Town of Fort Erie - Asset Management Plan dated February 2015

Associated Engineering (Ont.) Ltd., was retained by the Town of Fort Erie to complete a comprehensive Asset Management Plan (AMP) and Technology Solution. The approach for this AMP was in accordance with the Ministry of Infrastructure (MOI) “Building Together” guide. This guide defines an AMP as “a strategic document that states how a group of assets is to be managed over a period of time.”

The MOI “Building Together” guide provides a framework for all Ontario municipalities to establish a municipal infrastructure strategy and an asset management plan that will guide municipal infrastructure investment. The approach is collaborative amongst all levels of government—the province, municipalities, and the federal government—in order to address the challenges of current and emerging infrastructure needs.

The Asset Management Plan is comprised of a number of key components including:
Section 1 - Introduction
Section 2 - State of local infrastructure
Section 3 - Desired levels of service
Section 4 - Asset management strategy
Section 5 - Financing strategy
Section 6 – Improvement recommendations
