Unique Characteristics of Project: Restructuring allowed for leased asset substitution and modification to the annual debt service to allow for projected future bond financing for additional capital improvements to City facilities. The project required working with Department of Health and the Office of Public Finance to develop financing strategy that met asset allocation and budgetary constraints.
