Bid Procedure and Basis of Award
Subject to the right reserved by the City to reject any or all Bids, the Bonds will be sold to the bidder whose Bid produces the lowest TIC for the City and otherwise
complies with the Notice of Sale.
Bids must remain valid until at least 3:00 p.m., prevailing time, on the Sale Date, and if accepted by the City, prior to such time, shall be irrevocable except as
otherwise provided in the Notice of Sale. Upon selection of the winning bidder, the City will execute an award certificate to award the Bonds and will promptly communicate with the

Bid Security and Method of Payment for Bonds
A good faith deposit (the “Deposit”) in the form of a certified or cashier’s check, wire transfer (wiring instructions can be obtained from the City’s Municipal Advisor)
or a Financial Surety Bond in the amount of $127,300, payable to the order of the City, is required for each Bid to be considered. If a check is used, it must be a certified treasurer’s or
cashier’s check and must be provided to the City prior to 10:30 a.m. on the Sale Date for bids to be submitted. If a wire transfer is used, such wire must be received by the City prior to
10:30 a.m. on the Sale Date. Each bidder accepts responsibility for delivering such check or wire on time and the City is not responsible for any check or wire that is not received on
time. If a Financial Surety Bond is used, it must be from an insurance company licensed to issue such a bond in the State of New Jersey and approved by the Director of the Division of
Local Government Services of New Jersey (the“Director”) and such bond must be submitted to the City prior to 10:30 a.m.on the Sale Date at the address referred to above. At present,
the Director has approved the use of Sure-Bid, a division of Financial Security Assurance Inc. Use of any other Financial Surety Bond must be approved by the Director prior to the Bid
and will not be accepted by the City unless evidence of such approval is provided prior to the Bid. The Financial Surety Bond must identify the bidder whose Deposit is guaranteed by
such Financial Surety Bond. If the Bonds are awarded to a bidder utilizing a Financial Surety Bond, then that winning bidder is required to submit its Deposit to the City by wire transfer
as instructed by the City not later than 3:30 p.m. on the next business day following the Sale Date. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the Financial Surety Bond may be drawn
by the City to satisfy the Deposit requirement. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the winning bidder. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event
the winning bidder fails to honor its accepted Bid,the Deposit will be retained by the City. Award of the Bonds to the winning bidder or rejection of all Bids is expected to be made within
two hours after opening of the bids, but such winning bidder may not withdraw its proposal until after 3:00 p.m. on the Sale Date and then only if such award has not been made prior
to the withdrawal. The balance of the purchase price shall be paid in federal funds by wire transfer to the City on or about the Delivery Date.

winning bidder in formulating its bid to purchase the Bonds. The winning bidder shall be required to deliver on the Delivery Date a certificate to such effect and to provide to the City,
in writing, the Expected Offering Prices as of the Sale Date.
In the event the City receives fewer than three (3) bids for the Bonds, then the issue price for the Bonds shall be established based on the following method as

defined below). The winning bidder shall be required to deliver on the Delivery Date a certificate to such effect and to provide to the City,in writing,evidence satisfactory to Bond Counsel
to the City of such sales prices for each maturity of the Bonds. In the event that the winning bidder has not sold at least 10% of each maturity of the Bonds to the Public as of the Delivery
Date (each, an“Unsold Maturity”), the winning bidder shall (i) provide to the City, in writing, on the Delivery Date, the Expected Offering Prices for each Unsold Maturity and a certificate
regarding same and (ii) have a continuing obligation to provide to the City, in writing, evidence satisfactory to Bond Counsel to the City of the first price at which at least 10% of each
Unsold Maturity is sold to the Public, contemporaneous with each such sale, until at least 10% of all such Unsold Maturities have been sold to the Public.
Hold-the-Price: The issue price for the Bonds shall be established based on the initial offering price of the Bonds to the Public as of the Sale Date,provided that the winning
bidder shall, in writing, (i) confirm that the Underwriters have offered or will offer the Bonds to the public on or before the Sale Date at the offering price or prices set forth in the Bid submitted
by the Winning Bidder and (ii) agree,on behalf of the Underwriters participating in the purchase of the Bonds,that the Underwriters will neither offer nor sell the Bonds to any person at a price
that is higher than the initial offering price to the Public during the period starting on the Sale Date and ending on the earlier of: (1) the close of the fifth (5th) business day after the sale date
or (2) the date on which the Underwriters have sold at least 10% of the Bonds to the Public at a price that is no higher than the initial offering price to the Public.
Public means any person (including an individual, trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation) other than an Underwriter (as defined herein) or
a related party to an Underwriter.The term “related party” generally means any two or more persons who have greater than 50% common ownership, directly or indirectly. Underwriter
means (i) any person that agrees pursuant to a written contract with the Issuer (or with the lead underwriter to form an underwriting syndicate) to participate in the initial sale of the
Bonds to the Public, and (ii) any person that agrees pursuant to a written contract directly or indirectly with a person described in clause (i) of this paragraph to participate in the initial
sale of the Bonds to the Public (including a member of a selling group or a party to a third-party distribution agreement participating in the initial sale of the Bonds to the Public).
Delivery of the Bonds
The Bonds will be delivered on or about the Delivery Date (UNLESS A NOTICE OF A CHANGE IN THE DELIVERY DATE IS PUBLISHED ON PARITY NOT LATER THAN 2 HOURS PRIOR
TO ANY ANNOUNCED DATE FOR RECEIPT OF BIDS) in New York City at DTC against payment of the purchase price therefor (less the amount of the good faith deposit) in federal funds.
There will also be furnished the usual closing papers, including (1) a certificate signed by the officials who signed the Bonds stating that no litigation of any kind is
now pending or,to their knowledge,threatened to restrain or enjoin the issuance or delivery of the Bonds,or in any manner questioning the proceedings and authorization under which
the Bonds are issued or affecting the validity of the Bonds and (2) a certificate signed by the City relating to the Official Statement.
CUSIP Numbers
The Municipal Advisor will apply for CUSIP numbers with respect to the Bonds, but neither the Municipal Advisor nor the City will assume any obligation for the assignment or printing of such numbers on the Bonds or for the correctness of such numbers,and neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto
shall constitute cause for a failure or refusal by the winning bidder to accept delivery of and make payment for the Bonds. The CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of the
CUSIP numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the winning bidder.
Legal Opinion
The approving opinion of McManimon, Scotland & Baumann, LLC, Bond Counsel to the City, will be furnished without cost to the winning bidder.
