H-3. Public Sale of Series 2008 Revenue Anticipation Notes

Discussion

Series 2008 Revenue Anticipation Notes are being sold through public offering and will close on or before April 30, 2008.   Proceeds from the notes will be used to pay $32,000,000 of the outstanding principal for the 2007 RAN due on April 25, 2008, and to pay $18,000,000 of project costs related to the purchase of site improvements, portable classrooms, and the renewal, re-roofing and technology upgrades for various schools within the District.  The costs of these projects were previously approved in the 7-year capital plan and a list of these projects along with related costs is attached to this resolution.

 

The remaining outstanding principal of $8,200,000 and interest of $1,603,533 will be paid from other legally available funds of the District, for a total payback of $41,803,533 for the 2007 RAN due on April 25, 2008.

 

The Board is requested to authorize the Superintendent or his designee to execute the bid for these notes and to accept the most favorable bid on behalf of the School Board.
