Caron, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Business Finance Authority. 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 BREWSTER ACADEMY IN WOLFEBORO, NEW HAMPSHIRE" and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Spaulding.

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received from the Business Finance Authority of the State of New Hampshire (the "Authority") its written recommendation that the Governor and Council make certain findings and a determination under RSA 162-I:9 with respect to the financing or refinancing of a commercial facility for Brewster Academy, a tax-exempt organization described in Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Borrower") in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire by the Authority's issuance of up to $500,000 in Bonds (the "Bonds") under RSA 162-I (the "Act"); and

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received all of the documentation and information with respect to the proposed transaction which they have requested; and

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

(2) The establishment and operation of the Facility will create and preserve employment opportunities directly or indirectly within the State of New Hampshire (the "State") and will likely be of general benefit to the community as a whole.

(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:1, 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. The Governor and Council find that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit and determine that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.

Section 3. Approval. The Governor and Council hereby approve the Authority's taking such further action under the Act with respect to the transaction involving the Facility, the Project and the Bonds as may be required.
