Explanation

This ordinance authorizes the issuance of limited tax bond anticipation notes in an amount not to exceed $33,500,000 for the purpose of financing the costs of constructing the Starling Street Parking Garage ($33,500,000). The issuance of the notes is expected to occur later this year after the design of the garage is completed.
Fiscal Impact: The city's commitment for the construction of the parking garage is $32,500,000. This ordinance includes additional monies to provide for the cost of advertising, printing and legal services and other costs incidental thereto, currently estimated not to exceed $1,000,000. It is the intent that the debt service associated with the issuance of the notes will come from revenues generated from the operation of the city's existing parking garages and future revenues generated from the Starling Street Parking Garage.
