SALISBURY — The Salisbury City Council got its first look at the new five-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) this week.
The plan will cover FY15 through FY19 and includes big expenses for things like water and sewer, storm water management and street repair, though as a planning document none of those costs are set in stone yet.
In reviewing the CIP, Tom Stevenson, city administrator, focused Monday on the most immediate expenses expected in FY15. These include roughly $7.8 million in general fund requests, $68 million in water and sewer and $1.4 million in stormwater.
“As you can see, it’s a pretty hefty price tag for all of it,” he told the council.
