Gary called the meeting to order at 3:10 P.M.

Gary started the meeting by giving the history of the Poplar Senior Center project.

In 2009, Commissioner Macdonald started to look for a site for the Poplar Senior Center, the City of Poplar agreed to two lots.  Originally the two lots were deeded to City of Poplar by the state of Montana for low income housing.  In 2012, Commissioner Macdonald went to Helena to get a variance on the two lots to use the lots for public use instead of low income housing. Also in 2012, Commissioner Macdonald started to work with Mrs. Twitchell on the planning grant and in 2014 Roosevelt County was awarded the grant.  In February of 2015, the County went out for RFP (request for proposal).  In March of 2015, Roosevelt County had interviews with the architects that submitted a RFP (request for proposal).  On March 30, 2015 Roosevelt County awarded the contract to Stevenson Design as the architect for the Poplar Senior Center project.

Commissioner Macdonald stated the reason for this meeting is to get an idea of where the citizens would like to see the Senior Center at.  It was asked what is taking so long with this project.  Mr. Stevenson explained that these type of projects take time because of the CDBG grant that they would apply for and for the PAR the county needs to look at different sites and get a preferred site from the citizens.  Mr.  Stevenson asked what kind of kitchen the citizens would like to see in the Senior Center such as, commercial or small.  Mr. Kelsey asked the difference between the commercial and small kitchen.  Mr. Stevenson explained the difference would be the hoods for the range.  Mr. Stevenson asked how many people they would expect to be at the Senior Center every day.  Mrs. Marottek stated average ten in the winter and twenty in the summer. Mr. Stevenson explained that they are looking at a capacity of thirty for the Poplar Senior Center and leaning more towards the commercial kitchen.

It was asked what kind of funding is there for this project.  Commissioner Macdonald stated it would be funded by the Council on Aging budget and they would apply for a grant. The grant has not been awarded yet, and the county has to take steps before applying for a grant.  Commissioner Nygaard mentioned that with the application of the grant, it doesn’t matter what the size of the kitchen is going to be and the site needs to be picked before applying for the grant.  Commissioner Nygaard stated there will be another meeting after the preliminary design and costs are put together.

Mrs. Twitchell stated that she would like a letter of support from the citizens and it doesn’t need to be fancy but to mention what site they would preferred. Mr. Stevenson stated there are three possibly a fourth site.  (Mr.  Halverson explained about the fourth lot.) Mr.  Stevenson stated that site one is just north of the old Mason building.  Mr. Stevenson that site two, that use to have the armory.  Mr. Cooper stated that site two would be an ideal spot because it would be convenient. It’s closer to the bank, grocery stores and church.  Mrs. Marottek and Mr. Kelsey stated they would like the Senior Center on site two also.  Mr.  Stevenson stated that site three, (by the Kirn road) there is a propane tank so that site would be out of the question.  Mr. Stevenson explained that the fourth site he would have to look into first.  Mr. Whitmer stated it would be a neat idea but, who would you get to work there.

Mr. Gudgell explained that the tribes already have meals on wheels which is a type of Senior Center.  Mr. Gudgell explained that the tribes building is approximately about 60 X 80 foot building.  Mrs. Marottek explained that a lot of people go to the tribes because they cook every day and it is free.  Commissioner Macdonald stated that the Wolf Point Senior Center has the same thing as the tribes and the citizen’s still goes to the Senior Center, there is a fee of four dollars.  Commissioner Macdonald stated that the Wolf Point Senior Center has three separate food programs such as; commodities, make and deliver meals.  Commissioner Macdonald stated that the Poplar Senior Center wouldn’t need the commodities program.  Commissioner Macdonald explained that the Poplar Senior Center wouldn’t be just for meals, citizens could use it for meetings and activities.  Commissioner Macdonald stated that the Wolf Point Senior Center rents out the building for a fee of a hundred dollars and the citizen renting would need liability insurance and the Wolf Point Senior Center can’t be rented out after hours, that’s what the Poplar senior center could do also.   Commissioner Macdonald stated that there is a steering committee for this project and if you have any questions you can contact the committee who are; Mertice Marottek, Robert Kelsey and Gary Macdonald.

BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of County Commissioners (the “Board”) of Roosevelt County, Montana (the “County”), as follows:

 

Section 1.  Authorization and Sale; Recitals.

 

1.1.            Authorization and Sale. At an election duly called and held November 4, 2014, the electors of the County authorized this Board to issue and sell up to $11,860,000 principal amount of general obligation bonds of the County for the purpose of paying the costs of designing, constructing, equipping, and furnishing a law enforcement facility, to include converting the existing Roosevelt County Jail into law enforcement offices and building a new and expanded jail as an addition to the remodeled offices that will significantly increase the existing jail space and the number of jail beds; related improvements (the “Project”); and paying costs associated with the sale and issuance of the bonds. The County has determined that it is in its best interests to proceed at this time with the issuance of $9,080,000 in principal amount of bonds (the “Bonds”), which amount is anticipated to cover a portion of the costs of the Project. The County currently anticipates that it will issue under the remaining election authority bonds in the aggregate principal amount of up to $2,780,000 in 2016 to finance a portion of the costs of the Project.

