Capital Improvement Program

What if a desired project that was identified for funding doesn’t actually get implemented?

One example of this potential occurrence is the following:  Capital improvement project types (e.g. Repaving Roads) that cover multiple facilities (e.g. individual streets maintained by Bernalillo County) are capped at the amount listed for the present 2012-2014 bond cycle.  Users of this funding - the Public Works Roadway Operations & Maintenance Department - prioritize individual streets for repaving based on households served, # of work orders per road segment, remaining service life of road segment, existence of a school bus route on the road segment, and the functional classification of the road segment. 
If repaving a specific road does not cost as much as estimated, then excess funds are rolled over to repave the next priority road. Conversely, if repaving a specific road costs more than estimated, then additional funds are drawn from the Repaving Roads bond item.  This process is repeated until as many high priority roads as possible are repaved and all funds are exhausted.
The same situation applies to park and playground redevelopment at county recreational facilities whereby approved general obligation bond funding may not cover all needs.
