The Bonds will be issued in substantially the form of Exhibit A and will be registered, transferred and exchanged as provided in Section 206. The Bonds are dated the Closing Date. The Bonds will mature and become due on the Stated Maturity (subject to optional and mandatory redemption prior to Stated Maturity as provided in Article III). The Bonds will bear interest on the Cumulative Principal Amount Outstanding at the Interest Rate from the Closing Date and the date of receipt of each Purchase Price Installment by the Paying Agent pursuant to the Purchase Agreement (as set forth on Schedule A to a Bond) or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or provided for. Interest is computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months and is payable on each Interest Payment Date.

 

Section 204. Designation of Paying Agent. The City has designated the Paying Agent as the City’s paying agent for the payment of the principal of and interest on the Bonds, bond registrar for the registration, transfer and exchange of Bonds and escrow agent with respect to the funds established with the Paying Agent under the Escrow Agreement.

 

Section 205. Method and Place of Payment of Bonds.

 

(a) Payment of the Bonds will be made with any coin or currency that is legal tender for the payment of debts due the United States of America on the payment date.

 

(b) The payment of the principal of and redemption premium, if any, payable on each Bond at Stated Maturity or upon earlier redemption and the interest payable on each Bond on any Interest Payment Date will be made by check or draft mailed by the Paying Agent to the address of the Owner shown in the Bond Register. The principal of and redemption premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds is payable by electronic transfer in immediately available federal funds to a bank in the continental United States of America pursuant to instructions from any Owner received by the Paying Agent prior to the Record Date.

 

(c) Payments of principal on the Bonds pursuant to Article III may be made directly to the Owner without surrender of any Bond to the Paying Agent. Accordingly, any transferee of a Bond should verify with the Paying Agent the principal of the Bond outstanding prior to such purchase or transfer, and the records of the Paying Agent shall be conclusive for such purposes.

 

(d) The Paying Agent will keep a record of payment of principal of, redemption premium, if any, and interest on all Bonds and, at least annually at the request of the City, will forward a copy or summary of the record of payments to the City.

 

(e) The Bonds will be held by the Paying Agent in trust for each Owner, unless the Paying Agent is otherwise directed in writing by an Owner.

 

Section 206. Registration, Transfer and Exchange of Bonds.

 

(a) The City will cause the Paying Agent to keep the Bond Register. Each Bond when issued will be registered in the name of the Owner on the Bond Register. Bonds will be transferred and exchanged only upon the Bond Register.

 

(b) Upon surrender of any Bond at the payment office of the Paying Agent in St. Louis, Missouri (or other office designated by the Paying Agent), the Paying Agent will transfer or exchange the Bond for a new Bond or Bonds in any authorized denomination of the same Stated Maturity and in the same aggregate principal amount as the Bond which was presented for transfer or exchange. All Bonds presented for transfer or exchange must be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer or authorization for exchange, in a form and with guarantee of signature satisfactory to the Paying Agent, duly executed by the Owner or by the Owner’s authorized agent. All Bonds presented for transfer or exchange must be surrendered to the Paying Agent for cancellation.

 

(c) For every exchange or transfer of Bonds the City or the Paying Agent may levy a charge sufficient to reimburse it for any tax, fee or other governmental charge required to be paid for the exchange or transfer. The person requesting the exchange or transfer must pay the charge. Payment of the charge is a condition precedent to the exchange or transfer. If any Owner fails to provide a correct taxpayer identification number to the Paying Agent, the Paying Agent may make a charge against the Owner sufficient to pay any governmental charge required to be paid as a result of such failure. In compliance with Section 3406 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, this amount may be deducted by the Paying Agent from amounts payable to the Owner under this Ordinance and the Bonds.

 

(d) The City and the Paying Agent will treat the person in whose name any Bond is registered on the Bond Register as the absolute owner of the Bond, whether or not payment of the Bond is overdue, for the purpose of receiving payment of the principal of, redemption premium, if any, and interest on the Bond and for all other purposes. All payments made to any Owner or upon the Owner’s order will be valid and effectual to satisfy and discharge the City’s liability for payment of the Bond to the extent of the sum or sums paid. Neither the City nor the Paying Agent will be affected by any notice to the contrary.

