Jahnz notes almost $19 million spent in capital improvements since 2008

LINCOLN - James Jahnz, candidate for re-election to the Lincoln Town Council, District 4, noted in a press release, "Since the creation of Lincoln's Capital Improvement Plan in 2008, the town of Lincoln has invested over $18.7 million in our town's infrastructure, public buildings and recreational facilities and parks."

Jahnz added, "It has been a priority of both the Town Council and the town administrator to invest in our town in order to ensure that Lincoln remains fiscally strong, as well as an attractive place to live and raise a family."

He stated that capital funding has not only gone toward roads, dams, and sidewalks; but also to a new senior center, a public library renovation and addition, as well as plans for a new high school athletic field and police department renovation.

He said that renovations and improvements have also greatly benefited the town's recreational facilities and town parks, including ongoing plans for Albion Park.

Jahnz concluded, "These investments in our town not only have the benefit of improving our quality of life, but also show smart planning on the part of the administration and council to have the capability of investing almost $19 million in capital improvements while not increasing our town's tax levy."
