When they met Tuesday, Leavenworth city commissioners reviewed a proposed Capital Improvements Program.

The CIP outlines various street repair, building maintenance and other improvement projects and equipment purchases planned for a five-year period.

The Leavenworth City Commission reviews and updates the CIP each year. This year, they are reviewing planned expenditures for 2019-2023.

Among the projects being added to the CIP are a Thornton Street reconstruction project, repairs to the Three Mile Creek Trail and putting together a 10-year comprehensive land use plan.

Commissioners took no action on the proposed CIP. Tuesday’s meeting was considered a study session.

Commissioners plan to discuss the CIP again in two weeks during another study session.

“There is no state mandate on when this is passed,” City Manager Paul Kramer told commissioners.

Kramer reviewed the proposed CIP during Tuesday’s meeting. He said the funding sources for CIP projects include sales tax revenue and general obligation bonds.

One project that was listed in the CIP but not scheduled for a specific year is the renovation of the restrooms at the Leavenworth Public Library.

Kramer estimated this project would cost about $25,000.

Commissioners expressed support for following through with the project.

Kramer said the project is being added for the year 2020.

Also Tuesday, Assistant City Manager Taylour Tedder previewed the look of the redesigned website for the city government.

“We’re really excited about it,” Tedder said.

He said the new website design will be mobile device friendly.

He said the city may go live with the redesigned website in March.

“It could be before that,” he said.

He said the website for the Leavenworth Convention and Visitors Bureau also is being redesigned.
