City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


City Manager’s Letter It is my privilege to present you with the balanced budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2014 which totals $192,409,564. The annual budget is the policy document that communicates the financial policies of the City for the fiscal year. The budget is prepared each year with the support and policy input of our elected officials and hard work from our departments to ensure that we are preparing the leanest budget possible while still providing high quality services through excellent service delivery. The The Fiscal Year 2014 balanced recovering economy continues to present a few challenges during the development budget maintains the level of of the Fiscal Year 2014 budget, however, as a result of years of fiscal prudence and service that Rock Hill citizens efficient management of operations, the City of Rock Hill was well positioned to have grown to appreciate and respond to those challenges. Factors Affecting This Year’s Budget In preparing the annual budget, there are a few main factors that have greatly impacted the decision making process. The City’s health insurance costs have been steadily increasing over the past few years. As a self-insured organization, the City is responsible for paying for any gaps in funding between claims and premiums collected. Last year, health insurance claims exceed premiums by over $1.5 million dollars. In order to bridge this shortfall this budget year, the City budgeted an additional $750,000 contribution to health insurance. Additionally, plan changes have been implemented to reduce costs including a hard deductible, generic medication changes, and surcharges for tobacco users to make up the other $750,000 shortfall.

expect while continuing the City’s tradition of fiscal prudence and efficient operations. The approved budget reflects the City’s priorities as outlined in the Strategic Plan. This budget document provides useful information about the City’s financial and performance plans, goals, and policies.

Another factor influencing the 2014 fiscal year budget is an increasing demand for public safety. As our population continues to grow, there is a greater need for more Police and Fire personnel. This fiscal year, the City fully funded six new Police Officers for Street Crimes and Community Service, as well as a new Police Officer for courtroom security. In making public safety a key priority for this year, the budget also includes a new Fire Inspector position to assist in making sure businesses and restaurants throughout our City are meeting code requirements. The City has also continued to focus on business friendly initiatives this fiscal year. City Management and elected officials continue to meet with the small business leadership group, developers, and community members to determine what ways the City can best assist businesses. The City continues to offer a 10% discount on business license fees to those who pay on time. Additionally, a non-conformity ordinance was extended through this budget year that allows new businesses to occupy non-conforming sites and for existing businesses to expand on non-conforming sites. The City is also carrying on the local preference policy that gives an advantage to our local contractors in matching the lowest bid on City projects. Finally, the city is keeping the business friendly initiative of reimbursing contractors who upsize water and sewer lines. Strategic Planning Last year, Rock Hill’s City Council and staff developed a set of strategic initiatives and a strategic plan. Our strategic plan provides a blueprint for the City’s future by outlining ambitions, setting priorities, and providing performance targets to ensure adequate progress toward making the vision a reality. This Strategic Plan will continue to guide the City through June 30, 2015. As Rock Hill is a city committed to quality, this year’s budget continues to support providing quality services, developing quality places, and fostering a quality community. Quality Services: This focus area includes some of the most fundamental responsibilities we have as being the local provider for services such as fire, police, water, sewer, electricity, public works, economic development, customer service, and parks, recreation, and tourism. Quality Places: This focus area involves ensuring that the City offers quality development and places for businesses and community life to flourish. This includes having a vibrant downtown and managing transformative development projects within our community, such as Riverwalk and Textile Corridor projects. Quality Community: This focus area addresses several quality of life initiatives such as supporting neighborhoods within our City, fostering a diverse and inclusive community, building public trust, and encouraging public engagement. Additional information on the Strategic Plan can be found in the Performance Budget section of this document.

City Manager’s Letter Funding by Strategic Initiative Our approved budget distributes Fiscal Year 2014 financial resources by departments and across strategic initiatives in the following manner: Services Places Community Total General Government $8,739,505 $207,633 $8,947,138 Office of Management & Budget $1,678,891 $1,678,891 Human Resources $834,644 $834,644 Planning & Develop. $2,913,836 $2,913,836 Housing & Neighborhood Services $1,518,953 $1,518,953 Police $13,810,861 $13,810,861 Fire $8,075,988 $8,075,988 Public Works $8,001,466 $8,001,466 Finance $3,118,966 $3,118,966 Parks, Recreation & Tourism $3,201,015 $3,544,471 $6,745,486 Housing Authority $1,518,953 $1,518,953 Economic & Urban Dev. $1,536,229 $407,928 $1,944,157 Stormwater $1,923,402 $1,923,402 Utilities $108,091,607 $108,091,607 Debt Service $16,431,970 $1,796,215 $18,228,185 Non-Departmental $4,988,396 $68,635 $5,057,031 Total $180,432,940 $5,817,249 $6,159,375 $192,409,564 A Few Budget Highlights: New Personnel There are 12 new positions included in the Fiscal Year 2014 budget. Of the 12 new positions, 8 are for public safety. These public safety personnel include: 3 Police Officers added to the Street Crimes Unit, 3 Police Officers as Community Service Officers, 1 Police Officer for additional Courtroom Security, and 1 Fire Inspector. These new positions will uphold our strategic focus areas of providing quality services, places, and community. With the opening of the Presbyterian Sports Medicine BMX Supercross Track scheduled for Spring 2014, two new positions have been added to the Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department: a Recreation Coordinator, who is responsible for the daily operations of the track, and a Crew Worker II, who is responsible for maintaining the Rock Hill Outdoor Center. The last two positions are two part-time Senior Projects Interns in the Grants Divisions. These positions will help to support our increasingly successful grants program. Fiscal Prudence The City has spent the past few years implementing policies that uphold financially prudent practices. A commitment has been made to maintain a healthy fund balance, particularly by increasing the unassigned portion of the fund balance. Each adopted budget includes resources specifically designated for this purpose. Additionally, City Management has enforced a utility transfer policy that reflects what a privately owned utility would be paying in taxes and fees. These types of policies have not only led to a higher “quality” in our City, but also a higher bond rating. Standard & Poor’s recently upgraded the City’s general obligation bonds one notch to ‘AA-’ from ‘A+’ which has led to a decrease in interest rates. Budget Summary The Fiscal Year 2014 approved budget totals $192,409,564, a 5.01% increase over last fiscal year. The proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget totals $200,757,627, a 4.34% increase over Fiscal Year 2014. Successful business recruitment efforts in our area have resulted in increased business license fees. In Fiscal Year 2013 there was a 14% increase in the business license fees collected when compared to Fiscal Year 2012. There has also been modest growth in real and personal property taxes. However, the electric, water, and wastewater revenues were not as strong as projected due to mild weather patterns. Given some improvements in the economy, for the second time in four years the approved Fiscal Year 2014 budget includes a modified pay-for-performance base wage increase for employee. Financial prudence requires us to carefully evaluate our ability to sustain employee pay-for-performance increases for Fiscal Year 2015. Additionally, fiscal years 2014 and 2015 budgets reflect a continued restoration of the City’s established equipment and vehicle replacement schedule.

Utility Enterprise Fund The Utility Enterprise Fund consists of the electric, water, wastewater, stormwater, and water/wastewater impact fee funds. Fiscal Year 2013 expenditures for the Utility Enterprise Fund total $138,933,683 a 11% increase over last year’s approved budget. The proposed 2015 budget is $146,393,956 which represents a 5.4% increase over Fiscal Year 2014. Maintaining aging infrastructure, expanding infrastructure into growing areas, and using technology to enhance service delivery are priorities for our Utility Fund. The Fiscal Year 2014 approved budget includes a 6% electric rate increase to cover a 6.7% wholesale electric rate increase. This increase is effective July 1, 2013 and represents a $6.59 increase in the average residential customer’s monthly utility bill. Over the past twenty years, the City’s electric system has absorbed over $166 million worth of rate increases from PMPA. Although we seek to minimize rate increases of any kind to our citizens, this year’s rate increase was a necessity to keep our system in good standing. Fortunately, there are no other rate increases included in this budget.

Our accountability and transparency efforts won the Government Finance Officers Association’s 2011 Award for Excellence in Government.

The proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget includes a 5% electric rate increase to cover a projected 6.7% wholesale power rate increase.

Conclusion Despite the challenges presented with balancing the Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 budgets, Rock Hill’s tradition of fiscal prudence has allowed us to continue with progress on accomplishing the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan and enhancing the overall quality of service delivery to our community.

Rock Hill at a Glance Utility System Profile The combined utility system, which provides electrical, water, and sewer services within the City and its surrounding areas, is municipally owned and operated. Rates are set by City Council. The system presently serves approximately 95,000 people, including residential and commercial customers of the City and its suburbs. The Rock Hill City Council is the rate setting body for all utilities– no State or other authority regulates the City’s utility rates.

Electric System

Water System

The City has operated the electric system since 1911. The electric system consists of six substations which serve 21 distribution feeder circuits of 25,000 volts and four substations which serve 17 distribution feeder circuits at 4,160 volts. The City purchases electric power from Piedmont Municipal Power Agency (PMPA) and Southeastern Power Administration at wholesale rates and retails to local consumers through the City-owned distribution lines. A mutual assistance agreement with 20 other members provides for mutual assistance in extreme emergencies.

