§                     City Council adopts the Charlotte Water Capital Investment Plan which includes capital projects to be funded with debt proceeds. The debt issuance is planned in two steps; a short-term construction period draw program lasting up to 36 months which will then be converted into long-term, fixed rate revenue bonds once construction nears completion.

§                     This financing approach reduces interest cost, promotes rate stability, and provides flexibility in the timing of the spending.

§                     The construction period financing will be in the form of a $250,000,000 privately placed drawdown program, allowing the city to reimburse expenses on a monthly basis during construction and eliminating interest expense on funds not yet expended on the projects.

§                     The projects being funded are concentrated in two different areas:

-                     Maintenance of existing treatment facilities to ensure reliable treatment process and regulatory compliance, and

-                     Rehabilitation and replacement of existing water and sewer infrastructure that has met its useful performance life.                     

§                     This action does not require rate increases.

§                     The North Carolina Local Government Commission is expected to review and approve this financing on June 1, 2021.
