Background: In August 2013, the Planning Commission (PC) created the Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) to develop a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for the Town. The purpose of a CIP is to ensure that capital expenditures are identified and planned in advance so that the associated cost are also planned and budgeted for. By planning for capital expenditures, the financial impacts on Town taxpayers can be stabilized. In May 2015, the PC disbanded the original CIC and the Selectboard (SB) established it as a standing committee under the SB. A description of the process developed by the CIC to guide its work can be viewed at: East Montpelier Capital Improvement Planning Process

Capital Projects: The CIC inventories and evaluates the Town’s capital assets, including existing buildings, vehicles, heavy equipment and paved highways. This information is used to establish a schedule of the costs for major maintenance and/or replacement. The CIC continues to solicit information from all Town residents about capital projects that are envisioned for the future. The parameters for considering a project for CIP are: (1) a minimum of a 5-year life span and (2) a minimum cost of $5,000. We are interested in projects at any stage of development from a conceptual idea to a shovel-ready project. The CIC assists the sponsor(s) in completing the CIC Future Capital Projects Questionnaire to be used in the evaluation and consideration for inclusion in the CIP. If you have questions, please contact Town Treasurer Don Welch at eastmonttr@comcast.net or 223-3313 x207.

Capital Budget: The CIC continually reviews and revises the CIP and uses it to develop a capital budget amount, which is presented to the SB for inclusion in the next year’s Town budget. In December and January, the SB reviews the CIP and capital budget amount developed and recommended by the CIC. The SB determines the capital contribution to be included in the next year’s budget and adopts a CIP that reflects that contribution (see adopted versions of CIP below). The CIP is used by the SB to guide its use of the Capital Reserve Fund.