The City withdraws water from Lake Wylie, a Duke Energy Company lake constructed in 1915. The distribution system serves an area of approximately 69.43 square miles, including 4.32 square miles outside the City limits. Within the water system, 4.5 million gallons of elevated storage and 3.0 million gallons of ground storage is provided. The water system serves both residential and industrial customers.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Budget Process Each year, the City of Rock Hill’s budget is developed in conjunction with the Mayor and City Council, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and all other city departments, with opportunities for citizen feedback. Budget Process Developing the Budget Strategic planning sessions precede the official budget process. During these sessions, Council and staff discuss goals and priorities. Every three years these goals and priorities are evaluated and modified extensively with only minor adjustments occurring in the other years. Information from these sessions are then carried over to the budgeting process. The budget process begins in January with a special, comprehensive work session in which OMB meets with all departments to discuss current and future trends, needs, and goals of the City. During this meeting, the City’s budget calendar is reviewed. Departments are then responsible for preparing requests for programs, projects, and initiatives they would like to have considered for the upcoming budget year. The Strategic Plan serves as a guide by which each department prepares its expenditure requests. During this time, OMB prepares revenue estimates for both the current and upcoming two fiscal years. Each department meets individually with OMB to review program budgets and expenditure requests. During these meetings, the goals of each department are reviewed and expenditure requests are evaluated to determine their alignment with the strategic goals and the fiscal resources necessary to fund the requests.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015

Following these meetings, the Office of Management and Budget meets to prepare a draft budget for submission to City Council being sure that the priorities and goals discussed in the strategic planning sessions are appropriately reflected in the recommended budget. This draft budget is submitted to the Mayor and Council at formal budget workshops held in April and May.

Adopting the Budget The public has an opportunity to comment on the budget during the first and second reading of the ordinance to adopt the budget. Two public hearings and two readings are required for formal adoption of the budget. State law requires the City Council to adopt a balanced budget, in which current revenues equal current expenditures, prior to June 30 of each year. Amendments to the budget are allowable under South Carolina law and are made throughout the year as necessary. The budget calendar is provided on the following page. Two-Year Budgeting The City of Rock Hill uses a two-year budgeting process with the governing body approving the year one budget and being made aware of the projected budget for year two. The two-year budgeting process has several benefits; one of the most obvious benefits is demonstrating how financial decisions in one year affects the future.

19


Budgetary Fund Structure The annual budget is comprised of many different types of funds. In creating the annual budget, the City appropriates funds for the General Fund, various Enterprise Funds, and a few Impact Fee Funds. Although there are other funds, like debt service or special revenue, they have specific revenues/expenditures that limit their uses. Therefore, the chart below only includes funds for which the City allocated its funds.

NON-ENTERPRISE FUNDS  The General Fund accounts for all financial resources that are not accounted for in other funds. This includes the com  

mon City functions such as Police, Fire, Finance, Public Works, etc. The Tax Increment Surplus Fund accounts for special districts throughout the City.

Financial Policies & Strategies Rock Hill budget and financial polices and strategies are governed by South Carolina state law, the City Charter, and generally accepted accounting principles. These laws, strategies, principles, and policies describe ways to amend the budget after adoption, provide for budget controls and budget reporting, and identify appropriate methods for budgeting, accounting, and reporting.

Budget Controls & Reporting All excess revenue collected by the City of Rock Hill that exceeds the projected budget revenue figure from a specific revenue category for each fiscal reporting period must be reported to City Council on a monthly basis. The expenditure of any and all excess revenue will be at Council’s discretion and cannot be utilized within the City budget without Council’s approval. Likewise, all expenditures that exceed the projected budget expense figures in excess of $5,000 on a departmental level must be reported to Council in writing by the next scheduled Council meeting. Expenditures that would cause an increase above the $5,000 cap on a departmental level cannot be made without prior approval of Council. Cost savings that may occur within a specific department can be utilized within that particular department; however, this cost savings cannot be transferred to another department without prior approval of Council. Enterprise Fund Transfers & Year Ending Condition In addition to building cash reserves, the City has also successfully met its goal of reducing the amount of transfers from the enterprise fund to the general fund. By aggressively containing costs in General Fund de-

utilities transfer adheres to the policy and covers 12.3% (6,584,372) of general fund expenditures. The Fiscal Year 2015 budgeted transfer is $6,753,211 which will cover 12.3% of General Fund Expenditures. Budgetary & Accounting Systems The accounting policies of the City of Rock Hill conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) as applicable to governmental units. The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is the accepted body for establishing governmental accounting and financial reporting principles. The following is a summary of the more significant policies applicable to revenues and expenditures. Fund Accounting The accounts of the City are organized on the basis of funds and account groups, each of which is considered a separate accounting entity. Fund accounting is designed to demonstrate legal compliance and to aid financial management by segregating transactions related to certain government functions or activities. The operations of each fund are accounted for with a separate set of self-balancing accounts that com-

22


Financial Policies & Strategies The operations of each fund are accounted for with a separate set of self-balancing accounts that comprise its assets, liabilities, fund equity, revenues and expenditures or expenses, as appropriate. Funds Governmental Funds are used to account for all or most of a government's general activities. Examples of these activities include public safety, parks, and sanitation services. These revenues come from property taxes, user fees, licenses, and permits. Within the category of Governmental Funds, Rock Hill maintains General, Special Revenue, and Capital Projects Funds. General Fund- The General Fund is the City's general operating fund and is used to account for all financial transactions except those required to be accounted for in another fund. Principal sources of revenue are property taxes, licenses and permits, intergovernmental revenues, and sanitation service charges. The expenditures in the General Fund are administration, budget, finance, economic development, fleet maintenance, public safety, general government, public works, housing authority, and parks and recreation. Special Revenue Fund- The Special Revenue Fund is used to account for the proceeds from specific revenue sources (other than funding for major capital projects) that are legally restricted to expenditures for specified purposes. The City does not adopt a budget for the Special Revenue Fund because it primarily serves as a pass-through for federal grants. Capital Projects Fund- The Capital Projects Fund accounts for financial resources, including bond proceeds and intergovernmental grants, used for the acquisition, construction, or improvement of major general government facilities. The City does not adopt a formal budget for the Capital Projects Fund, although particular projects are detailed within this budget in the "Bond Schedule" section. Enterprise Funds are used to account for the businesstype activities of a government. These are activities which are financed and operated in a manner where the intent of the governing body is that the costs (expenses, including depreciation) of providing goods and services to the general public on a continuing basis be financed or recovered primarily through user charges. The funds include the Electric, Water, Wastewater, Stormwater, and Impact Fee funds.

23

Basis of Accounting The accounting and financial reporting applied to a fund are determined by its measurement focus. All governmental funds are accounted for using a current financial resources measurement focus. Only current assets and current liabilities generally are included on the balance sheet. Governmental fund revenues and expenditures are recognized on the modified accrual basis. Revenues are deemed susceptible to accrual and are recognized in the period when they become measurable and available. Expenditures are recognized when the fund liability is incurred, except principal and interest on general long-term debt which is recognized when due or when funds have been made available for payment. The proprietary fund is accounted for on a flow of economic resources measurement focus. With this measurement focus, all assets and liabilities associated with the operation of these funds are included on the balance sheet. Unlike modified accrual basis, this basis includes depreciation, amortization, capital assets donated by private parties, and capital asset purchases are treated as expenses. Fund equity is segregated into contributed capital and retained earnings components. Proprietary fundtype operating statements present increases (revenues) and decreases (expenses) in net total assets. Basis of Budgeting In accordance with the General Statutes of the State of South Carolina, the City Council is required by state statute to adopt an annual balanced budget ordinance for the Combined General and Enterprise Operating Funds prior to July 1. Project ordinances are adopted for the Special Revenue and Capital projects funds when necessary. All budgets are prepared using the modified accrual basis of accounting. City Council has the authority to amend the budget ordinance. Appropriations lapse at the end of the budget year. Appropriations are authorized in the annual budget ordinance generally at the department level. The legal level of budgetary control is at the fund level; however, in practice, the City maintains control at the department level. Administrative control is further maintained through more detailed lineitem budgets. The City adopts this budget for the General Fund (Fund 500) and the Enterprise Fund (Fund 700).

Additional History The local tax rate remained steady at 100 mills until 1998 when it was increased to 104 mills to meet the cost of Public Safety initiatives. An additional two mill tax inFiscal Year *Year of Reassessment crease was included in the Fiscal Year 2001 budget. Reas^ Recommended sessment was completed by York County and the rollback millage, with a two mill rate increase, brought the City’s total millage for Fiscal Year 2002 down to 98 mills. A four mill tax increase was included in the Fiscal Year 2005 budget to cover the cost of adding Firefighters to the new fire station. In Fiscal Year 2007, a three mill tax increase funded the addition of a Street Crimes Unit in the Police Department and construction of a new fire station. In Fiscal Year 2012, the tax rate was decreased to 93.5 mills to provide a revenue neutral budget as a result of reassessment.

Charges for Services

Operating Transfers

Charges for Services, such as sanitation fees, cemetery fees, and recreation fees, significantly support many city government operations.

Rock Hill SC Business License Revenue Revenue (in millions)

The Business License Fee, which is imposed on any business, occupation, or profession, in whole or in part, within the City limits, is the major source of revenue within this category and accounts for 14% of the General Fund revenues in Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015. The fee consists of a base rate plus a percentage of gross income and varies according to the business classification. License and permit projections are based primarily on historical trend analysis. Beginning in Fiscal Year 2012, the City implemented a 10% reduction of business license fees for businesses who paid their fees before the due date. This practice is projected to continue through Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 due to its promotion of job growth.

