Harold’s Blog: Bond Referendums, Lyman Collins and More

Cary, NC – This week was a little busier than last week.

Monday – General Obligation Bonds

Monday I joined the town manager, the chief financial officer, the deputy town clerk, the bond attorney, and a representative of the bank to sign legal documents for the sale of the last portion of the 2012 General Obligation bonds.

The interest rates will be almost nothing since it is just barely above inflation.
