METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $1,498,670 of general funds to the Department of Environmental services for the biennium ending June 30, 2019, for the purpose of funding nine eligible and completed drinking water and wastewater projects under the state aid grant program.  The projects had warrant articles after December 31, 2008, and were completed before July 1, 2013.  The Department of Environmental Services estimates it will provide the nine municipalities with approximately $727,533 in FY 2018 and $717,195 in FY 2019 of state aid.  However, the dollar amounts included in this bill for each project are unverified estimates and may not be an accurate reflection of amounts owed to the named entities.  The actual payback periods, annual payments, and interest rates will vary with each application.  The Department also indicates that while the bill appropriates funds for two years, state aid grant expenditures for the projects will be twenty years or more.
