The City Council is hosting a public hearing on Monday, April 9, 7:00 p.m., in the Council Chambers for the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for fiscal years 2019-2023.
The city updates its 5-year CIP every year. The CIP includes projects such as construction of sidewalks, installation of park amenities, street resurfacing and improvements to the stormwater system. Funding for projects comes from the city's half-cent capital improvement sales tax, grants, and transfers from the general fund. The CIP process includes: 1) input from residents, elected and appointed officials and city staff; 2) preparation of the draft CIP by city staff; 3) review of the CIP by the Planning & Zoning Commission and Finance Committee; 4) a public hearing; and 5) final adoption by the City Council.
Please contact Sharon Stott, Assistant City Administrator, at [email protected] or (314) 872-2516 with any questions regarding the CIP.
