The Budget and Finance Committee of the Chattanooga City Council held discussions on the city's proposed capital budget, which totals to $96,975,470 for the 2015 fiscal year.
The projected budget from 2015 to 2019 totals to $402,925,215.
This includes the city's plans for the demolition and site preparation of the Harriet Tubman site. The city allocated $4 million for this project.
For CARTA, $89,200 was budgeted for technology upgrades in the upcoming year.
Money was also allocated to build a new fire station in the Highland Park area. Various committee members reported that the newer fire trucks were too large for the station.
Over the next five years, $2.8 million has been budgeted for updates and repairs on the Walnut Street Bridge.
One committee member said, "The plan is to keep one end of the bridge open at all times. If something happens then something happens, but that's the plan...We'll primarily try to keep the north side open and the south side closed."
The entire budget can be found on the city website, chattanooga.gov.
