County Administrator’s Report

Ms. Jones introduced Ms. Ann Walls, an accountant with Robinson Farmer Cox & Associates, who provided the County’s annual audit report to the Board. (A copy of the report is retained in the February 17, 2005 Board packet).



Qualified Zone Academy Bonds

Ms. Jones advised the Board that Qualified Zone Academy Bonds are taxable bonds issued by a state or local government and the proceeds are used to improve certain eligible public schools. The Qualified Zone Academy Bond initiative is a federal

Page 5: Minutes of the February 17, 2005 meeting of the Sussex County

Board of Supervisors


program that allows lending institutions and schools to form a mutually beneficial partnership to support education. Qualified Zone Academy Bonds can be used for: rehabilitating or repairing eligible public school facilities, providing equipment for use at an academy, developing course materials for education to be provided at an academy, for training teachers and other school personnel in an academy. The QZAB Program allows a bank or other lending institution to purchase a special no interest bond on behalf of a school. The lending institution may then claim the interest they would have earned on that loan as a federal tax credit.
The Office of the Secretary of Education was authorized to approve $6,462,000 of QZAB bonds for calendar year 2003 and $7,683,000 for calendar year 2004. State law as well as federal regulations mandate that all allocations be used at schools that are either located in a federal enterprise community or where 35 percent or more of the students are eligible for free lunch. Dr. Harris was notified by letter of the availability of $2,174,571 in interest free Qualified Zone Academy Bonds for the Sussex County School System. This represents the amount of $1,077,000 that was not used in calendar year 2003 and $1,097,571 for 2004. Bonds from the 2003 allocation must be issued by December 31, 2005. Bonds from the 2004 allocation must be issued by December 31, 2006. Informally the County has been told that an additional allocation of $1.1 million will be available for 2005. The three years would total the amount of approximately $3.3 million in interest free monies available to Sussex County.
Dr. Harris, Mr. Whitaker and I have met and discussed the availability of these funds and the requirements for securing them. There will be a need to employ a bond counsel and financial advisor. These costs can be paid out of the bond issue. The project that has been identified is the Sussex Middle School Project. These funds cannot be used to pay off existing debt for a project, therefore the repayment of the SunTrust loan is not an eligible item. However, Sussex County has expenses for the Sussex Middle School project and these funds can be used for that purpose. Dr. Harris will present this proposal to his Board prior to your meeting.
The County’s IDA can issue these bonds. There is a 10% private contribution match that is a primary requirement for the issuance of these Qualified Zone Academy Bonds. There is a private entity that is interested in being part of an issuance for Sussex County.
Staff recommends pursuing these funds for the School System. Dr. Harris has returned the required letter of intent indicating that Sussex County is interested. A project has been identified. The IDA can be the bond issuing authority.
Staff asks for authorization to prepare the necessary application package, procure the required bond counsel and financial advisor.
Staff also requests adoption of the enclosed reimbursement resolution by the Board of Supervisors.

Board of Supervisors
ON MOTION OF SUPERVISOR HARRELL, seconded by SUPERVISOR FLY and carried: RESOLVED that the County of Sussex, Virginia (“Sussex County”), and Sussex County Public Schools have undertaken a project making additions to and renovating of Sussex Central Middle School (the “Project”) and have been financing the costs of the Project with a combination of the proceeds of a bond anticipation note sold to SunTrust Bank (the “Note”), which Note is intended to be refunded by a loan from the Literary Fund, and appropriations from the general fund of Sussex County (the “General Fund Moneys”).
This Board of Supervisors of Sussex County (this “Board”) has been advised that (1) a portion of the costs of the Project may be eligible for financing with Qualified Zone Academy Bonds (“QZABs”) described in Section 139E of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Tax Code”), to be issued by Sussex County or a governmental conduit issuer acting for Sussex County’s benefit (such as the Industrial Development Authority of Sussex County), (ii) QZABs present a uniquely attractive financing opportunity to Sussex County and Sussex County Public Schools and (iii) although the proceeds of QZABs could be used to reimburse certain expenditures made from the General Fund Moneys prior to the issuance of QZABs (“Expenditures”).
The Board has also been advised that federal tax requires the Board to adopt a resolution in the form set forth below to (i) preserve Sussex County’s ability to use proceeds of QZABs to reimburse itself for Expenditures and (ii) facilitate the satisfaction of one of the requirements for a valid issuance of QZABs, namely the private business contribution requirement; now therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of the County of Sussex, Virginia:


  1. If Sussex County and the Sussex County Public Schools can satisfy the requirements of Section 1397E of the Tax Code and issuance of QZABs is determined by this Board to be in the best interest of Sussex County, Sussex County expects to finance the portion of the Project that will not be financed by the Note through the issuance of QZABs in the maximum principal amount of $3,300,000.

  2. This Resolution represents a declaration of “official intent” for purposes of Treasury Regulations Sections 1.150-2 and 1.1397E-1.

  3. Sussex County reasonably expects to reimburse the Expenditures made prior to the issuance of QZABs with the proceeds of QZABs and the adoption of this Resolution is consistent with the budgetary and financial circumstances of Sussex County.

  4. This Resolution is also intended to reflect the official intent of this Board that any qualified contributions received by Sussex County or Sussex County Public Schools prior to the issuance of any of the above described

Page 7: Minutes of the February 17, 2005 meeting of the Sussex County

Board of Supervisors


QZABs with respect to a qualified zone academy to be established by the School Board of Sussex County to include Sussex Central Middle School (or an academic program within Sussex Central Middle School), to have a nexus to the to the QZABs and may be counted to the extent permitted by Section 1397E of the Tax Code towards satisfying the private business contribution requirement for the QZABs. “Qualified contributions,” “qualified zone academy” and private business contribution requirement” have the respective meanings set forth in Section 1397E of the Tax Code.

  1. This resolution shall be in effect from and after its adoption.
