The project as defined under IC 6-1.1-20 is considered a non-controlled project and will not be subject to the petition or remonstrance process as defined under the statute.  The district intends to issue lease revenue bonds to finance all of the work to be completed, and the bonds are projected to have a final maturity in 2033.  The debt service on the new bonds is projected to replace some of the district’s current debt service that is scheduled to mature.  As such, the additional debt service is not projected to increase the district’s current debt service levy but will simply replace the maturing debt.  The new debt service will also be structured to allow the district to examine future capital needs as other existing debt matures.
