In 2014 the voters of Solis City authorized the construction of a new swimming pool for a total cost of no more that $4 million. The voters also approved the issuance of $4 million of 20-year, 5% general obligation serial bonds to be repaid by a special property tax. Interest on these bonds is payable annually on June 30. On June 30, 2014, the city sold the bonds at 101 and signed contracts for the construction of the swimming pool. Principal payments of $200,000 are due each June 30, beginning in 2015. If the property tax revenue is not sufficient to make the necessary principal and interest payments, the city is obligated to transfer the necessary monies from the general fund to the debt service fund. The city does not formally incorporate budgetary entries in the debt service fund but it does use encumbrance accounting for control purposes.
