Monroe County plans to spend more than $400-million on projects. But before officials decide where and how to use that money, officials are getting input from you.
Thursday, the county planning board held a public information meeting on proposed capital improvement plans, which include parks, highways, water and sewer systems and other facilities.
The Associate Planner for the department, Paul Johnson, tells News10NBC it's important for them to prioritize areas that may need improvements before others, so they can decide where money should go first.
“The needs don't go away. We do have a set of infrastructure in the form of buildings, highways and our airport, things that our county taxpayers use every day, and expect a certain level of service from those facilities. So it's our obligation to sort through those needs to set the priorities and to fund them to the best of our ability.
The money is funded from County, State, Federal, and Special District Sources.
