David F. Menz, a founding member of the firm, has worked extensively in public finance, real estate transactions, corporate law, municipal law and non-profit organizations. Mr. Menz has worked on every type of public financing done in Arkansas, including financings for school districts, state agencies, institutions of higher learning, airports, general obligation and sales and use tax bonds, all municipal utilities, including water, sewer, electric and solid waste disposal, healthcare, including hospitals and retirement facilities, improvement districts, industrial development revenue bonds, and bonds for single and multi-family housing, computer systems, energy conservation systems, and 9-1-1 emergency response systems. Mr. Menz has been involved in several innovative financings in the State of Arkansas. He was bond counsel for the property owners’ improvement district that developed and built Chenal Parkway in Little Rock, a ten-mile, four-lane, median divided road connecting Interstate 630 to Highway 10 in west Little Rock. He completed the financing for the first federally guaranteed loan to an Arkansas rural hospital. Mr. Menz has been able to extend the transmission lines of two major water utilities at no cost to the utilities by providing water to a retirement village and a major industry, each of which paid for the extensions.
