Public Hearing Notice – High School Financing

The Board of Commissioners for the County of Watauga, North Carolina (the “County”) is considering whether to enter into one or more installment financing contracts (collectively, whether one or more, the “Contract”) pursuant to Section 160A-20 of the General Statutes of North Carolina for the purpose of providing funds, together with any other available funds, to refinance the County’s installment payment obligations under an installment financing contract pursuant to which the County financed the acquisition, construction, equipping and furnishing of a new high school known as Watauga High School (the “High School”).

The County would be obligated to make installment payments under the Contract in a principal amount not to exceed $63,250,000.  The County will secure its obligations under the Contract by a deed of trust that grants a lien on the site on which the High School is located and the improvements thereon.  The High School is located at 300 Go Pioneers Drive, Boone, North Carolina.  On payment by the County of all installment payments due under the Contract any lien on such property securing the County’s obligations under the Contract will terminate.