Revenue (in millions)

Electric Fund Electric sales represent the single largest source of revenue for the City of Rock Hill. The City monitors the Electric revenues closely on a week to week basis in order to project with great accuracy. Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015 estimates are based on historical trends of customer growth that is applied to rate schedules. Electric revenue account for approximately 72% of all Enterprise Fund revenues. A 6% rate increase is included in the approved budget to cover a PMPA rate increase. A 5% electric rate increase is projected for Fiscal Year 2015 to cover an anticipated PMPA wholesale power rate increase.

Stormwater Fund Stormwater fees are imposed on residential and nonresidential customers inside the City limits. Currently, residential properties with gross land area less than 10,000 square feet (including apartments) are charged $2.38 per month and residential properties with gross land area more than 10,000 square feet are charged $2.88 per month. Fees for nonresidential property are based on size of property and impervious surface area and vary among properties.

Impact Fees In Fiscal Year 2004 the City began implementing fire, water and wastewater impact fees to ensure that growth pays for related infrastructure improvements. The water and wastewater impact fees are being used to offset a $50 million utility revenue bond. This bond issue has funded over $18.7 million in water improvements, mainly at the water treatment plant, and over $17.9 million in wastewater projects. Although revenues declined during the economic downturn, impact fees have almost fully recovered.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Expenditure Summary Expenditure Observations General Fund

Enterprise Funds

General Fund departments continue to control costs to reduce the dependency on the Enterprise Fund transfer. The transfer for Fiscal Year 2014 covers approximately 12% of General Fund expenses, down from as much as 42% in 1990.

Despite the current challenges, the outlook for our region is still favorable and the City continues to plan for the future. The enterprise fund outlook includes several capital projects in the Electric, Water, and Wastewater Funds over the next five years. Many of these projects will be funded from rate increases in the corresponding funds. The others will be funded with revenue bonds. The Capital Improvement Plan section provides more information on these projects.

General Fund expenditures for Fiscal Year 2014 are budgeted at $53,475,881 a 3.55% increase when compared to Fiscal Year 2013. Personnel expenditures (salaries and salary additives) make up 71% of the total general fund expenditures ($38 million). The Fiscal Year 2014 budget reflects a modified payfor-performance program with a 1.5% performance compensation base wage increase. Personnel expenses have also increased as a result of increasing health costs. The approved Fiscal Year 2014 budget reflects a 8.44% increase in capital spending when compared to Fiscal Year 2013. This is partially due to the continued efforts to restore the City’s equipment and vehicle replacement plan following years of modified implementation. Also, the City is continuing to invest in infrastructure and economic development projects.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015

Enterprise Fund expenditures are budgeted at $124,506,745, a 4.97% increase compared to Fiscal Year 2013. Similar to the General Fund, personnel expenditures have greatly increased with healthcare costs and the modified employee payfor-performance program. The Fiscal Year 2014 approved budget includes a 6% electric rate increase to cover a 6.7% PMPA wholesale rate increase.

Performance Budget Overview Introduction to Performance Budgets This section of the budget document details how the City of Rock Hill will allocate financial and personnel resources. The City’s Strategic Plan assists with the allocation of resources by reminding City leaders and staff of the established priorities, consequently improving the City’s ability to accomplish its goals. There are four sub-sections included in the Performance Budget section: FY2013 Year-End Performance Results Summary—provides a high level summary of the City’s progress at accomplishing performance goals that were due within Fiscal Year 2013. The full report is available at cityofrockhill.com/transparency. Accountability & Transparency Efforts– provides information on the various efforts the City has undertaken to champion open and accessible government. Our efforts earned the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) 2011 Award for Excellence in Government and the Alliance for Innovation’s 2010 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award. Performance Budgets— provides high level summaries of performance measurement, expenditure, and personnel information for departments and divisions. FY2013—FY2015 Strategic Plan—while the performance budget section highlights a few performance measures, the Strategic Plan section provides the City’s official Strategic Plan in its entirety. Our Strategic Plan and Performance Dashboard earned the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) 2013 Certificate of Excellence for Performance Management.

Fiscal Year 2013 Performance Results Summary The City met 72% of the performance targets that were due in Fiscal Year 2013.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Performance Budgets Accountability & Transparency Efforts To assist with providing the community with updates on revenues, expenditures, and progress at addressing the goals and meeting the targets within the Strategic Plan, the City has Performance and Financial Dashboards available on our website. What are the Dashboards? The Performance Dashboard is a tool to communicate and track the City’s progress on addressing many of the performance targets included in the Strategic Plan. The Financial Dashboard communicates revenue and expenditure information specific to Rock Hill. What information is provided on the Dashboards? Information on the City’s progress at meeting performance targets ranging from reducing crime to meeting milestone dates for major projects is included on the Performance Dashboard. Summaries of expenditures by department and revenues by source are included on the Financial Dashboard. Progress is communicated using various types of graphs and timelines with narrative information. When available, historical performance data are included to offer added context.

How often are the Dashboards updated? The Financial Dashboard is updated monthly. The Performance Dashboard as a whole is updated monthly, however, the frequency of updates for individual performance targets vary. Some targets are evaluated and updated on a monthly basis (e.g., tax base growth), while others are evaluated quarterly (e.g., stormwater master planning, public safety response times) or annually (e.g., code enforcement voluntary compliance rate).

How to access the Dashboards? Visit cityofrockhill.com/transparency.

The City of Rock Hill is committed to using performance measurement to provide data to complement decision making, improve performance, communicate progress, and provide accountability.

Performance Budgets: FY2013-2015 Strategic Plan Introduction

Rock Hill is a community where vision meets action. Our vision, led by Mayor and City Council, is informed by engaging citizens, the business community, and our many community partners. Our actions, carried out by City employees across various departments, engaged residents, and community and business partners all play a pivotal role in moving us from vision to reality. Success requires proper planning and appropriate action. By aligning resources with predetermined initiatives that are tied to a broader vision, the Strategic Plan assists us with using our limited resources deliberately and purposefully to accomplish meaningful goals that contribute to the overall quality of life in our community. The Strategic Plan is intended to serve as a road map which guides us from visions of having a safe, economically healthy community, for example, to the reality of having a community with low crime rates and good paying jobs. Developing the Plan The Strategic Plan is updated every three years. Although the appropriate term length for a strategic plan is debatable, we have found three years to be short enough to acknowledge that we live in an ever-changing world that requires occasional recalibration of goals and tasks but long enough to acknowledge that most goals require more than one year to be accomplished. Each update to our Strategic Plan begins with the administration of a citizens’ survey conducted by an independent third party in which Rock Hill residents are randomly selected to provide satisfaction ratings regarding the City’s delivery of a variety of services. Keeping with the City’s strengthened commitment to community engagement, in October 2011— for the first time in our strategic planning history— we held third party, independently led strategic planning focus group sessions compromised of randomly selected residents. Survey data, focus group feedback, and progress on the previous Strategic Plan’s goals were discussed with Mayor and City Council during the January 2012 strategic planning retreat. After several months of collaboration among the Mayor, City Council, and city staff, the Fiscal Year 2013 through 2015 Strategic Plan was finalized. This Strategic Plan will guide the City from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2015. The Plan After reviewing the ideas and feedback provided during the strategic planning process, a clear recurring theme emerged: Rock Hill strives to be a city known for quality. A city known for providing quality services, having quality places, and being a quality community. The FY2013-2015 Strategic Plan has three focus areas: quality services, quality places, and quali-

From Vision:

Manchester Meadows Master Plan: After our success in the areas of tennis and softball/baseball, the City sought to expand our sports facilities. Manchester Meadows was designed to be a first-rate facility that could serve the needs of local residents and serve as a site for soccer

To Reality:

Since its 2006 construction, Manchester Meadows has captured the interest of park and soccer enthusiasts locally, regionally, and nationally. In summer 2012, Manchester Meadows will host the 2012 US Youth Soccer National Championships. In addition to Manchester Meadows, our velodrome, tennis complex, future BMX track, and many baseball fields, continue to reinforce our success as a leader in sports tourism.

Performance Budgets: FY2013-2015 Strategic Plan We commit to provide quality services. We seek to offer quality places. We strive to be a quality community.

Quality Services: This focus area includes some of the most fundamental responsibilities we have as being the local provider for services such as fire, police, water, sewer, electricity, public works, economic development, customer service, and parks, recreation, and tourism. Quality Places: This focus area involves ensuring that the City offers quality development and places for businesses and community life to flourish. This includes having a vibrant downtown and managing transformative development projects within our community, such as Riverwalk and the Bleachery. Quality Community: This focus area addresses several quality of life initiatives such as supporting neighborhoods within our City, fostering a diverse and inclusive community, building public trust, and encouraging public engagement.

SERVICES Public Safety Economic Development Public Works Utilities Customer Service Parks, Recreation, Tourism

PLACES Old Town/Downtown Business Parks Cherry Road Galleria Area Saluda Street Transformative Projects: Riverwalk Downtown East Bleachery

COMMUNITY Quality of Life Neighborhoods Civic Engagement Public Information Planning & Development

Accomplishing the goals within these three focus areas will require hard work and addressing numerous activities in a variety of areas. Our Strategic Plan activities are predicated on three simple, yet fundamental stages of accomplishing a goal: planning, acting, and evaluating. Our formula for success is to Our award-winning Strategic Plan has enhanced our organiplan properly, act appropriately, and evaluate continuously. zation’s transparency and accountability.

