“The $804,962.78 capital ordinance is based on the recommendations of the Capital Planning             Committee and is for those items recommended as high in priority by the Capital Planning               Committee,” added Committeeman Greg Burchette, liaison to the Capital Planning Committee.

"As we continue to operate under the guides of the ‘pay as you go’ plan, it proves as a savings to our taxpayers by not incurring interest expenses in future years through bonding for these purchases,” added  McCauley.
