New Brunswick communities receive funding for asset management planning

New Brunswick communities receive funding for asset management planning

TOWN OF SAINT ANDREWS, N.B. — A federal investment of more than $350,000 will enable eight New Brunswick communities put in place innovative asset management strategies to help communities manage municipal infrastructure assets such as roads, arenas, bridges, drinking water and wastewater systems to ensure maximum performance and make better investment decisions.

Asset management helps reduce risks so municipalities can provide reliable and affordable services. The funding will help strengthen data-driven decision-making on key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

The announcement was made by Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities Dominic LeBlanc and acting president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Scott Pearce.

Among the recipients is the Town of Saint Andrews, which will receive $50,000 to improve the quality of its record data and condition assessment data by doing a condition assessment of the roads, trails and wharf.

The Village of Saint-Antoine will receive $50,000 to improve and to continue developing its asset management plan. It will also review its risk assessment to include the impact of climate change; develop adaptation or mitigation measures for high-risk assets and perform lifecycle asset assessments to outline detailed asset investment requirements; develop a strategy to manage financial shortcomings; and generate five- and 10-year expenditure plans for priority assets and future projects, states a release.

The Village of New Maryland will receive $50,000 to implement ArcGIS Online, receive training and develop mobile applications for collecting inventory and assess the condition of critical infrastructure. It will also create a condition assessment strategy and policy and conduct stakeholder and community engagement.
