• (1) The Certificates, or any part thereof, including the interest thereon, may be refunded, and the refunding certificates so issued shall enjoy complete equality of lien with the portion of the Certificates which is not refunded, if there be any, and the refunding certificates shall continue to enjoy whatever priority of lien over subsequent issues may have been enjoyed by the Certificates refunded; provided, however, that if only a portion of the Certificates outstanding is so refunded and the refunding certificates require total principal and interest payments during any year in excess of the principal and interest which would have been required in such year to pay the Certificates refunded thereby, then such Certificates may be not refunded without the consent of the Owners of the unrefunded portion of the Certificates issued hereunder (provided such consent shall not be required if such refunding certificates meet the requirements set forth in clause 2 of this Section).

• (2) Additional debt obligations may be issued on and enjoy a full and complete parity with the Certificates with respect to the funds to be derived by the Issuer from the levy and collection of the Tax provided that the anticipated Tax revenues in the year in which the additional debt obligations are to be issued must be at least 1.35 times the combined principal and interest requirements for any calendar year on the Certificates, any outstanding additional debt obligations issued pursuant to the provisions hereof and the proposed additional certificates of indebtedness.

• (3) Junior and subordinate debt obligations may be issued without restriction.

• (4) The Issuer must be in full compliance with all covenants and undertakings in connection with the Certificates and there must be no delinquencies in payments required to be made in connection therewith.

• SECTION 10. Budget; Audit. As long as any of the Certificates are outstanding and unpaid in principal or interest, the Issuer shall prepare and adopt a budget prior to the beginning of each fiscal year and shall furnish a copy of such budget within thirty (30) days after its adoption to any Owner upon request therefor. The Issuer shall also cause an audit of its books and accounts to be made as may be required by State law, and a copy of such audit shall be furnished to any Owner upon request therefor.

• SECTION 11. Application of Proceeds. The Executive Officers are hereby empowered, authorized and directed to do any and all things necessary and incidental to carry out the provisions of this Resolution; to cause the necessary Certificates to be printed; to issue, execute and seal the Certificates; and to effect delivery thereof as herein provided. The proceeds derived from the sale of the Certificates shall be deposited by the Issuer with its fiscal agent or other financial institution authorized for such deposit under State law to be used only for the purposes for which the Certificates are issued.

• SECTION 12. Legal Obligations. The Certificates shall constitute legal, binding and valid obligations of the Issuer and shall be the only representations of the indebtedness as herein authorized and created.

• SECTION 13. Contract. The provisions of this Resolution shall constitute a contract between the Issuer, or its successor, and any Owners from time to time of the Certificates, and any Owners may at law or in equity, by suit, action, mandamus or other proceedings, enforce and compel the performance of all duties required to be performed by this Governing Authority or the Issuer as a result of issuing the Certificates.

No material modification or amendment of this Resolution, or of any resolution amendatory hereof or supplemental hereto, may be made without the consent in writing of the Owners of the Certificates.

• SECTION 14. Severability; Application of Subsequently Enacted Laws. In case any one or more of the provisions of this Resolution or of the Certificates shall be held to be illegal or invalid, such illegality or invalidity shall not affect any other provisions of this Resolution or of the Certificates, but this Resolution and the Certificates shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal or invalid provisions had not been contained therein. Any constitutional or statutory provisions enacted after the date of this Resolution which validate or make legal any provision of the Resolution and/or the Certificates which would not otherwise be valid or legal, shall be deemed to apply to this Resolution and to the Certificates.

• SECTION 15. Recital of Regularity. This Governing Authority having investigated the regularity of the proceedings had in connection with the Certificates and having determined the same to be regular, the Certificates shall contain the following recital, to-wit:

“It is certified that this Certificate is authorized by and is issued in conformity with the requirements of the Constitution and statutes of this State.”

• SECTION 16. Effect of Registration. The Issuer, the Paying Agents, and any agent of either, may treat the Owners in whose name the Certificates are registered as the Owners thereof for the purpose of receiving payment of the principal of and interest on the Certificate and for all other purposes whatsoever, and to the extent permitted by law, neither the Issuer, the Paying Agent, nor any agent of either shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

• SECTION 17. Cancellation of Certificates. The Certificates, when surrendered for payment or prepayment, shall be promptly canceled by the Paying Agent or the Issuer. The canceled Certificates held by the Paying Agent shall be disposed of as directed in writing by the Issuer.

• SECTION 18. Paying Agents. The Issuer will at all times maintain a Paying Agent or Paying Agents for the performance of the duties hereunder as paying agent and registrar for the Certificates. The designation of the initial Paying Agents in this Resolution is hereby confirmed and approved. The Issuer reserves the right to appoint successor Paying Agents.

• SECTION 19. Arbitrage and Bank Qualification. The Issuer covenants and agrees that, to the extent permitted by the laws of the State of Louisiana, it will comply with the requirements of the Code in order to establish, maintain and preserve the exclusion from “gross income” of interest on the Certificates under the Code. The Issuer further covenants and agrees that it will not take any action, fail to take any action, or permit any action within its control to be taken, or permit at any time or times any of the proceeds of the Certificates or any other funds of the Issuer to be used directly or indirectly in any manner, the effect of which would be to cause the Certificates to be “arbitrage bonds” or would result in the inclusion of the interest on the Certificates in gross income under the Code, including, without limitation, (i) the failure to comply with the limitation on investment of Certificate proceeds, (ii) the failure to pay any required rebate of arbitrage earnings to the United States of America or (iii) the use of the proceeds of the Certificates in a manner which would cause the Certificates to be a “private activity bond”.

