Cities use capital project funding to improve city roads


The cities of Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake recently adopted annual budgets that will help each city accommodate for growth and aging facilities. Transportation remains a top project for each of the cities, with most of a city’s improvement funds going to road projects and transportation initiatives.

Capital improvement project, or CIP, funds are approved in a city’s annual budget and include the anticipated capital project costs for the next five fiscal years. Colleyville Assistant City Manager Adrienne Lothery defined a CIP for Colleyville as a project with a budget of at least $50,000 and with a useful life of at least five years.

Colleyville and Southlake adopted CIP budgets funded with cash in the fiscal year 2018-19 budget, and Grapevine has funded most of its capital projects through bond sales.
