3 Manage Comprehensive Capital Improvement Program Ongoing In Process 2023-24: A Sanitary Sewer Master Plan was initiated by Public Works (with Engineering supporting) and is anticipated to be complete in early 2023. A request for proposals (RFP) is underway for the Water Master Plan, targeted for advertisement in December, anticipated award early 2023. A stormwater master plan request was not funded in 2022/23 adopted budget. It is recommended that master plans be initiated for all major infrastructure systems (such as water, storm, sanitary collections and treatment, roads, and facilities) and updated regularly. Master plan updates on a 5-year cycle can reduce the cost of each update by maintaining the plans and reducing the time between updates. The master plans can also become the major source of a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for the City that can have a rolling 5-year outlook for capital projects, greatly simplifying the budget process and allowing for better long-range prioritization of projects.
