1.03 REPORT OF ACTION TAKEN IN CLOSED SESSION
City Attorney Jason Alcala reported the City Council unanimously authorized City Manager Marc Roberts to execute a settlement agreement between the State of California, LVPAC, the City, and the Livermore Successor Agency, to settle LVPACs regional theater litigation, and the validation action by the City and the Successor Agency related to the regional theater. The settlement provides that LVPAC will be paid $3.75 million as an enforceable obligation that will be added to the Successor Agencys recognized obligation payment schedule - from what was formerly known as tax increment, and which is now referred to as the real property tax trust fund - when approved by the Oversight Board. In exchange, the parties will mutually release each other from any obligations related to the regional theater and the 2011-DDA related to the theater. In essence, he reported the settlement agreement effectively terminates the 2011-DDA for the regional theater. LVPAC and the State have both approved the agreement as to form.

5.02 ACQUISITION OF THE BANKHEAD THEATER AND FINANCING FOR THE CITYS CONTRIBUTION

i. authorize the City Clerk to file the Certificate of Acceptance for acquisition of the Bankhead Theater; and
ii. amend the Citys 2013 loan agreement and promissory note with LVPAC.

B. Consider a Funding Agreement between Alameda County and the City of Livermore for the Countys $2.8 million contribution toward retiring the Bankheads bond debt, and two Fiscal Agreements between Alameda County and the City of Livermore designating the use of funds from the Altamont Landfill and Vasco Road Landfill Host Community Impact Accounts to be used to repay the $9.2 million Certificates of Participation the City is issuing as its contribution toward retiring the Bankheads bond debt.

