APPROVAL

  1. Refunding 2010C Revenue Bond Issue – J. Donaghy / Courtney Rogers, Davenport & Company

John Donaghy advised that the refunding of the Series 2010C Bonds has been discussed. He added that over the past couple of week, staff along with Davenport & Company, Gray & Pannell, and Charlie Dorminy have put out a RFP for bid proposal, done an evaluation on those proposals and made a recommendation to move forward with this. He then introduced Courtney Rogers from Davenport & Company along with John Pannell from Grey and Pannell Bond Counsel. Mr. Rogers reminded the Commission on the background of the Bill that had been passed on and pending approval by Congress which would eliminate any savings from refunding after December 31, 2017.  Mr. Rogers then continued to discuss the RFP for the refinancing of the bonds and the proposals that were received and the recommendation to approve the selection of Sterling National Bank to refinance the Commission’s 2010C Series Revenue Bonds. He presented the savings that will occur with the refinancing, and the results if the refinancing did not occur.  The total outstanding debt would be reduced by $1.1M and the total interest would decrease by $6.4M.  Mr. Rogers noted that the Special Called meeting was necessary due to the immediate need to take action were the Commission to decide to approve the recommendation to refinance the Series 2010C Bonds.

Commissioner Browning made a motion seconded by Commissioner Copeland to move that the JWSC approve the selection of Sterling National Bank to refinance the Commission’s Series 2010 C Revenue Bonds, that the Second Supplemental Bond Resolution be approved and that the Chairman and Executive Director be authorized to execute the required documents.  Motion carried 7-0-0.
