Community Investment Funds are created to account for financial resources to be used for the acquisition or construction of major capital facilities, except for those financed by Special Revenue Funds and Proprietary Funds. The Community Investment Funds provide a formal mechanism which enables administrators to ensure that revenues restricted to a certain, relatively permanent purpose are used only for that purpose.

The Local Improvement Fund provides the control for construction of Community Investment Program projects that are not funded in other capital project, governmental, or proprietary funds. The primary sources of funding include the three-cent per gallon locally collected municipal motor fuel tax, any grant funds and the funding source transfer from the General Fund.
