Title
Consider and take action on a resolution consenting to the sale and issuance of Unlimited Tax Refunding Bonds, Series 2015C for the Galveston County MUD #43 in an amount not to exceed $6,890,000 and authorizing the Mayor to execute and the City Secretary to attest same for and on behalf of the City of League City (Director of Finance)

Background:
Approval of this item will authorize the Galveston County MUD #43 (Tuscan Lakes) to issue refunding bonds that will save $1,527,154 over the remaining term of the bond.

On June 2, 2015, the Board of the MUD authorized the District's consultants to proceed with the preparation of the various documents related to the issuance of a proposed refunding bond issue.

The proposed bonds are structured with the same maturity schedule as the bonds being refunded (through Fiscal Year 2036), so there will be no extension of the debt. The financing, as projected on June 11, 2015, will provide a 18.78% in present value savings ($909,260) and $1,527,154 of gross savings, after all issuance costs. The District's 2015 Preliminary Taxable Assessed Valuation as provided by the Galveston Central Appraisal District is $324,224,413, and their 2014 tax rate is $1.00 per $100 assessed valuation.
