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.
