Forum to Collect Ideas for City of San Angelo's Capital Improvement Plan
The City will also host a forum to gather public input on the CIP at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18, at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive. The forum will air live on SATV, Suddenlink channel 17, and will re-air daily in the weeks afterward. It will also be posted on the City’s website at cosatx.us and its YouTube channel at youtube.com/CityofSanAngeloTx.
The city charter requires that a five-year CIP be published and available to citizens. The plan can be read in hard copy form at City Hall, 72 W. College Ave., or online at cosatx.us/budget. The charter mandates that public input be sought to ensure the CIP reflects citizens’ needs and wishes.
Once the City Council approves the plan this winter, it will help shape next year’s budget. CIP projects have a wide range of funding sources. Those include grants, designated revenue, debt instruments, fund balances, and sales and property taxes.
