Green Bond Reports

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. The City plans to update this report annually, or until the proceeds of a series have been spent.

Climate Action Plan

Building on decades of Saint Paul's framework for community resilience, the City of Saint Paul has developed a Climate Action & Resilience Plan. The plan focuses on achieving carbon neutrality in city operations by 2030 and citywide by 2050 with a suite of targets and actions to decrease emissions across every sector in the city. It also identifies ways to cultivate long-term resilience, enhance the natural infrastructure of the city, and promotes a vision for Saint Paul’s future with diminished threats of climate change.

Joint Property Tax Advisory Committee

The Joint Property Tax Advisory Committee (JPTAC) was established by state law. The Committee consists of elected or appointed officials from the City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County, and School Independent School District 625. The Committee is not open for public appointments.  The Committee will meet from time to time to make appropriate recommendations for the efficient and effective use of property tax dollars raised by each jurisdiction for programs, buildings, and operations.  The main purpose of JPTAC is to coordinate setting policies on budgets and taxation that jointly affect the citizens and taxpayers in the City of Saint Paul who are served and taxed by the three units of government.

Duties of the Committee include:

  1. Identify trends and factors likely to be driving budget outcomes over the next five years with recommendations for how the jurisdictions should manage those trends and factors to increase efficiency and effectiveness
  2. Agree on the appropriate level of overall property tax levy for the three jurisdictions and publicly report to the governing bodies of each jurisdiction for ratification or modification by resolution
  3. Identify areas of the budget to be targeted in the coming year for joint review to improve services and achieve efficiencies

Through JPTAC, an ad hoc sub-committee was formed called the Joint Debt Advisory Committee (JDAC).  The JDAC works on cross-jurisdiction communication, planning, and coordination regarding debt issuances.  JDAC's goal is to coordinate and monitor the impact of general obligation, property tax supported bonds in the City of Saint Paul.
