MEMORANDUM
TO: Mayor and City Council
FR: Chad D. Nehring, City Manager
Date: June 9, 2016
RE: Agenda Comments for Regular Meeting of June 13, 2016
REGULAR MEETING AGENDA:
III.A. Ordinance 2016-4 — All Matters Related to the Issuance of Certificates of
Obligation, Series 2016
This ordinance is the official authorization to issue the 2016 Certificates of
Obligation for the funding priorities previously discussed with the City Council,
consisting of the cash flow to fund initial construction of Portacool Park, Perry
Sampson Park enhancement plan, water system improvements and major sewer
treatment plant renovation.. The total issuance is four million dollars over twenty
year annual notes and obligated against the combination of utility revenues and
property taxes. Although other payments or contributions are anticipated to be
used for annual repayments, the bonds are not issued with proceeds of any other
agreements as collateral but that action is not prohibited by any bond covenants.
Council has already authorized the two primary projects which have already been
initiated. The remaining activities could be revisited if necessary for additional
information or clarification. This action has been prepared by our financial
advisor and will be the final activity for completion of the sale, which results will
be reported to Council.
III. B. Ordinance 2016- 5 — Establishing the Recreation Fund
With the creation of a City sponsored recreation program, and in consultation
with other governmental entities and our auditor, the recommendation is to create
a separate proprietary use fund to account for activities related to recreation
services and activities. This will remain a portion of the governmental activities
in the annual statement but will be separately accounted as with trust funds and
other special use funds. Primarily because these types of activities tend to cross
budget years, an independent fund allows fund balances such as previously paid
registration fees, sponsorships or other revenues to remain within the accounting
activity center rather than be credited to general revenue in one budget year while
expenses would fall into the following budget cycle. It also keeps all proceeds for
these activities dedicated to these purposes and gives a much more accurate
financial activity report over multiple years. Staff is requesting approval.
III.C. Resolution 2016- 15 — Authorizing Execution of Contract for Construction
Management at Risk Services for Portacool Park
Staff with the assistance of MHS Planning, has solicited and evaluated the lone
response for services related to construction management services for the
Portacool Park project. Berry & Clay has performed services for the City in
recent years including the renovation of Mini-Park, Community House and City
Hall. A recommendation from MHS is included and staff concurs with the
recommendation to proceed with a very competent construction management
firm. Upon approval, we will finalize terms ofthe contract upon the review ofthe
City Attorney. Staffrecommends Council authorize execution ofthis agreement.
III.D. Appointments:
1 — Reserve Police Officer
The Chief has submitted recommendation for appointment of a reserve
officer to replace a currently vacant position within this volunteer force.
Items of Interest:
1) Gene Keenan— Republic Services
Mr. Keenan will be present to discuss any issues and provide their annual
partnership for annual community festivals.

redemption price for the Certificates, or the principal amount thereof to be redeemed, shall be

become due and payable, and interest thereon shall cease to accrue from and after the
redemption date therefor, provided moneys sufficient for the payment of such Certificate ( or of
the principal amount thereof to be redeemed) at the then applicable redemption price are held

the Certificates, unless certain prerequisites to such redemption required by this Ordinance
have been met and moneys sufficient to pay the principal of and premium, if any, and interest

to the giving of such notice of redemption, such notice may state that said redemption is
conditional upon the satisfaction of such prerequisites and receipt of such moneys by the
Paying Agent/Registrar on or prior to the date fixed for such redemption. If a conditional notice
of redemption is given and such prerequisites to the redemption are not satisfied or sufficient
moneys are not received, such notice shall be of no force and effect, the City shall not redeem
such Certificates and the Paying Agent/Registrar shall give notice, in the manner in which the
notice of redemption was given, to the effect that the Certificates have not been redeemed.

or Certificates surrendered for transfer.
At the option of the Holder, Certificates ( other than the Initial Certificate(s) authorized in
Section 8) may be exchanged for other Certificates of authorized denominations and having the
same Stated Maturity, bearing the same rate of interest and of like aggregate principal amount

obligation to pay, and entitled to the same benefits under this Ordinance, as the Certificates

expense or service charge to the Holder, except as otherwise herein provided, and except that
the Paying Agent/Registrar shall require payment by the Holder requesting such transfer or
exchange of any tax or other governmental charges required to be paid with respect to such
transfer or exchange.
Certificates cancelled by reason of an exchange or transfer pursuant to the provisions
hereof are hereby defined to be " Predecessor Certificates," evidencing all or a portion, as the

registered and delivered in the exchange or transfer. Additionally, the term " Predecessor
Certificates" shall include any mutilated, lost, destroyed, or stolen Certificate for which a
replacement Certificate has been issued, registered and delivered in lieu thereof pursuant to the
provisions of Section 20 hereof and such new replacement Certificate shall be deemed to
evidence the same obligation as the mutilated, lost, destroyed, or stolen Certificate.
Neither the City nor the Paying Agent/ Registrar shall be required to issue or transfer to
an assignee of a Holder any Certificate called for redemption, in whole or in part, within 45 days
of the date fixed for the redemption of such Certificate; provided, however, such limitation on
transferability shall not be applicable to an exchange by the Holder of the unredeemed balance
of a Certificate called for redemption in part.
SECTION 6: Book-Entry-Only Transfers and Transactions. Notwithstanding the
provisions contained in Sections 3, 4, and 5 of this Ordinance relating to the payment, transfer,

duties as securities depository for the Certificates, the City covenants and agrees with the
Holders of the Certificates to cause Certificates to be printed in definitive form and issued

individuals executing the same shall cease to be such officer at the time of delivery of the
Certificates to the initial purchaser(s) and with respect to Certificates delivered in subsequent

certificate of registration substantially in the form provided in Section 9(d), manually executed by

27287086. 1/ 11606726 10
Certificate to an assignee of the registered owner within forty-five ( 45) days of the redemption
date therefor, provided, however, such limitation on transferability shall not be applicable to an
exchange by the registered owner of the unredeemed balance of a Certificate redeemed in part.
With respect to any optional redemption of the Certificates, unless certain prerequisites
to such redemption required by the Ordinance have been met and moneys sufficient to pay the
principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Certificates to be redeemed shall have
been received by the Paying Agent/Registrar prior to the giving of such notice of redemption,

such interest have been received from the City. Notice of the Special Record Date and of the
scheduled payment date of the past due interest ( which shall be 15 days after the Special
Record Date) shall be sent at least five ( 5) business days prior to the Special Record Date by
United States Mail, first class postage prepaid, to the address of each Holder appearing on the
Security Register at the close of business on the last business day next preceding the date of
mailing of such notice.
