Cudahy 2014 Borrowing Projects Summary Listing

March 7, 2014

After working on updating the City of Cudahy’s 5 year Financial Plan, the Mayor and Administration of the City of Cudahy has worked with the Finance Committee to move forward a package of Municipal Bonds and Notes for improvements which include repairing or replacing in part some of our aging infrastructure in our city. This process has taken approximately ten months of hard work and effort to get us to this point.

On the evening of March 4, 2014, Mr. Greg Johnson a representative of the cities Financial Consultant, Ehlers and Associates, provided the Common Council with a presentation on the presale reports for the impending municipal borrow.

The moving forward with this investment in our community is a combination of utilizing cash on hand to minimize the impact of borrowing, managing our current debt, and managing the new debt to have a minimal impact on our cities debt service.

The list below is a summary of projects needed in our community. The Common Council passed the Initial Borrowing Resolutions 6837, 6838, 6839, and 6840 at a meeting of the Common Council held March 4, 2014. The next steps in the process include a ratings conference with Moody’s and S&P, and then Final Resolutions and sales which will occur in early April 2014.
