Based on points 1-8, I'm don't know why points 9-11 would be the justification to vote yes on this project.

Should read, "I don't know why".

Yes, Roc: That is based on a 20-year bond. Click here to see a fiscal impact statement of the project. It's attached here as Exhibit A. http://www.oxford-ct.gov/lib/site/data/meeting_documents/b6303deee76b8d41e828178b9a91c6bb/BOSSpMtgMin071012.PDF

You almost had me Dick until you mentioned interest rates and competitive pricing not being "favorable" in a downed economy. That's where you lost me. If you "buy" in a good economy you are paying for less competitive prices and higher rates. Ex. In 2007 before the economy tanked the bond rate was well over 4%, right now it's in the low 2%s. make no mistake about it, this is a buyer's market for non-everyday consumables. Interest rates are down everywhere. I wish I bought my house now at 3+% than I did at 5% before the market tanked. This is the best time to buy in term of rates and prices. And I don't specifically mean the fields. Good economies are seller's markets, bad economies are buyer's markets.
