1. Is there funding in place to pay for construction? (update 8/9/2019)
Yes. Funds for construction were approved for fiscal year 2020, which began on July 1, 2019.
2. How has funding changed since the original design was completed?
Resolution 005-15 Recordation Tax Reallocation was adopted in March 2015 which established a dedicated fund for restoration projects. This dedicated fund allows the County to sell bonds to fund these projects. Prior to establishing the dedicated fund, funding for these projects competed with other agencies such as the Sheriffs Office and Schools for general funds.
