WHEREAS, the Board of Education of the City of Hoboken in the County of Hudson, New Jersey (the “Board”) has determined that it

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OF THE CITY OF HOBOKEN IN THE COUNTY OF HUDSON, NEW
JERSEY (with not less than two-thirds of the full membership thereof affirmatively concurring) AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. The Board hereby endorses the concept of the lease purchase financing of the proposed Project.

Section 2. The Board hereby determines that the annual lease purchase principal and interest payments for the Project can be
included within its net budget spending growth limitation and that such payments will not result in the need for approval by the
voters of additional spending proposals to maintain existing instructional programs or extracurricular activities.

Section 3. The Business Administrator/Board Secretary, together with the Superintendent of Schools, Bond Counsel, the Board
Attorney, Financial Advisor and other appropriate representatives of the Board (together, the “School District Professionals”) are

Counsel. The Board authorizes the Business Administrator/Board Secretary to arrange for title work on one or more of the schools
that may serve as security under the ground lease as may be required, to establish an escrow account for the deposit of the Lease
proceeds and to direct the deposit and investment of the Lease proceeds in the escrow for the term of the Lease or such shorter
period as may be necessary in accordance with the requirements of law. The Business Administrator/Board Secretary is also

sum to the Lessor under the Lease from any taxing source for the payment of any sums due under the Lease unless pursuant to an

count towards the limitation imposed by Section 265 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) and hereby
designates the lease purchase agreement a “qualified tax exempt obligation” for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code.

Section 11. The Board hereby declares its intent to issue the Lease in the expected maximum principal amount of the Lease set
forth herein and to use the proceeds of the Lease to pay or to reimburse expenditures for the costs of the Project for which the
