Title

Resolution to Amend the Articles of Incorporation of the Ann Arbor Building Authority

Memorandum

The Ann Arbor Building Authority was incorporated on July 16, 1965 with a 50-year lifespan. Although no longer actively issuing new bonds, the Authority remains necessary to administer certain existing bond issues that will end within 25 years. Therefore, staff recommends extending the lifespan of the Authority to 75 years from the incorporation date.
