The City Council adopted the Capital Improvement Program 2017-2021 on June 21, 2016. Click on the link below to see the document.


The Capital Improvement Program is a summary of the priority infrastructure projects for the next five years.  The CIP was developed by evaluating all of the City's infrastructure components, including the streets, water system, sanitary sewers and storm sewers.  Then by looking at the infrastructure as a whole, projects were identified that make the most impact in the City based on current revenue and funding availability.

The CIP is intended to be updated every one to two years.  As funding levels, priorities or community needs change, the program can be added to or subtracted from as necessary.  The Program provides structure and a guideline for needed infrastructure improvements.  It is a tool for budgeting the City's resources, and a transparent plan for the community to understand where funding comes from and how that money is being spent.
