Cash Management and Investments

  • General and capital funds are invested according to the City Treasurer's Office policy.
  • Investments are bid to local banking institutions for varying periods.
  • Investment policy stresses safety and requires 100% collateralization.

Debt Management and Bond Issuance

  • The City funds large-scale projects with a useful life of over 15 years through the issuance of mutual bonds.
  • There are two types of bonds - new money for capital projects and refunding of existing bond issues.
  • The City funds new projects on a two-year cycle.
  • Projects must be approved by the Planning Commission and included in the City's six-year capital program and, ultimately, in the annual capital budget for funding.
  • The City Treasurer's Office monitors existing bond issues for refunding opportunities. Lower interest rates many times provide savings opportunities through the issuance of refunding bonds.
  • The City of Wilmington's bond rating is AA- by all three major rating agencies (Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's).
