As has been the case for the past several years (check out these newspaper reports from 2011 and 2013), the city is again preparing to borrow a substantial sum to keep up with the bills before the taxes start flowing in again.

According to the City Council agenda for Feb. 2, finance officials want members to forward a request to borrow $100,000,000 in “tax anticipation notes” to help pay expenses to the Budget Committee for consideration:

Communication from Finance Department re: Approval of Tax Anticipation Notes to Pay Current Expenses and Obligations of the City ($100,000,000), referred to Budget & Appropriations Committee.

From investopedia.com :“Tax anticipation note financing helps governments smooth out the ups and downs in their revenue cycles, if the timing of their receipts does not match the timing of their expenditures.”
