This Ordinance authorizes the issuance of a general obligation refunding note designated as Series 2020B in the approximate principal amount of $1,472,500 (the “Note”) by the County of McCracken, Kentucky (the “County”). The Note is to be issued for the purpose of assisting the City of Paducah, Kentucky (the “City”) in the refunding the City’s outstanding General Obligation Refunding Bonds, Series 2010B (the “Prior Bonds”) maturing on or after June 1, 2021, the proceeds of which were used to refund the City’s General Obligation Bonds, Series of 2001 (Convention and Arts Center Projects), the proceeds of which were used to finance the costs of an expansion of the Julian Carroll Convention Center and to construct the Four Rivers Center for the Performing Arts (collectively, the “Project”). The Note will be issued in an aggregate principal amount equal to 50% of the aggregate principal amount of the refunding bonds to be issued by the City. The Ordinance further authorizes the execution and delivery by the County of an Amended and Restated Interlocal Cooperation Agreement (the “Interlocal Amendment”) by and among the County, the City, the Paducah-McCracken County Convention Center Corporation, the Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the McCracken County Sports Tourism Commission. Pursuant to the Ordinance and the Interlocal Agreement, certain transient room taxes to be received from the Bureau and the payments by the County under the Note will be pledged as additional security for the Bonds. Provisions are made in the Ordinance for the payment of the Note and the security therefor; for the application of the proceeds of the Note; for the establishment of a Note Payment Fund; for the maintenance of the previously established sinking fund; for certain covenants of the County with respect to the Note and for the execution of such additional instruments as shall be necessary to accomplish the plan of refunding. The Note shall mature in varying amounts on June 1st of each of the years 2021 through 2026. The Note pledges the full faith and credit of the County and provision is made for the collection of a tax to pay the principal of, and interest on the Note, subject to certain credits, as provided in the Ordinance and the Interlocal Agreement. As required by KRS 83A.060, the following Section 8 of the Ordinance is set forth in its entirety:

Section 8.     General Obligation; Maintenance of Sinking Fund. The Refunding Note shall be a full general obligation of the County and, for the payment of the Refunding Note and the interest thereon, the full faith, credit, and taxing power of the County are hereby pledged for the prompt payment thereof. During the period the Refunding Note is outstanding, there shall be and there hereby is levied on all the taxable property in the County, in addition to all other taxes, without limitation as to rate, a direct tax annually in an amount sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the Notes when and as due, it being hereby found and determined that current tax rates are within all applicable limitations. The tax shall be and is hereby ordered computed, certified, levied, and extended upon the tax duplicate and collected by the same officers in the same manner and at the same time that taxes for general purposes for each of the years are certified, extended and collected. The tax shall be placed before and in preference to all other items and for the full amount thereof provided, however, that in each year to the extent that the other lawfully available funds of the County, including amounts available therefore pursuant to the Interlocal Agreement, are available for the payment of the Refunding Note and are appropriated for such purpose, the amount of such direct tax upon all of the taxable property in the County shall be reduced by the amount of such other funds so available and appropriated.

Pursuant to an ordinance adopted on May 21, 2001, there has heretofore been established with the County a sinking fund (the “Sinking Fund”), which is hereby ordered to be maintained and continued as long as the Refunding Notes shall remain outstanding and unpaid. The funds derived from the tax levy hereby required or other lawfully available funds shall be placed in the Sinking Fund and, together with interest collected on the same, are irrevocably pledged for the payment of the interest on and principal of all bonds and notes issued under the General Obligation Act and Tax-Supported Leases, as defined in the General Obligation Act, when and as the same fall due. Amounts shall be transferred from the Sinking Fund to the Bonds Payment Fund at the times and in the amounts required by Section 7 hereof.”