The proceeds of the Certificates will be used to: (1) refund a portion of the California Statewide Communities Development Authority revenue bonds, issued in the original aggregate principal amount of $23,830,000, the proceeds of which were used to finance the construction of 500-seat performing arts theater located at 2400 First Street, operated by the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, (2) fund a debt service reserve fund, if any, for the Certificates; and (3) pay certain costs of issuing the Certificates, including credit enhancement fees, if any. (Continued from September 8, 2014)
Recommendation: Staff recommended that as required by federal tax law, the City Council adopt a resolution approving the issuance of Certificates of Participation for the purpose of refunding a portion of the California Statewide Development Authoritys Variable Rate Demand Revenue Bonds (Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center Project), Series 2006; and
Adoption of a resolution authorizing and directing the Citys participation in the refunding of 2006 CSCDA Bankhead Theater bonds, the refunding of the Citys 2008 Certificates of Participation, execution of certain lease financing documents, authorizing and directing the sale of refunding Certificates of Participation, approving a preliminary official statement, and authorizing and directing certain actions with respect thereto.
D. Consider a Sublease and Operating Agreement between LVPAC and the City of Livermore for operation of the Bankhead Theater as a community theater.
Recommendation: Staff recommended the City Council adopt a resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute the Sublease and Operating Agreement.
City Manager Marc Roberts presented the staff report. He said since its opening in 2007, the Bankhead Theater had played an important role in bringing the performing arts to Livermore and revitalizing our downtown. Recently, the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center (LVPAC) determined that it would be unable to continue operation of the Bankhead Theater unless a restructuring plan was approved. On June 9, 2014 the City Council approved a conceptual plan to save the Bankhead Theater and directed staff to develop the appropriate implementation agreements. This evening staff returns with all of the agreements necessary to complete the transaction as directed by the City Council. Tonights presentation from staff will highlight the various agreements necessary to complete the transaction. While the concept is quite simple, the transaction is quite complicated. At its most basic however, the transaction will accomplish several straight-forward objectives: a) it will extinguish the outstanding construction debt on the Theater through contributions from the City, the Bank, the County and LVPAC; b) it will transfer ownership of the Theater from LVPAC to the City and grant LVPAC a lease to operate the Theater; c) it will extinguish plans to develop the Regional Theater by entering into a Settlement Agreement, with the State paying $3.75M in damages to LVPAC; d) and, it will require that LVPAC operate the Theater and report quarterly to the City on operations, fundraising, marketing, and programing.
City Attorney Jason Alcala described the agreements that constituted the overall transaction as follows:
1. A Master Settlement Agreement that memorializes the terms and conditions regarding each partys contributions to retire the Bankheads bond debt.
2. An Amended Loan Agreement and Promissory Note that extends the maturity date for the 2013 Loan between the City and LVPAC from December 13, 2015 to June 30, 2017.
3. A Funding Agreement that establishes the conditions for Alameda Countys $2.8 million contribution.
4. Amended Fiscal Agreements that amend the 2006 and 2011 fiscal agreements between the City and Alameda County to establish the terms and timing for the distribution of Landfill Host Community Impact Funds from the County to the City and the Citys use of the funds to pay off the anticipated certificates of participation.
5. Various financing documents for the two series of certificates of participation to refund the 2006 bonds for the Bankhead Theater, and the Citys 2008 Certificates of Participation.
6. Sublease and Operating Agreement that institutes the terms under which LVPAC may lease the Bankhead from the City to operate a community theater.
Community and Economic Development Director Stephan Kiefer presented the background on the Bankhead and Regional Theaters, the dissolution of redevelopment; deal points of the City, Alameda County, Bank of New York Mellon and LVPAC, with host community impact fees (HCIF) covering the Citys contribution; the Sublease and Operating Agreement outlining the term and periodic reporting.
Administrative Services Director Douglas Alessio reviewed the financing and Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) components.
Mr. Alessio summarized the major steps in the financing process and stated that the public hearing is required because the City will be issuing debt. He noted that the Citys currently outstanding COPs would be refunded and reissued as a part of this process.
Mr. Alessio said that the COPs will be issued with two Series. Series A will have approximately $9,290,000 in proceeds and will be used for the Bankhead Theater. The debt service for this Series will be funded by the HCIF. Series B will have approximately $49,750,000 in proceeds and will refund and reissue the Citys currently outstanding COPs. The General Fund and enterprise funds will provide the debt service for Series B.
Mr. Alessio explained that the issue was divided into two Series because the Series have different costs. This is because the Theater is not an essential asset. Structuring the issue this way will permit all of the costs for the Theater financing to be paid for by the HCIF.
City Manager Marc Roberts said upon Council approval of all actions included in this item, the next steps for the transaction were:
1. Placing the Settlement Agreement with the State of California on the agenda for consideration by the Oversight Board as an Enforceable Obligation for the meeting of October 1, 2014;
2. Final consideration of the County contribution by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors on October 7, 2014;
3. Sale of the Certificates of Participation and deposit of all required funds from all parties into the Escrow Account; and
4. Close of Escrow on November 7, 2014
Mr. Roberts said the comprehensive package would advance several significant goals that aligned with the Citys General Plan and the Councils priorities for Community Engagement strengthening community connections and engaging residents; and Quality of Life providing programs and services that enhance the quality of life for Livermore residents.
Mr. Roberts said the acquisition would:
1. Settle the Regional Theater project and free up the land on the Livermore Village site so the City could move forward with planning for this catalyst site.
2. Establish a public/private partnership focused on long term organizational and fiscal health.
3. Facilitate stabilization of LVPAC, and enable LVPAC to operate the Bankhead Theater in a manner that was financially sustainable.
4. Engage the community to share in oversight and the responsibility for ensuring the Bankheads long-term viability by establishing periodic reporting requirements.
5. Allow the uninterrupted operation of the Bankhead Theater to continue providing events and presentations and contributing to the revitalization of the Downtown Core.
6. Overall, these agreements set the stage for a new chapter in the life of the Bankhead Theater, and do so in a fiscally prudent manner with appropriate on-going oversight from the Community.
In response to questions by CM Gary, Mr. Alessio said the certificates of participation (COP) would not raise the Citys debt ceiling nor prevent the City from future borrowing.
In response to comments by VM Woerner, City Manager Marc Roberts said the funding for the issuance of the COP would come from a dedicated funding source. He said there would be administrative costs to the City similar to any other agreements with non-profits or government agencies. Any costs would be an appropriate general fund expense and would not create an additional need for resources or staffing. He said the HCIFs stand in first position and the annual monthly payments were enough to meet the debt service. He said the Citys general fund must stand behind the deal.
In response to questions by CM Horner, City Attorney Jason Alcala said the resolutions and agreements the Council was being requested to approve contained a contingencies that the other payments and actions by the other parties being taken and being placed into escrow before the City funded the purchase. He said there could be no substantial changes to the deal points in the documents that were being considered for approval by the Council.
Mr. Roberts confirmed CM Turners statement that the money being used for this deal was already being used for the theater and any substantial changes to the deal points would return to the Council for approval.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, Mr. Roberts said the approximate total value of the HCIF was estimated to be $17 million over 30 years; the City was guaranteeing the principal amount of $9.2 million through the issuance of the COP, which over a 30 year period would require a total repayment amount (including principal, estimated interest and fees) of approximately $12.5 million.

