Capital Improvement Program​

Our Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is intended to promote a measured approach to long range asset planning. The CIP is a document designed to analyze funding needs and fiscal expectations over the next two to three years. Appropriations for projects occurring under the plan are made on an annual basis.