 

Pursuant to such authorization and a resolution adopted August 18, 2015, this Board determined that it would be in the best interests of the County to sell the Bonds through a negotiated sale to D.A. Davidson & Co., of Great Falls, Montana (the “Purchaser”). The District and the Purchaser have entered into a Bond Purchase Agreement, dated October 27, 2015, relating to the sale of the Bonds, the Bonds to bear interest, mature and contain the further terms and conditions set forth in Section 2.1 of this resolution. To the extent any terms of the Bonds as prescribed herein and in the Bond Purchase Agreement conflict, the provisions of this resolution shall govern.

 

1.2.            Recitals. All acts, conditions and things required by the Constitution and laws of the State of Montana, including Montana Code Annotated, Title 76, Chapter 6, Part 1 and Title 7, Chapter 7, Part 22, as amended, in order to make the Bonds valid and binding general obligations in accordance with their terms and in accordance with the terms of this resolution have been done, do exist, have happened and have been performed in regular and due form, time and manner as so required.

 

The indebtedness to be evidenced by the Bonds, together with all other indebtedness of the County, will not exceed 2.50% of the total assessed valuation of taxable

 

property of the County, determined as provided in Section 15-8-111, M.C.A., ascertained by the last assessment for state and county taxes.

Whenever any Bond is surrendered by the registered owner for exchange, the Registrar shall authenticate and deliver one or more new Bonds of a like aggregate principal amount, interest rate and maturity, as requested by the registered owner or the owner’s attorney in writing.

 

(d)             Cancellation. All Bonds surrendered upon any transfer or exchange shall be promptly canceled by the Registrar and thereafter disposed of as directed by the County.

 

(e)             Improper or Unauthorized Transfer. When any Bond is presented to the Registrar for transfer, the Registrar may refuse to transfer the same until it is satisfied that the endorsement on such Bond or separate instrument of transfer is valid and genuine and that the requested transfer is legally authorized. The Registrar shall incur no liability for the refusal, in good faith, to make transfers which it, in its judgment, deems improper or unauthorized.

 

(f)              Persons Deemed Owners. The County and the Registrar may treat the person in whose name any Bond is at any time registered in the bond register as the absolute owner of such Bond, whether such Bond shall be overdue or not, for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, the principal of and interest on such Bond and for all other purposes, and all such payments so made to any such registered owner or upon the owner’s order shall be valid and effectual to satisfy and discharge the liability of the County upon such Bond to the extent of the sum or sums so paid.

 

(g)             Taxes, Fees and Charges. For every transfer or exchange of Bonds, the Registrar may impose a charge upon the owner thereof sufficient to reimburse the Registrar for any tax, fee or other governmental charge required to be paid with respect to such transfer or exchange.

 

(h)             Mutilated, Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Bonds. In case any Bond shall become mutilated or be lost, stolen or destroyed, the Registrar shall deliver a new Bond of like amount, number, maturity date and tenor in exchange and substitution for and upon

 

cancellation of any such mutilated Bond or in lieu of and in substitution for any such Bond lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the payment of the reasonable expenses and charges of the Registrar in connection therewith; and, in the case of a Bond lost, stolen or destroyed, upon filing with the Registrar of evidence satisfactory to it that such Bond was lost, stolen or destroyed, and of the ownership thereof, and upon furnishing to the Registrar of an appropriate bond or indemnity in form, substance and amount satisfactory to it, in which both the County and the Registrar shall be named as obligees.  All Bonds so surrendered to the Registrar shall be canceled by it and evidence of such cancellation shall be given to the County. If the mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed Bond has already matured or such Bond has been called for redemption in accordance with its terms, it shall not be necessary to issue a new Bond prior to payment.

 

2.5.            Appointment of Initial Registrar. The County hereby appoints U.S. Bank National Association, of Salt Lake City, Utah, to act as registrar, transfer agent and paying agent (the “Registrar”). The County reserves the right to appoint a successor bond registrar, transfer agent or paying agent, as authorized by the Model Public Obligations Registration Act of Montana, Montana Code Annotated, Title 17, Chapter 5, Part 11, as amended (the “Registration Act”), but the County agrees to pay the reasonable and customary charges of the Registrar for the services performed.