 

(e) At reasonable times and under reasonable rules established by the Paying Agent, the Owners of 25% or more in principal amount of the Outstanding Bonds, or their representative designated in a manner satisfactory to the Paying Agent, may inspect and copy the Bond Register.

 

Section 207. Execution, Authentication and Delivery of Bonds.

 

(a) Each Bond must be signed by the manual or facsimile signature of the Mayor and attested by the manual or facsimile signature of the City Clerk, and have the official seal of the City affixed or imprinted thereon. If any officer whose manual or facsimile signature appears on any Bond ceases to be an officer before the delivery of any Bond signed by the officer, the manual or facsimile signature on the Bond will be valid and sufficient for all purposes of this Ordinance.

 

(b) The Mayor and the City Clerk are directed to prepare and execute the Bonds as specified in this Article, and when executed, to deliver the Bonds to the Paying Agent for authentication. Each Bond will be authenticated by any authorized signatory of the Paying Agent. No Bond is entitled to any security or benefit under this Ordinance or is valid or obligatory for any purpose until authenticated by the Paying Agent.

 

(c) Prior to the Completion of Funding, promptly upon the receipt by the Paying Agent of each Purchase Price Installment paid by the Owner in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, an authorized signatory of the Paying Agent will endorse Schedule A to a Bond with the date of receipt of the Purchase Price Installment, the amount of the Purchase Price Installment and the resulting Cumulative Principal Amount Outstanding. No further entries to Schedule A will be made after the Completion of Funding.

 

Section 208. Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Bonds.

 

(a) If (i) any mutilated Bond is surrendered to the Paying Agent, or the City and the Paying Agent receive evidence to their satisfaction of the mutilation, destruction, loss or theft of any Bond, and (ii) there is delivered to the City and the Paying Agent security or indemnity as required by them, in the absence of notice to the City or the Paying Agent that the Bond has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the City will execute and the Paying Agent will register and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond, a new Bond of the same Stated Maturity and of like tenor and principal amount. If the Bond has become or is about to become due, the City may pay the Bond instead of issuing a new Bond.

 

(b) Upon the issuance of any new Bond under this Section, the City or the Paying Agent may require the payment by the Owner of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge imposed and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Paying Agent) connected with the issuance of the Bond.

 

(c) Every new Bond issued pursuant to this Section in lieu of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond will constitute a replacement of the prior obligation of the City, whether or not the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Bond is enforceable by anyone at any time, and will be entitled to all the benefits of this Ordinance equally and ratably with all other Outstanding Bonds.

 

Section 209. Cancellation and Destruction of Bonds Upon Payment. All Bonds which have been paid or redeemed or which have otherwise been surrendered to the Paying Agent, either at or before Stated Maturity, will be canceled immediately upon the payment or redemption and the Paying Agent’s receipt of the Bonds. The Paying Agent will periodically destroy canceled Bonds. The Paying Agent will execute a certificate in duplicate describing the destroyed Bonds and file an executed counterpart of the certificate with the City.

 

Section 210. Sale of the Bonds; Authorization and Execution of Documents.

 

(a) The Bonds will be sold to the Owner at the purchase price of 100% of the initial installment paid on the Closing Date plus each Purchase Price Installment made by the Owner thereafter pursuant to Section 3.3 of the Purchase Agreement, without accrued interest.

 

(b) The City is authorized to enter into the Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Grant Agreement, in substantially the forms presented to the Governing Body. The Mayor is authorized to accept the Interest Rate. The CFO/Director of Finance is authorized to execute the Purchase Agreement and the Escrow Agreement, and the Director of Water Services is authorized to execute the Grant Agreement, each for and on behalf of and as the act and deed of the City, with changes approved by such officer, which approval will be conclusively evidenced by the signature of such officer. Each of the Mayor, CFO/Director of Finance and Director of Water Services is further authorized and directed to execute other documents, certificates and instruments that are necessary or desirable to carry out the intent of this Ordinance. The City Clerk is authorized and directed to attest the execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Grant Agreement and any other documents, certificates and instruments that are necessary or desirable to carry out the intent of this Ordinance.

