PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

AMENDMENTS TO FY05-10 CIP

In the second year of the Biennial CIP cycle, few changes to the CIP adopted last year are anticipated. Amendments are considered within a framework of amendment criteria. Examples of projects amended since May 27, 2004, are highlighted below, sorted by amendment criteria.

Leverage significant non-County funds

  • Burtonsville Fire Station Addition
  • Cost Sharing: MCG
  • Long Branch Village Center Improvements
  • White Ground Road Bridge

Address urgent health or safety concerns

  • 6th District Police Station
  • Animal Shelter
  • Clarksburg Fire Station
  • Shady Grove Access Bike Path
  • Upper County Pool Renovation

School capacity

  • Broad Acres Elementary School Addition

Significant opportunity, which will be lost unless taken at this time

  • Land Acquisition: MCPS

Technical amendment to implement policy decisions

  • Ride On Fleet Expansion

Schedule Changes

  • For FY06-10, schedules for numerous approved CIP projects were adjusted to maintain programmed debt levels within spending affordability limits in the CIP; and to provide $30 million in previously-approved CIP PAYGO to the Operating Budget.

WSSC FY06-11 CIP

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is a Bi-County agency (Montgomery and Prince George's Counties). While Montgomery County has adopted a Biennial CIP process, Prince George's County reviews its CIP annually. Therefore, a new, Bi-County CIP for WSSC is adopted by both Counties each year.

FISCAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • WSSC water and sewer rates increase by 2.5 percent.
  • PAYGO (pay-as-you-go) funding of $30 million is redirected from the CIP to fund the FY06 Operating Budget.
  • State funding is provided for school construction, expansion of the Montgomery College Takoma Park campus, Strathmore Hall Arts Center and the Montgomery County Detention Center.
  • The CIP provides modest set-asides for upcoming capital investment needs for which planning is not complete.
  • Revenue assumptions for recordation tax, transportation and schools impact tax, and state aid for school construction are adjusted to reflect current projections.
