CUSD 200 – Interest Rate Risk

If the referendum passes….
In order to avoid unnecessary interest payments, bonds will be sold when the money is needed to pay for the projects. The current schedule is:

2017 (2018 tax year):  $45,500,000
2019 (2020 tax year): $37,400,000
2020 (2021 tax year): $22,700,000
2021 (2022 tax year): $26,900,000

Rates based upon market conditions as of December 6, 2016 plus 0.50%.


Higher interest rate results in higher property tax payments for bond interest.

Somewhere else, I recall seeing 4.9%
