She said that she and the members of the Council had received the written recommendation of the Authority and other documentation and information with respect to the project. The Governor said that the meeting would then hear anyone wishing to speak on the subject. Jack Donovan, Executive Director of the Authority, briefly explained the project, emphasized that the credit of the State was not involved and introduced Steve Plant, Chief Financial Officer of the Borrower. The Governor then repeated that the proceedings were a public hearing and asked whether any other person wished to speak; there being none, Councilor Burton introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCING OF A COMMERCIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY FOR COTTAGE HOSPITAL IN WOODSVILLE (TOWN OF HAVERHILL), NEW HAMPSHIRE" and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Griffin. After discussion of the resolution, the Governor called for a vote on the motion.

The Facility is within the definition of "Commercial Facility" in RSA 162-I and may be financed under the Act.

(4) The Financing Documents do not purport to create any debt of the State with respect to the Facility, other than a special obligation of the Authority acting on behalf of the State under the Act.

(5) The proposed financing of the Project by the Authority and the proposed operation and use of the Facility will serve one or more needs and implement one or more purposes set forth in RSA 162-I, will preserve or increase the social or economic prosperity of the State and one or more of its political subdivisions, and will promote the general welfare of the State's citizens.

Section 2. Ultimate Finding and Determination.
