Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Pearland City Council on Monday voted 3-1, with Felicia Kyle opposed, to approve the issuance $7.685 million in Economic Development Corporation Sales Tax Revenue Bonds.

According to City Manager Bill Eisen, the bonds are for the construction of the Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. Facility.  The Pearland Economic Development Corporation approved the bond issue on April 26, but required city council approval for issuance.

"The total amount of the bond sale was anticipated to be $8,350,000, however there were substantial savings on the construction contract in the amount of $748,215, which included a $102,796 change order deduction," Eisen said.

The bond will have a life of 20 years, and includes a 5.12 percent interest rate.  Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. is a medical device manufacturing company.  The company will lease the facility built through the bond funds by the EDC.