 

2.6.            Optional Redemption.  Bonds maturing in the years 2016 through 2025 shall not be subject to redemption prior to maturity, but Bonds maturing in the years 2026 through 2035 shall each be subject to redemption at the option of the County, in whole or in part, and if in part from such stated maturities and in such principal amounts as the County may designate in writing to the Registrar (or, if no designation is made, in inverse order of maturities and within a maturity in $5,000 principal amounts selected by the Registrar by lot or other manner it deems fair), on July 1, 2025 and any date thereafter, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof and interest accrued to the redemption date, without premium. The date of redemption and the principal amount of the Bonds shall be fixed by the County Treasurer who shall give notice thereof to the Registrar at least forty-five days prior to the date of redemption. The Registrar shall cause notice of redemption to be published as required by law, and, at least thirty days prior to the designated redemption date, shall cause notice of redemption to be mailed, by first class mail, or by other means required by the securities depository, to the registered owners of each Bond to be redeemed at their addresses as they appear on the bond register described in Section 2.04, but no defect in or failure to give such mailed notice shall affect the validity of proceedings for the redemption of any Bond not affected by such defect or failure. The notice of redemption shall specify the redemption date, redemption price, the numbers, interest rates and CUSIP numbers of the Bonds to be redeemed and the place at which the Bonds are to be surrendered for payment, which is the principal office of the Registrar. Official notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions thereof so to be redeemed shall, on the redemption date, become due and payable at the redemption price therein specified and from and after such date (unless the County shall default in the payment of the redemption price) such Bonds or portions thereof shall cease to bear interest.

 

In addition to the notice prescribed by the preceding paragraph, the Registrar shall also give, or cause to be given, notice of the redemption of any Bond or Bonds or portions

 

thereof at least 35 days before the redemption date by certified mail or telecopy to the Purchaser and all registered securities depositories then in the business of holding substantial amounts of obligations of the character of the Bonds (such depository now being The Depository Trust Company, of New York, New York) and one or more national information services that disseminate information regarding municipal bond redemptions; provided that any defect in or any failure to give any notice of redemption prescribed by this paragraph shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the redemption of any Bond or portion thereof.

 

2.7.            Form. The Bonds shall be drawn in substantially the form set forth in Exhibit A hereto, and by this reference made a part hereof, with such modifications as are permitted by the Act.

 

2.8.            Execution and Delivery. The Bonds shall be forthwith prepared for execution under the direction of the County Clerk and Recorder, and shall be executed on behalf of the County by the signatures of the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, the County Treasurer, and the County Clerk and Recorder, provided that said signatures and the seal may be printed, engraved or lithographed facsimiles thereof. The seal of the County need not be impressed or imprinted on any Bond.  In case any officer whose signature or a facsimile of whose signature shall appear on the Bonds shall cease to be such officer before the delivery thereof, such signature or facsimile shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes, the same as if such officer had remained in office until delivery. When the Bonds have been so executed by said County officers, they shall be registered by the County Treasurer in accordance with Montana Code Annotated, Section 7-7-2257. Notwithstanding such execution, no Bond shall be valid or obligatory for any purpose or be entitled to any security or benefit under this resolution unless and until a certificate of authentication on such Bond has been duly executed by the manual signature of an authorized representative of the Registrar. Certificates of authentication on different Bonds need not be signed by the same representative. The executed certificate of authentication on each Bond shall be conclusive evidence that it has been authenticated and delivered under this resolution. When the Bonds have been fully executed and authenticated, they shall be delivered by the Registrar to the Purchaser upon payment of the purchase price in accordance with the contract of sale heretofore made and executed, and the Purchaser shall not be obligated to see to the application of the purchase price.

 

2.9.            Securities Depository for the Bonds.

 

(a)             For purposes of this Section 2.09, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

 

“Beneficial Owner” shall mean, whenever used with respect to a Bond, the person in whose name such Bond is recorded as the beneficial owner of such Bond by a Participant on the records of such Participant, or such person’s subrogee.

 

“Cede & Co.” shall mean Cede & Co., the nominee of DTC, and any successor nominee of DTC with respect to the Bonds.

 

“DTC” shall mean The Depository Trust Company of New York, New York.

 

“Participant” shall mean any broker-dealer, bank or other financial institution for which DTC holds Bonds as securities depository.

 

“Representation Letter” shall mean the Blanket Issuer Letter of Representations from the County to DTC, attached to this resolution as Exhibit B, which is hereby incorporated by reference and made a part hereof.

