Everett Public Schools Bond sale saves taxpayers money

“Refinancing capital bonds at lower interest rates is similar in concept to the action many homeowners have taken recently to refinance homes at lower interest rates. Reduced interest rates mean savings for our public,” noted Board of Directors Vice President Carol Andrews.

School board actions since 2000 have saved taxpayers more than $24 million. Careful management and strategic timing of bond sales has reduced public cost of quality schools.

On October 15, 2013, Everett Public Schools refinanced a portion of its voter-approved bonds and secured more than $1.7 million in savings for local taxpayers. “Refinancing capital bonds at lower interest rates is similar in concept to the action many homeowners have taken recently to refinance homes at lower interest rates.

Looking Ahead

The City of Mill Creek celebrated its 30th birthday this year and while much has changed over those thirty years, the city’s character has not.

Next week marks my eleventh month as Mill Creek’s City Manager.  As I reflect on those eleven months, I am struck by how much I have learned about the community and the things that are most important to its residents, businesses and visitors.  The past month or so has made me realize just how passionate people are about this community.  Mill Creek is unique and its residents are justly proud of their community.
