 COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 03


Meeting Date: January 28, 2003

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution approving Indebtedness of the Redevelopment Agency in an Amount Not to Exceed $7,000,000 for the Purpose of Financing and/or Refinancing Redevelopment Activities and Approving Related Actions

Submitted by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION 
Approve a resolution approving indebtedness of the Redevelopment Agency in an amount not to exceed $7,000,000 for the purpose of financing and/or refinancing redevelopment activities and approving related actions.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
The staff recommends that the City and the Redevelopment Agency adopt resolutions in order to approve not to exceed $7,000,000 in tax allocation bonds for the Redevelopment Agency. The Agency anticipates that it will have capacity to issue these bonds between now and the end of Fiscal Year 2003-04, but due to state budget considerations, there may be a moratorium or other limitation on the ability to issue tax increment indebtedness in the future. It is possible that such a moratorium or limit, if enacted, would nevertheless allow the issuance of debt that had already been authorized. While there is no guarantee that this is the case, there is also no cost or disadvantage in authorizing the debt now. Prior to final issuance and delivery of these bonds, the Agency Board would have to approve the method of sale and the official statement for the bonds, so this is not the final action the Agency or Council would take if the Agency goes forward with the financing. 

FISCAL IMPACT
None at this time.