The City has selected and hereby retains Gilmore & Bell, P.C., Kansas City, Missouri to serve as local bond counsel for this transaction.

REDEMPTION OF BONDS

 

Section 301. Optional Redemption. At the option of the City, with the prior written consent of the Owner, Bonds may be called for redemption and payment prior to Stated Maturity in whole or in part at any time, at the redemption price of 100% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest thereon to the date of redemption.

The Owner will provide a replacement Exhibit B reflecting the reductions to the principal amounts to the Paying Agent and the City, which will be binding on the City absent manifest error and will replace the previous Exhibit B without any further action on the part of the City. The revised Exhibit B is subject to such verification requirements as may be reasonably established by the Paying Agent.

(b) All redemption notices will be dated and include the following information:

ADDITIONAL BONDS

 

Section 801. Prior Lien Bonds. Except as provided in Section 804, the City will not issue any debt obligations payable out of the Net Revenues which are superior in lien, security or otherwise to the Bonds.

 

Section 802. Parity Lien Bonds or Obligations.

 

(a) The City will not issue any additional bonds or other long-term obligations payable out of the Net Revenues of the System that stand on parity or equality with the Bonds unless the following conditions are met:

 

(1) the City is not in default in the payment of principal or interest on the Bonds or any Parity Bonds or in making any deposit into the funds and accounts under this Ordinance or any Parity Ordinance; and

 

(2) for so long as any of the Bonds remain Outstanding, the City provides to the Owner a certificate showing either of the following:

 

(A) the average annual Net Revenues plus Administrative Service Fees as set forth in the two most recent annual audits for Fiscal Years preceding the issuance of additional bonds, are at least 110% of the average annual debt service on the System Revenue Bonds, including the additional bonds proposed to be issued, to be paid out of the Net Revenues in all succeeding Fiscal Years. Interest to be paid on any SRF Leveraged Program Bonds may be reduced by the SRF Subsidy, if any. If the City has made any increase in rates for the use and services of the System and the increase has not been in effect during all of the two Fiscal Years for which annual audits are available, the City may add the additional Net Revenues which would have resulted if the rate increase had been in effect for the entire period to the audited Net Revenues, as certified by a Consultant; or

 

(B) the estimated average annual Net Revenues plus Administrative Service Fees for the two Fiscal Years immediately following the Fiscal Year in which the improvements to the System being financed by the additional bonds are to be in commercial operation, as certified by a Consultant, is at least 110% of the average annual debt service on the System Revenue Bonds, including the additional bonds proposed to be issued, to be paid out of the Net Revenues in succeeding Fiscal Years following the commencement of commercial operation of the improvements. Interest to be paid on any SRF Leveraged Program Bonds may be reduced by the SRF Subsidy, if any. In determining the amount of estimated Net Revenues for the purpose of this subsection, a Consultant may adjust the estimated net income and revenues by adding the estimated increase in Net Revenues resulting from any increase in rates for the use and services of the System approved by the City and to become effective during the two Fiscal Years immediately following the Fiscal Year in which the improvements to the System being financed by the additional bonds are to be in commercial operation.

 

(b) If the conditions set forth in this Section are satisfied, the City (i) may issue additional revenue bonds or other obligations of the City on a parity with the Bonds and that enjoy complete equality of the lien on the Net Revenues with the Bonds, (ii) may make equal provision for paying the additional revenue bonds or other obligations from the Revenue Fund, and (iii) may secure the additional revenue bonds or other obligations by funding reasonable System debt service accounts and debt service reserve accounts from the Net Revenues.

 

Section 803. Junior Lien Bonds. Nothing in this Article prohibits or restricts the right of the City to issue additional revenue obligations, including revenue bonds, for the purpose of extending, improving, enlarging, repairing or altering the System, or refunding obligations issued for such purposes, that are subordinate to the Bonds if at the time of the issuance of the additional revenue obligations the City is not in default in the performance of any covenant or agreement in this Ordinance. If the City is in default in paying either interest on or principal of the Bonds, the City will not make any payments on the subordinate revenue obligations until the default is cured. Subject to the limitations in this Section, the City may make provision for paying the principal of and interest on the subordinate revenue bonds or obligations from moneys in the Revenue Fund.

