Background Information
The following information relates to the Town of Johnsonville for the fiscal years ending 9/30/14 and
9/30/15.
In March 2013, the citizens of Johnsonville approved an additional ¼ penny sales tax to be used to fund debt
service requirements associated with the City’s transportation network. During the spring and summer of
2013, the City Council, City Manager, Public Works Director, City Engineer, and a citizen’s committee
worked together to identify and prioritize the City’s transportation needs.
Based on the recommendation of the citizen’s committee, the City Council authorized an expansion and
extension of Main Street in an amount not to exceed $50,000,000 at its last meeting in September. The
project is to be funded with bonds of $39,000,000, a contribution of $9,500,000 from the General Fund, and a
State grant of $1,500,000 and a separate capital project fund will be used to account for the project
throughout its duration. Upon completion of the project, any funds remaining in the Capital Project Fund are
to be transferred to the Debt Service Fund.
The following transactions occurred during the fiscal years ending 9/30/14 and 9/30/15.
1. 10/15/13 – General Fund transferred $9,500,000 to the newly established Capital Projects Fund.
2. 3/1/14 – Paid architect fees of $2,000,000 associated with the road expansion.
3. 3/31/14 – The City issued 5%, 20-year serial bonds dated 3/31/14 in the face amount of $39,000,000 at
102. Interest is payable semi-annually on March 31 and September 30. Equal principal payments are due
each March 31 with the first principal payment due 3/31/15. According to the Bond Indenture, any premium
on the bonds is to be deposited into a debt service fund and is restricted for debt service (for accounting
purposes, assume the premium is amortized using the straight-line method). The Bond Indenture also
requires the City to transfer any unspent bond proceeds at the end of the construction project to the Debt
Service Fund to be used for debt service.
4. 4/15/14 – City Council awarded a $45,000,000 construction contract to the ABC Construction Company. A
purchase order was issued for the full amount of the contract.

placed in the right-of-way of the expanded road.

penny sales tax collected through 6/30/14.