Performance Budgets: FY2013-2015 Strategic Plan Plan properly – Planning activities relate to our ability to plan for the future. Planning activities often precede any action and may involve researching best practices, meeting with partners or conducting master planning for infrastructure improvements. While these activities may seem trivial, they are important because they prepare the foundation for future success. Act appropriately – Action activities relate to our ability to meet desired achievement and service levels and often involve implementing elements from the planning phase. Examples of action activities are meeting police response time goals or revising incentives to enhance business recruitment efforts. Action activities are important because they have tremendous impact on whether we will have successful outcomes. Evaluate continuously – Evaluation activities relate to the effectiveness of both our planning and our actions. Are we seeing a reduction in crime? Do citizens feel safe after dark? Have our marketing efforts successfully recruited new businesses? Evaluation measures are important because

A unique feature of Rock Hill’s Strategic Plan is the inclusion of defined performance targets which provides us with the opportunity to measure our progress on accomplishing our goals and ultimately our vision.

Are We There Yet? When using a road map, it is important to be able to recognize when you have arrived at your desired destination; the same can be said for strategic planning. One of the most distinctive features of our Strategic Plan is its inclusion of performance targets. Our Strategic Plan goes beyond aspiring for robust economic development and safe neighborhoods; Rock Hill’s Strategic Plan clearly states how success will be defined. Whether the goal is to add 500 new jobs in three years or to reduce violent crime in our downtown area by two percent annually, the standards by which the City will be judged are explicitly stated in the Strategic Plan. Because our performance targets are set with appropriate rigor, perfection is not expected; however, ensuring appropriate progress towards accomplishing our vision and communicating that progress to our stakeholders is important – as it supports our commitment to transparency and accountability. Join Us on Our Journey We encourage you to follow our progress as we address the tasks and goals included in the FY2013-2015 Strategic Plan. Each year the City publishes mid-year and year-end progress reports that quantify our progress at meeting the performance targets included in the Strategic Plan. Using both quantifiable data and narrative information, these reports provide meaningful information on both successes and challenges. To complement the semi-annual progress reports, the City has a Performance Dashboard which provides monthly progress updates on many of the goals included in the Strategic Plan. Progress reports and the Performance Dashboard are available on the City’s website – cityofrockhill.com/transparency.

Future Debt In Fiscal Year 2014, the City plans to issue approximately $1.8 million in General Obligation Bonds to fund an expansion to the City’s Law Center which houses the Police Department and Municipal Court. Additionally, the City is planning on refinancing older General Obligation Debt and Revenue Bonds in order to take advantage of lower interest rates. In Fiscal Year 2014, two Utility System borrowings are being considered for infrastructure improvements in the Knowledge Park and Riverwalk areas. The City is also planning an issuance of approximately $80 million in debt within the next five to ten years for the purpose of completing improvements and additions for the City’s Combined Utility System. Utility system rate increases between 2007 and 2013 will service the future debt and continue to fund pay-as-you go projects until that time.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Capital Improvement Program Capital Improvement Program The Capital Improvement Program is used to plan, budget, and finance the purchase and/or construction of large capital infrastructure, facilities, equipment, and other fixed assets. The sections below discuss the various types of capital project categories, estimated impact on the operating budget, and listings of anticipated capital project needs. The capital projects are broken into two categories: annual/routine operating capital and non-recurring capital. Fiscal Year 2014 Capital Improvement Projects The direct impact of capital improvements on the Fiscal Year 2014 budget is $11,167,415. This figure reflects the costs of the improvements themselves. For Fiscal Year 2014, there are significant and non-routine capital expenditures that will have an additional impact on the operating budget beyond the direct cost.

Annual/Routine Operating Capital Items

Non-Routine Capital Improvement Program

Annual operating capital items are capital needs of a recurring nature, such as office equipment and motor vehicles. These needs are funded using revenues of a recurring nature. An outlay for operating capital is defined as:

Non-routine capital items are capital needs of a non-recurring nature, such as a building or park. These needs are usually financed through a bond or other source.

 Any item with a useful life of greater than one year; and  A unit cost of at least $5,000 but less than $100,000. It is generally expected that expenditures for operating capital projects or items will remain fairly constant from year to year as a percent of the City’s total budget. However, certain factors may contribute to fluctuations. For example, variances in actual revenues from projections have a direct bearing on capital spending decisions. One of the most common categories within the annual operating capital section is fleet replacement. Having a reliable fleet is pivotal to providing excellent service delivery to our citizens. In addition to providing routine maintenance to our fleet through the Fleet Services division, given the high usage and age of our fleet, it is often necessary to replace portions of our fleet on an annual basis. The City has taken steps to plan for the acquisition of new fleet by implementing a financing schedule for the purchase or leasepurchase financing for fleet replacement.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015

The non-routine capital items primarily focus on larger capital items and construction projects and differs from the operating capital items and budget in two respects:

 Any capital equipment with a cost of more than $100,000; and

 Any construction project with a cost of more than $100,000. This fiscal year, there are three major non-routine capital improvements happening in the City: a BMX Supercross Track, Law Center Expansion improvements, and Fountain Park. These three nonroutine items are financed through general obligation and TIF bonds. Although these projects have initial financing, there are anticipated operating costs on current and future operating budgets. For more information on these costs, please see the “Impact of Capital Investments on Operating Budgets” section on the following page.

Capital Improvement Program– Process and Expense Impact Capital Improvement Process and Long Range Financial Planning Throughout the budget process, capital projects are an important part of our planning process. In order to best prioritize projects, the City refers to our strategic plan and how to best work towards our goals. Biweekly, the City has Civil Projects meetings where employees from all relevant departments collaborate to work on ongoing projects and plan for upcoming changes. Monthly, project teams meet on specific areas of town to discuss capital projects. For example, the Bleachery, Knowledge Park, and Fountain Park project teams focus on ensuring the best use of City resources to complete projects in the Downtown area. City Management and the Utility Departments also meet quarterly to review the Utilities capital improvement plans. Through the intense planning and forethought of our elected officials and employees, the City is constantly focusing on capital projects. The City is currently in the process of developing a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan as a separate document for City Council’s approval. Recent developments in the Knowledge Park area have been discussed with our elected officials according to the strategic plan. On pages 157-159, an example from the Capital Improvement Plan has been included for the Downtown area which is divided into three major areas: Textile Corridor, Old Town, and the Fountain Park. Impact of Capital Investments on Operating Budget Non-recurring capital investments can have a dramatic impact on the operating budget for the new fiscal year, as well as years to come. In planning for the result of these recurring expenses on the operating budget, the City has made sure to fully calculate the ongoing expenses. Also, the City must take into account the decline in operating funds to satisfy the new debt payment. In this coming fiscal year, the City has two major projects that have great impacts on the City’s operating budgets in year one and year two. Although there are other capital projects that have additional operational expenses, these are two examples of larger operational increases. BMX Supercross Track The BMX Supercross Track is a new facility that will be the responsibility of the Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department. Inherent in creating a new facility, there is a need for new personnel to run the day-to-day operations of the facility. For this reason, the 2014 fiscal year budget includes two new positions: a Recreation Coordinator I, to be in charge of running the operation, and a Crew Worker II, who will oversee the maintenance of the facility. These new positions will be hired in for a partial year in 2014 as the facility will not open until late March 2014. Additional funds were also included to pay for the associated increased custodial costs, property insurance, grounds maintenance, and utility costs. Altogether, the Fiscal Year 2014 budget includes a debt payment of $453,280 and an increased operating cost of $62,490. The operating costs will greatly increase in Fiscal Year 2015 to $109,853 and a debt payment of $435,650 which will continue on for many years to come. Law Center Upgrades The City is in the process of upgrading the Law Center, which houses the Police Department and Municipal Court. In adding an additional courtroom, office space, and meeting rooms, there have been increased costs. With an additional courtroom, there is a need for a new police officer to help keep the proceedings safe. As the law center isn’t scheduled to be completed until April 2014, this officer will only work a partial year. The increased space will also create more needs for custodial, landscaping, and utility costs. Property insurance is also slightly increasing to account for the upgraded building. Fiscal Year 2014 includes a debt service payment of $123,000 and increased operating costs of $49,723. In Fiscal Year 2015 and onward, the debt service payment will stay at $123,000, but operating costs will increase to $82,264.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Capital Improvement Program– Enterprise Funds The first schedule below details the Operating Budget revenues created from rate increases. Projects are funded during the effective year of the increase in the respective fund, and that same amount is reserved subsequent years through Fiscal Year 2017 for additional phases or projects. As Fiscal Year 2018 approaches, the rate increases will build the capacity for debt service for the $87 million bond issuance. This plan, which began in Fiscal Year 2008, avoids rate shock to our customers by raising the necessary funding to pay the ultimate debt service over time. In the meantime, the plan also allows for pay-as-you-go projects. While the chart below displays Fiscal Years 2009 through 2017, the plan has been in place since Fiscal Year 2008. The next page shows the planned projects for the coming five years paid for solely by rate increases.

