Capital Financing in Local Government

This course reviews the authorized debt financing and other capital financing options available to local governments in North Carolina. It reviews the legal authority and procedures for each capital financing option (current revenues, savings, special levies, and borrowing money) and discusses common practical and strategic issues. Note that the focus of the course is on state law authority only. It does not address marketing issues related to issuing debt. 

Participants will be required to complete a few hours of pre-work before the course begins. Details of the pre-work will be provided prior to class.
