Nebraska Revised Statute 85-408
Dormitories; housing facilities; other facilities; rates, fees, or charges; pledge for payment of bonds; surplus; approval by Legislature.
The boards are authorized and directed to establish and maintain such schedule of rates, fees, or charges for the use of the facilities afforded by the buildings constructed or acquired under sections 85-401 to 85-411 and other facilities controlled by such board, the revenue of which in whole or in part is pledged to the holder of the bonds, which shall be in an amount at least sufficient on the amortization plan to pay the operating and maintenance charges thereof and the principal and interest representing the indebtedness against the income and revenue therefrom and may be sufficient in amount to provide for such bond reserve, replacement, and surplus funds as the boards in their discretion shall determine. The amounts in such funds shall be expended for such purposes in connection with the facilities as the boards shall determine, and any amount in any surplus or replacement fund and any amounts received through the sale, condemnation, or destruction of any facilities may be used to construct, repair, or replace any of the types of facilities described in section 85-403. Any amounts in such funds are specifically appropriated to the purposes of such funds and shall at all times be subject to the orders of the boards accordingly.
Before any single expenditure in excess of five hundred thousand dollars is made from any such surplus or replacement fund, the board concerned shall first submit such proposed expenditure to and secure the approval or disapproval of the Legislature or, if the Legislature is not in session, of the Executive Board of the Legislative Council.
