The Brookhaven Town Board is expected to vote Tuesday on more than $30 million in capital spending, paying for property, machinery and equipment for construction and draining projects.

The largest portion of the capital improvement plan, announced at Tuesday’s work session meeting, should be $11.5 million for open space preservation and drainage.

Another $4.4 million is expected to pay for improvements to parks and recreation, while $4 million may pay for improvements to the town landfill.

And $3.7 million may be allocated for constructing and 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 town.

Last month, the municipality approved $53.5 million in its capital budget. That included $10 million for open space acquisitions, with $6 million for purchases in the Carmans River watershed.
