Municipal infrastructure doesn't exist for the sake of having infrastructure; it exists to provide services to the community. We need to ensure our infrastructure is providing the services our communities depend on.
Using asset management practices and principles we are finding ways to better understand how municipal assets work, what they cost to operate and what levels of service they provide. We want to ensure residents are getting the best bang for their buck when it comes to local infrastructure and the services it provides.
