The Brookhaven Town Board has approved more than $30 million in capital spending projects, including open space preservation and town landfill improvements.

The board passed more than a dozen bonding resolutions on Tuesday identifying projects to be funded out of the 2014 capital budget. That budget, which totals $53.3 million, was approved last month.

The largest portion of the capital improvement plan is expected to be $11.5 million for open space preservation and drainage.

An additional $4.4 million was allocated to pay for improvements to parks and recreation facilities, while $4 million was approved for improvements to the landfill.

The board approved $3.7 million for building or revamping town-owned buildings and improving heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems, according to town officials. The remaining $6.4 million would pay for other improvements throughout the town.
