Page 24 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, JunE 7, 2024 PLAN | FROM PAGE 1 term,” said Van Campen. “I see things missing from the plan, like a Middle School,” Councillor-at-Large Stephanie Smith said. “I understand this is just a plan and not an appropriation, but I can’t vote for this.” The total CIP budget is $53,033,741, of which $48,506,424 is slated to be borrowed; $5,553,217 is from grants; $904,100 is from the Capital Improvement Stabilization Fund and $70,000 is from the Operating Budget.

Among other things, the Operating Budget will fund portable police radios. Chief Financial Officer Eric Demas told the Councillors that the totals were so large because “the Mayor is trying to be transparent and show everything department heads are requesting. In years past he put forward CIPs based on what he planned to spend, but he wants to share everything he sees with the Council to make sure it’s aware of all projects the City is facing. It’s not likely he’ll put forth all the projects this year, but wanted to make sure the Council is aware of what he sees.” Demas added that the Mayor also hopes “to solicit feedback from the City Council as to what they may be interested in and projects that don’t get any traction, knowing that some projects require special meetings.” As for what might be funded, Demas said the funding for some projects might aff ect others, but items funded through the Capital Improvement Stabilization Fund will probably be prioritized. “As projects get closer to approval, the Mayor will send them forward to the Council,” he predicted. He also noted that the Council sometimes gets on board with projects it may not prioritize when aid becomes available. Noting the high total slated for borrowing, Van Campen asked, “Is there a rule-of-thumb as to how much of the budget should be debt, say 5%?” “5% is the standard rule, but you have to look at the overall budget and what fi xed costs are,” Demas answered. In comments in the last month, the Mayor’s Chief of Staff , Erin Deveney, has said increases in fi xed costs are a major factor in formulating the City’s budgets. - LEGAL NOTICE - COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 10-U Commerce Way Woburn, MA 01801 (781) 865-4000 Docket No. MI24P3017EA Estate of: MARY C.
