In last week’s newsletter, I informed the community that the City’s Finance and Economic Development Committee approved the staff report and recommendations for the Additional Infrastructure Funding for the Renewal of Tax-Supported Assets including an additional $730,000 to go toward Stittsville infrastructure projects.
Now, I am happy to share that this funding was approved at today’s City Council meeting. A total of $10 million of additional funding will be put toward infrastructure renewal projects across the city.
The approved list of projects for tax-supported assets includes roads, sidewalks, multi-use pathways, parks and buildings across the city. The list is in addition to the projects identified in Budget 2018. The additional funding allocates $6.66 million to renew roads, $3 million to renew buildings and parks, and $340,000 to renew sidewalks and pathways.