 

Section 804. Refunding Bonds.

 

(a) The City may, without complying with the provisions of Section 802, refund any of the Bonds or any Outstanding Parity Bonds in a manner that provides debt service savings to the City, and the refunding bonds so issued will be on a parity with any of the Bonds that are not refunded and any Outstanding Parity Bonds. If the Bonds are refunded in part and the refunding bonds bear a higher average rate of interest or become due on a date earlier than that of the Bonds that are refunded, the City must obtain the prior written consent of the Owner to the issuance of the refunding bonds.

 

(b) The City may refund any of the Outstanding Senior Bonds in a manner which provides debt service savings to the City in each subsequent Fiscal Year, and the refunding bonds so issued may have a priority lien on the Revenues of the System.

 

ARTICLE IX

 

DEFAULT AND REMEDIES

 

Section 901. Event of Default. If (i) the City defaults in the payment of the principal of or interest on any of the Bonds, or (ii) the City or its Governing Body or any of its officers, agents or employees fails or refuses to comply with any provision of this Ordinance, the Constitution or statutes of the State, the Purchase Agreement or the Escrow Agreement and default continues for a period of 60 days after written notice specifying the non-payment default has been given to the City by the Owner of any Bond then Outstanding, at any time thereafter and while the default continues, the City shall pay to DNR the penalties assessed by DNR in accordance with the Regulations.

 

Section 902. Remedies.

 

(a) The provisions of this Ordinance constitute a contract between the City and the Owners of the Bonds. The Owner or Owners of not less than 10% in principal amount of the Bonds at the time Outstanding have the right for the equal benefit and protection of all Owners of Bonds similarly situated:

 

(1) by any proceeding at law or in equity to enforce the rights of the Owner or Owners against the City and its officers, agents and employees, and to compel the performance by the City of its duties and obligations under this Ordinance, the Constitution and the laws of the State;

 

(2) by any proceeding at law or in equity to require the City, its officers, agents and employees to account as if they were the trustees of an express trust; and

 

(3) by any proceeding at law or in equity to enjoin any act or thing which is unlawful or in violation of the rights of the Owners of the Bonds.

 

(b) Any amounts paid on the Bonds to the Owners will be applied first to interest and second to principal, to the extent due and payable.

 

Section 903. Limitation on Rights of Owners. No Owner has any right in any manner whatever by the Owner’s action to affect, disturb or prejudice the security granted and provided for in, or enforce any right under, this Ordinance, except in the manner provided in this Ordinance. All proceedings at law or in equity will be for the equal benefit of all Owners.

 

Section 904. Remedies Cumulative. No remedy conferred upon the Owners is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy. Each remedy is in addition to every other remedy and may be exercised without exhausting any other remedy conferred under this Ordinance. No waiver by any Owner of any default or breach of duty or contract of the City under this Ordinance will affect any subsequent default or breach of duty or contract by the City or impair any rights or remedies thereon. No delay or omission of any Owner to exercise any right or power accruing upon any default will impair any right or power or will be construed to be a waiver of any default. Every substantive right and every remedy conferred upon the Owners of the Bonds by this Ordinance may be enforced and exercised from time to time and as often as may be expedient. If any Owner discontinues any proceeding or the decision in the proceeding is against the Owner, the City and the Owners of the Bonds will be restored to their former positions and rights under this Ordinance.

 

Section 905. No Obligation to Levy Taxes. Nothing in this Ordinance imposes any duty or obligation on the City to levy any taxes either to meet any obligation incurred under this Ordinance or to pay the principal of or interest on the Bonds.

