During last nights special meeting of the Cheshire Town Council, concerns were raised about older capital projects remaining open for an unending period of time.
Members of the Cheshire Board of Education and Town Councilors met to discuss capital projects that are still open, some of which are more than a decade old. Because of the age, Councilor James Sima suggested that some projects may have been forgotten even though funding is available.
Councilor David Schrumm requested that Town Manager Michael Milone and the Town’s Finance Department review all open capital projects and see which can be closed. He also suggested there be a time limit on projects, noting that five years may be enough time to open and close a capital improvement request.
The time limit suggested could give certain Town Departments the incentive to finish improvements that have been left open for some time, some Councilors suggested.
The Town Council will begin their five-year capital budget review in July.
