As part of the Fiscal Year 18-19 Budget, the city is planning a very aggressive capital improvement plan for the utility fund, replacing several major electric and water system components. The capital improvement projects will enhance the reliability of utility services, reduce power outages, and provide improved infrastructure for our residents. The City is in the middle of the budget process with a few milestone budget dates remaining. Citizen participation is encouraged throughout the workshops, public meeting, and hearings for the budget. The City Council conducted work sessions to review the budget on February 21st and March 15th. On April 10th City Council will approve the tentative budget and May 22 the final public hearing and adoption of the budget. The draft Fiscal Year 18-19 Budget includes the following utility projects:
