Finance Department

#14724 - Resolution Approving the Issuance by the Public Finance Authority of its Educational Facilities Revenue Bond (Duke School), Series 2021 
This is a public hearing for purposes of the federal Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act ("TEFRA"), as required by section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, regarding the possible issuance of one or more series of its Revenue Bonds Series 2021 in an aggregate principal amount of not to exceed $10,000,000.

The Public Finance Authority (PFA) is a governmental unit of the State of Wisconsin created for the purpose of issuing tax-exempt and taxable conduit bonds for public and private entities nationwide.  PFA is sponsored by the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities, the Wisconsin Counties Association and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities.  Any debt issued is not debt of the City or PFA, but rather is payable solely from debt service payments received from the entity involved (in this case, the Borrower).  Other projects financed by PFA include:  Durham Academy, Incorporated in Durham, The Hill Center, Inc. in Durham, Carolina Friends School in Durham, St. David’s School in Raleigh, the Raleigh Montessori School and WakeMed in Raleigh (partial listing).  Approximately 175 North Carolina projects have been financed by PFA.

PFA has been requested to issue the Bonds pursuant to Section 66.0304 of the Wisconsin Statutes, as amended, in the principal amount of up to $10,000,000.  The proceeds of the Bonds will be loaned to the Borrower to be used to (a) refund in advance of their maturity the Borrower’s obligations with respect to the North Carolina Capital Facilities Finance Agency Variable Rate Educational Facilities Revenue Refunding Bonds (Duke School), Series 2012, the proceeds of which were used to refinance and finance the Prior Project (as defined below); (b) finance the Current Project (as defined below), and (c) finance certain issuance costs to be incurred in connection with the Bonds.

The City has no obligation to repay any of these bonds, nor will the issuance of these bonds have any financial impact on the City.  The City Council is being asked to approve this item only because of federal tax law and the fact that the project being financed is located within the Durham city limits.  As such, the staff have not reviewed the details of the project, nor evaluated its financial feasibility.

Representatives from the applicants financing team are here and available to answer any questions that you might have.
