14A Wednesday, May 127 2010 Feather River Bulletin Measure A Oversight Committee amends report Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Isatchwell@ At the Plumas District Hos- pital board meeting May 6, Bill Wickman, chairman of the Measure A Oversight Committee, presented the committee's annual report, in- cluding a clarification and amendment of the original re- port. Wickman wanted to present the amendment publicly, be- cause at the April Oversight Committee meeting, there had been a "discussion with Andy Ryback about interest rates. He felt they really weren't that high, so why was I reporting in the annual report that they were." Wickman went to PDH bond counselor Gary Hicks for clar- ification. "He has overseen the issuance of $3 billion in bonds, so he is somebody who is credible," said Wickman. At the time the district had to turn an assessment in to the tax assessor's office, Hicks "was using the municipal bond yield curves dated July 15, 2009. At that time," ex- plained Wickman, "the 30- year bond rate would have been 6.56 percent for bonds that would have been asked for and issued for the PDH project." In addition, the state's bond rating was falling drastically which "added 30 - 40 base points to the interest rate, which would have jumped it up to 6.86 - 6.96 percent," said Wickman. Interest rates were still climbing for municipal bonds, so Hicks built that rise into his estimate, coming up with the rate of 7.45 percent. On a contiguous subject, George Terhune announced during public comment the formation of a "Save Our Hos- pital" citizens' group. He said the current plan was to have district residents buy a badge that reads "Save Our Hospital" for a dollar and, at the same time, include their names for publication in a full-page ad. Terhune said the group hoped to gather between 600 and 1,000 signatures and cor- responding dollar amounts that would more than pay for the Feather Publishing ad, $567 at the nonprofit rate. All of the supporters' signatures would be included in the ad. Terhune asked the board and any community members for their "input or participa- tion" in the effort. | FOR PARE IS RUNNING A SALE INSIDE THE STORE DURING ..... THIS EVENTI MATTRESS? E!
