2:29 pm
participation for the projects that were described in the legislation. we show them on page 2 of the report as well as some of the costs issued at debt. the ordinance does not authorize new debt that will be a separate action the board takes after the projects reviewed by capitol planning. we do have a preliminary estimate 251 million dollars. based on the debt service reserve fund. ip want to note that the city's financial policies limit the amount of certificates of participation that can be issued by capping debt service it 3.225%. buzz the city has cash finance certain projects or just not funded certain projects. and then the most recent years, well is a spare capacity within
2:30 pm
the certificates of participation program for 100 million dollars that could range 80 and 120 million dollars depenning what the general fund ref now funds. and if in the future the new debt issuance would push the city over that limit. the board would have to chos to reorder the capitol projects to not hit that cap. you may consider for the board. imented to -- thank this committee and -- especially supervisor preston and chan. for bring thanksgiving forward. supervisor preston, i know you worked closely with the controller. to come up with the idea of
