Here are some highlights from the docs posted on the agenda (errors corrected):
- Over $10 million of projects including $2.5 million for the Potts Rd connector ($500k in Town money $2m in Federal dollars) and $2.9 million for a new fire station.
- About $1.5 million more is on the Town wishlist for smaller items.
- Most of the proposed spending is front-loaded to be spent by 2015. That's well before the Town will know if there is any real and lasting improvment with Mi-Connection.
- Staffing proposals could add hundreds of thousands in recurring expenses to the Town budget.
Taxpayers watch out. This one could leave a mark.
Correction: The Town is looking at $10 million in new projects, not $8 million.
