Chatfield approves advanced refunding of bonds


Mon, Feb 29th, 2016
Posted in Chatfield Government

At the February 22 Chatfield City Council meeting, Mike Bubany, Drown & Associates, reported significant net savings with the advanced refunding of bonds issued in 2010/Thurber Building and in 2011/Wastewater Treatment Plant. Councilor Ken Jacobson was absent.

The council on January 11 passed a resolution authorizing Bubany’s firm to negotiate a sale and allow Mayor Russ Smith and City Clerk Joel Young to sign the bond purchase agreement if a minimum net savings of $300,000 could be achieved.

Bubany stated the city received an AA stable rating from Standard and Poor’s. The negotiated sale of the new combined General Obligation crossover refunding bond of $5,410,000 will yield a net savings of $386,493. The average interest rate will be a flat 2%.

Because Mayor Smith and city clerk Young already signed off on the purchase agreement, the council passed a resolution affirming the agreement.

Other business in brief

• Brian Burkholder requested and received authorization to fill vacant summer help positions. Last year the city spent $19,000 for the three part-time workers, two part-time summer helpers, and one seasonal worker.

He also reported that they could order eight picnic tables in March. The order was approved.

• Police Chief Shane Fox said he would like to replace the 2011 Impala, which has about 80,000 miles on it. He asked to replace it with a 2016 Ford Explorer, expected to cost about $28,500. The council gave him permission to order the squad to be delivered late in the spring.

• The hire of Melissa Hurley as the new pool manager was approved as recommended by the Park and Recreation Committee. She was one of two well qualified applicants.

• The appointment of Ben Frederichs to a three-year term on the Historical Preservation Commission was approved.

• Young announced that the Local Board of Appeal and Equalization for Fillmore County is coming up. For the city of Chatfield, open book meetings will be held from Monday, April 25 through Thursday, April 28 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Fillmore County Assessor’s office.
