ANN ARBOR PLASMA CORPORATIONd
By JEFFREY WOLFF
The Ann Arbor Transportation
Authority (AATA) has received a short-
term loan from the Ann Arbor Bank for
$1.1 million which should enable the
board to pay its bills until federal funds
arrive in March, AATA announced
The loan, repayable at 5.78 per cent
interest by September 15, 1979, is inten-
ded to help AATA meet its $6.5 million
budget until the expected $1,751,879 in
federal funds arrive.
THE AATA BOARD had requested
bids from seven local banks and had
received'three bids before the Decem-
ber 5 deadline. One of these bids was
The $1.1 million loan is supplemented
by a $300,000 loan repayable at 5.5 per
cent interest from the Community Bank
of Washtenaw. That loan was received
and approved by the board prior to its
first deadline of November 9. The board
had been forced to extend this deadline
until December 5 when AATA had
received only the one bid by that
time-a bid from Community Bank of.
The board had accepted during its
November 15 session the Community
Bank loan after AATA's Controller
Janice Mackin, said it was needed to
pay November's expense. She said, "I
could live with this current financial
situation, but only until December 22."
AATA FINANCE committee chair-
man Richard Beaupre said board ap-
proval of these two loans "should take
care of AATA's borrowing needs for the
rest of this year (till June 30). " Last
year identical circumstances led AATA
to borrow approximately $900,000 at 4.9
per cent interest and Beaupre did
acknowledge that such local borrowing
"will be an ongoing occurence from
The board rejected the third bid
which was received from National
Bank and Trust for $250,000 at seven per
THE EXTENSION on bids had been
approved, upon Beaupre's assurance
that AAB had told him of its intention to
make a bid. Beaupre had also said he
was told of other banks that would
make bids if given extra time. The
board had authorized AATA to seek the
bids on November 1, nine days prior to
the first deadline.
Both banks eventually agreed to ac-
cept the federal funds as security but
insisted on assigning the approximately
$2 million AATA will receive in city
millage in the summer as secondary
collateral. Beaupre explained that the
banks' uneasiness. with relying on
federal grants as collateral is due to the
fact that the $1,751,879 is expected but
Consequently, Beaupre said "if some
bureaucrat in Washington decided that
we are not complying with all their
standards, he can turn off the (federal)
