HUSD bond refinance saves over $1.55 million in local property taxes.
December 4, 2014 — Healdsburg Unified School District refinanced outstanding general obligation bonds that will save local property owners $1.55 million in property taxes. The HUSD School Board authorized the refinance to take advantage of current low interest rates at their September 17, 2014 meeting. The original bonds, totaling $25,545,000, were authorized by more than 55% of voters during the November 2002 election. These funds allowed for the renovation, construction, and modernization of classrooms and facilities at all Healdsburg public schools.
“We were able to leverage HUSD's favorable credit rating, sound fiscal practices, and the low interest rate marketplace to reduce property taxes for Healdsburg residents," said Jeff Harding, HUSD Superintendent. "This refinance reduces the District's debt obligations and generates savings for our community."
“We know that our community supports our schools,” said Judy Velasquez, Board of Trustees President. “As stewards of Healdsburg taxpayer dollars, we felt this bond refinance maintains our commitment to wise financial management.”
The interest rates for the new bonds, issued in October 2014, will be between 2.79% and 3.71%, a significant decrease from the previous rate of 3.10% to 5.10%. The rate reduction translates to a savings of $1,556,612 for Healdsburg property owners.
