Title: Initial Resolution Authorizing Not to Exceed $6,850,000 Bonds of the City of Madison for various street projects.
Sponsors: Paul R. Soglin
Fiscal Note
This is an initial resolution to issue 20-year bonds for certain major streets projects that were included in the 2016 adopted capital budget. Those projects are listed below:

CTH M (Midtown Road and PD) $4,600,000 Capacity expansion
Jenifer, Paterson, Brearly and Few Streets 1,235,000 Street reconstruction
McKee Road (CTH PD) 1,015,000 Capacity expansion
$6,850,000


Up to a total of $6,850,000 in bonds will be issued for these projects, including the estimated cost of issuance.

Due to the relatively large cost impact and expected useful life of these projects, along with the anticipated overall amount of borrowing in 2016 due to major facilities construction and renovation projects, these bonds will be issued with a 20 year repayment period. Debt service on $6.85 million is anticipated to be approximately $535,000 annually. This compares with estimated annual debt service of $850,000 for 10 year promissory notes. Interest costs on 20 year bonds are estimated to total $2.5 million, compared with $1.1 million for 10 year notes. The debt service and interest cost estimates are based on current interest rates on AAA-rated municipal debt and the City's practice of repaying debt on a level-principal basis.
