Marshfield reviewing future capital improvements

by

MARSHFIELD, WI  (WSAU)  -  Work on the city of Marshfield’s capital improvement plan for 2014-2018 has started with a series of workshop-style meetings this week. The C.I.P. committee is made up of both city officials and community members, who consider requests from city department heads for project funding.

According to City Administrator Steve Barg, there are about $41 million in proposed projects that are being discussed. Funding for an emergency vehicle stoplight pre-emption system, maintenance projects at the UW-Marsshfield / Wood County campus, and repairs to Marshfield’s famous round barn are among the projects being considered.

Finance director Keith Strey says that the city could borrow up to $2.5 million annually, coupled with $3-million in borrowing for the library / senior center project in 2015, without raising the city’s current tax rate.

The committee will meet on the proposed funding plan again next Tuesday, and also on March 5th and 7th. Then in April, the city’s Common Council will vote on the committee’s recommendations.