 

(b)             The Bonds shall be initially issued as separately authenticated fully registered Bonds, and one Bond shall be issued in the principal amount of each stated maturity of the Bonds. Upon initial issuance, the ownership of such Bonds shall be registered in the Bond register in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of DTC. The Registrar and the County may treat DTC (or its nominee) as the sole and exclusive owner of the Bonds registered in its name for the purposes of payment of the principal of or interest on the Bonds, selecting the Bonds or portions thereof to be redeemed, if any, giving any notice permitted or required to be given to registered owners of Bonds under this Resolution, registering the transfer of Bonds, and for all other purposes whatsoever; and neither the Registrar nor the County shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. Neither the Registrar nor the County shall have any responsibility or obligation to any Participant, any Person claiming a beneficial ownership interest in the Bonds under or through DTC or any Participant, or any other Person which is not shown on the Bond register as being a registered owner of any Bonds, with respect to the accuracy of any records maintained by DTC or any Participant, with respect to the payment by DTC or any Participant of any amount with respect to the principal of or interest on the Bonds, with respect to any notice which is permitted or required to be given to owners of Bonds under this Resolution, with respect to the selection by DTC or any Participant of any person to receive payment in the event of a partial redemption of the Bonds, or with respect to any consent given or other action taken by DTC as registered owner of the Bonds. So long as any Bond is registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of DTC, the Registrar shall pay all principal of and interest on such Bond, and shall give all notices with respect to such Bond, only to Cede & Co. in accordance with the Representation Letter, and all such payments shall be valid and effective to fully satisfy and discharge the County’s obligations with respect to the principal of and interest on the Bonds to the extent of the sum or sums so paid. No Person other than DTC shall receive an authenticated Bond for each separate stated maturity evidencing the obligation of the County to make payments of principal and interest. Upon delivery by DTC to the Registrar of written notice to the effect that DTC has determined to substitute a new nominee in place of Cede & Co., the Bonds will be transferable to such new nominee in accordance with paragraph (e) hereof.

 

(c)             In the event the County determines that it is in the best interest of the Beneficial Owners that they be able to obtain Bonds in the form of Bond certificates, the County may notify DTC and the Registrar, whereupon DTC shall notify the Participants of the availability through DTC of Bonds in the form of certificates. In such event, the Bonds will be transferable in accordance with paragraph (e) hereof. DTC may determine to discontinue providing its services with respect to the Bonds at any time by giving notice to the County and the Registrar and discharging its responsibilities with respect

 

thereto under applicable law. In such event the Bonds will be transferable in accordance with paragraph (e) hereof.

 

(d)             The Representation Letter sets forth certain matters with respect to, among other things, notices, consents and approvals by registered owners of the Bonds and Beneficial Owners and payments on the Bonds. The Registrar shall have the same rights with respect to its actions thereunder as it has with respect to its actions under this resolution.

 

(e)             In the event that any transfer or exchange of Bonds is permitted under paragraph (b) or (c) hereof, such transfer or exchange shall be accomplished upon receipt by the Registrar of the Bonds to be transferred or exchanged and appropriate instruments of transfer to the permitted transferee in accordance with the provisions of this resolution. In the event Bonds in the form of certificates are issued to owners other than Cede & Co., its successor as nominee for DTC as owner of all the Bonds, or another securities depository as owner of all the Bonds, the provisions of this Resolution shall also apply to all matters relating thereto, including, without limitation, the printing of such Bonds in the form of Bond certificates and the method of payment of principal of and interest on such Bonds in the form of Bond certificates.

 

Section 3.  Security Provisions.

 

3.1.            Construction Account; Use of Proceeds. There is hereby created a special account designated as the “2015 Construction Account” (the “Construction Account”), to be held by the County Treasurer of the County separate and apart from all other funds of the County. The County will appropriate to the Construction Account (a) the proceeds of the sale of the Bonds in the amount of $9,080,000 plus original issue premium remaining after payment of underwriter’s compensation and (b) all income derived from the investment of amounts on hand in the Construction Account. The Construction Account shall be used solely to defray expenses of the Project and to pay costs of issuance associated with the sale and issuance of the Bonds, and may, if necessary, be used for the transfer to the Debt Service Account described in Section

3.02 of amounts sufficient for the payment of interest and principal, if any, due upon the Bonds prior to the completion and payment of all costs of the Project. Upon completion and payment of all costs of the Project, any remaining proceeds of Bonds in the Construction Account shall be credited and paid to the Debt Service Account.

 

3.2.            Debt Service Account. So long as any of the Bonds are outstanding and any principal thereof or interest thereon unpaid, the County Treasurer shall maintain a separate and special 2015 Debt Service Account (the “Debt Service Account”) to be used for no purpose other than the payment of the principal of and interest on the Bonds. The County irrevocably appropriates to the Debt Service Account: (a) all funds to be credited and paid thereto in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01, (b) any taxes levied in accordance with this resolution, (c) all income derived from the investment of amounts on hand in the Debt Service Account, and (d) such other money as shall be received and appropriated to the Debt Service Account from time to time.

 

Section 4.  Tax Levies.  The full faith, credit and taxing powers of the County shall be and are hereby irrevocably pledged to the payment of the Bonds and interest due thereon, and the County shall cause taxes to be levied annually on all taxable property in the County, without limitation as to rate or amount, sufficient to pay the interest on the Bonds when it falls due and to pay and discharge the principal at maturity of each and all of the Bonds as they respectively become due.

 

Section 5.  Arbitrage and Certification of Proceedings.