Accounts Receivable: An asset account reflecting amounts owing to open accounts from private persons or organizations for goods and services furnished by a government.

Capital Improvement Program (CIP): A plan for purchasing, leasing, and/or constructing the equipment or property needed to complete the City’s long-term improvement projects. The plan details by year (over a fixed number of years) for each project. The plan also specifies the resources estimated to be available to pay for the project expenditures. Capital Outlay: Equipment with a value in excess of $5,000 and an expected life of more than one year.

The issuance of COPs is secured by lease-purchase agreements to which the City is a party. Consumer Price Index (CPI): A statistical description of price levels provided by the U.S. Department of Labor. The index is used as a measure of the increase in the cost of living.

Appendix Financial Policies The City of Rock Hill has developed a comprehensive set of financial policies that are consistent with the City’s goals and objectives. Specific attention has been given to make sure that these policies are both consistent and relationally sound. Financial policies are an integral part of the development of service, capital, and financial plans and the budget. They provide the basis for decision-making and continue Rock Hill’s tradition of financial stability. FP 1: Fund Balances The City will maintain stabilization funds at levels sufficient to protect the City's credit as well as its financial position from emergencies. The City of Rock Hill seeks to maintain a prudent level of financial resources to protect against reducing service levels or raising taxes and fees because of temporary revenue shortfalls or unpredicted one-time expenditures. Stabilization funds are called by many names including rainy day funds, unreserved, undesignated fund balances, and contingency funds. These funds are used at a government’s discretion for many purposes: to address temporary cash flow shortages; to fund emergencies; unanticipated economic downturns; and one-time opportunities. These funds provide flexibility to respond to unexpected opportunities that may help a government achieve its goals. The minimum and maximum amounts to be accumulated are based on the types of revenue, the level of uncertainty associated with revenues, the condition of capital assets, or the City’s level of security with its financial position. It is the goal of the City of Rock Hill to maintain a General Fund Balance equal to at least 15% of the total audited General Fund expenditures from the previous fiscal year and to maintain Enterprise Fund Unrestricted Net Assets equal to at least 20% of total Enterprise Fund operating expenses for the previous fiscal year. The State of South Carolina does not provide any local government constraints regarding the establishment of stabilization funds. The following summarizes the City's policy on different types of fund balances: Nonspendable The nonspendable fund balance includes amounts that cannot be spent because they are either not in spendable form, such as supplies inventories, or are legally or contractually required to be maintained intact, such as principal donated to the City to be invested and held in a permanent fund from which only the investment earnings can be spent. Restricted Fund balance is reported as restricted when constraints placed on the use of resources are either externally imposed by creditors (such as through debt covenants), grantors, contributors, or laws or regulations of other governments or is imposed by law through constitutional provisions or enabling legislation (City ordinances). Enabling legislation includes a legally enforceable requirement that those resources be used only for the specific purposes stipulated in the legislation. Legal enforceability means that the City can be compelled by an external party to use resources created by enabling legislation only for the purposes specified by the legislation. Committed The committed fund balance classification includes amounts that can be used only for the specific purposes imposed by formal action of City Council. Those committed amounts cannot be used for any other purpose unless City Council removes or changes the specified use by taking the same type of action it employed to previously commit those amounts. In contrast to fund balance that is restricted by enabling legislation, committed fund balance classification may be redeployed for other purposes with appropriate due process. Constraints imposed on the use of committed amounts are imposed by City Council, separate from the authorization to raise the underlying revenue; therefore, compliance with these constraints is not considered to be legally enforceable. Committed fund balance also incorporates contractual obligations to the extent that existing resources in the fund have been specifically committed for use in satisfying those contractual requirements. Assigned

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015

197


Appendix Amounts in the assigned fund balance classification are intended to be used by the City for specific purposes but do not meet the criteria to be classified as restricted or committed. In governmental funds other than the General Fund, assigned fund balance represents the remaining amount that is not restricted or committed. In the General Fund, assigned amounts represent intended uses established by City Council or the City Manager or his designee. Unassigned Unassigned fund balance is the residual classification for the General Fund and includes all spendable amounts not contained in the other classifications. In other governmental funds, the unassigned classification is used only to report a deficit balance resulting from overspending for specific purposes for which amounts had been restricted, committed, or assigned. FP 2: Revenue The City will design, maintain and administer a revenue system that will assure a reliable, equitable, diversified and sufficient revenue stream to support desired City services. Since the principle revenue stream for the government is determined by the fees and charges that are established, it is important that the City adopt policies that identify the manner in which fees and charges are set and the extent to which they cover the cost of the service provided. A revenue system that requires the identification of both the cost of the program and the portion of the cost that will be recovered through fees & charges allows the City and its citizens to develop a better understanding of the cost of services and to consider the appropriateness of established fees and charges. To that end, the City has established the following goals that are used to accomplish this policy: 1. The City will seek to establish all user charges fees at a level related to the full costs (operating, direct, indirect and capital) of providing the service. The City will review these fees & charges annually in the budget process and target rates that meet the cost to serve – particularly in the City’s key businesses (Public Safety, Public Works, Electric, Water, Wastewater, and Parks, Recreation & Tourism). In any event, all enterprise funds will be self-supporting. 2. Costs of service include direct and indirect costs such as operating and maintenance costs, overhead, and charges for use of capital (depreciation and debt service). A government may choose not to recover all costs, but it should identify such costs. Reasons for not recovering full costs should be identified and explained. State and local law may govern the establishment of fees and charges. 3. The City will consider market rates and charges levied by other businesses and municipalities for like services in establishing rates, fees and charges. These fees will be reviewed through the City’s annual rate survey. 4. One-time or special revenues shall not be used to finance ongoing City operations but rather be used for the funding of special projects. 5. An aggressive policy of seeking the collection of delinquent utility and license fee accounts will be maintained. 6. Citizen input into decisions relating to revenues will be solicited during the annual budget public hearing process and will be made available for public review prior to City Council consideration of first reading. 7. In determining revenue projections - and where judgment is required - conservatism shall be the rule.

Appendix FP 3: Diversified Revenue Base The City will annually review its revenue source to maintain a diversified revenue base The City of Rock Hill is committed to a diverse revenue base. Since all revenue sources have particular characteristics in terms of stability, growth, sensitivity to inflation or business cycle effects, and impact on tax and rate payers - a diversity of revenue sources can improve a government’s ability to handle fluctuations in revenues and potentially help to better distribute the cost of providing services. The City will identify approaches that will be used to improve revenue diversification. In accomplishing this policy, the City will analyze the sensitivity of revenues to changes in rates, the fairness of the tax or fee, administrative aspects of the revenue source, and other relevant issues. Over time the City will strive to improve its revenue diversity to the extent feasible. Since the City is statutorily limited as to the types of revenues it may raise, it may consider options to enhance flexibility within the constraints of available revenue sources. For example, The City will seek to diversify the tax base on which the property tax is levied. FP 4: Use of One-Time Revenue The City will limit the use of one-time revenues to pay for ongoing expenditures of the government By definition, one-time revenues cannot be relied on in future budget periods. Since the use of one-time revenues can have disruptive effects on services due to non-recurrence of these sources, the City will dedicate one-time revenues (e.g. infrequent sales of government assets, bond refunding savings, infrequent revenues from development, and grants) to be used on expenditures appropriate startup costs, stabilization, special projects, and capital purchases. Any use of revenue that adds to the ongoing expenditure base will be carefully reviewed and minimized (e.g., capital expenditures that significantly increase ongoing operating expenses without a sustainable and offsetting long-term revenue plan). FP 5: Revenue Classification The City will annually evaluate all revenues, determine those that are considered to be unpredictable, and determine the best use of those revenues A financial plan for governments should take into account the unpredictable nature of key revenues. This ensures that a government understands the potential impact on its ability to cover service costs and develops contingency plans in advance to address unpredictable revenue fluctuations. Specific allocation and contingency plans do not have to be developed for all unpredictable revenues, but become increasingly necessary as the size or unpredictability of the revenue source increases. The City will annually identify major revenue sources it considers unpredictable and define how these revenues may be used. Unpredictable revenue sources cannot be relied on as to the level of revenue they will generate. Particularly with major revenue sources, it is important to consider how significant variation in revenue receipts will affect the government’s financial outlook and ability to operate programs in the current and future budget periods. For each major unpredictable revenue source, the City will identify those aspects of the revenue source that make the revenue unpredictable. Most importantly, the City will identify the expected or normal degree of

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015

199


Appendix volatility of the revenue source. For example, revenues from a particular source may fluctuate, but rarely, if ever, fall below some predictable minimum base. The City will decide, in advance, on a set of tentative actions to be taken if these revenue sources generate revenues substantially higher or lower than projected. The plans should be publicly discussed and used in budget decision making. FP 6: Operating Transfers The City will quantify operating transfers from the utility system to cover general fund expenses The City has traditionally made operating transfers from the Utility Fund to the General Fund. City Council has determined that the City needs to maintain the competitiveness of the utility system and to reduce the General Fund’s need for Utility Fund transfers. These transfers should be established at a level that is supportable by current utility business practices. In quantifying these transfers, the City uses a formula that presupposes that utility services would have been provided by a privately-owned utility instead of the City’s publicly owned utility. Such utility would have paid municipal ad valorem taxes and a franchise fee to the General Fund of the City and the utility’s investors would have been entitled to a return on their investment. For this reason, the city has established the following policy guideline regarding franchise fees, payments in lieu of taxes, rates of return and operating transfers from the utility system: 1.

