Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 572.062


A public utility agency may issue obligations to accomplish the purposes of the agency.


The public utility agency may pledge to the payment of the obligations the revenue of all or part of its facilities, including facilities acquired after the obligations are issued. However, operation and maintenance expenses, including salaries and labor, materials, and repairs of facilities necessary to render efficient service, are a first lien on and charge against the pledged revenue.


The public utility agency may set aside from the proceeds of the sale of the obligations amounts for payment into the interest and sinking fund and reserve fund, and for interest and operating expenses during construction and development, as specified in the proceedings authorizing the obligations.


Obligation proceeds may be invested, pending their use, in securities, interest-bearing certificates, or time deposits as specified in the proceedings authorizing the obligations.
