At the top of Soldotna’s major capital project’s list is a $950,000 request to assist the city with repair, rehab and construction of its city streets and utilities.
Soldotna City Council members got their first look at the list on during Wednesday’s council meeting.
The repair and rehabilitation project is at the top of the list, but it is not the most expensive request the city will make. Also on the list is a $2.1 million dollar request for funding to build a new maintenance shop and another $1.6 million request to extend water and sewer down Centennial Park Road.
The city also made a separate list of what City Manager Mark Dixson called “minor” capital projects or those that would cost less than $100,000. These include funding requests for things like LED lights on a pedestrian path along Redoubt Avenue and Marydale Drive, better wifi in public buildings, replacing police vehicle cameras and buying new software for city departments.
“They’re simply put in, in case there are monies available in particular categories through the legislature,” Dixson said. “They can look at the minor capital list and see if any fit those concerns.”
City Council will hold a public hearing and vote on the list during its next meeting on Nov. 10.
