Capital Budget

The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five year plan that identifies major capital needs. The county updates this plan each year as part of the annual budget process.

The CIP identifies projects that have been designed to support existing or projected needs in the following areas: transportation infrastructure (road and bridges), county facilities, land improvement/development/acquisition, equipment purchases and technology. It is the county’s principal planning tool, and is designed and strategically used to achieve growth and development as envisioned in the county’s Departmental Business Plans.
