Asset Management Plan
The 2013 Asset Management Plan for the Local Services Board of Rossport
The performance of a community’s infrastructure provides the foundation for its economic development, competitiveness, prosperity, reputation, and the overall quality of life for its residents. Reliable and well maintained infrastructure assets are essential for the delivery of critical core services for the citizens of a board.
A technically precise and financially rigorous asset management plan, diligently implemented, will mean that sufficient investments are made to ensure delivery of sustainable infrastructure services to current and future residents. The plan will also indicate the respective financial obligations required to maintain this delivery at established levels of service.
This Asset Management Plan (AMP) for The Board of Rossport meets all requirements as outlined within the provincial Building Together Guide for Municipal Asset Management Plans. It will serve as a strategic, tactical, and financial document, ensuring the management of the municipal infrastructure follows sound asset management practices and principles, while optimizing available resources and establishing desired levels of service. Given the expansive financial and social impact of asset management on both a board, and its citizens, it is critical that senior decision-makers, including department heads as well as the chief executives, are strategically involved.
Measured in 2012 dollars, the replacement value of the water network analyzed totalled $3.45 million for Rossport.
