ORDINANCE NO. 31-04

AN ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR THE ISSUANCE OF $1,354,250 OF NOTES BY THE VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE, OHIO, IN ANTICIPATION OF THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PAYING PART OF THE COST OF ACQUIRING THE MANSION BUILDING PROPERTY LOCATED AT 537 JONES ROAD FOR VILLAGE PURPOSES, AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.

WHEREAS, this council has heretofore determined the necessity of acquiring the mansion building property located at 537 Jones Road for village purposes (the “Project”);

WHEREAS, the Director of Finance has heretofore certified that the maximum maturity of bonds issued for such purpose is thirty (30) years, and the maximum maturity of notes issued in anticipation of such bonds is twenty (20) years;

WHEREAS, this council expects that the debt service on such bonds will be paid from the general revenues of this village, and on such notes from such general revenues and the proceeds of such bonds or renewal notes (collectively, the “Revenues”); and

WHEREAS, notes heretofore for the Project (the “Prior Notes”) are about to mature and should be renewed in the amount of $1,354,250;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED by the Council of Granville, Ohio (hereinafter called the “Municipality”):

SECTION 1.  That it is necessary to issue bonds of the Municipality in the principal amount of $1,354,250, for the purpose of paying part of the cost of the Project.  Such bonds shall be dated approximately December 1, 2004, shall bear interest at the rate of approximately seven per cent (7%) per annum and shall mature in substantially equal annual installments of principal and interest over a period not exceeding thirty (30) years after their issuance.

SECTION 2.  That it is hereby determined that notes (hereinafter called the “Notes”) in the principal amount of $1,354,250 shall be issued in anticipation of the issuance of said bonds.

SECTION 3.  That the Notes shall (i) be dated the date of their initial issuance, (ii) bear interest at the rate of Two and Two Hundred Forty-Seven thousandths per cent (2.247%) per annum, payable at maturity, (iii) mature not more than one year from such date of initial issuance, and (iv) be of such number and denominations as may be requested by the purchaser.

SECTION 4.   That the Notes shall be in either bearer or fully registered form without coupons, as may be requested by the purchaser, shall bear the signatures of the Village Manager and Director of Finance, provided that one of such signatures may be a facsimile, and may bear the seal of the Municipality or a facsimile thereof.  Payment of the principal of and interest on each Note in fully registered form shall be made only to the person whose name appears on the Note registration records as the registered holder thereof.  The Notes shall be designated “Real Estate Acquisition Bond Anticipation Notes, Second (2004) Renewal”, and shall express upon their faces the purpose for which they are issued and that they are issued in pursuance of this ordinance.

The Municipality may deem and treat the registered holders of Notes in fully registered form as the absolute owners thereof for all purposes, and the Municipality shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary.

SECTION 5.  That the Notes shall be sold, at not less than par and accrued interest, to Fifth Third Bank, Columbus, Ohio, in accordance with its offer to purchase, which is hereby accepted.  The proceeds from the sale of the Notes, except any premium or accrued interest thereon, shall be paid into the proper fund and used for the purpose aforesaid and for no other purpose, and for which purpose such proceeds are hereby appropriated.  Any premium and accrued interest received from such sale shall be transferred to the bond retirement fund to be applied to the payment of principal and interest on the Notes in the manner provided by law.

SECTION 6.  That the Notes shall be the full general obligations of the Municipality, and the full faith, credit and revenue of the Municipality are hereby pledged for the prompt payment of the same.  The par value received from the sale of bonds anticipated by the Notes, and any excess fund resulting from the issuance of the Notes, shall to the extent necessary be used only for the retirement of the Notes at maturity, together with interest thereon and is hereby pledged for such purpose.

SECTION 7.  That during the period while the Notes run, there shall be levied upon all of the taxable property in the Municipality, within applicable limitations, in addition to all other taxes, a direct tax annually, not less than that which would have been levied if bonds had been issued without the prior issue of the Notes; said tax shall be and is hereby ordered computed, certified, levied and extended upon the tax duplicate and collected by the same officers in the same manner and at the same time that taxes for general purposes for each of said years are certified, extended and collected.  Said tax shall be placed before and in preference to all other items and for the full amount thereof.

The funds derived from said tax levy hereby required shall be placed in a separate and distinct fund and, together with interest collected on the same, shall be irrevocably pledged for the payment of the principal and interest of the Notes, or the bonds in anticipation of which they are issued, when and as the same fall due; provided, however, to the extent Revenues or other moneys are available and appropriated for debt service in a sufficient amount, said tax shall not be collected for such purpose.

