BILL # 3167

- AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF TAX INCREMENT REFUNDING AND IMPROVEMENT REVENUE BONDS, SERIES 2002A AND SERIES 2002B (BALLWIN TOWN CENTER REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT), THE ISSUANCE OF A TAX INCREMENT REVENUE NOTE, SERIES 2002 (BALLWIN TOWN CENTER REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT), AND AN AMENDMENT TO THE REDEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT IN CONNECTION WITH THE BALLWIN TOWN CENTER REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT; AND AUTHORIZING CERTAIN OTHER AGREEMENTS, DOCUMENTS, AND ACTIONS IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.

A motion was made by Alderman Gatton and seconded by Alderman Buermann for a first reading of Bill No. 3167. A voice vote was taken with a unanimous affirmative result and the motion was declared passed. Bill No. 3167 was read for the first time.

Laura Radcliffe, with A. G. Edwards, reported that $13,665,000 of TIF notes are being taken out plus interest, $850,000 of TDD notes and interest, leaving additional proceeds of $815,000; $407,000 each to the City and the developer. Some of the bonds sold at a discount because people think that interest rates might go higher in the future, therefore, they didn’t pay the full face value for some of the bonds. This is the reason the additional proceeds aren’t higher. The full payoff date is October 1, 2015, assuming the projections are met.
