Title
Authorizing a Loan, Approving the Form of a Capital Improvement Revenue Refunding Note, Series 2021, and a Loan Agreement (B)

A Resolution of the City of Gainesville, Florida authorizing: A loan in a principal amount of up to $12,000,000 to refinance certain outstanding loans and other items described herein and to pay the costs of such loan; approving the form of a capital improvement revenue refunding note, series 2021, and a loan agreement, providing other details with respect thereto; and providing effective date.