SECTION 8.  That this council, for and on behalf of the Municipality, hereby covenants that it will restrict the use of the proceeds of the Notes hereby authorized in such manner and to such extent, if any, and take such other actions, as may be necessary, after taking into account reasonable expectations at the time the debt is incurred, so that they will not constitute obligations the interest on which is subject to federal income taxation or “arbitrage bonds” under Sections 103(b)(2) and 148 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) and

the regulations prescribed thereunder and will, to the extent possible, comply with all other applicable provisions of the Code and the regulations thereunder to retain the exclusion from federal income taxation for interest on the Notes, including any expenditure requirements, investment limitations or rebate requirements or use restrictions.  The Director of Finance or any other officer having responsibility with respect to the issuance of the Notes is authorized and directed to give an appropriate certificate on behalf of the Municipality, on the date of delivery of the Notes for inclusion in the transcript of proceedings, setting forth the facts, estimates and circumstances and reasonable expectations pertaining to the use of the proceeds thereof and the provisions of the Code and the regulations thereunder.

SECTION 9.  That the Notes are hereby designated as “qualified taxexempt obligations” to the extent permitted by Section 265(b) of the Code.  This council finds and determines that the reasonably anticipated amount of taxexempt obligations (whether or not designated as qualified) issued and to be issued by the Municipality during this calendar year including the Notes does not, and this council hereby covenants that, during such year, the amount of taxexempt obligations issued by the Municipality and designated as “qualified taxexempt obligations” for such purpose will not, exceed $10,000,000.  The Director of Finance and other appropriate officers, and any of them, are authorized to take such actions and give such certifications on behalf of the Municipality with respect to the reasonably anticipated amount of taxexempt obligations to be issued by the Municipality during this calendar year and with respect to such other matters as appropriate under the Code.

SECTION 10.  That for purposes of this ordinance, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

“Book entry form” or “book entry system” means a form or system under which (i) the beneficial right to payment of principal of and interest on the Notes may be transferred only through a book entry, and (ii) physical Note certificates in fully registered form are issued only to the Depository or its nominee as registered owner, with the Notes “immobilized” to the custody of the Depository, and the book entry maintained by others than the Municipality is the record that identifies the owners of beneficial interests in those Notes and that principal and interest.

“Depository” means any securities depository that is a clearing agency under federal law operating and maintaining, together with its Participants or otherwise, a book entry system to record ownership of beneficial interests in Notes or principal and interest, and to effect transfers of Notes, in book entry form, and includes and means initially The Depository Trust Company (a limited purpose trust company), New York, New York.

“Participant” means any participant contracting with a Depository under a book entry system and includes security brokers and dealers, banks and trust companies, and clearing corporations.

At the request of the purchaser, all or any portion of the Notes may be initially issued to a Depository for use in a book entry system, and the provisions of this Section shall apply to such Notes, notwithstanding any other provision of this ordinance.  If and as long as a book entry system is utilized with respect to any of such Notes: (i) there shall be a single Note of each maturity; (ii) those Notes shall be registered in the name of the Depository or its nominee, as registered owner, and immobilized in the custody of the Depository; (iii) the beneficial owners of Notes in book entry form shall have no right to receive Notes in the form of physical securities or certificates; (iv) ownership of beneficial interests in any Notes in book entry form shall be shown by book entry on the system maintained and operated by the Depository and its Participants, and transfers of the ownership of beneficial interests shall be made only by book entry by the Depository and its Participants; and (v) the Notes as such shall not be transferable or exchangeable, except for transfer to another Depository or to another nominee of a Depository, without further action by the Municipality.  Debt service charges on Notes in book entry form registered in the name of a Depository or its nominee shall be payable in the manner provided in the Municipality’s agreement with the Depository to the Depository or its authorized representative (i) in the case of interest, on each interest payment date, and (ii) in all other cases, upon presentation and surrender of Notes as provided in this ordinance.

The Paying Agent and Registrar may, with the approval of the Municipality, enter into an agreement with the beneficial owner or registered owner of any Note in the custody of a Depository providing for making all payments to that owner of principal and interest on that Note or any portion thereof (other than any payment of the entire unpaid principal amount thereof) at a place and in a manner (including wire transfer of federal funds) other than as provided in this ordinance, without prior presentation or surrender of the Note, upon any conditions which shall be satisfactory to the Paying Agent and Registrar and to the Municipality.  That payment in any event shall be made to the person who is the registered owner of that Note on the date that principal is due, or, with respect to the payment of interest, as of the applicable date agreed upon as the case may be.  The Paying Agent and Registrar shall furnish a copy of each of those agreements, certified to be correct by the Paying Agent and Registrar, to any other paying agents for the Notes and to the Municipality.  Any payment of principal or interest pursuant to such an agreement shall constitute payment thereof pursuant to, and for all purposes of, this ordinance.