CM Turner said last year when she voted no on the loan to LVPAC, she did so because there was no plan. She said what had changed was now there was a plan and she could support approval. She said the planning that had occurred during the past 1½ years between all of the entities had been incredible. She said the money that was already going to the same exact thing is what the City was spending. She said the City was not spending anything new. She supported approval of this item.
CM Gary said the dissolution of redevelopment was like an asteroid striking LVPAC and taking away the revenue stream for a two-theater operation. He said consultants and executive directors of the Bankhead had all said one universal thing there was no single 500-seat theater in the United States that could afford its construction debt without a single large public or private benefactor. By removing the construction debt, the arts community can fundraise the remaining gap that performances do not pay for. He said governance is not easy; governance is about blending community interests what is best for the entire community. He said the City was pre-funding a revenue stream that will repay the City. He said this was a fundamentally different deal from last year and he totally supported approval.
CM Horner acknowledged City staffs dedication and hard work on this project. He thanked LVPAC for the original vision of the theater and their commitment to making this deal work. He said the Bankhead was the premier performing arts center in the Tri-Valley. In addition, he extended his thanks to Supervisor Scott Haggerty for originally steering the HCIF towards Livermore and securing $2.8 million and to reassign where the fees went. He encouraged everyone to continue to support the Bankhead Theater and keep it a viable operation into the future.
Mayor Marchand said support of the Bankhead Theater would continue to require ongoing effort as this was a public-private partnership of the community working together to ensure success of the Bankhead. Supervisor Haggerty did a tremendous job from the onset in securing the HCIFs for the Bankhead Theater; securing $400,000 last year to assist with the operating costs to keep the Bankhead open; and fighting to secure the $2.8 million to bridge the gap. HCIFs are not taxes but fees secured for garbage trucks driving through our community to the landfills. He noted that the HCIFs can only be used for Livermores community theater and nothing else.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, Mr. Roberts said the lease and sub-lease were a requirement of the financing tool, certificate of participation (COP). The COP is a lease of a pledged asset, which was how longer termed municipal financing was conducted. He explained that this was how cities were able to borrow money for assets that have a long useful life, a permanent object. The initial lease was a pledge of the underlying asset, namely the Bankhead Theater, to the holders of the debt; the sub-lease was between the City as the property owner, and LVPAC. He explained the difference between the fair market value of the property versus $2.8 million from Alameda County, stating that the Board of Supervisors stipulation was while they were willing to invest in the Bankhead Theater as a performing arts theater owned by a municipal corporation, the requirement was should the City every choose to transfer or sell that property, that bridge loan of $2.8 million be repaid. He said that was why the purchase price was set at $2.8 million.
In response to additional questions by Mayor Marchand, Mr. Roberts said the value of a forty year old 500-seat theater with a use restriction for community theater operation only, the estimated value would be close to zero.
CM Woerner said one thing that had not changed was the community had remained committed to the Bankhead Theater. He said the main challenge was putting together a viable deal and not risk the general fund. He said there were a lot of people dedicated to making this extremely complicated deal work. He commended City staff for their hard work.
