In making the determination, the governing body shall set a rate that is not less than one hundred twenty-five per cent of the rate in effect on the date of determination or, if the bonds are not then issued, one hundred twenty-five per cent of the initial rate on the bonds, except that if such determination exceeds the maximum rate permitted under the terms of issuance, the rate shall be the maximum rate. It is further assumed, notwithstanding the provisions of any reimbursement obligation, that the bonds will remain outstanding until the stated maturity of the bonds.
