If imposition of the tax is approved by the voters, such vote shall also constitute approval of the issuance of general obligation debt of Dade County in the principal amount not to exceed $4,900,000 for the above described capital outlay projects of the City and the County.

2. All qualified voters desiring to vote in favor of imposing the tax shall vote "Yes" and all qualified voters opposed to levying the tax shall vote "No." If more than one-half of the votes cast are in favor of imposing the tax then the tax shall be imposed beginning July 1, 2015, or the earliest date authorized by law.

3. The estimated cost of the above described capital outlay projects to be funded with the special sales and use tax proceeds, including interest and capitalized interest and cost of issuance on the general obligation debt to be incurred, shall be $13,600,000. Proceeds from the special sales and use tax and the general obligation debt may be combined with and any other available funds to pay the costs of the above described capital outlay projects. Plans and specifications for these projects have not been completed and bids have not been received. Depending upon acquisition and construction costs and available funds, the County and the other governmental bodies receiving proceeds from the special sales and use tax and general obligation debt may establish or reestablish priorities and choose which capital outlay projects to undertake or not undertake, or to delay until additional funding is available, to the extent that proceeds of the special sales and use tax and the general obligation debt together with other available funds actually received by the County or such governmental body are insufficient to complete any of the capital outlay projects.

4. If such special sales and use tax is to be imposed, Dade County, acting by and through the Board of Commissioners of Dade County, may issue general obligation debt, in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $4,900,000. The proceeds from such general obligation debt, if issued, shall be used to fund all of the capital outlay projects of the City of Trenton and a portion of the capital outlay projects of the County, described in the foregoing question. The maximum rate or rates of interest on such debt shall not exceed six percent (6.00%) per annum. The maximum amount of principal to be paid in each year during the life of the debt shall be as follows: 

Year         Principal Amount Maturing

Year 1      $790,000

Year 2        800,000

Year 3        810,000

Year 4        815,000

Year 5        835,000

Year 6        850,000

The Board of Commissioners may issue aggregate general obligation debt which is less than $4,900,000 and reduce the principal amounts maturing which are shown above.

5. In accordance with the Intergovernmental Agreement $1,900,000 in principal amount of the general obligation debt, less costs of issuance and capitalized interest, shall be allocated to fund all of the projects of the City and up to $3,000,000 in principal amount of the general obligation debt, less costs of issuance and capitalized interest, shall be allocated to fund a portion of the County Projects.  Such general obligation debt shall be payable first from the proceeds of the Special Sales Tax; however, such general obligation debt which is not satisfied from the proceeds of the Special Sales Tax may be satisfied from the general funds of the County or from ad valorem tax which may be levied for such purpose.

6. Projects for the City shall be funded in order and priority as determined by the City Commission. Projects for the County, the Dade County Industrial Development Authority and the Dade County Water and Sewer Authority shall be considered as "County Projects" and will be funded in order and priority as determined by the Board of Commissioners. It is anticipated that approximately $1,000,000 in Special Sales Tax proceeds will be allocated by the County to the projects of the Dade County Water and Sewer Authority and $1,500,000 will be allocated by the County to projects of the Dade County Industrial Development Authority, which include the payment of general obligations of the County to pay from taxes or other funds available to the County to the extent necessary amounts sufficient for payment of debt service on outstanding revenue bonds of the Dade County Water and Sewer Authority.  The Intergovernmental Agreement is a public record on file in the office of the Clerk of the Board of Commissioners.

7. Reference is hereby made to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated § 36-82-1(d), which provides in part that any brochures, listings, or other advertisements issued by the Board of Commissioners or by any other person, firm, corporation, or association with the knowledge and consent of the Board of Commissioners shall be deemed to be a statement of intention of the Board of Commissioners concerning the use of bond funds.
