Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

The proposed ordinance authorizes the issuance of up to $139 million of City and County of Denver, General Obligation Bonds, Series 2019A-B.  The 2019A Bonds will fund approximately $82 million of Elevate Denver bond projects identified as part of the 2017 GO Bond authorization approved by Denver voters in November 2017.  The 2019B Bonds in a par amount up to $57 million will refund existing Series 2009A Better Denver and Zoo GO Bonds to achieve interest cost savings.  There will be no change to the original maturity of the Series 2009A bonds, and based on current market conditions, the refunding is expected to generate approximately $4.5 million or 8.2% of net present value savings. 

 

The Series 2019A-B Bonds will be issued as fixed-rate, tax-exempt obligations with a term not to exceed 10 years.  The final rate and par amount will be determined on the day of pricing and costs associated with the transaction will be paid for by the proceeds of the bonds.

 

The Bonds will be a General Obligation of the City, secured by the full faith and credit of the City, and are payable from general ad valorem taxes on all the taxable property within the City without limitation as to rate and in an amount sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds when due, except to the extent other legally available funds are applied for such purpose.
