The proposed lease with respect to the Project will have a term no longer than fifteen (15) years, commencing on the date of issuance of the Bonds.  The estimated interest rates that will be paid in connection with the Bonds are between 1% and 5% per annum, and the total estimated interest cost associated therewith is $1,992,263.  The maximum annual lease rental to be paid by the County under the proposed lease is $780,000, and the maximum lease rental over the term of the lease is $8,250,000.  The County’s current debt service levy is $592,000, and its current debt service rate is $.0455 per $100 of assessed valuation.  Over the term of the proposed lease, the estimated increase to the debt service fund tax levy for the County is estimated to be $780,000 (occurring in 2018 pay 2019), and the estimated increase to the debt service fund tax rate for the County after the issuance of the Bonds will be $.06 per $100 of assessed value (occurring in 2018 pay 2019).

The Brown County Board of Elections, acting through the Brown County Circuit Court Clerk, will issue the petition and remonstrance forms upon request by any owner of real property within the County or any registered voter residing in the County.  The Brown County Board of Elections, acting through the Brown County Circuit Court Clerk, may not issue a petition or remonstrance form earlier than August 9, 2013, which is twenty-nine (29) days after this notice is given.
