ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION #15-03, AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF 2008 GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS, SERIES B (Mrs. Betts)

An election was held in the Victor Elementary School District on November 4, 2008 for the issuance and sale of general obligation bonds (“Bonds”) of the District for various purposes in the maximum amount of $150,000,000 (the “2008 Authorization”). The District has previously sold one series of Bonds under the 2008 Authorization in an aggregate principal amount of $19,999,831.05. The District now desires to issue its second series of bonds under the 2008 Authorization in an amount not-to-exceed $16,500,000 (the “Bonds”). The District proposes that the issuance of Bonds include current interest bonds, as well as bonds that allow for the compounding of interest, including capital appreciation bonds. The Bonds are being authorized for sale for the purpose of providing funds to finance projects approved by the 2008 Authorization and to pay the costs of issuing the Bonds.

Pursuant to California Education Code Section 15146(b)(2), enacted by California Assembly Bill 182 (Stats. 2013, Chapter 477) and effective as of January 1, 2014, the Resolution and materials included in this agenda item was first publicly noticed as an information item at the March 10, 2015 Board meeting. At the Board’s next consecutive meeting, being this April 15, 2015 meeting, the attached Resolution and materials are being publicly noticed as an action item for consideration by the Board.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution #15-03 as presented.

An Election was held in Victor Elementary School District (the “District”) on November 6, 2001 for the issuance and sale of general obligation bonds of the District for various purposes in the maximum principal amount of $30,000,000 (the “Authorization”). The District has previously caused the issuance of its second series of bonds under the Authorization, in the aggregate principal amount of $3,249,942.25 (the “2001 Series C Bonds”). On June 9, 2005, the District issued $12,000,000 of its 2005 General Obligation Refunding Bonds (the “Refunding Bonds”) to refund certain of the District’s Election of 1999 Bonds and Election of 2001 Bonds, and together with the “2001 Series C Bonds,” the “Prior Bonds.”

The District now desires to refinance portions of the outstanding Prior Bonds (so refunded, the “Refunded Bonds”) through the issuance of general obligation refunding bonds (the “Refunding Bonds”) in an aggregate principal amount of not-to-exceed $4,500,000. All benefits from the refunding will be delivered to the property owners in the District. The final maturity of the Refunding Bonds will not be later than the maturity dates of the Refunded Bonds.

The recommended action is to approve Resolution #15-06 as presented.
