Mayer moves forward with street improvement plan

Mayer City Council, during Monday’s meeting, scheduled a public hearing Monday, Feb. 27, on the intention to issue general obligation bonds and adopt a street reconstruction finance plan.
The council also adopted a resolution providing for the sale of $775,000 bonds. The city has retained Ehlers and Associates as its independent advisor for the bonds. Todd Hagen of Ehlers presented a pre-sale report, which included a summary of the process that will be followed.
The bonds will be designated as “bank qualified,” which can result in lower interest rates. The term of the bonds will be 15 years.
The city will request a new bond rating, but the city’s most recent bond issues were rated “AA” by S&P Global Ratings.
Hagen said demand for bonds is high, and similar bond issues have received many bids. The sale will be awarded in April.
