City of Bellmead issues $8.5 million in certificates of obligation

The City of Bellmead City Council, during its Aug. 12, 2014 regular monthly meeting passed an ordinance authorizing the issuance of $8.5 million in certificates of obligation. The City staff worked with the City’s financial advisor, Southwest Securities, to put together the financing. Earlier in the week, the City had received a bond rating of AA- from Standard and Poor’s related to the issuance of the certificates of obligation. This rating was up one level from the City’s previous rating of A+ issued in 1999.

The City received an interest rate of 2.97% on the certificates of obligation. Bo Thomas, City Manager, told the Council that “the City could not be happier with the results of the issuance of the CO’s.” Estimates were originally that the City could expect interest rates of 3.75% on the CO’s. As a result of the lower interest rates received the City will experience a savings of over $762,000 compared to the original expectations.

The certificates of obligations will fund various capital improvements though out the City including the purchase of (1) public safety vehicles, police vehicles and fire brush truck; (2) construction of a new Municipal Court building; (3) $2,000,000 in streets rehabilitation; (4) improvements to the current Police Department and Fire department buildings; and $4,000,000 for a new sewer interceptor.
