Commercial paper (CP) has provided an expedient, cost–effective method of accessing cash and providing interim financing. The CP notes are later refinanced into fixed rate bonds that match the useful life of the project or equipment being financed. This transaction represents the normal refunding of these commercial paper notes. On June 16, 2010, City Council approved the issuance of the City of Houston Certificate of Obligation (Demolition Program) Series 2010. The note had a 24 month maturity and a maturity date of June 30, 2012. The Finance Working Group (FWG) is considering either refunding this note into long-term bonds in conjunction with the PIB Series 2012 or extending the maturity date of the note. Additionally we will be refinancing some currently outstanding bonds at lower current market interest rates which result in present value savings currently estimated at $14.1 million. 3 General Obligation Refunding Bonds Series 2012
