Council prioritizes city projects
June 22, 2010
The city plans to start construction on the Issaquah Creek-area parks, install a fire-suppression system for the 911 center at the Issaquah Police Department and replace permit-tracking software for the municipal Building Department in the year ahead.
City Council members approved the Capital Improvement Plan — a sweeping program to update facilities, equipment and roads during the next six years. City staffers update the document each year, and then council members prioritize projects for funding and completion. The council approved the plan in a unanimous vote June 7.
Other top priorities include developing a disaster-recovery plan for information technology and pursuing a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant for flood mitigation.
