We are excited to share our new quarterly newsletter! We listened to the feedback so many of you offered in our Client Engagement Survey earlier this year – the need for stories directly relating to the work you do, more case studies, and the ability to self-select the articles you’d like to read – and hope you find this new format valuable.
In this issue, you’ll find timely information on getting municipal projects done during this period of high inflation and rising interest rates, communicating the relationship (or lack thereof) between school district revenues and property taxes to your constituents, understanding the “mark-to-market” requirement for public investment portfolios and what unrealized losses really mean, and reviewing your arbitrage obligations (they’re back!) in the current rate environment. You’ll also see a year-in-review overall market commentary, including some thoughts on what we can expect in 2023.
As we close out 2022 and look forward to the new year, we extend our sincerest gratitude for the trust you’ve placed in Ehlers. We deeply appreciate our relationships with all of you and how we strive together to achieve a shared mission of building vibrant, sustainable, and equitable communities.
Wishing you the best for a happy and healthy 2023.
