Whenever a joint powers agreement provides for the creation of an agency or entity which is separate from the parties to the agreement and is responsible for the administration of the agreement, such agency or entity shall, within 30 days after the effective date of the agreement or amendment thereto, cause a notice of the agreement or amendment to be prepared and filed with the office of the Secretary of State. Such notice shall contain:

(a) The name of each public agency which is a party to the agreement.

(b) The date upon which the agreement became effective.

(c) A statement of the purpose of the agreement or the power to be exercised.

(d) A description of the amendment or amendments made to the agreement, if any.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, any agency or entity administering a joint powers agreement or amendment to such an agreement, which agreement or amendment becomes effective on or after the effective date of this section, which fails to file the notice required by this section within 30 days after the effective date of the agreement or amendment, shall not thereafter, and until such filings are completed, issue any bonds or incur indebtedness of any kind.
