(3) The Mayor and City Council, for the purpose of making
improvements in said "Fairlawn" District of the Town of
Laurel or for the operation or maintenance of any municipal
function within the said district, are hereby given full power
and authority to borrow, upon the faith and credit of the Town
of Laurel, such sum or sums as may be needed for the pur-
poses mentioned; to fix the maturity or maturities of any
such debt; the interest rate and manner and place of pay-
ment; and to issue their evidences of indebtedness for the

part of any such debt shall run for a longer period than ten
(10) years, and the Mayor and City Council shall, by proper
resolution provide for the liquidation of said debt by the ap-
plication of receipts of special assessments or taxes collected
and received as hereinbefore provided and allocated from said
"Fairlawn" District. Provided further that at no time shall
the Mayor and City Council be obligated for a greater amount