Franchise Fees. The City shall budget annually a franchise fee from the Utility Fund that equals the franchise fee that would have been paid had electric, water and sewer services been provided by an investor-owned utility. The franchise fee shall be calculated by multiplying all gross revenues of the electric, water and sewer systems made within the City’s corporate boundaries by the current franchise fee the City charges to private utility providers (5%). The franchise fee shall be reported as an expense of the electric, water and sewer system and as a revenue of the General Fund.

2.

Payment in Lieu of Taxes. The City shall budget annually a payment in lieu of taxes from the electric, water, and sewer systems to the General Fund that approximates the amount of ad valorem taxes that would have been paid had utility services been provided by an investor-owned utility. The payment in lieu of taxes shall be calculated by multiplying the gross fixed assets of the system reported in the City’s most recent audited financial statements by the appropriate assessment ratio and then by the City-wide tax rate included in the City’s most recent budget ordinance. The resulting product shall be multiplied by the estimated percentage of electric, water and sewer fixed assets that are located within the City’s corporate boundaries. The payment in lieu of taxes amount calculated under this section shall be reported as an expense of the electric, water and sewer system and as a revenue of the General Fund.

3.

Rate of Return. The City may budget annually a rate of return on the gross operational revenues of the electric, water and sewer systems. This rate of return will be based on 5% of gross utility revenues and may be adjusted by City Council to meet the current competitive utility business environment. The rate of return amount calculated under this section shall be reported as an expense of the electric, water and sewer system and as revenue of the General Fund.

4.

Exceptions. The amount to be paid from the electric, water and sewer systems under this resolution may be increased or reduced upon approval of the City Council.

FP 7: Operational Reporting City staff will provide to the City Council a report on the operating results of the City

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Appendix All excess revenue collected by the City of Rock Hill that exceeds the projected budget revenue figure from a specific revenue category for each fiscal reporting period must be reported to City Council on a monthly basis. The expenditure of any and all excess revenue will be at Council’s discretion and cannot be utilized within the City budget without Council’s approval. Likewise, all expenditures that exceed the projected budget expense figures in excess of $5,000 on a departmental level must be reported to Council in writing by the next scheduled Council meeting. Expenditures that would cause an increase above the $5,000 cap on a departmental level cannot be made without prior approval of Council. Cost savings that may occur within a specific department can be utilized within that particular department; however, this cost savings cannot be transferred to another department without prior approval of Council. FP 8: Adoption of Balanced Budget The City will annually adopt a Balanced Operating Budget According to the laws of the State of South Carolina, the City will adopt a balanced operating budget and provide full disclosure when a deviation from a balanced operating budget is planned or when it occurs. This balanced budget will ensure that all operating revenues are equal to, or exceed, all operating expenditures at adoption and at year-end. Any increase in expenses, decrease in revenues, or combination of the two that would result in a budget imbalance will require budget revision, rather than spending unappropriated surpluses or designated reserves to support ongoing operations. Any year end operating surpluses will revert to unappropriated balances. The City of Rock Hill annual budget appropriation will cover the twelve-month period beginning July 1 and ending June 30 of the following year. The proposed budget document is to be presented to the City Council for their consideration no later than June 1 with adoption of the approved ordinance by June 30. According to state law, any required public hearings will be scheduled to receive input on the development of the budget. Special public hearings are also required to consider the issue of a tax increase. Budgets shall be prepared at the department level and provide the basis for the City’s financial management system. The adopted appropriations by fund shall constitute the maximum expenditure authorization for that fund and can be amended only by action of the City Council. The budget shall be developed in conjunction with a stated program of performance objectives and measures with which to gauge progress towards meeting those objectives. The following guidelines will be used in the preparation of the budget document: 1. Current appropriations in all funds are limited to the sum of available, unencumbered cash balances and revenues estimated to be received in the current budget period. 2. General Fund expenditures and subsidy appropriations for mandated and priority programs are to be made against current revenue sources, and not dependent upon uncertain reserves or fluctuating prior period cash balances. 3. Special Revenue Funds are supported by special levies and fees, grants or intergovernmental revenues. Expenditures in these funds are strictly limited to the mandates of the funding source. Special Revenue Funds are not to be used to subsidize other funds, except as required or permitted by program regulations. 4. All operations of the Enterprise Fund will be self-supporting entities. The City will conduct an annual

201


Appendix review of fee structures, charges for services, and other operating revenues and expenditures. 5. Multi-year operating cost projections shall be prepared and updated each year to identify the impact on resources. 6. A ten-year Capital Improvements Program shall be prepared and updated each year. The operating impact of each project shall be identified and incorporated into annual operating budgets. Capital assets shall be purchased and maintained on a regular schedule. Within legal limits and the constraints of operating budgets, debt shall be issued for the purchase of capital assets, including major renovations. 7. For purposes of this policy, the cash basis of accounting are used in defining revenues and expenditures. 8. It will be the duty of the City Manager to take action to bring the budget into balance if adjustments are needed in the course of a fiscal period.

FP 9: Delivery of Services The City will Identify priority services, establish appropriate service levels, and administer the expenditure of available resources to assure fiscal stability and the effective and efficient delivery of services. The City will operate on a current funding basis. Expenditures shall be budgeted and controlled so as not to exceed current revenues plus the planned use of fund balance accumulated through prior years. The City shall take immediate corrective actions if at any time during the fiscal year expenditure and revenue reestimates are such that an operating deficit is projected at year-end. Corrective actions are outlines separately within these policies. Expenditure deferrals into the following fiscal year, short-term loans, or use of one-time revenue sources to balance the budget will be avoided. The Finance Director is charged with performing periodic staff and third-party reviews of City programs for both efficiency and effectiveness. Privatization and contracting with other governmental agencies will be evaluated as alternatives to service delivery. Programs that are determined to be inefficient and/or ineffective are to be reduced in scope or eliminated. The City of Rock Hill makes every effort to maximize any discounts offered by creditors / vendors. Staff shall also use competitive bidding to attain the best possible price on goods and services. FP 10: Debt Policy The City will adhere to a debt policy that ensures that debt is issued and managed prudently in order to maintain a sound fiscal position and protect credit quality Issuing debt commits the City’s revenues several years into the future, and may limit the City’s flexibility to respond to changing service priorities, revenue inflows, or cost structures. A debt policy sets forth the parameters for issuing debt and managing outstanding debt and provides guidance to decision makers regarding the timing and purposes for which debt may be issued, types and amounts of permissible debt, method of sale that may be used and structural features that may be incorporated. The City plans long- and short-term debt issuance to finance its capital program based on its cash flow needs, sources of revenue, capital construction periods, available financing instruments and market conditions.

202

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Appendix The Director of Finance oversees and coordinates the timing, issuance process and marketing of the City’s borrowing and capital funding activities required in support of the capital improvement plan. This debt policy recognizes a binding commitment to full and timely repayment of all debt as an intrinsic requirement for entry into the capital markets. Adherence to a debt policy helps to ensure that the City maintains a sound debt position and that credit quality is protected. Components of the debt policy are as follows:

The City will confine its long-term borrowing to capital improvements and follow a policy of full disclosure on every financial report and bond prospectus. In no case will General obligation debt will not be used for self-supporting enterprise activity. The City will use voter-approved general obligation debt to fund generalpurpose public improvements that cannot be financed from current revenues. Capital Planning. The City will have an annual capital planning process that outlines major projected capital expenditures over the next ten years. The capital budget identifies revenue sources and capital expenditures and projects this information for each of the ten years. This information is updated annually. Financing Team. The City often employs outside financial specialists to assist it in developing a bond issuance strategy, preparing bond documents and marketing bonds to investors. The key players in the City’s financing transactions include its bond counsel, the underwriter and underwriters counsel (on a negotiated sale), the City attorney and City representatives (the Director of Finance and other City representatives as may be appointed by the City Manager). Other outside firms, such as those providing paying agent/registrar, trustee, credit enhancement, auditing, or printing services, are retained as required. The financing team will meet at least annually to review the overall financing strategy of the City and make recommendations to the City Manager. Term of Debt Repayment. Borrowings by the City shall mature over a term that does not exceed the economic life of the improvements that they finance. General Obligation Bonds shall be issued with a term not to exceed 25 years; Revenue Bonds with a term not to exceed 30 years; and tax increment bonds with a term not to exceed 25 years. The City does not finance improvements with a probable useful life less than twenty years, using pay-as-you-go funding for such needs. Call provisions. The City seeks to minimize the protection from optional redemption given to bondholders, consistent with its desire to obtain the lowest possible interest rates on its bonds. The City’s bonds are generally subject to optional redemption. The City seeks early calls at low or no premiums because such features have allowed it in the past to refinance debt more easily for debt service savings when interest rates dropped. The City will annually evaluate optional redemption provisions for each issue to assure that the City does not pay unacceptably higher interest rates to obtain such advantageous calls. Interest rates. In most cases, the city will use fixed-rate debt to finance it capital needs; however, the City may issue up to 25% of its total debt portfolio in variable rate debt. Method of Sale. The City will select a method of sale that is the most appropriate in light of financial, market, transaction-specific and issuer-related conditions. Competitive Sales. General obligation debt obligations are issued through a competitive sale – according to state law. For these bonds – and any other bonds that the City may deem necessary - the City will set the terms of the sale to encourage as many bidders as possible. By maximizing bidding, the City seeks to obtain the lowest possible interest rates on its bonds. The following conditions may favor the use of a competitive sale: 1.

