10:00 pm
and even less. it could be down to $50 million. this could give us the authorization to go up to $70 if rates were at a favorable point. the spending authority however on our latest roster is only $40 million. at the time we were preparing that we weren't anticipating this level of bond capacity. that would mean if the department of finance approves that $40 million we can issue bonds for $70 million and put the remaining proceeds under the following roth period if that's what we have left over. the other part of this resolution is to actually go to the board of supervisors because the bond issuance needs to be approved by the board of supervisors and the budget we only asked for approval of
10:01 pm
$58.6. to get the $60 million it would require us to go to the board of supervisors to get approval for the bond capacity. this would also direct staff to prepare that resolution for the board of supervisors to increase that. so, if i mentioned this would be the first to our knowledge new money bonds. there have been refunding bonds that have been approved by success or agencies but were not aware of new money bonds. this is probably the strongest pledge agreement that we have that will make it easy for department of finances to approve it because of the requirements in the agreement with the developer with the issue of bonds and the tax increment is fully pledged for this purpose of infrastructure and issue bonds when it's available. so, in order to check in with department of finance, we did have a meeting
10:02 pm
a few weeks ago to make sure that they felt comfortable with the process we are going through. we knew they wouldn't prove it on the spot. they did agree that this process was appropriate and these kinds of documents putting forward through you and the oversight board and there was every indication that they would look positively at this request going through to them. so, i will introduce the team members that we have present in a moment. but with the assistance of our financial advisor, we conducted an rfp for underwriteers, the management dell arose an and company and at the recommended writers for this deal. they were on this pool already and authorized pool for these types of activities. the attached resolution would confirm that recommendation. we also under the executive directors
10:03 pm
authority we did an rrp. you approved initially the bond council with steve mall with his firm. at that point we also selected self disclosure council bill lofton and he's here today. so just before i introduce the team, the next steps will be that if you approve this resolution today it will go to the oversight board next week and if they approve it, it will go to department of finances. hopefully it will be sooner to offer their concurrence with this bond sale. and we are also waiting for the approval authority on the rocks to expend any proceeds then we can
10:04 pm
finalize it and get it to market. we are going total board of supervisors to increase the authority up to $70 million. with that i would like to point out the finance team members that we have in the audiences. bond council we have steve mall khan, joe watson, bob gamble and from the underwriteers jay chasmsky and della rosa. and that, i or the team would be happy to answer any questions. >> do you have [inaudible] laughed >> thank you so much. before we move on to commentary from commissioners, is there any public comment on this item? i
10:05 pm
have no sticker cards. do we have any public comment on this item 5a? okay. >> good afternoon, doctors jackson. i'm sorry i was late coming in. i'm not here today to be disagreement to anything that you are to do. i'm here to ask that you and the audience and those that are listening when i go to the store on the streets people stop me and thank me for coming and supporting their community. and i have never asked anything of anyone. but what i'm asking for all of you today to pray for me as i pray for you. pray for
10:06 pm
your neighbors, pray for the seniors, pray for our youth and pray for the city. today will be the last time that i will come before this committee. the only thing that i would like to say is that when the infrastructure committee was set up there was laws that was passed. one of the first laws was that those programs that was under the redevelopment agency back in the 50s and 60s be completed. i would like to say that i have came, i never missed a meeting of redevelopment. i went before redevelopment to talk about my church that was built in 1958 and when the role was built in
10:07 pm
oak dale, they built it flat. water, when it rained went through the building. redevelopment was supposed to put that church on the hill on the parking lot. that never occurred. we were here before the mission bay and anything else. i would like for you all please, please, don't forget that redevelopment started in 1968 in bayview hunters point. and the work that was supposed to have been carried out has not, has not. i don't feel as though i need to continue to come before this board any other board to plead for you all to do the right thing for
10:08 pm
bayview hunters point. thank you so very much and you have a blessed day and don't forget, pray for me and i will pray for you. i have been under the weather and bless all of you. >> thank you. any other comments today? thank you miss jackson for coming today. sorry you are under the weather. okay. questions on mission bay bonds? start. mr. eleven son, thank you very much for your presentation. i think it's pretty clear. there is a list of expenditures that the commission wants to see it for mission bay south. my question is more of a might be a little bit too detailed oriented. i
