After a district has been established and organized and a water resource board has been appointed, the water resource board, for the purpose of paying current district expenses, including per diem, compensation, and expenses of managers and wages or salaries of officers and employees, by resolution, may authorize and issue district warrants in anticipation of and pending collection and receipt of taxes levied. The warrants shall bear the rate of interest set by the board, which shall not exceed twelve percent per annum on those issues sold at private sale. There is no interest rate ceiling on warrants sold at public sale or to the state of North Dakota or any of its agencies or instrumentalities. The district treasurer shall keep a register in which to enter each warrant issued, showing the date and amount of each warrant, the date of payment, and the amount paid in redemption thereof. All warrants shall be paid in order of their presentation for payment to the district treasurer. The warrants shall be drawn to the claimant or bearer in the same manner as a county warrant and shall be signed by the chairman of the water resource board and countersigned by the treasurer of the district. The aggregate total amount of warrants issued in any year to pay current district expenses shall not exceed eighty percent of the district's tax levy for that year.
