Asset management

Municipalities across Ontario are facing challenges to fund their infrastructure at levels that ensure sustainability due to aging assets, increasing renewal needs and pressures from a changing climate and growing population.  

In response to Ontario Regulation 588/17: Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure, Northumberland County has prepared comprehensive Asset Management Plans for core infrastructure assets (roads, bridges, large culverts, retaining walls and storm sewers), corporate facilities, fleet, natural heritage and road infrastructure detailing the state of these assets and how to make the best possible investment decisions.  

These Asset Management Plans enable County staff to make informed decisions regarding the operation, maintenance, renewal, replacement and disposal of our assets.
