The Foxwood Estates General Obligations Bonds, dated January 27, 2005 were issued in the principal amount of $345,000.

Accomplishments, Goals, and Objectives
The County certifies and collects a mill levy on all properties that fall within the boundaries of the district for the purpose of covering the annual principal and interest bond payments. The district's share of special ownership tax (SOT) collections have historically been used to make additional principal payments when possible. In 2020 and again in 2021, an additional $10,000 was applied to bond principal. Final payment of the district's bond is currently projected to occur in 2026, three years ahead of the original payment schedule. The Board foresees an opportunity for further prepayments in 2024 and potential retirement in 2025. This opportunity will be confirmed furing the mid-year budget review in 2023.