 

5.1.            Certification. The Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, the County Treasurer, and the County Clerk and Recorder, being among the officers of the County charged with the responsibility for issuing the Bonds, are authorized and directed to execute and deliver to the Purchaser a certification in accordance with the provisions of Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and the Treasury Regulations, Section 1.148-2(b), stating the facts, estimates and circumstances in existence on the date of issue and delivery of the Bonds which make it reasonable to expect that the proceeds of the Bonds will not be used in a manner that would cause the Bonds to be “arbitrage bonds” within the meaning of Section 148 of the Code and applicable Treasury Regulations.  The certification shall further state that to the best of the knowledge and belief of the certifying officers no other facts, estimates or circumstances exist which would materially change this expectation.

 

5.2.            Covenant. The County covenants and agrees with the holders from time to time of the Bonds that it will not take or permit to be taken by any of its officers, employees or agents any action that would cause the interest on the Bonds to become subject to taxation under the provisions of the Code and the Treasury Regulations applicable thereunder, and covenants and agrees that it will take or cause its officers, employees or agents to take any action within its or their powers to prevent the interest on the Bonds from becoming includable in gross income for purposes of federal income taxation under the Code and applicable Treasury Regulations.

 

5.3.            Arbitrage Rebate. The County acknowledges that the Bonds are subject to the rebate requirements of Section 148(f) of the Code. The County covenants and agrees to retain such records, make such determinations, file such reports and documents and pay such amounts at such times as are required under said Section 148(f) and applicable Treasury Regulations to preserve the exclusion of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes, unless the Bonds qualify for the exception from the rebate requirement under Section 148(f)(4)(B) of the Code and no “gross proceeds” of the Bonds (other than amounts constituting a “bona fide debt service fund”) arise during or after the expenditure of the original proceeds thereof. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Chair, the County Treasurer, and the County Clerk and Recorder are hereby authorized and directed to execute a Rebate Certificate, substantially in the form to be prepared by Bond Counsel, and the County hereby covenants and agrees to observe and perform the covenants and agreements contained therein, unless amended or terminated in accordance with the provisions thereof.

 

5.4.            Designation as Qualified Tax-Exempt Obligations. Pursuant to Section 265(b)(3)(B)(ii) of the Code, the County hereby designates the Bonds as “qualified tax-exempt obligations” for the purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code. The County has not designated

 

any bonds in 2015 under Section 265(b)(3) other than the Bonds. The County hereby represents that it does not anticipate that the County and all “subordinate entities” of the County will issue in 2015 obligations bearing interest exempt from federal income taxation under Section 103 of the Code (including “qualified 502(c)(3) bonds” but excluding other “private activity bonds,” as defined in Sections 141(a) and 145(a) of the Code) in an amount greater than $10,000,000.

 

5.5.            Information Reporting. The County shall file with the Secretary of the Treasury, not later than February 15, 2016, a statement concerning the Bonds containing the information required by Section 149(e) of the Code.

 

Section 6. Defeasance.

 

6.1.            General. When the liability of the County on all Bonds issued under and secured by this Resolution and all interest thereon has been discharged as provided in this section, all pledges, covenants and other rights granted by this Resolution to the Holders of such Bonds shall cease.

 

6.2.            Maturity. The County may discharge its liability with reference to all Bonds and interest thereon which are due on any date by depositing with the Registrar for such Bonds on or before the date a sum sufficient for the payment thereof in full; or if any Bond or interest thereon shall not be paid when due, the County may nevertheless discharge its liability with reference thereto by depositing with the Registrar a sum sufficient for the payment thereof in full with interest accrued to the date of such deposit.

 

6.3.            Redemption. The County may also discharge its liability with reference to any prepayable Bonds which are called for redemption on any date in accordance with their terms, by depositing with the Registrar on or before that date an amount equal to the principal, interest and redemption premium, if any, which are then due thereon, provided that notice of such redemption has been duly given as provided in this Resolution.

 

6.4.            Escrow. The County may also at any time discharge its liability in its entirety with reference to any Bonds subject to the provisions of law now or hereafter authorizing and regulating such action, by depositing irrevocably in escrow, with a bank qualified by law as an escrow agent for this purpose, cash or securities that are general obligations of the United States or securities of United States agencies that are authorized by law to be so deposited, bearing interest payable at such times and at such rates and maturing on such dates as shall be required, without reinvestment, to provide funds sufficient to pay all principal, interest and redemption premiums, if any, to become due on such Bonds at their stated maturities or, if such Bonds are prepayable and notice of redemption thereof has been given or irrevocably provided for, to such earlier redemption date.

 

Section 7.  Continuing Disclosure.

