Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Council Member Mariann Dalimonte, and the Town Board unanimously approved the Town’s 2022-2026 five-year capital plan, which includes improvements to infrastructure, parks upgrades and road repaving. The $116,829,854 plan will be funded with a combination of borrowing, grants and existing cash.
“The upcoming five-year capital plan will continue to improve the town’s infrastructure and facilities to ensure its useful life for future generations,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We carefully designed the capital plan to reduce the amount of outstanding debt and burden to taxpayers.”
“Our capital plan serves as a road map for the town’s public works projects,” stated Council Member Dalimonte. “I have worked hard to ensure that significant initiatives are being planned for our district.”
