Council postpones vote on capital improvement plan

The Eatonville Town Council unanimously voted to table a resolution adopting the 2023-27 Capital Improvement Plan until its Feb. 13 meeting.

Councilmember Bill Dunn said he was concerned that items on the transportation improvement plan passed by the council in 2019 were not on the six-year capital improvement plan.

“One of the concerns I have with the street projects is the transportation improvement plan is still in effect through 2024,” he said at the Jan. 23 council meeting. “So, if we’re going to adopt a capital improvement plan that deviates from that mission, so to speak, then there are a lot of projects that aren’t done on there that probably could be added to this, unless council wanted to modify that 2019 transportation improvement plan.”

Dunn said this could possibly lead to a substantial increase in utilities rates for customers.

The $23.7 million capital improvement plan is a comprehensive series of street, water, electric, stormwater, parks, solid waste, sewer, facilities and airport projects.
