Capital Infrastructure Program

Capital Infrastructure Program

In the beginning, the CIP (Capital Infrastructure Program) main goal was to improve the quality of the City streets.  Prior to the CIP and the one cent sales tax approval the City did not have a proper funding source to cover the extreme cost of the street rehabilitation overlays, and drainage improvements.  Projects and acquisitions of the CIP forecast period became the capital budget for that budget year.  Most capital projects initially entered the CIP in one of the later planning years of the forecast period and then progressed toward completion.  This process created a system for approvals and completions of the capital projects such as Plum Street Drainage from South 12th Street to the Canal.  The project consisted of installing large diameter pipe on each side of the road with catch basins and new concrete drives.  The CIP funded the completion of the Tower Armand Connector and several smaller projects around the City. 

Project Management:

  • Provides routine inspections of all City funded projects to ensure compliance with project specifications, and design plans.
  • Encourage successful low bidders to comply with all applicable OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requirements regardless of funding source.
  • Review projects, cost estimates, and final designs.
  • Identifies probable sources of financing, per project.
  • Evaluates, prioritizes and schedules projects and acquisitions
  • Review the potential impact of projects and acquisition on the operating budget

Capital projects are defined as major, non-recurring investments in physical infrastructure and facilities that exceed $50,000 in cost, require more than 12 months to complete and have a useful life for many years. The purchase and replacement of vehicles and technology equipment are not considered capital project, but do meet the $3,000 capitalization threshold and are considered capital assets and are necessary. Investments in streets, sidewalks and utilities lines qualify based on the cost of the entire program, not necessarily individual projects.
