Fiscal year 2014 could bring new projects for the city. Council Members heard from department representatives who presented their capital improvement budgets during a Council workshop.
Bill Novak, the Director for Transportation Engineering and Development, has budgeted in four to six more electric vehicle-charging stations because of a flood of requests from residents.
Council members agree more stations should be installed if there is the demand, but are concerned about the costs.
“I’m all in favor of putting them in, but I think they need to be cost neutral to the residents,” says Councilman Grant Wehrli.
Other notable projects include a 5.9 million dollar project to replace existing streetlights with more cost efficient LED streetlights. Also in the Public Works budget is creating a centralized location for hazardous waste collection and recyclables.
City Council will vote on the capital improvement budget on February 19th.
