On Monday night, City Council held their first meeting to discuss the Capital budget while inviting members of the public to attend.
City manager Dianne Hunter said there are too many projects to fit neatly within the budget laid out, so council had to analyze the projects before them and decide which ones should be bumped up to be completed in 2016.
Two particular projects were pointed out by Mayor Lori Ackerman as projects that should be considered for completion in 2016: The paving of 112th street from 100th and 102nd avenue, and the installation of a new generator for the City.
Mayor Ackerman pointed out that the generator is a smaller item on the budget, but not favourable to need to fix or replace.
She stressed that both those projects are continually pushed back on council’s agenda, and they need to be fixed soon or they may never get considered.
The next public meeting date is scheduled for December 14th.
