HUMBOLDT — Humboldt’s financial picture got a whole lot rosier Monday night when city council members approved the reissuing of about $1.5 million in bonds. 

The action means a savings of about $371,000 on the $1.5 million debt it owes, and cuts six years off the payment schedule, with the last payment due in 2045.  

The interest rate on the bonds will go from 3.51% to 2.2%. For the city, that means an 18.5% savings on its overall payment.
