      (2)   The balance in the Reserve Account shall be maintained to equal the reserve requirement.
      (3)   The Reserve Account shall constitute the margin for safety and protection against default in the payment of principal of and interest on the refunding bonds, and the monies in the Reserve Account shall be used to pay current principal and interest on the refunding bonds to the extent that monies in the Bond and Interest Account are insufficient for that purpose. Any deficiency in the balance maintained in the Reserve Account shall be made up from the next available tax increment or net revenues remaining after credits into the Bond and Interest Account. If monies in the Reserve Account are transferred to the Bond and Interest Account to pay principal of and interest on outstanding refunding bonds, then the depletion of the balance in the Reserve Account shall be made up from the next available tax increment or net revenues after the credits into the Bond and Interest Account. Any monies (except monies attributable to tax increment or investment earnings on tax increment which shall be transferred to the Bond and Interest Account) in the Reserve Account in excess of the reserve requirement shall either be transferred to the Sewage Works Improvement Fund or be used for the purchase of outstanding bonds including accrued interest.
