Asset Management - What Do Elected Officials Need to Know?
AMO’s new primer on asset management is developed to help Councils understand their role in identifying key infrastructure and investment priorities in their communities while coping with challenges including limited financial capacity and staff resources, increasing service expectations, and emerging risks such as climate change.
This primer provides examples from municipalities of different sizes, and how local governments are making progress in adopting asset management. It includes a checklist for councils that can be revisited every year to assess state of asset management in their municipalities, and to identify opportunities for making further progress.
