Title: Initial Resolution Authorizing Bonds Not to Exceed $10,000,000 by City of Madison for Street and Utility Reconstruction on Monroe Street
Sponsors: Paul R. Soglin

Fiscal Note

This is an initial resolution to issue 20-year bonds for the Monroe Street major street project included in the 2018 adopted capital budget.  Up to a total of $10,000,000 will be issued for this project, including the estimated cost of issuance.

 

Due to the relatively large cost impact and useful life of this project, along with the overall amount of borrowing in 2018 due to major facilities construction and renovation projects, these bonds will be issued with a 20 year repayment period.  Debt service on $10,000,000 is anticipated to average approximately $684,000 annually.  This compares with estimated average annual debt service of $1,165,000 annually for 10 year promissory notes.  Interest costs on 20 year bonds are estimated to total $3.7 million, compared with $1.7 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.

 

Over 90% of the City's general obligation debt remains on a 10-year maturity.  These bonds represent less than 10% of the anticipated 2018 general obligation debt issuance scheduled for October 2nd.
