Grass Valley City Council passed Capital Improvement Project Program

The Grass Valley City Council on Tuesday adopted the Capital Improvement Project Program, which is put together by staff to highlight the city’s big infrastructure projects for the fiscal years of 2015 to 2020.

The CIPP included improvement projects on the water system, parks, facility, storm drains, streets and sewage system of the city.

Also on Tuesday, Diane Raymond, the new executive director of Grass Valley Downtown Association, gave a short presentation about the nonprofit’s new financial reporting structure.

“This is an opinion, but coming into an organization and seeing how things function, I feel that there was mismanagement by the previous administration and poor oversight by the board,” said Raymond during the meeting.

“The most important point I want to make sure of is the board of directors is informed and has a clear understanding of our financial position at all times,” said Raymond.
