A special meeting of the Board of Finance is being called to conduct a public hearing on Powder Ridge Financing. There are two actions the Board of Finance is contemplating that require a public hearing in advance of a town meeting.
They are as follows:
• The Board of Finance is seeking to retire the remaining $60k taxable component of the Powder Ridge debt. This is an un-budgeted item that would be paid out of the undesignated fund and requires approval at a town meeting. Public comment and questions are welcome in advance of a decision to request a town meeting.
• The Board of Finance is prepared to recommend the town secure permanent financing for the tax exempt component of the Powder Ridge debt. The permanent financing can be in the form of a Bond or a Note. Costs associated with the issuance of such debt are expected to be approximately $25,000. These costs are unbudgeted and would be paid out of the undesignated fund. This request requires approval at a town meeting. Public comment and questions are welcome in advance of a decision to request a town meeting.
