In order for the City to proceed with the financing, City Council must pass a borrowing bylaw
and provide a copy to the bank.
RECOMMENDATION IMPLICATIONS
Financial
The debt issuance was approved by City Council in January 2015. Financing is required in
order to carry out the 2015 General Capital Program. Should there be a surplus in this
program for 2015, City Council will be presented with options for using the surplus.
Policy and/or Strategic
Negotiations were done in good faith based on the Council directive. Failure to follow
through on the agreed to terms may negatively impact the City’s reputation and jeopardize
future financing opportunities.
COMMUNICATION
This report will be available on the City’s website and provided to the bank along with a
certified copy of the Borrowing Bylaw. Public notice has been given pursuant to Section 101
of The Cities Act.
DELEGATED AUTHORITY
City Council approval is required to take out long term debt.
Respectfully submitted,
Jeff Ward, CPA, CA
City Treasurer
