            Scott Stevenson, from DA Davidson presented to the board information on bonding for the renovation project.  Two scenarios were presented with structuring the debt with the conservation bonds debt as it would level out the impact on taxpayers.  He presented examples of the tax implications for residents.  The board will need to decide whether they would like to lock in the financing piece first or get bids on the project and then proceed with the financing.  The board is wanting to have informational meetings for the public and he said that he would be available to attend to assist in explaining the bonding aspect and the impact it would have on residents.
