An ambitious $100.6 million capital improvement plan that was tabled two weeks ago is back on the Longview City Council agenda for Thursday.
The five-year plan, which identifies a total of 59 projects, includes seven totaling $6.3 million for 2012-13.
Among the projects:
<ul> <li>$1.2 million for bridge and culvert improvements;</li> <li>$300,000 drainage improvement project;</li> <li>$800,000 in wastewater system improvements;</li> <li>$730,000 for a sludge thickening project at the wastewater treatment plant</li> <li>$1.825 million co-digestion project at the wastewater improvement plant;</li> <li>$675,000 project to install flow monitoring devices at the water treatment plants; and $800,000 worth of water system improvements.</li> </ul>
Funding for the 2012-13 projects will be available from existing sales tax revenues and money generated from the city's utility capital reserve funds.
If the five-year program is adopted, it will be for planning purposes only. Projects included in the 2012-2013 cycle, would be approved for construction.
The council also will consider renaming the commercial kitchen at the Maude Cobb Activity Complex the "Gerard Cace Kitchen," in honor of renowned restaurateur Gerard Cace, who died July 19.
Also to be considered is a resolution appointing members to the Longview Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors.
