Volunteers needed for Capital Improvement Advisory Committee

The Capital Improvement Advisory Committee, (CIAC) is composed of seven members: six members appointed by the Selectmen and one member appointed by the Finance Committee. The CIAC  studies proposals from the Sudbury Town Manager, Sudbury Public Schools and the Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School which involve major tangible items with a total project cost of more than $50,000 in a single year or over $100,000 in multiple years and which would likely require an article at Town Meeting for the project’s authorization. The CIAC meets throughout the year, however most meetings are held in the fall and winter months. The CIAC makes an annual report with recommendations to the Finance Committee and the Board of Selectmen on these proposals, in preparation for Annual Town Meeting presentations in May. Desired qualifications include having an interest in project and financial planning, and/or having engineering, architectural, or construction experience.


Applications will be accepted until the three vacancies are filled. For more information about the Capital Improvement Advisory Committee, please contact the committee at ciac@sudbury.ma.us or Jim Kelly, Facilities Director, at 978-440-5466 or kellyj@sudbury.ma.us for more information.
