G.O. Bond Maggie Burger, Speer Financial, explained to council the $4.3 million general obligation bond is taxable to investors and has annual appropriation with a true interest cost of 3.4125%. There are nine principle payments starting in 2020 and three years interest payments beginning F.Y. 16-17 through Fall 2019. Property tax proceeds generated from the minimum assessment agreement signed by East Penn Manufacturing will generate funds sufficient enough to make the principal and interest payment. Once the city’s $4.3 million debt is paid off the TIF proceeds are then rebated back to East Penn Manufacturing until that obligation is met.

Burger also presented an updated TIF report reflecting the new $4.3 million G.O. Bond payments.
