The City of Arkansas City will gather citizen input on possible future projects and form a short-term citizen committee to process those ideas in early 2017.
As part of the planning for the 2018 budget and the 10-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), the CIP committee will help staff to prioritize projects and funding, as well as provide another source of ideas.
The recommendations of the CIP committee will be presented to the city commission, along with staff recommendations, as part of the 2018 budget process in the spring and summer of 2017.
There will be an insert in the December utility bills that asks residents to submit their ideas for projects they would like to see the city complete in future years.
