And starting this year we are adding a new pilot program, $20,000 for expense funding! Along with the usual $1.5 million for capital projects we will take ideas for expense projects which must have the following criteria:
•Must be implemented by the City or an eligible non-profit organization that is eligible to receive City Council expense funds
•One-time disbursement, no expectation of renewal, for equipment, furniture, or trainings
•New and innovative programs
We will accept projects between $5,000 and $10,000. They will follow the same process as the capital projects and get voted on in April.
As in years past the city capital projects must be something built, they must have an expected life span of at least five years, and cost over $35,000. If you're not sure about that submit the idea anyway and our budget delegates will figure it out.
