Opening Statement, Mayor Seth Goodman:

Mayor Seth Goodman opened the meeting by reading a statement about the Bond Issuance Notification Act of the State of Illinois. Mayor Goodman shared that residents, taxpayers and other parties would be able to issue their views. He passed the conversation onto Treasurer Chuck Conze who said this is something that is done every three years.

He said the last time, the bond proceeds were received in 2017, so we are at the end of a three year cycle.He said what they would intend to do with this is keep the levy for the first year. He said currently the bond rates are pretty good.He said some of the things-this has been used for a generator, improvements to the councilchambers, the garage door for the fire station. He said the chief could tell people about it more than he could ...but also the street garage. He said there was some cost to the city-$350,000. He also referenced the pumper truck. He said the city had to have the pumper, they took a short-term loan on it. They used a considerable part of the bond proceeds to pay for it. Those were some of the types of things they had used this for.

City Administrator Elizabeth Kavelman wanted to clarify that the money will not be used to fund any other organizations. He saidit is not used for any other costs.


Alderman Welch motioned to adjourn, seconded by Alderman Keller. There being no discussion to come before the City Council of Lincoln, Mayor Goodman called the special meeting to a close at 7:06 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted By:

Alex Williams, Recording Secretary
