FOXHALL REQUESTING THE COUNTY TO BACKI $15 MILLION IN BONDS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE

There will be a presentation on Foxhall’s request for the County to back $15 million for the installation of infrastructure to and on the proposed resort at the Work Session Monday, May 6, 2019, at 10 am.   Afterwards, a presentation from the consultant hired by the County will present the financial effect to the county IF the BOC votes to approve the request.  This is not a public hearing, but, as always, anyone wishing to address the Board at the start of a Work Session meeting must sign up to do so about 20-15 minutes prior to meeting.  NO VOTE will take place on this matter Monday or Tuesday this week, but this item will most likely be on the Agenda for a vote at the 6 pm BOC Meeting on May 21.
