Annual Synopsis of Authority Activities

 
During the first 3-years (2013 – 2015) there was no tax increment to be captured and no OWA-LDFA revenue collected. Therefore, the Authority did not complete any projects during the first 5-years. After capturing 3 consecutive years (2016 – 2018) of tax increment revenue, the OWA-LDFA accumulated a meaningful sum of money. Going into the 2018 construction season, OWA-LDFA had unrestricted cash reserves of approximately $293,485.89. During 2018 OWA-LDFA expended $144,924.66 for the reconstruction of Pride Road.
