To help identify the needs of our community and to evaluate the state of our infrastructure, the City formed the Asset Management Program Advisory Committee (AMPAC) in March 2014. The committee continues to provide input into setting priorities for the Asset Management Program, which guides efforts to operate and maintain the City’s infrastructure in its natural and built environment.
The City Council approved the Infrastructure, Facilities and Equipment Expenditure Plan on December 6, 2016. The Plan outlines how the $178 million in sale tax funds projected to be collected during the ten-year time frame are planned to be allocated. The half-cent sales tax is considered a general tax and can be used for any lawful municipal purpose. The City has established a separate fund to track and account for income and expenses.
The following are the highest priority items for funding: • Pave, maintain and repair neighborhood streets and fix potholes
• Upgrade or replace aging police, fire and 9-1-1 emergency response facilities, vehicles and equipment
• Replace storm drains to prevent sinkholes
• Upgrade irrigation systems to conserve water and save energy
• Make essential repairs to older libraries, senior centers and recreation centers
• Improve our Traffic Signal Systems
• Repair our Sports Fields and Courts and Park Infrastructure
