Title
An Ordinance Authorizing the Issuance and Sale of Water Supply System Revenue Bonds, Series 2012-A to the Michigan Finance Authority (Roll Call Vote Required - One Reading)
Memorandum
Recommended for Council is an Ordinance approving the issuance by the City of its Water Supply System Revenue Bonds, Series 2012-A in the maximum principal amount of $11,000,000 (the "Bonds"), for the purpose of financing a portion of the costs of additions and improvements to the City's water distribution system, including the West High Service District Pump Station project.  The Bonds are to be sold directly to the Michigan Finance Authority (the "Bond Bank") as part of its Drinking Water Revolving Fund (DWRF) program.  The Public Services Area staff has received approval from the Bond Bank to participate in this financing program, scheduled to close on September 18, 2012.
The Bonds will bear interest at a fixed rate substantially lower than market rates (2.50%) and will mature over 20 years.  This will be the City's fifth such revenue bond financing through the Bond Bank's DWRF program.  The Bonds will be secured by and payable solely from revenues of the Water Supply System.
The Ordinance authorizes the Mayor, City Clerk, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to execute and deliver all required documentation in connection with the issuance, sale and delivery of the Bonds.
The City's bond counsel, Dykema Gossett PLLC, has prepared the Ordinance, with further review by the City Attorney.
