Lehigh County executive releases 2018 5-year capital plan

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Lehigh County Executive Tom Muller delivered the county's latest five-year capital plan to the Board of Commissioners late last week. The plan covers 2018-2022, according to a press release from the county. 

According to the release, overall spending is projected at $133.8 million, including $68.5 million in financing for the renovation and expansion of the Cedarbrook nursing home operations in South Whitehall Township. 

The release states that the amount is in line with one of several options under consideration, some are more expensive. "While a final decision may not be made for two to three months, it would be irresponsible to not include a substantial investment in Cedarbrook in this plan," Muller said. 

Excluding the Cedarbrook project, spending is $65.3 million, with $5.7 million coming from the Operating Fund, a decrease of 30 percent from the previous plan, according to the release. 

Under its County Charter, the Administration is required to issue a five-year Capital Plan by June 30 and the Board is required to take final action by the end of August, according to the release.
