Adopt the resolution of Official Intent for Reimbursement of Capital Projects

DEPARTMENT: Finance Department

SUBMITTED BY: Rachel Mayer, Finance Director


The planned 2019 bond issuance has three components. The first component is the standard capital borrowing which includes investment in technology, roadways, and buildings. The second and third component of the planned bond issuance are connected to the proposed special service areas in the downtown for streetscape projects.

Unfunded Capital Projects
The City Council at the workshops held on October 29, 2018 and November 13, 2018 reviewed the proposed 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The original unfunded project listing totaled $7,020,000. Based upon questions and proposals provided by City Council, staff deferred the replacement of a ladder truck, reducing the projected borrowing by $1.3 million. The current unfunded projects for the 2019 CIP total $5,720,000.

The City would borrow for the improvements on behalf of the property owners at an amount of $2.22 million. The full amount plus interest will be repaid to the City over the fifteen-year term of the special service area.
