$5,000,000 General Obligation Alternate Bonds (Waterworks and Sewerage Alternate Revenue Source), Series 2002.

Mr. Hughes informed the City Council we are required by State Statue to have a public hearing. The City of East Moline plans to issue up to and not to exceed $5,000,000 of General Obligation Alternate Revenue Source Bonds Series 2002 for the mandated construction improvements for the Water Plant. The City plans to issue $3,000,000 in GOA Bonds for these improvements, however the Council did set the maximum of $5,000,00 to give the City the flexibility it needed, in case the bids came in higher than anticipated, or it gave the Council the option of including some other infrastructure improvements throughout the City. This bond is subject to a back door referendum, and a notice was placed in the newspaper ten (10) days ago with petitions due in approximately twenty (20) days before this Council can take any action. Mayor Moreno opened the floor for public comments or questions, there were none. Public Hearing was adjourned at 6:43p.m.
