2014-2019 Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) Adopted

What is a CIP? It's a flexible, five-year planning document that helps the Board of Commissioners forecast the Town’s future equipment, building and infrastructure needs.  Items included in the CIP generally have both a monetary value greater than $5,000 and a useful life expectancy greater than one year. Each project or expenditure is prioritized on both the departmental and organizational levels, and this information is used to help develop the annual Budget for the upcoming fiscal year. View the adopted 2014-2019 Capital Improvements Plan here.

Sanitation Services Schedule Change Effective April 1, 2014

Since the Town began providing in-house sanitation services in 2006, the dumpster facility behind the Town Services office has been available for use by Montreat residents on weekdays and on Saturday mornings as a supplement to curbside garbage and recycling collection. Effective April 1, 2014, the facility hours are now limited to Monday through Thursday year-round from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. to address continued problems with illegal dumping and unauthorized use.
