District Issues Bonds at Lower Rates than Expected

At their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, August 1, 2016, the Board of Trustees authorized the issuance of bonds related to the May 2016 referendum. Prior to the election, financial advisors predicted an interest rate of 2.875. However, due to the District's financial condition and other favorable market conditions, the financial advisors were able to secure an interest rate of 2.09% before fees are assessed. The effective rate after fees, came out to 2.34%. The sale was definitely a success as all bonds were sold in less than 2 hours.
