STEP 1: PLANNING THE PROJECT AND ESTABLISHING CAPITAL BUDGET

FORMS

  • No forms needed for this step.
The Capital Budget establishes projects for the upcoming year.

Examples of Capital Budget projects include the continual maintenance and/or reconstruction of existing infrastructure and construction of new infrastructure.

Each agency prioritizes projects and submits them for the Capital Budget process. Ultimately, the Mayor and Common Council may make modifications to the budget prior to the approval of the Capital Budget.

Once the Capital Budget is approved by the Common Council, the projects are established.

Note: There may be permits, approvals, and easements associated with the project. Please confirm what will be required and the related timelines. Contact Traffic Engineering, 266-4761, and Madison Metro, 266-4904, to discuss any traffic specifications that may be necessary.
