Strategic Asset Management Policy Stone Mills 2019

A strategic asset management policy formalizes the Township’s commitment to asset management, aligns its asset management actions with strategic goals and objectives, and provides direction to guide Council, management and staff in carrying out its business strategies, plans and activities. 

Asset Management Plan

The development of an asset management plan has been identified as a prerequisite for the receipt of funding from the Province of Ontario (the ‘Province’) under The Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperity Act, 2015 (the “Act”). Ontario Regulation 588/17: Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure (O.Reg. 588/17), establishes the requirement for Ontario municipalities to adopt asset management plans for core infrastructure (roads, bridges, water and wastewater management) by July 1, 2022.
