              PETITION OF TOWN OF FALMOUTH

              TO THE MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL COURT

              We, the undersigned Board of Selectmen of the Town of Falmouth submit this petition to the General Court for the enactment of special legislation on behalf of said town, which was approved by the vote on Article 22 of the special town meeting held in said Falmouth on April 9, 2013, as follows:

              AN ACT PERTAINING TO THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS

              OR NOTES BY THE TOWN OF FALMOUTH

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

              SECTION 1.  Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, the town of Falmouth is authorized to borrow, from time to time, such sums of money as may be necessary to pay costs of decommissioning, dismantling and removing wind turbines, repaying grants received on account of such wind turbines, refinancing outstanding debt related to such wind turbines, without regard to the present value savings requirements of section 21A of chapter 44, and for the payment of any and all other costs incidental and related thereto.  Bonds or notes issued under this act shall be issued for a term not to exceed 20 years from their date or dates of issue, and the maturities of any bonds issued by the town under this act either shall be arranged so that for each issue the annual combined payments of principal and interest payable in each year, commencing with the first year in which a principal payment is required, shall be as nearly equal as practicable in the opinion of the municipal treasurer and collector of taxes, or shall be arranged in accordance with a schedule providing for a more rapid amortization of principal. Bonds or notes issued under this act shall be outside the limit of indebtedness prescribed in section 10 of chapter 44, and, except as otherwise provided in this act, shall be subject to the applicable provisions of said chapter 44.

              SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.

              A certified copy of Article 22 is attached hereto.
