To 1:30PM ~~ Then they will deserve defeat.
Not a problem. They will just float another CIP some time later in the year to cover that part of the budget covering those improvements needed. It would be wise to consider the need for these are improvements made to existing infrastructure. Also remember what Walts did with the 2000 CIP when he eliminated necessary up grades from the original estimated cost to cover all recommended improvement for a total 245 M fearing that it would not pass putting his plan for the APAC In danger of becoming reality.. This action led to the necessary repairs to existing Windows etc at the time, to become replacements a few years later at a considerably higher costs to taxpayersWe should learn from this and not let this happen by again rejecting improvements to existing components only to again have to pay for the higher costs of replacement which is sure to happen as defective unsafe equipment does not get better with age.
To 10:51AM ~~ Capital improvements haven't been part of the regular budget in years! For the most part, neither have repairs, thus the need for voting on these projects separately. Except for the ridiculous stadium project, ALL have been approved.
