We now have the official 2020 calendar for meetings of the Local Government Commission. We thought a table might be handy.

In addition to the meeting dates, this table shows the dates 28 days prior to the meeting, because, generally, the Commission staff wants a fairly complete application package in hand by then. We’ve also noted the dates 45 days prior to the meeting dates as that’s the deadline for sending in your advance notice to the General Assembly’s Joint Committee on Local Government (see this post for more information on that requirement).

The LGC no longer alternates monthly meetings between the full Commission and its Executive Committee. Instead, the full Commission meets each month. (The Executive Committee may still meet between meetings if needed.) You are allowed to close your financing as soon as you have LGC approval by the full Commission.

Also, keep in mind that the LGC generally won’t consider your application for a new-money borrowing in November, or later, unless the LGC staff has signed off on your new audit.
