thereof for federal income tax purposes pursuant to Section 103 of the Code. The proceeds of
the Note will be used to (i) finance costs of the purchase and acquisition of a lot or parcel of land
containing 2.7 acres, more or less, at the intersection of New York Avenue and West Virginia
Route 45; at or near the property that had an address of 1647 New York Avenue, Martinsburg,

The Fire Board anticipates acquiring the Property early in calendar year 2020 and

rescue services, which station will include vehicle, office and administrative space, bunkrooms,

Property.

views, both orally and in writing, regarding the Note and the location and nature of the property
to be financed, purchased, acquired, constructed and landscaped with the proceeds of the Note.
