NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Mayor and Board of Alderman (the

The Note shall mature as to principal and interest in five (5)

principal of and interest on the Note due during the ensuing fiscal year

of the Town. Said tax shall be extended upon the tax rolls and collected

in the same manner and at the same time as other taxes of the Town are

without limitation as to rate or amount. The avails of said tax shall be

irrevocably pledged for the payment of the principal of and interest on

the Note as the same shall mature and accrue.
