The city of Chicago is not saving money on $130 million in refinancing. Alderman Burns is incorrect.

Jason Grotto @JasonGrotto
The key question on borrow is how much is taxable? Why borrow with taxable bonds? Because you are using it for things the IRS prohibits.
72d               
Jason Grotto @JasonGrotto
Ald. Burns incorrect to say that the GO bonds for infrastructure. How is taxable? A taxable borrowing is for operations.
72d               
Jason Grotto @JasonGrotto
Much of the money being borrowed will not do to infrastructure.

Joe Moore is wrong when he says the refunding will save money. @joemoore $130M is scoop and toss.
