Cokato Charitable Trust, a Minnesota charitable trust (the “Borrower”), has requested that the City issue the Bonds pursuant to the Act to refund the City’s outstanding Senior Housing Revenue Refunding Bonds (Cokato Charitable Trust Project), Series 2006A (the “Prior Bonds”), issued in the original aggregate principal amount of $5,080,000.

Following the public hearing, the City will consider adoption of a resolution granting approval for the issuance of the Bonds in accordance with the Act.
The aggregate face amount of the Bonds proposed to be issued is presently estimated not to exceed $5,000,000. The Bonds may be issued in one or more series. The Bonds to be issued by the City will constitute special, limited obligations of the City payable solely from the revenues expressly pledged to the payment thereof, and will not constitute a general or moral obligation of the City, and will not be secured by the taxing powers of the City or any assets or property of the City. Before issuing the Bonds, the City will enter into an agreement with the Borrower whereby the Borrower will be required to make payments at least sufficient at all times to pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds when due.
