Title
An Ordinance Authorizing the Issuance and Sale of Sewage Disposal System Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2013, of Equal Standing with Certain Outstanding Sewage Disposal System Revenue Bonds (Roll Call Vote Required - One Reading)
Memorandum
Recommended for Council is an Ordinance approving the issuance by the City of Ann Arbor of its Sewage Disposal System Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2013 in the maximum principal amount of $21,500,000.00 (the "Refunding Bonds"), for the purpose of refinancing the City's outstanding Sewage Disposal System Revenue Bonds, Series XIX (issued February 4, 2004), maturing in the years 2014 to 2024, inclusive.  The City's municipal finance advisors have calculated that based on current interest rates, the refunding will yield net present value debt service savings exceeding $2,000,000.00 over the 11 year term of the Refunding Bonds.
The Refunding Bonds will mature in the years 2014 through 2024, and will be secured by the net revenues of the System.  The principal maturity schedule and other terms of the Refunding Bonds have been prepared by the City's municipal financial advisors.  
The Refunding Bonds are to be sold through competitive bidding.  The Ordinance authorizes the City Treasurer to execute an Order awarding the Bonds to the lowest bidder based on the lowest true interest cost to the City.  The Ordinance authorizes the Mayor, City Clerk, Chief Financial Officer and City Treasurer to execute and deliver all required documentation in connection with the issuance, sale and delivery of the Refunding Bonds.
 
The City's bond counsel, Dykema Gossett, prepared the resolution, with further review by the City Attorney.