 

ARTICLE X

 

DEFEASANCE

 

Section 1001. Defeasance. When all of the Bonds shall have been paid and discharged, then the requirements contained in this Ordinance and the pledge of revenues made hereunder and all other rights granted hereby shall terminate. Bonds shall be deemed to have been paid and discharged within the meaning of this Ordinance if there shall have been deposited with the Paying Agent, or other bank or trust company located in the State of Missouri, having full trust powers and meeting the requirements of a successor Paying Agent (as set forth in the Escrow Agreement) impressed with a first lien to the Paying Agent for the benefit of the Owners, at or prior to Stated Maturity or redemption date of said Bonds, in trust for and irrevocably appropriated thereto, moneys and/or non-callable Defeasance Securities (the “Defeasance Escrow”) which, together with the interest to be earned on any such obligations, will be sufficient for the payment of the principal of said Bonds and interest to accrue to the Stated Maturity or date of redemption, as the case may be, or if default in such payment shall have occurred on such date, then to the date of the tender of such payments, provided, however, that if any such Bonds shall be redeemed prior to Stated Maturity, (i) the City shall have elected to redeem such Bonds, and (ii) either notice of such redemption shall have been given or the City shall have given irrevocable instructions to the Paying Agent to redeem such Bonds; and provided further, however, there shall be filed with the City, the Owner and the Paying Agent an opinion of Bond Counsel to the effect that the conditions for the defeasance of the Bonds pursuant to this Section have been complied with and, if the payment of the Bonds at Stated Maturity or upon redemption will occur more than 90 days after the deposit of the Defeasance Escrow and interest on the Defeasance Escrow is to be used to pay debt service on the Bonds, the written report of an independent certified public accountant evidencing the sufficiency of the Defeasance Escrow. Any moneys and obligations which at any time shall be deposited with the Paying Agent, or other bank by or on behalf of the City, for the purpose of paying and discharging any of the Bonds shall be and are hereby assigned, transferred and set over to the Paying Agent or other bank in trust for the respective Owners of the Bonds, and such moneys shall be and are hereby irrevocably appropriated to the payment and discharge of this Ordinance.

PRINCIPAL AMOUNT: NOT TO EXCEED SIXTEEN MILLION DOLLARS

 

The CITY OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, a constitutional charter city and political subdivision of the State of Missouri (the “City”), for value received, hereby promises to pay to the Owner shown above, or registered assigns, the Cumulative Principal Amount Outstanding set forth on Schedule A to this Bond on the Maturity Date shown above, and to pay interest thereon at the Interest Rate per annum shown above, on January 1 and July 1 in each year, commencing July 1, 2010 (each an “Interest Payment Date”), from the date shown on Schedule A or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. Terms not otherwise defined in this Bond have the respective meanings as set forth in the Ordinance.

 

The principal of this Bond shall be paid at maturity or upon earlier redemption to the person in whose name this Bond is registered on the Bond Register at the maturity or redemption date thereof, upon presentation and surrender of this Bond at the payment office of UMB BANK, N.A. in the City of St. Louis, Missouri (the “Paying Agent”). The payment of the principal of and redemption premium, if any, payable on this Bond at maturity or upon earlier redemption and the interest payable on this Bond on any Interest Payment Date will be made by check or draft mailed by the Paying Agent to the address of the Owner shown in the Bond Register. The principal of and redemption premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds is payable by electronic transfer in immediately available federal funds to a bank in the continental United States of America pursuant to instructions from any Owner received by the Paying Agent prior to the Record Date. The principal of and interest on this Bond is payable in lawful money of the United States of America.

This Bond is one of a duly authorized series of bonds of the City designated Sewerage System Revenue Bonds (State of Missouri – Direct Loan Program – ARRA) Series 2009B” (the “Bonds”), issued by the City for the purpose of extending and improving the sewerage system owned and operated by the City (said sewerage system, together with all future improvements and extensions thereto hereafter constructed or acquired by the City, being herein called the “System”), under the authority of and in full compliance with Chapter 250 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, as amended, and pursuant to an election duly held in the City and an ordinance duly adopted by the governing body of the City (the “Ordinance”).

 

At the option of the City, the Bonds may be called for redemption and payment prior to maturity in whole or in part as provided in the Ordinance, with the prior written consent of the Owners.

