Except as otherwise provided herein, notes issued by cities or towns pursuant to this act shall be issued in accordance with Chapter 44 of the General Laws.  For counties, Chapter 35, section 38 of the General Laws shall not apply to the sale of notes authorized pursuant to this act.  Except as otherwise provided herein, notes issued by a county pursuant to this act shall be issued in accordance with Chapter 35 of the General Laws.