 

(a)             Purpose and Beneficiaries. To provide for the public availability of certain information relating to the Bonds and the security therefor and to permit participating underwriters in the primary offering of the Bonds to comply with paragraph (b)(5) of Rule 15c2-

 

12 promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Rule”), the County hereby makes the following covenants and agrees, for the benefit of the Owners (as hereinafter defined) from time to time of the outstanding Bonds, to provide annual reports of specified information and notice of the occurrence of certain events to the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (“MSRB”) through its Electronic Municipal Market Access system website (“EMMA”), as hereinafter described (the “Disclosure Covenants”). The County is the only “obligated person” in respect of the Bonds within the meaning of the Rule for purposes of identifying the entities in respect of which continuing disclosure must be made.

 

If the County fails to comply with the Disclosure Covenants, any person aggrieved thereby, including the Owners of any outstanding Bonds, may take whatever action at law or in equity may appear necessary or appropriate to enforce performance and observance of the Disclosure Covenants, including an action for a writ of mandamus or specific performance. Direct, indirect, consequential and punitive damages shall not be recoverable for any default hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Disclosure Covenants, in no event shall a default under this Section 7 constitute a default under the Bonds or under any other provision of this Resolution.

 

As used in this Section 7, “Owner” means, in respect of a Bond, the registered owner or owners thereof appearing in the bond register maintained by the Registrar or any Beneficial Owner (as hereinafter defined) thereof, if such Beneficial Owner provides to the Registrar evidence of such beneficial ownership in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Registrar. As used in this Section 7, “Beneficial Owner” means, in respect of a Bond, any person or entity that (i) has the power, directly or indirectly, to vote or consent with respect to, or to dispose of ownership of, such Bond (including persons or entities holding Bonds through nominees, depositories or other intermediaries), or (ii) is treated as the owner of the Bond for federal income tax purposes.

 

(b)             Information To Be Disclosed. The County will provide, in the manner set forth in subsection (c) hereof, either directly or indirectly through an agent designated by the County, the following information at the following times:

 

(1)             except as expressly provided otherwise in subsection (b)(2) below, on or before March 31 (or the next succeeding business day if that day is not a business day) after the end of each fiscal year of the County, commencing with the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, the following financial information and operating data in respect of the County most recently complied by the County on a customary basis and publicly available under applicable data privacy or other law (the “Disclosure Information”):

 

(A)            the audited financial statements of the County for such fiscal year, or, if unavailable, updated operating results for the County for the then most recent completed fiscal year (and submitting audited financials when available), similar to the format shown in Appendix A to the Official Statement related to the Bonds (the “Official Statement”); and

 

(B)            updated figures for the County for the then most recent completed fiscal year (commencing with the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016), to include:

 

(1)             general obligation bonds outstanding;

 

(2)             general obligation debt capacity;

 

(3)             assessed/market valuation and taxable valuation;

 

(4)             estimated County population;

 

(5)             tax collection figures for the then most recent completed fiscal year in format similar to the table in the Official Statement under the heading “Tax Collections;”

 

(2)             Because the Official Statement contains all of the information described above under subsection (b)(2) (some of which is unaudited) and contains the unaudited financial statements for fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, the County will provide only the audited financial statements for fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, on or before March 31, 2016 (or the next succeeding business day if that day is not a business day) or within 10 days of the receipt thereof if received after March 31, 2016.

 

Notwithstanding anything in this Section 7, if the audited financial statements are not available by the date specified, the County shall provide on or before such date unaudited financial statements in the format required for the audited financial statements as part of the Disclosure Information and, within ten days after the receipt thereof, the County shall provide the audited financial statements.

 

Any or all of the Disclosure Information may be incorporated, if it is updated as required hereby, by reference from other documents, including official statements, which have been submitted to the MSRB in the manner set forth in subsection (c) hereof. The County shall clearly identify in the Disclosure Information in each document so incorporated by reference.

 

If any part of the Disclosure Information can no longer be generated because the operations of the County have materially changed or been discontinued, such Disclosure Information need no longer be provided if the County includes in the Disclosure Information a statement to such effect; provided, however, if such operations have been replaced by other County operations in respect of which data is not included in the Disclosure Information and the County determines that certain specified data regarding such replacement operations would be material (as hereinafter defined), then, from and after such determination, the Disclosure Information shall include such additional specified data regarding the replacement operations.

 

If the Disclosure Information is changed or the Disclosure Covenants are amended, then the County shall include in the next Disclosure Information to be delivered pursuant to this Section 7, to the extent necessary, an explanation of the reasons

 

for the amendment and the effect of any change in the type of financial information or operating data provided.

