Buffalo's City Council, at their Tuesday meeting, adopted their new Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) for 2013-2018 on a 3-0 vote.
The CIP is a tool used in planning for various projects or purchases that need to be made by the council in the coming years, essentially a “wish list” in which the council members and department heads can plan and choose from when budgeting available funds in the future.
City Planner Zach Montgomery explained the CIP further.
Montgomery explained that most of these projects will not be fully paid for with city funds, and he explained where the rest of the funding will come from.
The council voted 3-0 to adopt the 2013-2018 five-year CIP, with councilmembers Russ Humphrey and Dave Long abstaining from the vote.
