Capital Projects Advisory Committee

Capital Projects Advisory Committee – An Overview

In October of 2016, the Murphy City Council directed city staff to initiate steps to prepare for a potential November 2017 Bond Election.  Bond elections are periodically conducted by the city to secure financing for large capital projects. Staff identified the need to form a citizen committee to assist city council in preparation for the upcoming Bond Election. 

In November of 2016, the Murphy City Council created the Capital Projects Advisory Committee (CPAC).  The CPAC consisted of seven members selected from the community.  The main function of the CPAC was to recommend a list of capital projects to city council that were considered at the November 2017 election. 

The CPAC met regularly at city hall and received reports from staff regarding the city’s capital needs.  CPAC meetings were conducted on the Thursday immediately following Regular City Council meetings (1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month).  CPAC meetings were held in the Community Room at City Hall (1st Floor, south entrance) and generally started at 6:00 PM.  Meeting agendas and times were posted on the city web site no later than 72 hours prior to the scheduled meeting.  CPAC meetings were public meetings, and as such, any citizen could attend. 

The CPAC continued to meet through the spring and summer of 2017.  The CPAC Chair made periodic updates to City Council, informing Council of the progress of the committee.  The CPAC provided City Council a recommended list of projects for consideration.  City Council considered CPAC’s recommended list of projects and either adopted or modified the recommended list as appropriate. 

Please check the city web site often for information regarding the CPAC and the city 2017 Bond Initiative.