The market is familiar with the issuer;

The issuer is a stable and regular borrower in the public market; There is an active secondary market with a broad investor base for the City’s bonds; The issue has a non-enhanced credit rating of A or above or can obtain a credit enhancement prior to the competitive sale; The debt structure is backed by the issuer’s full faith and credit or a strong, known or historically performing revenue stream; The issue is neither too large to be easily absorbed by the market nor too small to attract investors without a concerted sale effort; The issue does not include complex or innovative features or require explanation as to the bonds’ security; The issue can be sold and closed on a schedule that does not need to be accelerated or shortened for market or policy reasons; and Interest rates are stable, market demand is strong, and the market is able to absorb a reasonable amount of buying or selling at reasonable price changes

Negotiated Sales. When certain conditions favorable for a competitive sale do not exist and when a negotiated sale will provide significant benefits to the City that would not be achieved through a competitive sale, the City may elect to sell its debt obligations through a private or negotiated sale. Such determination may be made on an issue-by-issue basis, for a series of issues, or for part or all of a specific financing program. The following conditions may favor the use of a negotiated sale: 1. 2. 3.

Insure fairness by using a competitive underwriter selection process through a request for proposals where multiple proposals are considered; Remain actively involved in each step of the negotiation and sale processes to uphold the public trust; Insure that either an employee of the issuer, or an outside professional other than the issue underwriter, who is familiar with and abreast of the condition of the municipal market, is available to assist in structuring the issue, pricing, and monitoring sales activities; Require that the financial advisor used for a particular bond issue not act as underwriter of the same bond issue; Require that financial professionals disclose the name or names of any person or firm, including attorneys, lobbyists and public relations professionals compensated in connection with a specific bond issue; Request all financial professionals submitting joint proposals or intending to enter into joint accounts or any fee-splitting arrangements in connection with a bond issue to fully disclose to the issuer any plan or arrangements to share tasks, responsibilities and fees earned, and disclose the financial professionals with whom the sharing is proposed, the method used to calculate the fees to be earned, and any changes thereto; and Review the “Agreement among Underwriters” and insure that it is filed with the issuer and that it governs all transactions during the underwriting period.

Refinancing. The City may undertake refinancing of outstanding debt under the following circumstances: Debt Service Savings. The City may refinance outstanding long-term debt when such refinancing allows the City to realize significant debt service savings without lengthening the term of refinanced debt and without increasing debt service in any subsequent fiscal year. Defeasance. The City may refinance outstanding debt, either by advance refunding to the first call or by defeasance to maturity, when the public policy benefits of replacing such debt outweigh the costs associated with new issuance as well as any increase in annual debt service. Conduit Financings. Conduit financings are securities issued by a government agency to finance a project

Appendix of a third party, such as a non-profit organization or other private entity. The City may sponsor conduit financings for those activities (e.g., economic development, housing) that have a general public purpose and are consistent with the City’s overall service and policy objectives. Unless a compelling public policy rationale exists, such conduit financings will not in any way pledge the City’s faith and credit. Credit Ratings Rating Agency Relationships. The Director of Finance is responsible for maintaining relationships with the rating agencies that assign ratings to the City’s various debt obligations. This effort includes providing periodic updates on the City’s general financial condition along with coordinating meetings and presentations in conjunction with a new debt issuance. Quality of Ratings. The City requests ratings prior to the sale of securities from each of the two major rating agencies for municipal bond issues: Moody’s Investors Service and Standard & Poor’s Corporation. The City may provide a written and/or oral presentation to the rating agencies to help each credit analyst make an informed evaluation. The City will make every reasonable effort to maintain its high quality credit ratings. Rebate Reporting/Covenant Compliance/Reporting Practices. The Director of Finance is responsible for maintaining a system of record keeping and reporting to meet the arbitrage rebate compliance requirements of the federal tax code. Additionally, general financial reporting and certification requirements embodied in bond covenants are monitored to ensure that all covenants are complied with. The City will comply with the standards of the Government Finance Officers Association for financial reporting and budget presentation and the disclosure requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Checklist of Debt Policy Considerations. The City will observe the following GFOA checklist in determining the appropriateness of debt issuance 1. How long is the capital planning period? 2. Have all non-debt sources of funds been considered? 3. How are borrowing plans reviewed internally? 4. What level of debt is manageable in order to maintain or improve the government’s credit quality? 5. How much “pay-as-you-go” financing should be included in the capital plan? 6. How much short-term borrowing will be undertaken, including both operating and capital borrowings? 7. How much debt will be issued in the form of variable-rate securities? 8. How does the redemption schedule for each proposed issue affect the overall debt service requirements of the government? 9. What types of affordability guidelines will be established to help monitor and preserve credit quality? 10. What provisions have been made to periodically review the capital plan and borrowing practices? 11. What is the overlapping debt burden on the taxpayer? 12. How will the formal debt policies be integrated into the capital planning and funding process? FP 11: Debt Limit The city will establish thresholds for the maximum amount of debt and debt service that should be outstanding at any one time. Policies guiding the amount of debt that may be issued by a government help ensure that outstanding and planned debt levels do not exceed an amount that can be supported by the existing and projected tax and revenue base. Because of this, the City has developed distinct policies for general obligation debt, debt supported by

205


Appendix revenues of government enterprises, and other types of debt such as special assessment bonds, tax increment financing bonds, short-term debt, variable-rate debt, and leases. General Obligation Debt Affordability Measures. The City examines four statistical measures to determine debt capacity and compares these ratios to other cities, rating agency standards and Rock Hill’s historical ratios to determine debt affordability: This is the only measure that is prescribed by state law, which provides that the City’s general obligation debt cannot exceed 8% of the City’s total assessed value (excluding tax anticipation notes and other indebtedness with a maturity of one year or less; bonds or other indebtedness of the City payable from taxes levied from special taxing areas; and self-supporting bonds or other debt.) Total general obligation debt as measured against the population on a per-capita basis cannot exceed $225. Total annual general obligation debt as measured as a percent of current expenditures cannot exceed 12%. Utility Enterprise Debt Affordability Measures. The City’s Revenue debt level shall not exceed a debt service coverage ratio of 1.20 times of the annual net pledged revenues to annual debt service. In addition additional bonds should not have a negative impact on the City’s overall credit ratings. Tax Increment Debt Affordability Measures. The City’s Tax Increment debt level shall not exceed the current available revenues or revenues projected within the district from projects that have obtained a building permit.

FP 12: Contingency Planning The City will develop practices to guide the financial actions it will take in the event of emergencies, natural disasters, or other unexpected events. When emergencies or unexpected events occur, having a policy that can be applied, or at least serve as a starting point, for financial decisions and actions improves the ability of a government to take timely action and aids in the overall management of such situations. Policies on contingency planning are used as a general guide when an emergency or unexpected event occurs. A set of actions and strategies are identified for each type of situation. Examples of financial emergencies that require contingency plans are sudden and severe decreases in locally collected revenues or intergovernmental aid, and unexpected major capital maintenance requirements. Development of a contingency plan in advance of such situations may be viewed positively by the rating agencies when evaluating a government’s credit quality. This can also help expedite relief efforts when an emergency does occur and allow the government to recover funds more quickly or more effectively in the event of a natural disaster. The following is a summary of the phase classifications and the corresponding actions to be taken. Alert. An anticipated net reduction in available reserves or reduction in major revenue source(s) from 1% up to 9%. The actions associated with this phase would best be described as delaying expenditures where reasonably possible, while maintaining the "Same Level" of service. Each department will be responsible for monitoring its individual budgets to ensure that only essential expenditures are made. Minor. A reduction in reserves in excess of 9%, but less than 23%. The objective at this level is still to maintain "Same Level" of service where possible. Actions associated with this level would be: a. Implementing the previously determined "Same Level" Budget. b. Intensifying the review process for large items such as contract services, consulting services,

Appendix and capital expenditures including capital improvements. c. Closely scrutinizing hiring for vacant positions, delaying the recruitment process, and using temporary help to fill in where possible. Moderate. A reduction in reserves in excess of 23%, but less than 50%. Initiating cuts of service levels by: a. Requiring greater justification for large expenditures. b. Deferring capital expenditures. c. Reducing CIP appropriations from the affected fund. d. Hiring to fill vacant positions only with special justification and authorization. e. Closely monitoring and reducing expenditures for travel, seminars, retreats and bonuses. Major. A reduction in reserves of 50% to 100%. Implementation of major service cuts. a. Instituting a hiring freeze. b. Reducing the temporary work force. c. Deferring merit wage increases. d. Further reducing capital expenditures. e. Preparing a strategy for reduction in force. Crisis. Reserves have been 100% depleted and potential for having a deficit is present. a. Implementing reduction in force or other personnel cost-reduction strategies. b. Eliminating programs. c. Eliminating capital improvements. In the event that an economic uncertainty is expected to last for consecutive years, the cumulative effect of the projected reduction in reserves will be used for determining the appropriate phase and corresponding actions.