 

The Bonds are subject to mandatory redemption and payment prior to maturity pursuant to the mandatory redemption requirements of the Ordinance, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued interest to the redemption date.

 

Except as otherwise provided in the Ordinance, notice of redemption, unless waived, is to be given by the Paying Agent by mailing an official redemption notice by registered or certified mail at least 15 days, but not more than 30 days, prior to the date fixed for redemption, to the Owner of the Bond or Bonds to be redeemed at the address shown on the Bond Register or at such other address as is furnished in writing by such Owner to the Paying Agent. Notice of redemption having been given or waived as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions of Bonds so to be redeemed shall, on the redemption date, become due and payable at the redemption price therein specified, and from and after such date (unless the City shall default in the payment of the redemption price) such Bonds or portions of Bonds shall cease to bear interest.

 

The Bonds are limited obligations of the City payable solely from, and secured as to the payment of principal and interest by a pledge of, the Net Revenues. The taxing power of the City is not pledged to the payment of the Bonds either as to principal or interest. The Bonds do not constitute a general obligation of the City or an indebtedness of the City within the meaning of any constitutional, statutory or charter provision, limitation or restriction. Under the conditions set forth in the Ordinance, the City has the right to issue additional parity bonds payable from, and secured by, the Net Revenues.

 

The Bonds are subordinate with respect to payment of principal and interest from the Net Revenues and in all other respects to the Outstanding Senior Bonds. In the event of any default in the payment of either principal of or interest on any of the Outstanding Senior Bonds, the Net Revenues will be applied solely to the payment of the principal of and interest on the Outstanding Senior Bonds until the default is cured. The Bonds are issued on parity with the Outstanding Parity Bonds.

 

Under the conditions set forth in the Ordinance, the City has the right to issue additional bonds payable from the Net Revenues; provided, however, that such additional bonds may be so issued only in accordance with and subject to the covenants, conditions and restrictions relating thereto set forth in the Ordinance.

 

The City covenants with the Owner of this Bond to keep and perform all covenants and agreements contained in the Ordinance, and the City will fix, establish, maintain and collect rates, fees and charges for the use and services furnished by or through the System to produce Revenues sufficient to pay the operation and maintenance costs of the System, pay the principal of and interest on the Bonds and provide reasonable and adequate reserve funds. Reference is made to the Ordinance for a description of the agreements made by the City with respect to the collection, segregation and application of the Revenues, the nature and extent of the security for the Bonds, the rights, duties and obligations of the City with respect to the Bonds, and the rights of the Owners.

 

The Bonds are issuable in the form of fully registered Bonds without coupons in the denomination of $100 or any integral multiple of $0.01 in excess thereof.

 

This Bond may be transferred or exchanged, as provided in the Ordinance, only upon the registration books kept for that purpose at the above-mentioned office of the Paying Agent, upon surrender of this Bond together with a written instrument of transfer or exchange satisfactory to the Paying Agent duly executed by the Owner or the Owner’s duly authorized agent, and thereupon a new Bond or Bonds in any authorized denomination of the same maturity and in the same aggregate principal amount shall be issued to the transferee in exchange therefor as provided in the Ordinance, and upon payment of the charges therein prescribed. The City and the Paying Agent may deem and treat the person in whose name this Bond is registered on the Bond Register as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, the principal or redemption price hereof and interest due hereon and for all other purposes.

 

This Bond will not be valid or be entitled to any security or benefit under the Ordinance until the Paying Agent has executed the Certificate of Authentication.

 

IT IS HEREBY CERTIFIED AND DECLARED that all acts, conditions and things required to exist, happen and be performed precedent to the issuance of the Bonds have existed, happened and been performed in due time, form and manner as required by law, and that before the issuance of the Bonds, provision has been duly made for the collection, segregation and application of the income and revenues of the System as provided in the Ordinance.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the City of Kansas City, Missouri has executed this Bond by causing it to be signed by the manual signature of its Mayor and attested by the manual signature of its City Clerk, and its official seal to be affixed hereto or imprinted hereon.
