The City of Boston sells bonds to borrow the money needed to pay for the construction, rehabilitiation, and repair of all of its public buildings, including its schools, libraries, police, fire, and park facilities, streets and sidewalks. When market conditions are favorable the City may also issue general obligation bonds to reduce the interest rates that apply to its outstanding debt. The bonds are referred to as "general obligation bonds" because they are secured by the full faith and credit of the City, and are not secured by a particular source of revenue.
Electronic, digital copies of the Official Statements for the general obligation bonds issued in each of the years below are currently available to be viewed or downloaded. These electronic copies of the Official Statements are provided on the City's website for information purposes only, and do not constitute an offer to sell securities.
