Board considers refinancing of bonds

“This is a great time to go to market,” Wes Hall with Public Financial Management Group said, when he addressed the school board during the operations meeting May 1.

The Salisbury Township School Board is examining refinancing two existing bonds; 2012A and 2012B, with outstanding principal balances of $5.3 million and $4.2 million respectively.

Hall said though the market had been volatile, rates have rebounded and “interest rates are at the lowest point for rates since the election.”
