Green Bond Program

The City began its Green Bond financing program in 2015 to fund its annual capital improvement and maintenance projects for the Sanitary and Storm Sewer Utility. The capital projects funded by these Green bonds reduce the amount of untreated sewage and storm water that enter the environment and reduce the amount of clean water entering the treatment system.

The first Green Bond report was published in May of 2016 and the City anticipates updating this report annually to account for the spending of prior year's bond proceeds. Please see the 2015 report for further details.
