Over the next five years, there will be a proposed $259.09 million in capital expenses. This is almost double the $139.48 million in the proposed 2014 capital budget expenses.
“There’s an unprecedented five-year capital budget,” said Brian Acker, director of financial services. “Certainly it’s the largest by far in the City of Moose Jaw’s history.”
On Monday, city administration presented the 2016-2020 capital budget estimates to council. It was referred to budget committee for further discussion. The capital budget meeting is scheduled for Dec. 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Herb Taylor Room at the Moose Jaw Public Library.
In the estimates, many items that were previously in the unfunded capital budget are now included in the funded capital plan.
