Adoption of the Triennial Capital Expenses Plan for the Years 2021-2023

November 16, 2020

Municipal Council adopted its Triennial Capital Expenses Plan (TCEP) for the years 2021, 2022 and 2023.This plan allows for the planning and prioritization of future investments over the next three years.

The TCEP adopted includes total investments of $20,258,385 divided over three years as follows:

2021: $16,192,500

2022: $2,779,040

2023: $1,286,845

 

“For this TCEP, Council made choices with the goal of increasing the debt as little as possible, while keeping our infrastructure up to date. Accordingly, we had to make difficult choices in order to adopt a realistic and balanced three-year plan based on our needs and our ability to pay. In addition, with the increase in revenues generated by new developments in the center-village, Council decided it was important that we pay as many expenses as possible out of the operating budget.” Caryl Green, mayor
