How does borrowing work?

It is very similar to getting a loan to build a home.

  • We get approval to borrow a certain amount. The amount approved for borrowing is not necessarily the amount we will borrow; it is a maximum amount.
  • Before we actually borrow, we complete the project and pay for it either with money on hand, a short term loan or a line of credit. We will also be seeking grants and other cost saving opportunities to help reduce the amount borrowed.
  • Once the project is completed, council will look for the best rate and borrow the funds that were spent
  • Loan payments would have an expected start date and then at that point, the loan payments will be collected from residents through their annual property tax bill.
