' <br />Almond Grove <br />A question was asked as to why only design work for Almond Grove is included in the FY 2010/11 <br />Capital Budget. The Council has. adopted reconstruction of the Almond Grove street system as a two- <br />year Town priority, During next fiscal year, decisions will be made as to the tuning and type of <br />reconstruction (e.g., asphalt vs. concrete) as well as the funding required to actually do the work. Please <br />note that developer-paid traffic mitigation funds are restricted to capacity enhancing projects and cannot <br />be applied to residential street projects such as Almond Grove. Further, our existing street improvement <br />projects are typically allocated to other higher priority collector, arterial and neighborhood projects. <br />Nonetheless, other sources of potential funding, including the sale of Town-owned assets, will be <br />considered during the next year as a potential funding source for this Council-established priority. <br />Management Information S. stems MIS) <br />A question was asked about moderate increases to printer costs in the MIS program.
