2. Resolution authorizing the issuance of conduit revenue refunding bonds under Minnesota Statutes, Sections 469.152 through 469.1655 for the Minnesota Public Radio Project, 480 Cedar Street and approving related documents; District 17, Ward 2

Kristin Guild, Interim Executive Director, stated this request is to authorize the issuance of up to $3.62 million in conduit revenue refunding bonds for Minnesota Public Radio. The bonds to be refunded were issued in 2010 and are private placement conduit bonds. The amount of issuance equals the balance at the time of proposed refunding. Conduit bonds do not constitute a debt or obligation of either the City or the HRA.

The HRA loan was subordinate to a loan from the Non-profit Assistance Fund, and the collateral was inadequate to cover even the first position loan.
