WVC 7-17-13 §7-17-13. Incurring indebtedness; rights of creditors.
The county fire board may incur any proper indebtedness and issue any obligations and give any security therefor which it considers necessary or advisable in connection with carrying out its purposes as hereinbefore mentioned. No statutory limitation with respect to the nature, or amount, interest rate or duration of indebtedness which may be incurred by municipalities or other public bodies applies to indebtedness of the county fire board.

No indebtedness or obligation incurred by the board shall give any right against any member of the governing body of any participating government or any member of the board. Any obligation or indebtedness of any nature of the board shall never constitute an obligation or indebtedness of any participating government or the governing body of any participating government, within the meaning of any constitutional provision or statutory limitation and shall never constitute or give rise to a pecuniary liability of any participating government or the governing body of any participating government or be a charge against the general credit or taxing power of any participating government or the governing body of any participating government. The rights of creditors of the board shall be solely against the board as a corporate body and shall be satisfied only out of revenues, moneys or property received or held by it in its corporate capacity.
