The Cypress City Council held a public hearing on the City’s capital improvement program (CIP) from fiscal year 2012-13 through fiscal year 2018-19 at it regular meeting on June 11.
The capital improvement program is projected ahead for seven years, although the City Council can only adopt a budget for a single year. Thus anything beyond fiscal year 2012-13 will be addressed by future Councils. However, the seven-year project serves as a guide to develop long-term funding and expenditures.
The seven-year CIP projects expenditures of about $57 million dollars covering street pavement, traffic and transportation, storm drains, sanitary severs, concrete within street right-of-way, street irrigation and planting, street tress and public facility projects.
For fiscal year 2012-2013, proposed expenditures of about $8.2 million allocated as follows:
|traffic and transportation||$255,676|
|concrete within street right-of-way||$1,267,000|
|street irrigation and planting||$300,000|
|public facility projects||$256,924|
No one spoke during the public comment portion of the hearing.
When the item was brought back to the Council for discussion, Councilman Leroy Mills requested that the item be amended to request staff to ask the contractor in charge of the in-progress Lincoln Ave. project not to restore the two bow-outs removed to improve traffic flow during construction.
Council concurred on the instruction to staff.
The vote was unanimous to approve the adoption of the proposed 2012-13 capital improvement program.
