Central sewer is top priority in Capital Improvements Plan

by Tom Chillemi

Bringing sewer service to areas of Middlesex County remains the top priority of the county Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for years 2018-22, which was approved by the Middlesex Board of Supervisors (BOS) on February 6. The latest CIP estimates investing $15.5 million in sewer, with $5.1 million being allocated over each of three years starting in 2019.

The CIP is a tool to assist the board of supervisors in developing budgets and with long-range planning for facilities with a useful life of more than 5 years and costs of $50,000 or more. Operating expenses are not part of the CIP.

Being listed on the CIP does not guarantee funding. “The CIP is strictly advisory,” states the CIP.

The second biggest expense in the CIP is $8.8 million for renovation of Middlesex High School.
