The Committee will assure that the proposed CIP projects are aligned with County policies, established priorities, guiding principles and long term vision, as defined in the County’s Strategic Plan.  The Committee will also assure that the recommended 5-year CIP is aligned with approved financial policies and that the County’s financial stability is maintained through the prudent use of its revenues.  The CIP Oversight Committee will report its recommendations directly to the County Executive.
