What is a bond?
The term bond can mean several things. In this case, the County may accept collateral from a developer to ensure the construction of public improvements like roads or it may guarantee that a construction site can be stabilized to prevent erosion and environmental degradation. The developer could be someone building hundreds of houses, an office building, or it could be your neighbor build a garage in the backyard. If construction is still occurring in your neighborhood it is probable that the County still holds one or more bonds for the project.
