Spicer officials OK move to save $77K over next decade by re-financing bond


SPICER - Refinancing a 2006 street improvement bond will save the city of Spicer $77,000 over the next decade.

At their meeting Tuesday, the city council approved the refinancing, which will replace the initial interest rate of 4.6 percent with a new average interest rate of about 2 percent.

City Administrator Leslie Valiant said the city will see net savings of 5.3 percent in interest payments for the $1.49 million bond, which was initially issued four years ago.
