Resolution Declaring Official Intent to Reimburse Expenditures from Proceeds of Borrowing



WHEREAS, Madison Water Utility, on behalf of the City of Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin (the “Municipality”) intends to complete, or has significantly completed, several public works improvements projects, as identified within Project: 4837-06 in the Wisconsin DNR Safe Drinking Water Loan Program 2023 Fiscal Year Project Priority List  (the “Projects”); and

WHEREAS, the Municipality expects to finance the Projects on a long-term basis by issuing tax-exempt bonds or promissory notes (the “Bonds”); and

WHEREAS, because the bonds will not be issued prior to completion of the eligible Projects, the Municipality must provide interim financing to cover costs of the Projects incurred prior to receipt of the proceeds of the Bonds; and

WHEREAS, it is necessary, desirable, and in the best interests of the Municipality to advance moneys from its funds on hand on an interim basis to pay the costs of the Projects until the Bonds are issued; and

Section 3 - Unavailability of Long-Term Funds.

No funds for payment of the Projects from sources other than the Bonds are, or are reasonably expected to be, reserved, allocated on a long term basis, or otherwise set aside by the Municipality pursuant to its budget or financial policies.

This resolution shall be made available for public inspection at the Madison Water Utility office within 30 days after its approval in compliance with applicable State law governing the availability of records of official acts including Subchapter II of Chapter 19, and shall remain available for public inspection until the Bonds are issued.
