Capital Improvement Program Committee

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM COMMITTEE [CIP]

The Capital Improvements Program Committee is authorized for towns, such  as  Rye,  in  which  a  Master  Plan  has  been  created.  RSA  674:5-6.  The Committee  is  appointed  by  the  Board  of  Selectmen  and  is  charged  with  the preparation and recommendation of a long range program (five years or more) of town capital improvements. Capital is taken to mean items valued at $10,000.00 or more. The Committee members serve for unlimited terms. The comprehensive CIP plan     for   2013-2018  is         published           on the             Rye        Website           under  the   Capital Improvements Program Committee additional links section. http://www.town.rye.nh.us/Pages/RyeNH_BComm/CIP/2013_CIP_Plan.pdf.

The program may encompass current projects or future projects to be undertaken with federal, state, county, or local funds.

The purpose of the Capital Improvements Program is to assist the selectmen and the budget committee in their consideration and preparation of the annual budget. The Committee also prioritizes projects as to urgency. The plan includes a recommendation for the time sequence for implementation of the projects needed. The CIP Committee, based on input from the town’s departments and school board, classifies projects based on urgency, need, and adherence to the Master Plan. CIP planning serves to avoid spikes in the annual budgets.

The Committee’s recommendations may also include estimated costs for each project, along with probable operating and maintenance costs; estimated revenue, if applicable; and existing sources of funds or the need for additional sources of funds for the implementation of each project. The CIP Committee’s recommendations go the Board of Selectmen and the Budget Committee prior to preparation  of  the  next  year’s  annual  budget.  Capital  Improvements  Program planning is advisory only.

According to RSA 674:5, the CIP Committee shall include at least one member of the Planning Board (Phil Winslow) and the Budget Committee (Ned Paul and Ray Jarvis), and the Board of Selectmen. In addition, the Rye CIP Committee 2014-2019 includes a member of the Rye School Board (Jeanne Moynahan) and a member at large (Mae Bradshaw). The representatives from each participating board are chosen by those boards each year. Citizens interested in becoming a member of the CIP Committee should notify the Selectmen’s Office.

The CIP Committee generally meets in the Court Room at the Town Hall and sometimes at the Rye Public Library, depending upon scheduling. Meetings typically start in May, and continue for about four months, or until all town departments have presented to the Committee, and the CIP recommendations have been formulated. The meetings are open to the public. The current chair is Ray Jarvis at (603) 436-2137 or rkjarvis@myfairpoint.net
