Ridgeline Municipal Strategies, LLC served as a municipal advisor to the Alpine Fire Protection District on recent issuance of the District's $5,278,000 Taxable Pension Obligation Bonds (2022), privately placed as a bank loan.
Ridgeline helped the District develop and implement a comprehensive pension cost optimization strategy and a pension liability management policy. A portion of the Unfunded Accrued Liability with CalPERS was refunded through issuance of pension obligation bonds to achieve cash flow savings. The pension obligation bonds were privately placed as a bank loan. The Project allows for greater fiscal resiliency of the District and better utilization of taxpayer funds.
