ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION #17-07 OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VICTOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT APPROVING A DEBT ISSUANCE AND MANAGEMENT POLICY IN ACCORDANCE WITH S.B. 1029 (Mrs. Betts)

Existing California law requires public agencies to provide information to the California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (“CDIAC”) no later than 30 days prior to the sale of the debt. Senate Bill 1029 (“S.B. 1029”), signed into law by Governor Brown on September 12, 2016, amends this law to place additional reporting obligations on issuers of debt. In part, S.B. 1029 requires that an issuer certify that it has adopted local debt policies concerning the use of debt and that the proposed debt issuance is consistent with the local debt policies. S.B. 1029 lists certain topics to be covered in the local debt policies.

The District therefore must adopt a debt issuance and management policy in compliance with S.B. 1029. Bond counsel has assisted the District with preparing a debt issuance and management policy that is in compliance with S.B. 1029.

ACTION: Resolution #17-07 approves a debt issuance and management policy of the District that addresses the topics required to be covered pursuant to S.B. 1029.

FISCAL IMPACT: Not applicable.

RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of Resolution #17-07 “RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VICTOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT APPROVING A DEBT ISSUANCE AND MANAGEMENT POLICY IN ACCORDANCE WITH S.B. 1029.”