 

(3)             In a timely manner not in excess of ten business days, notice of the occurrence of any of the following events:

 

(A)            principal and interest payment delinquencies;

(B)            non-payment related defaults, if material;

(C)            unscheduled draws on debt service reserves reflecting financial difficulties;

(D)            unscheduled draws on credit enhancements reflecting financial difficulties;

(E)            substitution of credit or liquidity providers, or their failure to perform;

(F)             adverse tax opinions, the issuance by the Internal Revenue Service of proposed or final determinations of taxability, Notices of Proposed Issue (IRS Form 5701-TEB), or other material notices or determinations with respect to the tax status of the Bonds or other material events affecting the tax status of the Bonds;

(G)            modifications to rights of holders of the Bonds, if material;

(H)            bond calls, if material, and tender offers;

(I)              defeasances;

(L)             bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, or similar event of the obligated person;

(M)           the consummation of a merger, consolidation, or acquisition involving the County or the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the County, other than in the ordinary course of business, the entry into a definitive agreement to undertake such an action or the termination of a definitive agreement relating to any such actions, other than pursuant to its terms, if material; and

(N)            appointment of a successor or additional trustee or the change of name of a trustee, if material.

 

An event is “material” if it is an event as to which a substantial likelihood exists that a reasonably prudent investor would attach importance thereto in deciding to buy, hold or sell a Bond or, if not disclosed, would significantly alter the total information otherwise available to an investor from the Official Statement, information disclosed in this Bond Resolution or information generally available to the public. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, an event is also “material” if it is an event that would be deemed material for purposes of the purchase, holding or sale of a Bond within the meaning of applicable federal securities laws, as interpreted at the time of discovery of the occurrence of the event.

 

(4)             In a timely manner, notice of the occurrence of any of the following events or conditions:

 

(A)            the failure of the County to provide the Disclosure Information described above at the time specified thereunder;

 

(B)            the amendment or supplementing of the Disclosure Covenants, together with a copy of such amendment or supplement and any explanation provided by the County;

 

(C)            the termination of the obligations of the County under the Disclosure Covenants; and

 

(D)            any change in the fiscal year of the County.

 

(c)             Manner of Disclosure. The County agrees to make available the information described in subsection (b) hereof to the MSRB via EMMA or in a manner as may be otherwise proscribed by the MSRB consistent with the Rule. All documents provided to the MSRB shall be accompanied by identifying information as prescribed by the MSRB.

 

(d)             Term; Amendments; Interpretation.

 

(1)             The Disclosure Covenants shall remain in effect so long as any Bonds are outstanding.

 

(2)             The Disclosure Covenants (and the form and requirements of the Disclosure Information) may be amended or supplemented by the County from time to time, without notice to (except as provided in paragraph (b)(3) hereof) or the consent of the Owners of any Bonds, by a resolution of this Commission filed in the office of the recording officer of the County accompanied by an opinion of Bond Counsel, who may rely on certificates of the County and others and the opinion may be subject to customary qualifications, to the effect that such amendment or supplement (A) is made in connection with a change in circumstances that arises from a change in law or regulation or a change in the identity, nature or status of the County or the type of operations conducted by the County, or (B) is required by, or better complies with, the provisions of paragraph (b)(5) of the Rule, assuming that such provisions apply to the Bonds.

 

If the Disclosure Information is so amended, the County agrees to provide, contemporaneously with the effectiveness of such amendment, an explanation of the reasons for the amendment and the effect, if any, of the change in the type of financial information or operating data being provided hereunder.

 

(3)             The Disclosure Covenants are entered into to comply with the continuing disclosure provisions of the Rule and should be construed so the undertaking would satisfy the requirements of paragraph (b)(5) of the Rule.

 

Section 8. Certification of Proceedings. The officers of the County are hereby authorized and directed to prepare and furnish to the Original Purchaser and to Dorsey & Whitney LLP, Bond Counsel, certified copies of all proceedings and records of the County, and such other affidavits, certificates and information as may be required to show the facts relating to the legality and marketability of the Bonds as the same appear from the books and records under their custody and control or as otherwise known to them, and all such certified copies, certificates and affidavits, including any heretofore furnished, shall be deemed representations of the County as to the facts recited therein.

ROOSEVELT COUNTY, MONTANA (the “County”) acknowledges itself to be indebted and for value received hereby promises to pay to the registered owner named above, or registered assigns, the principal amount specified above on the maturity date specified above or, if this Bond is prepayable as stated herein, on any date prior thereto on which this Bond shall have been duly called for redemption, and to pay interest on said principal amount to the registered owner hereof from November 5, 2015 or from such later date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for until this Bond is paid or, if this Bond is prepayable, until it has been duly called for redemption, at the rate specified above. Principal of this Bond is payable upon presentation and surrender hereof to U.S. Bank National Association, as Bond Registrar, Transfer Agent and Paying Agent, at its operations center in St. Paul, Minnesota, or its successor designated under the Resolution, as hereinafter defined (the “Registrar”). Interest on this Bond is payable semiannually on each January 1 and July 1, commencing on July 1, 2016, by check or draft mailed by the Registrar to the person in whose name this Bond is registered as of the close of business on the 15th day (whether or not a Business Day) of the immediately preceding month, at the address of such person as it appears on the bond register maintained by the Registrar. “Business Day” means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday of the State of Montana. Interest is calculated on the basis of a 360-day year composed of twelve 30- day months.

