WASHINGTON COUNTY-Washington County has received another loan payment from director Ron Maxwell, a week after county officials said he had stopped paying.
The county received $20,000 from Maxwell on Thursday, County Attorney John Martirano said.
The payment is Maxwell's third toward a $300,000 county loan in 2002 to help him film a Civil War movie called "The Last Full Measure." Because he didn't make the movie within three years, Maxwell had to repay the loan.
At 4.5 percent interest, Maxwell must pay back a total of about $340,000, according to Martirano. He now has paid about $60,000.
Maxwell filmed much of the Civil War movie "Gods and Generals" in Washington County in 2001. "The Last Full Measure" was going to be the third in a trilogy.