10:09 pm
noticed a role that i hadn't seen much before in my history of reading bond indentures was for a redevelopment consultant. bond indentures will have often different roles laid out for different types of parties. this one seemed to be specifically for the purposes of having a consultant who would write a report if there is a property that may affect the tax revenue available to repay the bonds. i wanted to ask you, can you expand on that role, am i correcten my reading of what that role is supposed to be and also is there an rfp process or did you think it was going to overlap with the financing team? >> well, i believe we can use our existing fiscal advisor as the redevelopment advisor
10:10 pm
consultant. you are right, if anything inside that can impair the ability to repay the bonds such as for example the sale of a large parcel of land from a taxable entity to a tax exempt entity that could materially reduce the amount of tax increment to repay the bonds, we would need to produce a report from the independent couplet -- consultant that would show that we have the covering, the capacity to have more than one and a quarter or more than that what was necessary to repay the bonds. so, i'm not actually sure how if our current arrangements with consultants if this would to happen in the future how this would work. >> it's my, i don't think we need to elaborate on it now especially if it's no the a need at the moment but i wonder, i wanted to ask as we
10:11 pm
go into this phase of every 6 months when we do this roth for the foreseeable future, we have a property plan and i wanted to make sure that roll that they are closely trying with that. >> we include on every rops for financing for this kind of thing and for other kinds of reports that are sometimes needed on bonds. this is not a very expensive process. it shouldn't cost that much when it needs to happen. >> okay. thank you very much. anyone else? >> yes, i want to know that increase of $11.4 million, why wasn't it done at the same time? >> at the time that we prepared the budget, we didn't realize how large the assessed
10:12 pm
evaluation would come in from the mission bay south when the role was publiced. at that time that was the amount. it was actually $35 million. >> at that time you didn't know how much was going to be increased? what was reason? >> well, it was based on the roles at that time and the interest rate at that time and we had not actually we hadn't engaged a consultant to do a more detailed calculation. it turned out to be low. but $70 million is actually now that we are coming back, this is a very optimistic number. so i would be surprised if we reached the full $70 million. if rates went down, it would be possible. it could be in the 50 or $60 million range. this will determine how much we can issue. >> okay.
10:13 pm
>> miss mondejar? >> this is a question of the resolution for the memo from the director. the bond issuance is really based on or pursuant to the mission bay south opa. i was wondering if we can get a copy of that and i couldn't find anything under opa. i'm curious since it's tied to opa. i'm asking because i was involved in another project where the opa was tied to the bonds and there was items there that i wanted to look at. if that can be provided to me. i know we have another opportunity to look at this. >> i certainly can and i believe there are links on the website. at anytime anyone can
10:14 pm
look at these documents. >> we can provide you the copies and point you to the relevant sections which is the financing plan and the separate tax allocation pledge agreement. >> okay. thanks. >> okay. commissioner? >> i just want to know what are the interest in all this? >> we had a range that was looked at and i believe, so the current, you never know until you actually go market to see how the market views your risks. but, there was, our fiscal consultant looked at a quarter percent rate and looked at what would happen if we get a rate that was a full percent lens lest than that. even that with over $60 million based on
10:15 pm
other assumptions would maximize the bond. >> i asked the same question a few months go that anybody can buy the bond, including us. >> yeah. >> yes, publically issued bonds and the rate is a blended rate. >> right. you might want to consult someone before a commissioner would buy the bonds. >> i think we've already discussed this. i this i the answer is yes. okay. does anyone else have any questions about these bonds? please don't leave it to me. i used to work in public finance. i'm not going ask. do you all understand the whole financing
10:16 pm
authority structure? okay. great. do i have a motion for they resolution 52-2013. >> i move. >> is there a second. >> please call the roll. >> [roll call vote taken] >> ellington, mondejar, the vote is 4 ayes. one absent. thank you very much. call the next item. item 5 b: update on the status of hunters point shipyard local contracting and construction work force hiring hunters point shipyard project area. you'll >> commissioners, this is a continuation of an item that was on the previous calendar and you asked it to the cal
