Mission Statement The Finance Department provides financial management services with integrity and accountability while improving service levels and reducing City costs.
News On November 24, 2014, Mayor and Council authorized staff in the Finance and Technology Department to take the necessary action to refinance outstanding Transportation, Water and Sewer, General Obligation (G.O.), and Municipal Property Corporation (MPC) bonds. Over the next several months, staff worked closely with RBC Capital Markets, the City's Financial Advisor and Greenberg Traurig, LLP, the City's Bond Counsel to develop the documentation, identify the structure of potential debt service cost savings through debt refinancing, and execute the transactions.
The bond refinancing was completed in March of 2015. Overall, the net present value savings on the four transactions totaled $48.1 million, with total cash savings of $49.4 million over the life of the bonds. Net present value (NPV) is the value of the savings in current dollars and the total savings is the actual cash savings throughout the life of the new bonds. Additional details on the refinancing were presented to the Council at their Workshop on April 21, 2015, and can be found by clicking here.
