CT Gen Stat § 7-405a (2012) What's This?

Any political subdivision of this state empowered to lay taxes or to provide water for the inhabitants thereof may from time to time borrow upon the note or notes of such political subdivision, in anticipation of: (1) The receipt of tax collections, (2) the receipt of water rents or charges or (3) the receipt of any federal or state grant with respect to a project or program, provided such political subdivision has received a specific written commitment from the appropriate federal agency in the case of a federal grant or from the appropriate authorized state official in the case of a state grant, as to the amount of such grant and the approximate date of receipt, such sums as in the judgment of its legislative body shall be required to pay current expenses and obligations of such political subdivision or the expenses of the political subdivision in connection with such project or program, and may renew such notes from time to time, provided all such notes shall mature and be payable not later than the end of the fiscal year during which such tax collections, water rents or charges or federal or state grants are payable. Borrowings in anticipation of tax collections shall not exceed the total tax levy of the then current fiscal year or, if no tax levy has then been made, shall not exceed the tax levy of the next-preceding fiscal year. Borrowings in anticipation of water rents or charges shall not exceed uncollected amounts then due. Borrowings in anticipation of a federal or state grant shall not exceed the amount of the commitment with respect to such project or program by the appropriate federal agency or the state and all such borrowings shall be applied by such political subdivision to such project or program and such grant shall first be used to repay such borrowings. Such borrowings may be authorized by resolution or ordinance adopted by the legislative body of any such political subdivision and any notes so authorized may be issued and sold in the manner provided by such resolution or ordinance.

(1959, P.A. 522; 1967, P.A. 137; P.A. 76-419, S. 1, 2; P.A. 77-614, S. 19, 610; P.A. 85-543, S. 6, 7.)

History: 1967 act broadened scope of statute to permit borrowing to meet current expenses and obligations rather than to meet deficits “in the current quarterly installment of taxes” or “in the collection of the amounts due for any semiannual period from the collection of its water rents or charges” and set out procedure for and limits on borrowing; P.A. 76-419 allowed borrowing in anticipation of receipt of federal or state grants for specific programs or projects and set limit on such borrowing; P.A. 77-614 substituted secretary of the office of policy and management for commissioner of finance and control; P.A. 85-543 removed the phrase “legally enforceable” concerning commitments, removed the provision concerning regulations by the secretary of the office of policy and management and added phrase specifying that borrowing to pay expenses connected with a project or program is authorized.
