TREASURER’S CERTIFICATE

The undersigned Treasurer of the Town of Frye Island hereby certifies that:

1.         The total amount of general obligation indebtedness of the Town of Frye Island currently outstanding is $-0-

2.         The total amount of general obligation indebtedness of the Town of Frye Island authorized, but unissued is $-0-.

3.         The total amount of general obligation indebtedness of the Town of Frye Island contemplated to be incurred if the question authorizing issuance of such indebtedness is ratified is not in excess of $500,000.00.

4.         The anticipated maximum interest rate on the debt is 4.50%.  Assuming the issuance of the full $500,000 of debt to be authorized, level principal payments over a twenty-one (21) year term and an interest rate of 4.50%, the interest cost associated with the borrowing would be $273,786, which would result in a total cost of principal and interest to be paid at maturity of $773,786.

The foregoing represents an estimate of costs associated with the financing and such estimates will change due to market conditions.  The validity of the voters’ ratification of the note shall not be affected by any errors in the foregoing estimates.  The ratification by the voters is nevertheless conclusive and the validity of the note issue is not affected by reason of any variance of actual costs from the estimates provided hereinabove.
