The Louisa County Planning Commission recommended approval on Feb. 9 of $4.8 million in new capital spending as part of the fiscal year 2018 budget.

The five-year capital improvement budget (CIP) will be reviewed next by the board of supervisors, who may choose to cut some items from this year’s capital requests over the coming months.

The commission held a public hearing on the county’s CIP request, but had no discussion before voting 7-0 to support it.

The largest items that county staff included in the CIP are requests from Louisa County Public Schools, including $944,000 for school buses and $675,000 for technology maintenance.

Jerry Rosenthal, a Louisa resident, was the lone public speaker at the hearing. He spoke regarding a proposal to spend $320,000 on a study of a possible new county building.
