The Spring Valley City Council met on Monday night, May 13th and approved a resolution to approve the issuance and sale of a Housing and Health Care Facilities Revenue Note, Series 2013 and authorizing the execution of documents relating thereto (Spring Valley Care Center/Olmsted Medical Center Project).

The project to be financed by the Note is the refinancing of the outstanding principal amount of the City’s Housing and Health Care Facilities Revenue Note, Series 2006 (Spring Valley Care Center Project) and the financing of the acquisition, construction, and equipping of an approximately 14,055 square foot medical clinic, outpatient therapy clinic, and post acute nursing facility to be located at 800 Memorial Drive in the City. Except for the medical clinic which will be leased to and operated by Olmsted Medical Center, a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, the Project will be operated by the borrower.

After a public hearing on the project on April 8th, 2013 it was determined that the issuance and sale of the Housing and Health Care Facilities Revenue Note, Series 2013 is in the best interest of the City, and the City determined to issue the Note and to sell the Note to Merchants Bank, National Association in Winona, Minnesota.

Pursuant to a loan agreement to be entered into between the City and the Borrower, the Borrower has agreed to repay the Note in specified amounts and at specified times sufficient to pay in full when due the principal. The note to be issued in accordance with the further provisions hereof; and the total aggregate principal amount of the Note that may be outstanding hereunder is expressly limited to $6,500,000.

Council also approved an amendment to the agreement with People Service. The amendment states; “People Service shall provide the Owner with up to eighty (80) hours of in kind service each year to be used for snow removal efforts within the City of Spring Valley.”
