Recycling Center Projects Included In County CIP

A preliminary list of capital improvement projects for Rockbridge County calls for spending $1,378,394 in the next fiscal year.

The Board of Supervisors reviewed a draft of CIP proposed spending for the next five years at a work session on Nov. 25. The draft is to be reviewed again this Monday, Dec. 9, in anticipation of provisional adoption taking place on Jan. 13.

The CIP draft calls for spending $898,700 next year to develop refuse and recycling centers. These planned expenditures include $125,000 on improvements at the Murat Collection Center and $236,700 for the relocation of the Sallings Mountain Collection Center to an as-yet unidentified site in the Natural Bridge Station area. Also planned are expenditures of $179,000 each for developing new remote modified collection centers at unidentified sites in the Forge Road area, South River area and Walkers Creek/ Rockbridge Baths area.

The county plans to spend $50,000 in the next fiscal year to replace a boiler in the health department building that is more than 25 years old. An expenditure of $50,000 is planned next year to begin the process of procuring new municipal management software. A consultant would be hired to evaluate the current platforms and make recommendations on what new software system to purchase. Implementation costs of $376,302 are foreseen for each of the following two fiscal years.

Funding for the next general reassessment of property values is planned for fiscal years 2022 and 2023. Projected costs of $303,757 in FY22 and $248,528 in FY23 are planned. Reassessments are on a six-year cycle, with the next reassessment taking effect on Jan. 1, 2023.

Spending on replacing sheriff’s vehicles is projected at $322,728 next year, with similar amounts planned in each of the succeeding four years of the CIP period.
