Capital Reserve – Infrastructure and Equipment

This project transfers funds from the operating budget into a reserve account to fund future projects and equipment to ensure adequate funding for facility and infrastructure upgrades without significant tax rate increases. Funding from this capital reserve will be used to promote resiliency by funding projects that prolong the life of the City of Dover's facilities and infrastructure. 

Cost: $1,175,000

Capital Reserve – Cemetery

This project transfers funds from the operating budget into a reserve account to fund future cemetery projects and equipment purchases. 

Cost: $125,000

General Facility Repairs and Updates

This project will fund ongoing improvements and upgrades needed to maintain the efficiency and effectiveness of Dover's municipal buildings. An example is the repairs and updates needed to the Mast Road public works facility, including roof repairs, gutter replacement, removing severe corrosion in the dedicated wash bay and reinforcement and replacing of the garage door.

Cost: $50,000

CAMA Software Replacement and Implementation

The current CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal) system, known as Univers, is no longer being developed.  Replacement computers in the Assessor’s Office are being rebuilt to support the older 32-bit technology to sustain it.  Throughout the State, municipalities have been phasing out this software. This system is on its way to becoming obsolete. 

The conversion process to a new CAMA system will likely require additional support.  Once in place, the system will increase the efficiency of the Assessor’s Office, as well as smooth out and provide more flexible and effective valuation tools.

Cost: $37,000
