Orange County Board of County Commissioners is in the middle of their budget workshops. You can view them on Orange TV and see where our money is being spent.
One topic that peaked my interest was the 300 million dollars for Infrastructure and other improvements to the county. 200 million will be allocated to Infrastructure. Although this sounds like a lot we have a long way to go because Orange County has 1.6 billion in infrastructure needs. It is a good start. This is being funded by a bond issue taking advantage of the low interest rates and the high bond rating that the county enjoys.
The roadway improvements include new roadways or expansion of existing roadways that will relieve traffic congestion throughout the County.
This will have to be approved by the board.
