Budget Request 2019-2020
Detailed Decision Package
Public Works - Facilities
Facilities Condition Assessment
Provide funding to complete condition assessments on all City-owned buildings.
Many of the City’s facilities (buildings) are in need of some sort of maintenance that goes beyond routine work that can be completed by City staff. However, there has never been complete inspections of the facilities or a prioritized repair and replacement plan developed for any of the facilities.
The lack of a facility assessment and plan places significant financial risk on the City as it could lead to costly, unplanned emergency repairs.
The Public Works Department has begun a process to develop asset management plans or strategies for all types of city infrastructure. It is proposed to provide money in the budget to hire a consultant or contractor to complete comprehensive condition assessments on all City-owned buildings for incorporation into the Department’s asset management plan. The plan will include a prioritized schedule of repair and replacement that can be incorporated into the City’s financial plan.
