WHEREAS, certain engineering and planning activities (the “Preliminary Work”) need to be undertaken in order to begin the statutory procedures for establishing the Urban Renewal Area; and
WHEREAS, in order to make the cost of the Preliminary Work eligible to be paid from future incremental property tax revenues, it is necessary to create an internal debt;
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of Woodbury County, Iowa, as follows:
Section 1. There is hereby established the Liberty Industrial Park Urban Renewal Area Tax Increment Revenue Fund (the “Tax Increment Fund”), into which all incremental property tax revenues received from the Urban Renewal Area shall be deposited.
Section 2. It is hereby directed that $25,000 be advanced to the Tax Increment Fund from the Local Option Sales Tax Fund, in order to pay the costs of the Preliminary Work. This advance shall be treated as a loan (the “Loan”) to the Tax Increment Fund and shall be repaid to the Local Option Sales Tax Fund out of incremental tax revenues received with respect to the Urban Renewal Area.
Payments on the Loan are subject to annual appropriation by the Board of Supervisors and to the Board’s determination that there are incremental tax revenues available for such purpose which have been allocated to or accrued in the Tax Increment Fund.
Once appropriated, payments shall be made on the Loan on June 1 of each year to the extent there are incremental tax revenues available for such purpose which have been allocated to or accrued in the Tax Increment Fund. The right is hereby reserved to issue additional obligations, or to enter into additional loans, payable from the Tax Increment Fund, which may
either rank on a parity with the Loan or may have a priority over the Loan with respect to the revenues in the Tax Increment Fund.
Section 3. The Tax Increment Fund is hereby pledged to the repayment of the Loan, and a copy of this Resolution shall be filed in the office of the County Auditor to evidence this pledge.
