WHEREAS, Zumbro has adopted a resolution on January 10, 2013, proposing to enter into a Amended and Restated Lease-Purchase Agreement and an Indenture (the "Certificate Documents") to issue the Certificates to refund the Lease, the termination value of which is $1,213,644.91 on the redemption date of February 28, 2013; and
WHEREAS, federal tax law requires that each Member District must adopt a resolution concurring with the issuance of debt by Zumbro on behalf of such Member District; and
