impose and collect charges in an amount sufficient to pay:


maintenance and operation expenses of the port improvement or facility the net revenue of which is pledged;


the interest on the obligations as it accrues; and


the principal of the obligations as the obligations mature; and


make any other payment prescribed by the ordinance, resolution, or other proceeding authorizing or relating to the issuance of the obligations.


Obligations payable from revenue may be secured:


solely by a pledge of all or part of the revenue from any lease, sublease, sale, or contract of sale entered into by the municipality or board with respect to the port improvement or facility to be financed with the obligations; or


as provided by Subdivision (1) and by a trust indenture and a mortgage or deed of trust lien on or security interest in the port improvement or facility.
