1965, dated April 1, 1965, upon which it defaulted on or about Janu- ary, 1979, and, in confiection there- with, evidently dissolved the Utilities Board and transferred ownership of the gas system to the City of Florala. The City of Florala then transferred the gas system to the Board by a res- olution adopted by the City Council and approved by the Board of Direc- tors on August 17, 2004. However, as aforesaid, Article 8 does not pro- vide for the operation of gas system, and therefore: in order to provide for the lawful operation of the gas sys- tem by the Board, it is necessary for the Board to amend and restate its Certificate of Incorporation pursuant to ALA. CODE 11-50-312 (1975) and ALA. CODE 11-50-324 (1975) to come under and be governed by Article 9 of Chapter 50 Title 11 of the ALA. CODE (1975). (f) The Board proposes to issue its $1.005,000 Water, Sewer and Revenue Bonds, Series 2009, dated- February 1, 2009 .(the "Series 2009 Bonds") on February 10, 2009. The Board shall pledge the net system revenues from the water, sewer and gas system operating in the City and surrounding territory and it is impera- tive that the Board have good and merchantable title to such systems. The City hereby transfers and con- veys whatever interest it may have, if any, in the existing water, sewer and natural gas system located in the City and surrounding territory to the Board. (g) In consideration of the forego- ing, the Council hereby determines that it is wise, expedient, necessary and in the best interest of the taxpay- ers of the City, for the Board to m- incorporate under Article 9 of Chap- ter 50 of Title 11 of the ALA. CODE (1975) by amending and restating the existing Certificate of Incorpora- tion in the entirety thereof and substi- tuting therefor the form of Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorpo- ration which is attached hereto as Exhibit A and incorporated herein by reference.
