12/16/2020 | Posted in: News
Careful consideration and input were taken to develop the FY 2021 Budget and another aggressive list of capital/special project funding activities was identified and programed into the Budget. Click for details...
Between the Finance Committee, Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, staff and the Board of Aldermen, ideas for projects and priorities were developed and incorporated into the new fiscal year Budget which began on October 1, 2020. For FY 2021, greater attention and emphasis is being placed on maintenance and upkeep of municipal assets including property, buildings, streets and stormwater systems.
City staff have called attention to the City’s public infrastructure having reached a critical stage in their useful life, the streets and stormwater collection systems are now between 20-30 years old. The maintenance requirements are increasing exponentially and, in an effort, to keep pace with the increasing demands, the City has increased funding for roadway maintenance by utilizing fund reserves as a stop-gap measure. This approach will help maintain and preserve existing pavement conditions but will not be sustainable long-term. Additionally, the planning and community engagement initiatives identified in FY 2020 that were postponed due to COVID-19 have been carried forward to FY 2021, these include a Community Wide Survey, Citywide Park & Trail Master Planning and Facility Needs Assessment. Also, implementation of technological improvements are planned along with pursuing the development of marketing and promotional strategies for the community.