The Director of Finance is authorized and directed without further action of this council to execute, acknowledge and deliver, in the name of and on behalf of the Municipality, a blanket letter agreement between the Municipality and The Depository Trust Company, as Depository, to be delivered in connection with the issuance of the Notes to the Depository for use in a book entry system, and to take all other actions the Director of Finance deems appropriate in issuing the Notes under a book entry system.

If any Depository determines not to continue to act as Depository for the Notes for use in a book entry system, the Municipality and the Paying Agent and Registrar may attempt to establish a securities depository/book entry relationship with another qualified Depository under this ordinance.  If the Municipality and the Paying Agent and Registrar do not or are unable to do so, the Municipality and the Paying Agent and Registrar, after the Paying Agent and Registrar has made provision for notification of the beneficial owners by the then Depository, shall permit withdrawal of the Notes from the Depository and authenticate and deliver Note certificates in fully registered form to the assigns of the Depository or its nominee, all at the cost and expense (including costs of printing definitive Notes), if the event is not the result of action or inaction by the Municipality or the Paying Agent and Registrar, of those persons requesting such issuance.

SECTION 11.  That the Director of Finance is hereby directed to forward a certified copy of this ordinance to the county auditor.

SECTION 12.  That it is found and determined that all formal actions of this council concerning and relating to the passage of this ordinance were passed in an open meeting of this council, and that all deliberations of this council and of any of its committees that resulted in such formal action, were in meetings open to the public, in compliance with the law, including Section 121.22 of the Ohio Revised Code.

SECTION 13.  That this ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety, morals and welfare of the inhabitants of the Municipality for the reason that the immediate issuance and sale of the Notes is necessary to retire the Prior Notes in a timely manner and to provide for the orderly financing of the Project, and, therefore, provided this ordinance receives the affirmative vote of at least five members elected or appointed to this council, it shall be in full force and effect immediately upon its passage.

SECTION 7.  That during the year or years while the Notes run there shall be levied upon all of the taxable property in the Municipality in addition to all other taxes, a direct tax annually not less than that which would have been levied if bonds had been issued without the prior issue of the Notes; provided, however, that in each year to the extent the Revenues and other moneys are available for the payment of the Notes and bonds and are appropriated for such purpose, the amount of such tax shall be reduced by the amount of such Revenues and other moneys so available and appropriated.  Said tax shall be and is hereby ordered computed, certified, levied and extended upon the tax duplicate and collected by the same officers in the same manner and at the same time that taxes for general purposes for each of said years are certified, extended and collected.  Said tax shall be placed before and in preference to all other items and for the full amount thereof.  The funds derived from said tax levy hereby required, or from the other described sources, shall be placed in a separate and distinct fund, which together with all interest collected on the same, shall be pledged irrevocably for the payment of the principal and interest of the Notes or the bonds in anticipation of which they are issued when and as the same fall due.

SECTION 9.  That the Notes are hereby designated as “qualified tax-exempt obligations” to the extent permitted by Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).  This Council finds and determines that the reasonable anticipated amount of qualified tax-exempt obligations (other than private activity bonds) which will be issued by the Municipality during this calendar year does not and this Council hereby covenants that, during such year, the amount of tax-exempt obligations issued by the Municipality and designated as “qualified tax-exempt obligations” for such purpose will not exceed $10,000,000.  The Director of Finance and other appropriate officers, and any of them, are authorized to take such actions and give such certifications on behalf of the Municipality with respect to the reasonably anticipated amount of tax-exempt obligations to be issued by the Municipality during this calendar year and with respect to such other matters as appropriate under Section 265(b)(3).

SECTION 13. That this ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety, morals and welfare of the inhabitants of the Municipality for the reason that the immediate issuance and sale of the Notes is necessary to provide for the orderly financing of the improvements to which the Notes relate and the orderly refunding of the Prior Bonds by renewing notes previously issued for the purpose in a timely manner, and, therefore, provided this ordinance receives the affirmative vote of at least five members elected or appointed to this council, it shall be in full force and effect immediately upon its passage.
