In addition, the District reserves the right to decrease the entire principal amount of the 2017 Bonds issued based on the actual interest rates bid by the successful bidder. If the maximum principal amount of the 2017 Bonds issued decreases, the District reserves the right to adjust principal amounts within maturities based on the parameters set forth in this paragraph.
As an alternative to part or all of the above series of maturities, the District will consider bids for a term bond or bonds, subject to mandatory sinking fund redemption by lot prior to maturity consistent with the dates and the amounts set forth above at a price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued interest to the date of redemption without premium.
All payments of interest on the 2017 Bonds will be paid by check or draft mailed one business day prior to each interest payment date, to the registered owners of the 2017 Bonds as of the first (1st) day of the month in which such interest is payable at the address as it appears on the registration books kept by the Registrar and/or Paying Agent as of the first (1st) day of the month of the interest payment date or at such other address as is provided to the Registrar and/or Paying Agent in writing by such registered owner. Principal on the 2017 Bonds will be payable at the principal corporate trust office of the Paying Agent.

The 2017 Bonds have been, or will be, designated as “qualified tax-exempt obligations” for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
REDEMPTION PROVISIONS. The 2017 Bonds are not subject to redemption prior to maturity.
INTEREST RATES. Each bid must be for all of the 2017 Bonds and must state the rate or rates of interest therefor, not exceeding the maximum per annum interest rate hereinbefore specified. Such interest rate or rates must be in multiples of one-eighth (1/8) or one-hundredth (1/100) of one percent (1.00%). Bids specifying more than one interest rate must also specify the amount and maturities of the 2017 Bonds bearing each rate. All 2017 Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate of interest and the interest rate bid on any maturity of 2017 Bonds shall be equal to or greater than the interest rate bid on any and all prior maturities of 2017 Bonds.

BASIS FOR AWARD. The sale of the 2017 Bonds will be awarded to the bidder making a bid that conforms to the specifications herein and which produces the lowest Net Interest Cost to the District. The lowest Net Interest Cost is determined by computing the total interest on all of the 2017 Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedule provided herein and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. In the event of a bidder’s error in interest cost calculations, the interest rates, premium, if any, and discount, if any, set forth or incorporated by reference in the Official Bid Form will be considered as the intended bid.
GOOD FAITH DEPOSIT. The successful bidder will be required to deliver to the financial advisor on behalf of the District a certified or cashier’s check, wire transfer consisting of immediately available funds to the District as instructed by the financial advisor on behalf of the District, or a financial surety bond in the amount of $2,500 (the amount of such check or financial surety bond being referred to hereinafter as the “Deposit”) within 24 hours after the bid is accepted. If a check is submitted, it must be drawn on a bank or trust company, which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. If a financial surety bond is used, it must be from an insurance company. In either case, the Deposit must be submitted to the District or its Financial Advisor prior to the Sale Time in order to qualify to bid and shall be made payable to “Driftwood Fire Protection District,” to be held uncashed in the case of a check or not drawn upon in the case of a financial surety bond as a guarantee of the good faith of the bidder. The checks of unsuccessful bidders will be returned immediately following the award of the 2017 Bonds. No interest will be allowed on any checks. If the 2017 Bonds are awarded to a bidder who has submitted a financial surety bond to the District, then such bidder must submit its Deposit to the District in the form of a certified or cashier’s check (or a wire transfer consisting of immediately available funds to the District as instructed by the financial advisor on behalf of the District) not later than 3:30 p.m. (local time) on the next business day following the award by the District. If such check or wire transfer is not received by that time, the financial surety bond may be drawn upon by the District to satisfy the Deposit requirements.
In the event the bidder to whom the 2017 Bonds are awarded shall fail or refuse to comply with the provisions of the bid and this notice, such Deposit shall become the property of the District and shall be taken and considered as liquidated damages of the District on account of such failure or refusal.
The successful bidder will be required to make payment for the 2017 Bonds in Federal Reserve or other immediately available funds and accept delivery of the 2017 Bonds within five (5) days after being notified that the 2017 Bonds are ready for delivery, at a bank designated by the District.

Any notice of rescission must be in writing. At the request of the District, the successful bidder shall furnish to the District, simultaneously with or before delivery of the 2017 Bonds, a certificate in form satisfactory to the District regarding the price at which a substantial amount of 2017 Bonds of each maturity was re-offered to the public, if applicable.

The principal of and interest on the 2017 Bonds will be payable as a general obligation of the District from ad valorem property taxes to be levied on all taxable property in the District, and the 2017 Bonds constitute an indebtedness of the District within the provisions and limitations of the Constitution of the State of Indiana.
BOND DELIVERY. At the time of delivery of the 2017 Bonds, the approving opinion of Barnes & Thornburg LLP, Indianapolis, Indiana, bond counsel, as to the validity of the 2017 Bonds, together with a transcript of bond proceedings, the printed 2017 Bonds and closing certificates in the customary form showing no litigation, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the District.
