Continued Conversations • Public information & outreach • With our funding partners • Value Continued Conversations • Public information & outreach • With our funding partners • Value Engineering process • • • – Review current plan and determine most cost effective approach – Refine/re-examine some program decisions – District hires independent engineering team of experts – Engage key representatives of community in process Costs involved, need Agency buy-in Possible plan revision and approvals No guaranteed outcome Will impact schedule Will require more planning costs

FUNDING FUNDING

The Funding Dance – Government/Community Partnership • Government investment – – Appropriations from federal The Funding Dance – Government/Community Partnership • Government investment – – Appropriations from federal and state elected officials Grants and low-interest loans from funding programs Require project to be approved, designed, constructed & maintained Grant/loan programs are not willing to contribute further without LID formation (the dance) • Community investment – Local Improvement District (LID) formation • • mechanism for repayment of debt allows FWSD to attract further grants to bring the sewer cost down is one step in a long process construction requires a separate discrete series of decisions – Connection charges • not a reliable source of payment/repayment for a new system – Monthly rates

Sewer Funding Plan Capital Funding State/Federal Appropriations State/Federal Grants & Loans Interim: Bank Line Sewer Funding Plan Capital Funding State/Federal Appropriations State/Federal Grants & Loans Interim: Bank Line of Credit Debt Repayment / User Recovery LID Assessments, Island County Rural Sales Tax, $100 k/yr O&M / Admin / Short-Lived Assets Monthly Rates Goal: Most Advantageous $$ for Ratepayers

Targeted Funding Sources • DOE water quality programs – grant/loan application due October 2012 Targeted Funding Sources • DOE water quality programs – grant/loan application due October 2012 – draft offer for design loan (not grant-eligible) – potential $5 M grant for severe hardship – potential $1. 75 M grant for Green Project Reserve • USDA-Rural Development – grant/loan application planned October 2012 – potential $1. 5 M grant with $3. 5 M loan

More Targeted Funding Sources • Community Development Block Grant – Grant for qualified low-income More Targeted Funding Sources • Community Development Block Grant – Grant for qualified low-income assessment relief – $1 M would provide 45 homes at $21, 800 – Island County would be applicant • Community Economic Revitalization Board – Design/construction assistance for service to manufacturing sector • WA State Public Works Trust Fund – Low-interest loans, maximum $10 M per biennium – 5 -year deferral for new systems

Funding – Where We Are Now • Remain hopeful for potential appropriation to fund Funding – Where We Are Now • Remain hopeful for potential appropriation to fund design process – Can delay LID formation – Avoid borrowing funds until construction • Continue to work with funding program administrators – LID formation will be required for additional grants/loans – Meet with Funding Tech Team in October • Seek to reduce costs through design process
