Capital Improvement Plan
The municipality's second Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is projected to cost $48 million and builds off the work accomplished in the preceding CIP. Improvements to crosswalks and roadways, the building of a new fire department and continued renovations to the Recreation Center — a property acquisition funded in the first CIP — are some of the projects on the list. There are projects and items not incorporated into the general operating budget. Funds for the second CIP are forecasted to come from grants, bonds and other funding streams.
(NOTE: Funds are allocated per year, and not in one sum to cover the entire five years.)
Municipal Council had discussions at their Sept. 1 meeting about what has been proposed for the CIP: 2021-2025. The plan was finalized at their Sept. 15 meeting. The CIP was amended on Jan. 29, 2021 to remove some items contingent on legacy funds, and insurance money from the Aug. 2020 flood that ravaged baseball fields and the recreation center have been incorporated.
The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) identified capital projects and equipment purchases during 2017-2021 using a $10 million fund to acquire property, improve parks, and begin renovating municipal hall.
