2020 is just four months away. While few of us are thinking about the New Year, the City of Rochester is already getting the budget ball rolling.

Rochester, Minn. - The cost to reconstruct the airport runway is $67M.

The cost to renovate and expand the Rochester Police Department's North Precinct to house different departments is around $22M.

These projects are all part of the Capital Improvement Program for the city. But the total recommended budget is around a whopping $387.6M.

It's a lot of dough - but City Administrator Steve Rymer says there are lots to look forward to next year.

"Over the course of time, Rochester has had steady growth, obviously with Destination Medical Center being here, into year 6 of that, with other things happening, housing, other development," Rymer said. "We're also just taking care of existing infrastructure, just to make sure what we have is well-maintained and building new to keep up with growth."

The budget will be formally considered and adopted in December.
