(2)

the amount which should be levied for the payment of principal, interest, and redemption price of each series of bonds or notes payable in whole or in part from taxes;

(3)

the amount which should be levied for the purpose of paying all other contractual obligations of the district payable in whole or in part from taxes; and

(4)

the percentage of anticipated tax collections and the cost of collecting the taxes.

In determining the amount of taxes which should be levied each year, the board may consider whether proceeds from the sale of bonds have been placed in escrow to pay interest during construction and whether the board reasonably expects to have revenue or receipts available from other sources which are legally available to pay principal of or interest or redemption price on the bonds. The board shall levy a tax in the first full year after issuance of its first series of bonds.
