No improvement shall be constructed on any real property of which the town is the record owner, nor shall any improvement whatsoever be constructed by authority of any board or agency, the capital or operating budget of which is contained in appropriations which must be approved by the Town Council, unless the Town Council shall have first approved the construction of such improvement.
