The final proposed free cash expenditure is for the rail trail the city is developing on the Bradford side of the Merrimack River, across from downtown.

“We are at a critical point with the rail trail if we are going to meet the deadline imposed by the state to begin construction next year,” the mayor said. “The additional funding will allow us to finish some design issues.”

Tapping the free cash reserve requires a majority vote by the council, which is set to consider the spending tonight at 7 in City Hall.
