CALL TO ORDER:

DECLARATION OF A QUORUM

Roll was called with six Commissioners present and a quorum was declared.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 1: Work session discussion of capital improvement projects and funding options.
Mayor Peterson welcomed those in attendance and explained that the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the projects in general, and to have funding options outlined by the public financial consultants present at the meeting.
Mr. John Waldo and Chris Gander of Bosc, Inc., a subsidiary of BOK Financial Corporation and Allan Brooks of the Public Finance Law Group, PLLC spoke regarding funding options, the parameters of each and the timeline that must be met in order to be prepared for the February 7, 2012 election.
Regarding deadlines, Mr. Brooks noted that in order to give the Attorney General’s office time to review ballot language, as it relates to the General Obligation bonds, a November 1, 2011 decision regarding projects/funding sources would be preferable.
STEVE SMITH ARRIVED AT 6:50 P.M.
Mr. Waldo requested City staff provide them with an Excel spreadsheet which prioritizes the projects, the time lines of those projects and the proposed funding stream(s). Once received, the financial consultants can use the information to prepare more in-depth funding options.
The Commission also discussed extending the current bond, which is scheduled to roll-off in November, 2011, to fund the resurfacing of the Expo parking lot and upgrading the electrical amperage for the RV lot. These projects, combined with other smaller city projects, would cost approximately $3 million dollars. The financial consultants assured the Commission that this could be done in a relatively short time frame.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 2: ADJOURNMENT

There being no further business to come before the meeting, a motion was made by Commissioner Stephens, seconded by Commissioner Harrod, that the meeting be adjourned. Motion carried 7-0. (7:42 p.m..)

AYE: Stephens, Harrod, Peterson, Collier, Winterringer, Smith, Sims
