  1. GEFA Loan Time Extension – A. Burroughs

Mr. Burroughs presented a request for a time extension approval on the BGJWSC GEFA loan for improvements to the Academy Creek WPCF and the gravity sewer system in the amount on $15,000,000. Due to impacts from COVID-19 and supply delays on materials associated with the projects, the Project has experience significant supply chain and delivery delay issues, which have subsequently impacted the project schedule and timeline. Time extension is the only change to the original terms and conditions of the loan.

Commissioner Cook made a motion seconded by Commissioner Stephens to move that the Finance Committee recommend that the full Commission approve the modification for time extension for GEFA Loan CW2019008.  Motion carried 3-0-0.


Mr. Burroughs mentioned that the Low Income Household Assistance Program was underway that the Commission had passed at the December meetings.
