Supervisor Bosworth and City Council approve Capital Plan 2022-26
Supervisor Judi Bosworth, council member Mariann Dalimonte and city council unanimously approved the city’s 2022-2026 five-year capital plan, which includes infrastructure improvements, parks and road repaving. The $116,829,854 plan will be funded by a combination of loans, grants and existing cash.
“The next five-year capital plan will continue to improve the city’s infrastructure and facilities to ensure its useful life for future generations,” Supervisor Bosworth said. “We have carefully designed the capital plan to reduce the amount of outstanding debt and the burden on taxpayers.”
“Our capital plan serves as a roadmap for the city’s public works projects,” said councilman Dalimonte. “I have worked hard to ensure that important initiatives are planned for our district.”
