The draft report can be found here on the Town website. The CIPC will meet once more on August 21st at 1pm before the August 28th public hearing.
As per the draft report "The sum total of all projects recommended is $10,816,114.00 for the six year program (capital spending year plus five planning years) with $1,589,636.00 of this programmed for 2015. These figures are presented in comparison to last year’s report totals of $9,257,676.00 along with $1,373,535.00 that was recommended to be programmed for 2014."
This was my first year on the CIPC and despite many meetings and presentations, the process ran very smoothly. This was due in great part to Richard Brown who had chaired the committee until he resigned at the end of June and the late Peter Jensen who was there from the beginning. The CIPC would not be as efficient and effective without their contributions.
Next steps after the public hearing is to present the report to the BoS in September and then it's on to the budget preparation process this fall.
Keep in mind that the CIPC while a statutory committee, still only makes recommendations to the governing body who in turn will then determine the final budget. Then it's up to the legislative body at Town Meeting to approve, reduce, or vote down.
