Columbus mayor Michael Coleman today released his capital improvements budget.

His office calls it an unprecedented investment in parks, bike paths pools and recreation centers.

The proposal calls for spending $8 million to improve urban infrastructure, $6 million for fire fighters and police and nearly $3 million on street and snow equipment.

The city was heavily criticized this earlier this winter for taking several days to plow many city streets.

The mayor also calls for 33-million dollars in street re-surfacing and alley restoration.
