These projects range from improvements to county roads, parks, sewers, and buildings, to purchasing new equipment and technology, all of which improves the quality of life for residents of Nassau County.

Projects of Investment


Capital projects are those that represent a major investment in county assets. In Nassau County, projects may be included in the capital budget if their cost exceeds $100,000 and the useful life exceeds five years. The capital budget funds projects that are not included in the operating budget due to their high cost and irregular occurrence. Capital projects are major physical improvements such as construction, renovation, or acquisition of buildings or property or purchases of long-lived equipment or technology assets.

The 2015 and 2016 Capital Budgets and the 2015– 2018 and 2016 - 2019 Capital Improvement Plans were submitted to the Clerk of the Legislature. Information about the proposed plans can be found in the 2015 and 2016 Capital Budgets and the 2015– 2018 and 2016 - 2019 Capital Improvement Plans
