AUTHORITY, PLEDGE, LEVY AND ACCOUNTS

Section 3.1 Authority.

The City declares it necessary and is authorized by SDCL 10-52-2.10 to issue Bonds to finance the costs associated with the public improvements and pay Costs of Issuance. The sales tax revenue bonds shall be issued pursuant to, and in accordance with, the provisions of the Act, the Bond Resolution, and other applicable provisions of law.

Section 3.2 Pledge of Sales Tax.

The City pledges so much of the collections of the Pledged Sales Tax as may be necessary to pay the principal, premium, and interest on the Bonds, and to maintain any debt service reserve established for the Bonds, if any.

Section 3.3. Collection of Taxes.

Pursuant to SDCL 10-52-2.10, the City does hereby pledge, provide and agree that it will continue to impose and collect the Pledged Sales Tax so long as the Bonds are outstanding. The governing body shall also pledge so much of the collections of the Pledged Sales Tax as may be necessary to pay the principal, premium and interest on the bonds and to maintain any Debt Service Reserve established for the Bonds.

Section 3.4. Accounts.

(a) Sales Tax. The Finance Officer will administer, enforce and collect, or cause to be administered, enforced and collected, the Sales Tax on goods and services subject to taxes and shall take all reasonable action necessary for this responsibility in accordance with law and standard principles of accounting. Notwithstanding the following named accounts, the Finance Officer may establish such accounts as are required by the South Dakota Legislative Audit Municipal Accounting Manual.

(b) Construction Account. There is hereby created and established a “Construction Account” There shall be credited to the Construction Account the proceeds from the sale of the Bonds remaining after (a) the deposit to the Reserve Account required by Section 3.04(d), and (b) payment of the (i) Purchaser’s discount, (ii) original issue discount and (iii) any other expenses of issuing the Bonds. All moneys credited to the Construction Account shall be applied solely to the payment of the costs associated with the Public Improvements.

(c) Principal and Interest Account. There is hereby created and established a “Principal and Interest Account.” Immediately upon delivery of the Bonds, there shall be credited to the Principal and Interest Account the amount of accrued interest received from the Purchaser. Commencing on the date specified in the Bond Purchase Agreement, there shall be withdrawn from the Sales Tax receipts at least monthly and credited to the Principal and Interest Account an amount which, together with future credits, will be sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the Outstanding Bonds as the same become due.

(d) Reserve Account. There is hereby created and established a “Reserve Account.” There shall be credited to the Reserve Account from the proceeds of the Bonds, an amount equal to the Reserve Requirement. Thereafter, in the event that the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account shall thereafter fall below the Reserve Requirement, additional deposits shall be made from the Pledged Sales Tax to the Reserve Account until the Reserve Requirement is again reached. Upon the issuance of any parity lien bonds, the Reserve Requirement established in this section shall be increased to an amount equal to the combined maximum annual debt service on the Outstanding Bonds. The balance required shall be funded on the delivery date of the parity lien bonds. Moneys credited to the Reserve Account may be used only for the payment of principal of and interest on the Outstanding Bonds and shall be used only in the event that there are insufficient moneys in the Principal and Interest Account to meet such principal and interest payments promptly when due. The interest from any investment of the Reserve Account may be transferred from time to time to the Construction Account, provided that after completion of the Improvements such interest shall be transferred to the Principal and Interest Account. No transfer of investment income shall be made from the Reserve Account at any time when the balance therein is less than the Reserve Requirement. Such investments shall be subject to the limitations of South Dakota law.

(e) Subordinate Lien Bonds. After making the above required payments, any remaining Pledged Sales Tax may be used for the payment of the principal of and interest on any additional sales tax revenue bonds having a lien which is subordinate to the lien of the Outstanding Bonds, and for a reserve fund as additional security for the payment of such subordinate lien bonds.

(f) Other Expenditures. The remaining Pledged Sales Tax may be used for any legally authorized purpose.

BOND OPINION

$7,100,000
City of Brookings
Brookings County, South Dakota
Sales Tax Revenue Bonds, Series 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as bond counsel in connection with the issuance by the City of Brookings (the "Issuer") of $7,100,000 Sales Tax Revenue Bonds, Series 2019, dated _________ ____, 2019, (the "Bonds"). We have examined such certified proceedings and other papers as we deem necessary to render this opinion.

As to questions of fact material to our opinion, we have relied upon the certified proceedings and other certifications of public officials furnished to us, without undertaking to verify such facts by independent investigation.

Based upon the foregoing, we are of the opinion that, under existing law:

1. The Issuer is duly created and validly existing as a body corporate and politic and public instrumentality of the State of South Dakota with the corporate power to adopt and perform the Resolution and issue the Bonds.

2. Resolution _________ has been duly adopted by the Issuer on ____________ ___, 2019 and constitutes a valid and binding obligation of the Issuer enforceable upon the Issuer.

3. The Resolution pledges the City’s two percent non-ad valorem sales, service and use tax authorized by SDCL §10-52-2.10 and imposed by the provisions of Article II, Chapter 78 of the Revised Ordinances of the City of Brookings (the “Sales Tax) in an amount sufficient to pay principal, premium and interest when due on the Bonds.

4. The Bonds have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Issuer and are valid and binding special obligations of the Issuer, payable solely from City’s Sales Tax.

5. The interest on the Bonds is excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes and is not an item of tax preference for purposes of the federal alternative minimum tax. The opinions set forth in the preceding sentence are subject to the condition that the Issuer comply with all requirements of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as amended, that must be satisfied subsequent to the issuance of the Bonds in order that interest thereon be, or continue to be, excluded from gross income for federal income tax purposes. The Issuer has covenanted to comply with each such requirement. Failure to comply with certain of such requirements may cause the inclusion of interest on the Bonds in gross income for federal income tax purposes to be retroactive to the date of issuance of the Bonds. We express no opinion regarding other federal tax consequences arising with respect to the Bonds.

6. The Bonds are free from taxation within the State of South Dakota, except for estate, inheritance taxes and taxes imposed upon financial institutions under chapter 10-43. We express no further opinions regarding other South Dakota tax consequences arising with regard to the Bonds.

It is to be understood that the rights of the holders of the Bonds and the enforceability thereof may be subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting creditors' rights heretofore or hereafter enacted to the extent constitutionally applicable and that their enforcement may be subject to the exercise of judicial discretion in accordance with general principles of equity and subject to regulatory requirements under the laws of the United States and of the State of South Dakota.
