Amending Chapter 2, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 2-1990, Debt policy, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter.


FINANCE AND GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Tammy Queen and Doug Buehler, testified that this ordinance would amend and, repeal, and replace Chapter 2 Code of Ordinances, Section 2-1990, debt policy. The City’s current Debt Policy, as codified by Section 2-1990, provides that “the policy shall be reviewed on an annual basis by the Director of Finance” and that “any modifications made to the policy must be approved by City Council”. The debt policy was last adopted by Ordinance No. 090129 on March 5, 2009, and amended by Ordinance 110333 on April 28, 2011. The current policy has been reviewed by the Director of Finance, city staff, and the City’s financial advisors. The policy was originally written in two distinct sections, one dealing with general debt issuance policies, and one dealing with debt derivative (swap) policies. This amendment combines both the general debt and the debt derivative policies into one policy, and cleans up language to modernize the policy. In addition, the amendment adds target debt ratios in Section k (4) b for General Obligation and Annual Appropriation debt as outlined by the Ordinance.
