Project) Series 2018A and (ii) Taxable Health Care Facilities Revenue Bonds (Lyngblomsten Care Center Inc. Project) Series 2018B (collectively the “Bonds”); and

WHEREAS, proceeds of the Bonds will be used by the Borrower in order to (i) finance construction and equipping of improvements to an existing 277,000 square-foot, 237-bed skilled nursing facility located in the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota (the “City”), including to improve resident experience reducing the number of beds to 225; and (ii) pay a portion of the costs of issuing the Bonds (the “Project”) in the combined aggregate principal amount of approximately $10,000,000; and

WHEREAS, the Bonds are proposed to be issued under the terms of the Indenture of Trust, dated on or after May 1, 2018 (the “Indenture”), between the Port Authority and U.S. Bank National Association, as bond trustee (the “Trustee”); and

WHEREAS, the revenue bonds proposed to be issued by the Port Authority to finance the Project and the related costs will constitute revenue obligations secured solely by: (i) the revenues derived from the Loan Agreement; and (ii) other security provided or arranged by the Borrower; and

WHEREAS, Minnesota Statutes, Section 469.084, subd. 11, provides that any issue of revenue bonds authorized by the Port Authority shall be issued only with the consent of the City Council of the City of Saint Paul, by resolution adopted in accordance with law; and

WHEREAS, to meet the requirements of state law, the Port Authority has requested that the City Council give its requisite approval to the issuance of the proposed Bonds by the Port Authority, subject to final approval of the details of said bonds by the Port Authority; and

WHEREAS, a public hearing (the “Public Hearing”) on the Project and the issuance of the Bonds was held by the Board of Commissioners of the Port Authority on April 24, 2018 after notice of such Public Hearing was published, and materials made available for public inspection at the offices of the Port Authority, as required by Section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and the Act, at which Public Hearing all those appearing who so desired to speak were heard.
