Title
A Resolution Levying General Property Taxes to Help Defray the Cost of Debt Service on the General Obligation Refunding Bonds, Series 2014 of the Colorado Springs Briargate General Improvement District, Colorado Springs, Colorado, for the 2020 Budget Year

Presenter:
Charae McDaniel, Chief Financial Officer

Body
Summary:
Following the Public Hearing on November 26, 2019, the attached resolution is now presented for approval by City Council, sitting as the Board of Directors of the Colorado Springs Briargate General Improvement District (GID), to set and certify the 2019 mill levy at 12.000 mills on taxes payable in 2020 and authorize that it be certified to the Board of County Commissioners of El Paso County, Colorado. The 2019 levy of 12.000 mills for taxes payable in 2020 is unchanged from the prior year's mill levy.

Previous Council Action:
City Council created this GID in 2000 (Ordinance No. 00-127). In 2003, acting as the Board, Council approved the $8,800,000 in bonds issued for this GID (Ordinance No. 03-214). On October 14, 2014, City Council, acting as the Board, approved the issuance of $8,960,000 in refunding bonds (Ordinance No. 91-14).

The Board annually sets and certifies the mill levy, and then adopts the budget and appropriates the funding for the District.

Background:
City Council sits as the Board of Directors for each of the General Improvement Districts and is required to conduct a public hearing, set and certify the mill levy, adopt an annual budget, and appropriate the funding for the District.

Financial Implications:
Since the Colorado Springs Briargate GID is a separate entity, and its indebtedness is not an obligation of the City, there are no direct financial implications for the City of Colorado Springs.
