Sometimes you just need to get the public’s buy-in to a borrowing program. It may be the size of the undertaking, the nature of the project, or some other matter of local concern. Not many local governments go through this process frequently. So when you consider a bond referendum, you should find a friendly neighborhood bond counsel firm that’s experienced in the referendum process and which will guide you through comfortably through the process.
At Sanford Holshouser, we will meet with you at the beginning to talk about your bond program and how that might match up with the bond election process. We will help coordinate the required action of your local school board (in the case of a school bond election), the Local Government Commission and your local board of elections. Our process is designed to take as much of the burden off you as we can, and to make the work you have to do as easy to understand as possible.
In the last several years we’ve worked on successful bond referenda for our clients in Orange and Pender Counties as well as in Chapel Hill and Fuquay-Varina. We’d love to provide you with references from these clients or otherwise talk with you about how we can help. Click here and let us know if you’d like to talk about a bond referendum for your community.
