Refinancing loans saves county over $205,000

June 28, 2012

SMETHPORT – McKean County will save over $205,000 by refinancing loans from 2007.
Acting at a special meeting Thursday, County Commissioners Joe DeMott, Al Pingie and Cliff Lane approved a “debt ordinance” that calls for the issuance of $3,590,000 in new bonds to be repaid over an 11-year period.
The new loan pays off three bonds issued in 2007 for such projects as the courthouse renovation and the replacement of the Galico Bridge in Keating Township.
Falling interest rates prompted the commissioners to consider refinancing the 2007 bonds to save interest payments.
