Out of 91 projects, over 50 percent are complete and another 45 percent are in the construction phase with the remaining 5 percent in the design phase.
Next, he briefed the Commission on the status of the FY 99 Bond Program. In January 1999, $18M of bond revenue was issued for expenditure. A total of $3.8M has been expended to date. Out of 142 projects, 80 percent are in the construction or design phase.
Mr. Patton moved on to explain the status of the Total Capital Program. The projected FY 2000 expenditure goal is $20M. He commented that we are currently $3M ahead of our December projected expenditure goal. December’s projected expenditure goal was $5M, the actual expenditures totaled $8.04M.
FY 2000 Bond Program totals 127 projects. Bond revenue totaling $20M is anticipated to be issued on February 15, 2000. Six percent will be distributed for ADA, 49 percent for water/wastewater, and 45 percent will be for critical facility repair.
Next Mr. Patton shared with the Commission some visuals showing some program highlights including Caprock Canyons, Hueco Tanks, Lake Somerville, and Huntsville.
He also shared with the Commission, highlights of Infrastructure’s 1999 Annual Report and told the Commission the report will be forwarded to them at a future date.
