Capital Improvements Committee
The Board of Supervisors established the Capital Improvements Committee (CIC) in 2012, by adopting an amendment from Supervisor Dimitrijevic to the 2013 Milwaukee County Recommended Budget. The Committee is responsible for evaluating all capital projects that may be included in the Capital Improvements Budget and annually developing a five-year capital improvements plan that employs a detailed set of criteria to determine the priority of each project. Concurrently in 2012, the Board of Supervisors amended the Milwakee County Code of General Ordinances by creating and adopting Chapter 36, further codifying the responsibility of the CIC to "develop, maintain and update a long-term capital improvements program for the county’s construction and maintenance of infrastructure and facilities."