FP 13: Accounting Functions The City of Rock Hill will perform accounting functions that shall conform to the generally accepted accounting principles as applicable to governments. The diverse nature of governmental operations and the necessity of assuring legal compliance preclude recording all governmental financial transactions and balances in a single accounting entity. Therefore, from an accounting and financial management viewpoint, a governmental unit is a combination of several distinctly different fiscal and accounting entities, each having a separate set of accounts and functioning independently of each other. The City will comply with prevailing federal, state, and local statutes and regulations. The City will also conform to generally accepted accounting principles as promulgated by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). In general, it will be the policy of the City to: Prepare and present regular reports that analyze, evaluate, and forecast the City’s financial performance and economic conditions. This information will be made available to the public for their inspection. With available resources, the City will seek out and employ the assistance of qualified financial advisors and consultants in the management and administration of the City’s financial functions.

Appendix An independent audit will be performed annually. The City will issue annual financial reports in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) as outlined in the Governmental Accounting, Auditing and Financial Reporting (GAAFR) publication. The basis of accounting refers to the point at which revenues or expenditures/expenses are recognized in the accounts and reported in the financial statements. It relates to the timing of the measurements made regardless of the measurement focus applied. As in the basis of budgeting, accounting records for the City of Rock Hill governmental funds are maintained on a modified accrual basis with the revenues being recorded when available and measurable and expenditures being recorded when the services or goods are received and the liabilities are incurred. In contrast to the basis of budgeting, accounting records for proprietary funds are maintained on the accrual basis in which revenues are recognized when earned and expenses are recognized when incurred. The City of Rock Hill’s accounting system is organized and operated on a "fund" basis. Each accounting entity is accounted for in a separate "fund” which is defined as a fiscal accounting entity with a self-balancing set of accounts recording cash and other financial resources together with related liabilities and residual equities or balances, and changes therein. Two fund types defined in the “Description of Budgeted Funds are further defined below as well as the addition of Fiduciary Funds. Classification Fund Type Governmental Funds General Special Revenue Debt Service Capital Projects Proprietary Funds Enterprise Fiduciary Funds Agency Expendable Trust Governmental Funds. These funds are, in essence, accounting segregations of financial resources. Expendable assets are assigned to the various governmental funds according to the purposes for which they may or must be used; current liabilities are assigned to the fund from which they are to be paid; and the differences between governmental fund assets and liabilities (the fund equity) is referred to as "Fund Balance". The primary measurement focus is “flow of current financial resources.” Increases in spendable resources are reported in the operating statement as revenues or other financing sources, and decreases are reported as expenditures or other financing uses.

Proprietary Funds. These funds are sometimes referred to as "income determination," "non expendable," or "commercial type" funds and are used to account for a government's on-going organizations and activities which are similar to those often found in the private sector. All assets, liabilities, equities, revenues, expenses, and transfers relating to the government's business and quasi-business activities, where net income and capital maintenance are measured, are accounted for through proprietary funds. The generally accepted accounting principles here are those applicable to similar businesses in the private sector, and the measurement focus is the economic condition of the fund as a result of the events and transactions of the period. Events and transactions that improve the economic position of a proprietary fund are reported as revenues or gains in the operating statement. Those that diminish the economic position are reported as expenses or losses. Fiduciary Funds. These funds account for assets held by the City in a trustee capacity or as an agent for other governmental units and for other funds. Each trust fund is accounted for as either a gov-

Appendix FP 14: Economic Development Incentive Policy The City of Rock Hill will provide economic development incentives with the goals of targeting economic and geographic sectors; promoting business retention and recruitment; encouraging job creation; increasing property tax revenue; and improving blight, economically distressed areas, and environmental conditions. In general it will be the policy of the City to maintain a fund, replenish the fund, and provide financial incentives programs in accordance with the strategic goals of the City. Financial Incentive Programs: Growth Management Incentives Façade Grants Job Creation Land Acquisition Environmental Testing and/or Cleanup Gap Financing Infrastructure extensions Other Business Incentives at the discretion of the City Council Guidelines for Limits to Incentives: Growth Management incentives: as approved by City Council in the Growth Management Incentive Policy Façade Grants: to specific geographic areas Infrastructure: in general, to a 5 year payback from Utility revenues Fund Establishment and Replenishment: The Economic Development Incentive Fund was established from the land sale proceeds of City property in the Dave Lyle/Manchester area. The following revenue sources are identified to replenish the fund: Interest income from the fund Cell tower rental revenues from Hwy 901 Water Tank Site Proceeds from the sale of property in City Business Parks: Tech Park – 50% of land sale proceeds Southway Industrial Park – 100% of land sale proceeds Proceeds from the sale of property in the Dave Lyle/Manchester area Proceeds from the sale of other City owned property at the discretion of Council Performance Monitoring: The effectiveness of the overall economic development incentive fund and each project funded shall be measured and reported annually to ensure that the overall goals of the program are met.

FP 15: Written Procedures Related to the Issuance of Tax-Exempt Bonds Post-issuance tax compliance begins with the debt issuance process itself and provides for a continuing focus on investments of bond proceeds and use of bond-financed property. It requires identifying existing policies, the responsible people, the applicable procedures, and the affected population. I.

Procedures

The City Manager or the Chief Financial Officer (the “City Representative”) of the City of Rock Hill, South Carolina (the “City”) will be responsible for post-issuance tax compliance and steps to be taken to transfer that responsibility and accumulated information in the future.

209


Appendix The City Representative may delegate to his/her staff responsibility for different aspects, for example investment of bond proceeds and expenditure of bond proceeds on projects, coordinate record-keeping and review; however, the City Representative will be ultimately responsible. II.

Issuance

The City Representative will: Obtain and store the Transcript of Proceedings prepared by bond counsel. Confirm filing of Form 8038-G with the Internal Revenue Service, usually overseen by bond counsel at or soon after closing. III.

Recordkeeping

The City Representative will: Establish plan for keeping relevant books and records as to investment and expenditure of bond proceeds. Keep accurate records including: - Basic records relating to the bond transactions (including the bond ordinances, closing certificates, and bond counsel opinion); - Documentation evidencing expenditure of bond proceeds; - Documentation evidencing use of bond-financed property by public and private sources (i.e., copies of management contracts use agreements); - Documentation evidencing all sources of payment or security for the bonds; and - Documentation pertaining to any investment of bond proceeds (including the purchase and sale of securities, SLGS subscriptions, yield calculations for each class of investments, actual investment income received from the investment of proceeds, guaranteed investment contracts, and rebate calculations). Keep all records in a manner that ensures their complete access to the IRS so long as they are material. While this is typically accomplished through the maintenance of hard copies, records may be kept in an electronic format if certain requirements are satisfied, in accordance with the guidelines in Rev Proc 97-22, 1997-1 C.B. 652. Keep records for as long as the bonds are outstanding plus three years after the final redemption date of the bonds. IV.

Arbitrage

The City Representative will: Engage services of an arbitrage/rebate consultant for assistance in compliance with arbitrage related issues. Monitor compliance with “temporary period expectations” for expenditure of bond proceeds, typically three years for new money bonds, and provide for yield restriction of investments or “yield reduction payments” if expectations are not satisfied. Ensure investments acquired with bond proceeds are purchased at fair market value. This can include use of bidding procedures under regulatory safe harbor.

City of Rock Hill, South Carolina—Fiscal Year 2014/2015


Appendix Consult with the City’s bond counsel prior to the creation of funds which would reasonably be expected to be used to pay debt service on bonds to determine in advance whether such funds must be invested at restricted yield. Consult with the City’s bond counsel before engaging in post-issuance credit enhancement transactions (e.g., bond insurance, letter of credit) or hedging transactions (e.g., interest rate swap, cap). Consult with the City’s bond counsel and arbitrage consultant to identify situations in which compliance with applicable yield restrictions depends upon later investments, (e.g., purchase of 0% SLGS from U.S. Treasury), and monitor implementation. Work with the City’s arbitrage consultant to arrange for timely computation of rebate liability and, if rebate is payable, for timely filing of Form 8038-T and payment of rebate. Rebate is ordinarily due at 5-year intervals. The arbitrage consultant’s report will be reviewed by bond counsel. V.

Private Use of Bonds-Funded Facilities

The City Representative will: Create and maintain records of which proceeds of bond issues were used to finance which facilities. These records shall track refunding or partial refunding of any bond issues. Accurately record the allocation of bond proceeds to expenditures, including reimbursements. These records will be used for arbitrage purposes. Record the allocation of bond proceeds and funds from other sources in connection with any bond funded project. Review expenditure of bond proceeds with bond counsel to ensure bond proceeds are used for qualifying costs. Keep records of private use, if any, of bond financed facilities to ensure the amount of private use of bond financed facilities. Private use of bond-financed facilities shall be reviewed once a year (in connection with the preparation of annual financial statements). If a change in private use occurs, bond counsel will be consulted to determine of remedial action is necessary. Review with bond counsel prior to the sale or lease of a bond-financed facility, or the granting of a license or management contract, or any other arrangement allowing private use of a bond financed facility. VI.

Reissuance

The City Representative will: Consult with bond counsel to identify any post-issuance change to the terms of bonds which could be treated as a current refunding of “old” bonds by “new” bonds, often referred to as a “reissuance.” Consult with bond counsel to determine whether any “remedial action” in connection with a “change of use” must be treated as a “reissuance.”