 

The principal of and interest on this Bond are payable in lawful money of the United States of America. For the prompt and full payment of such principal and interest as the same respectively become due, the full faith, credit and taxing powers of the County have been and are hereby irrevocably pledged.

 

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Bond, so long as this Bond is registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of The Depository Trust Company, or in the name of any other nominee of The Depository Trust Company or other securities depository, the Registrar shall pay all principal of and interest on this Bond, and shall give all notices with respect to this Bond, only to Cede & Co. or other nominee in accordance with the operational arrangements of The Depository Trust Company or other securities depository as agreed to by the County.

 

This Bond is one of an issue in the total principal amount of $9,080,000 (the “Bonds”), all of like date of original issue and tenor except as to serial number, denomination, maturity date, interest rate and redemption privilege, all authorized by the favorable vote of more than the requisite majority of the qualified electors of the County voting on the question of the issuance thereof at an election duly held, for the purpose of paying the costs of designing, constructing, equipping, and furnishing a law enforcement facility, to include converting the existing Roosevelt County Jail into law enforcement offices and building a new and expanded jail as an addition to the remodeled offices that will significantly increase the existing jail space and the number of jail beds; related improvements; and of paying costs associated with the sale and issuance of the Bonds, all pursuant to resolutions duly adopted by the Board of County Commissioners, including Resolution No. 2016-6 adopted on October 27, 2015 (the “Resolution”), and in full conformity with the Constitution and laws of the State of Montana thereunto enabling.  The Bonds are issuable only as fully registered Bonds of single  maturities, in denominations of $5,000 or any integral multiple thereof.

 

The Bonds maturing in the years 2016 through 2025 are payable on their respective stated maturity dates without option of prior payment, but Bonds having stated maturity dates in the years 2026 through 2035 are each subject to redemption at the option of the County, in whole or in part, and if in part from such stated maturities and in such principal amounts as the County may designate in writing to the Registrar (or, if no designation is made, in inverse order of maturities and within a maturity in $5,000 principal amounts selected by the Registrar by lot or other manner it deems fair), on July 1, 2025 and any date thereafter, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof to be redeemed plus interest accrued to the redemption date, without premium. The date of redemption and the principal amount of the Bonds shall be fixed by the County Treasurer who shall give notice thereof to the Registrar at least forty-five days prior to the date of redemption. The Registrar shall cause notice of redemption to be published as required by law, and, at least thirty days prior to the designated redemption date, shall cause notice of redemption to be mailed, by first class mail, or by other means required by the securities depository, to the registered owners of each Bond to be redeemed at their addresses as they appear on the bond register. Upon partial redemption of any Bond, a new Bond or Bonds will be delivered to the registered owner without charge, representing the remaining principal amount outstanding.

 

As provided in the Resolution and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, this Bond is transferable upon the books of the County in the principal office of the Registrar, by the registered owner hereof in person or by his attorney duly authorized in writing, upon surrender hereof together with a written instrument of transfer satisfactory to the Registrar, duly executed by the registered owner or his attorney, and may also be surrendered in exchange for

 

Bonds of other authorized denominations. Upon any such transfer or exchange, the County will cause a new Bond or Bonds to be issued in the name of the transferee or registered owner, of the same aggregate principal amount, bearing interest at the same rate and maturing on the same date, subject to reimbursement for any tax, fee or governmental charge required to be paid with respect to such transfer or exchange.

 

The County and the Registrar may deem and treat the person in whose name this Bond is registered as the absolute owner hereof, whether this Bond is overdue or not, for the purpose of receiving payment and for all other purposes, and neither the County nor the Registrar shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

 

This Bond has been designated by the Borrower as a “qualified tax-exempt obligation” pursuant to Section 265 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

 

IT IS HEREBY CERTIFIED, RECITED, COVENANTED AND AGREED   that

all acts, conditions and things required by the Constitution and laws of the State of Montana to be done, to exist, to happen and to be performed precedent to and in the issuance of this Bond, in order to make it a valid and binding general obligation of the County according to its terms, have been done, do exist, have happened and have been performed in regular and due form, time and manner as so required; that the Board of County Commissioners will annually levy  an ad valorem tax on all of the taxable property in the County sufficient to pay the interest hereon when it falls due and also to pay and discharge the principal of this Bond at maturity; and that this Bond, together with all other indebtedness of the County outstanding on the date of original issue hereof and on the date of the delivery of the Bonds of this issue to the original purchaser thereof, does not exceed any constitutional or statutory limitation of indebtedness.

 

This Bond shall not be valid or become obligatory for any purpose or be  entitled to any security or benefit under the Resolution until the Certificate of Authentication hereon shall have been executed by the Registrar by the manual signature of one of its authorized representatives.