The Certificates are designated as “qualified tax-exempt obligations” within the meaning of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code. In making this designation, the Issuer finds and determines that:

• (a) the Certificates are not “private activity bonds” within the meaning of the Code; and

• (b) the reasonably anticipated amount of qualified tax-exempt obligations which will be issued by the Issuer and all subordinate entities in calendar year 2019 will not exceed $10,000,000.

The Executive Officers are hereby empowered, authorized and directed to take any and all action and to execute and deliver any instrument, document or certificate necessary to effectuate the purposes of this Section.

• SECTION 20. Publication. A copy of this Resolution shall be published immediately after its adoption in one (1) issue of the official journal of the Governing Authority.

• SECTION 21. Award of Certificates. The Issuer hereby accepts the respective offers of the Purchasers to purchase the Certificates, the originals of which are on file with the Secretary of the Governing Authority. The Certificates shall be delivered to the Purchasers upon payment of the respective principal amounts of Certificates.

• SECTION 22. Disclosure Under SEC Rule 15c2-12. It is recognized that the Issuer will not be required to comply with the continuing disclosure requirements described in the Rule 15c2-12(b) of the Securities and Exchange Commission [17 CFR §240.15c2-12(b)], because the aggregate principal amount of the Certificates is less than $1,000,000.

• SECTION 23. Application to State Bond Commission and Police Jury. Application is hereby made to the Louisiana State Bond Commission and the Franklin Parish Police Jury for consent and authority for Franklin Parish Fire Protection District No. 2, State of Louisiana, to issue, sell and deliver not exceeding Three Hundred Eighty-Nine Thousand Dollars ($389,000) of the Certificates all in the manner provided by the Act, for the purposes set forth in Section 2 hereof. The Certificates will be sold at par, will mature annually no later than March 1, 2029, and bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 3.95% per annum. The Certificates shall be secured by and payable from a pledge and dedication of the revenues of the Tax (the rate thereof being subject to adjustment from time to time due to reassessment) authorized to be levied in each year.

• SECTION 24. Swap Policy. By virtue of applicant’s/issuer’s application for, acceptance and utilization of the benefits of the Louisiana State Bond Commission’s approval resolved and set forth herein, it resolves that it understands and agrees that such approval are expressly conditioned upon, and it further resolves that it understands, agrees and binds itself, its successors and assigns to, full and continuing compliance with the “State Bond Commission Policy on Approval of Proposed Use of Swaps, or other forms of Derivative Products Hedges, Etc.”, adopted by the Commission on July 20, 2006, as to the borrowing and other matter(s) subject to the approval, including subsequent application and approval under said Policy of the implementation or use of any swap(s) or other product(s) or enhancement(s) covered thereby.

• SECTION 25. Employment of Bond Counsel. The Issuer finds and determines that a real necessity exists for the employment of special counsel in connection with the issuance of the Certificates, and accordingly, Foley & Judell, LLP, of New Orleans, Louisiana, as Bond Counsel, is hereby employed to do and perform work of a traditional legal nature as bond counsel with respect to the issuance and sale of said Certificates. Said Bond Counsel shall prepare and submit to this Governing Authority for adoption all of the proceedings incidental to the authorization, issuance, sale and delivery of such Certificates, shall counsel this Governing Authority as to the issuance thereof and shall furnish its opinions covering the legality of the issuance of the Certificates. The fee of Bond Counsel is fixed at a sum not exceeding the fee allowed by the Attorney General’s fee guidelines for such bond counsel work in connection with the issuance of revenue Certificates and based on the amount of said Certificates actually issued, sold, delivered and paid for, plus “out-of-pocket” expenses, said fees to be contingent upon the issuance, sale and delivery of said Certificates. A certified copy of this resolution shall be submitted to the Attorney General of the State of Louisiana for his written approval of said employment and of the fees herein designated.

In connection with the employment of Bond Counsel, the Issuer authorizes the Chairman of the Issuer to execute, and hereby agrees to and accepts the terms of the engagement letter of Bond Counsel, a copy of which is on file with the Secretary of the Issuer.

• SECTION 26. Effective Date. This Resolution shall become effective immediately upon its adoption.

GILBERT WATER SYSTEM

Public Water Supply ID: LA1041002

Consumer Confidence Report

The Water We Drink

GILBERT WATER SYSTEM

Public Water Supply ID: LA1041002

We are pleased to present to you the Annual Water Quality Report for the year 2018. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of your water and services we deliver to you every day (Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable. Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien). Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water.

Our water system purchases water as listed below:

Buyer Name Seller Name

GILBERT WATER SYSTEM WEST WINNSBORO WATER SYSTEM

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

Microbial Contaminants - such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.

Inorganic Contaminants - such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.

Pesticides and Herbicides - which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.

Organic Chemical Contaminants – including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.

Radioactive Contaminants – which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you have any questions about this report, want to attend any scheduled meetings, or simply want to learn more about your drinking water, please contact MIKE STEPHENS at 318-435-6506.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. GILBERT WATER SYSTEM is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - Office of Public Health routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The tables that follow show the results of our monitoring during the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2018. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk.

In the tables below, you will find many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these terms, we’ve provided the following definitions:

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/L) – one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/L) – one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or a single penny in $10,000,000.

Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) – picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water.

Nephelometric Turbidity Unit (NTU) – nephelometric turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable to the average person.

Treatment Technique (TT) – an enforceable procedure or level of technological performance which public water systems must follow to ensure control of a contaminant.

Action level (AL) – the concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

Maximum contaminant level (MCL) – the “Maximum Allowed” MCL is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCL’s are set as close to the MCLG’s as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) – the “Goal” is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to human health. MCLG’s allow for a margin of safety.

Maximum residual disinfectant level (MRDL) – The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal (MRDLG) – The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
