College Will Save on Bonds

Bowers Residence Hall

Monmouth College will save significant interest payments by taking advantage of low interest rates. It will refinance a bond issue. The college used a portion of the city's bonding authority to pay for construction of Bowers Residence Hall

The $6 million building was completed in 2001.

City Administrator Eric Hanson says the city had to approve the change before the bond counsel could move forward.

He says, “It dramatically reduces their interest rate over several years ago. But it doesn't really have any ramifications for the city.”
