Capital Budget Policy

a. The City has a Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that is designed to construct and maintain infrastructure to support existing residences and businesses and future development. The CIP identifies the estimated cost of each project including administration, design, development and implementation, and operating costs once the projects are completed. The CIP identifies potential funding sources for each proposed capital project. When appropriate, the CIP identifies outside funding sources such as State and federal funds and leverages these funding sources with public money to help meet the highest priority community needs. 

b. The funding for the first year of each five-year CIP is appropriated as a component of the annual operating budget. 

c. Funding for future projects identified in the five-year CIP which has not been secured or legally authorized is subject to change.
