APPROVE RESOLUTION #13-10 AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF SPECIAL TAX REFUNDING BONDS, SERIES 2013 (Ms. Jauregui)

Currently our CFD 2004-1 bond interest rate is at 5.53%. By refinancing the interest rate can be reduced to an approximate rate of 4.07% resulting in annual revenue of approximately $43,000 per year. This refinancing would not extend the maturity of the bonds and it would not reduce the levy of taxes. It also does not involve the issuance of any CABs (Capital Appreciation Bonds). The refinance would generate proceeds for the district on an annual pay as you go basis.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution #13-10 authorizing the issuance of Special Tax Refunding Bonds, Series 2013 and approving Debbie Betts, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services, to sign all the necessary related documents.

M_______ S________ V_______

 
 

36.

ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION #13-12 AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF THE 2013 GENERAL OBLIGATION REFUNDING BONDS (Mrs. Jauregui)

Due to the low interest rates available, the district can refinance the 2001 General Obligation Bond, Series B which would generate approximately $180,000 in new one-time revenue. This refinancing would not extend the maturity of the bonds and it would not reduce the levy of taxes. It also does not involve the issuance of any CABs (Capital Appreciation Bonds).

The recommended action is to approve Resolution #13-12 authorizing the issuance of the 2013 General Obligation Refunding Bonds and approving Debbie Betts, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services, to sign all the necessary related documents.
