Debt Review

The purpose of the Debt Review Committee (DRC) is to review all debt proposals which anticipate that repayment will occur beyond one fiscal year, and to make recommendations regarding the proposed debt to the County Mayor and the County Council prior to the debt obligation being incurred. The Committee may also review operating revenue and expenditure projections, as well as other financial information deemed necessary in evaluating debt proposals for capital projects. 

Please send your agenda items to the committee chair.

Regular meetings of the Debt Review Committee are generally held on the last Wednesday of each month at 2:00 pm in the Council conference room.  Additional meetings will be scheduled as needed.

It is the policy of the County to charge an application fee to defray some or all of actual costs incurred in conjunction with the conduit-type financing. Since the County is not required by law or policy to authorize such financings, and since such bond issues can consume a great deal of time which would otherwise be allocated to County programs and services paid primarily by County tax-paying citizens, the County has determined it is appropriate for those seeking to benefit from issuance of tax-exempt financing with Salt Lake County as the issuer to be responsible for an appropriate fee to defray certain relevant costs. For fee amount information, please see the DRC ordinance section 2.97.070, "Fees imposed."
