TOWN OF NEW LISBON, NEW YORK
NOTICE OF ADOPTION OF A SUPPLEMENTAL BOND RESOLUTION SUBJECT TO A PERMISSIVE REFERENDUM
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Town Board of the Town of New Lisbon, Otsego County, New York (the “Town Board”) at a meeting thereof held on the 9th day of November 2022 duly adopted a supplemental bond resolution an abstract of which follows, which supplemental bond resolution is subject to the permissive referendum provisions provided in Article 7 of the Town Law.
The supplemental bond resolution, among other things, authorizes the Town of New Lisbon (the “Town”) to acquire and construct a new highway garage containing approximately 9,800 square feet, including, without limitation, grading and improvement of the site, original furnishings, equipment, machinery, or apparatus required for the purpose for which such building will be used, all as more particularly described in the Preliminary Architectural Feasibility Report dated May 2021 prepared by Delaware Engineering, D.P.C. (collectively, the “Highway Garage”), stating the estimated maximum cost of acquiring and constructing the Highway Garage, including preliminary costs and costs incidental thereto and the financing thereof is increased by $141,022 to $2,897,022, appropriating said amount therefore, and to finance said appropriation, authorizing $216,022 of the monies in the General Fund to be so applied and serial bonds of the Town to be issued in the aggregate principal amount of up to $2,681,000, pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of the Local Finance Law, constituting Chapter 33-A of the Consolidated Laws of the State of New York (the “Law”). It is noted in the supplemental bond resolution that the Town has applied for one or more loans and/or grants from the United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) to finance all or a portion of the costs of acquiring and constructing the Highway Garage and certain costs and fees, if any, relating to the loans or grants. The Town may, although it is not obligated to do so, sell the bonds and/or notes (and renewals thereof) authorized by the supplemental bond resolution to USDA as evidence of such loans. The Supervisor and the Clerk of the Town, each acting alone or together, are authorized in the supplemental bond resolution to execute and deliver on behalf of the Town such documents and instruments as USDA may require in order to obtain such loans or grants including, without limitation, one or more applications, project financing and loan agreements, grant agreements or similar documents. The supplemental bond resolution, further, noted that the proceeds of any grants received by the Town from USDA pertaining to the acquisition and construction of the Highway Garage will be applied to reduce the amount of bonds issued to finance such acquisition and construction. Except as supplemented by the supplemental bond resolution, the original bond resolution, adopted on July 13, 2021, remains in full force and effect and the terms and provisions thereof are confirmed in the supplemental bond resolution. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Town remains authorized to issue bonds and notes in an amount not to exceed $2,681,000 to finance the Project and to sell such bonds and notes to, and to enter into agreements with, USDA as provided in the original bond resolution.
It was also resolved that the foregoing supplemental bond resolution was adopted subject to a permissive referendum. The Town Board determined in the resolution, among other things, that the maturity of such bonds would exceed five (5) years and that the period of probable usefulness of the Highway Garage, as set forth in the Local Finance Law, is thirty (30) years.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that said supplemental bond resolution shall take effect thirty (30) days after its adoption, unless there shall be filed with the Town Clerk in the manner and time provided by the Town Law a petition protesting against the resolution and requesting that the matter be submitted to the electors of the Town for their approval or disapproval at a referendum as provided in the Town Law.
A complete copy of the supplemental bond resolution is available for inspection in the Town Clerk’s Office, located at 829 County Highway 16, Garrattsville, New York during regular business hours.
