The article presents information on the plans of Seattle, Washington, to competitively price just over $133 million of limited-tax general obligation bonds to finance various transportation and infrastructure projects, as well as refinance outstanding debt. Michael van Dyck, the city's debt manager, said that the city currently expects to issue around $59 million of new-money debt and just over $73 million of refunding bonds. He said that because of where they were originally priced, the Series 1995 and 1997 A bonds are likely to remain viable refunding candidates.
