NOTICE OF ADOPTION OF PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION

Notice is hereby given pursuant to Indiana Code § 6-1.1-20-3.5 that the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of Union County Public Library (the “Library”) did, on June 27, 2022, make a preliminary determination to issue bonds and enter into a lease agreement (the “Lease”) for the renovation of and improvements to the Union County Public Library, including the construction of additions, site improvements and the purchase of equipment and technology (the “Project”). The Lease will be for a maximum term of 23 years with a maximum annual Lease rental of $505,000. The maximum annual Lease rental has been estimated based upon an estimated principal amount of bonds of $5,900,000 and estimated interest rate of 5.00% and total interest costs of $3,625,139.

As required by Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.5(b)(1), the following information was available to the public at the public hearing on the preliminary determination: (i) the Library’s current and projected annual debt service payments divided by the net assessed value of taxable property within the library district, which is 0.13%; and (ii) the sum of the Library’s outstanding long term debt plus the outstanding long term debt of other taxing units that include any other territory of the library district divided by the net assessed value of taxable property within the Library district, which is 4.76%.

The Library’s current debt service levy is $128,772 and the current debt service rate is $0.0352. After the Library enters into the proposed Lease and the bonds are issued, the debt service levy will increase by a maximum of $505,000 and the debt service rate will increase by a maximum rate of $0.1288. However, as existing obligations mature, the anticipated increase to the Debt Service Fund tax rate is expected to be $0.0936. The purpose of the Lease is to provide for the Project.

The estimated amount of the Library’s debt service levy and rate that will result during the following 10 years if the Library enters into the Lease and issues the bonds, after considering any changes that will occur to the debt service levy and rate during that period on account of any outstanding bonds or lease obligations that will mature or terminate during that period:

The lovely Kate pointed me towards the crave series by Tracy Wolff and they were AWESOME!!

Too many...

Teachers, be sure to bring your kiddos to visit our Welcome Back to School Pop-up Storywalk at the playgrounds of Liberty Elementary School and College Corner Union School.

Be sure to tell your students to remember the secret code and they can stop by our library and tell a librarian at the Children's dept. the code for a popsicle!
