Un-assumed assets in a Municipality and Asset Management Plans.

  • 1.  Un-assumed assets in a Municipality and Asset Management Plans.

    Posted 11-12-2020 13:31
    Hi, folks.  I'm looking to get some input as to what other Municipalities are doing when it comes to assets that have not yet been assumed by the Municipality.  When new subdivision are built by a developer, it's not uncommon for those assets to remain the responsibility of the developer.  My question is, should they be included in the Asset Management plan?  The AMP for our core assets is legislated to be completed by July, 1 2021, which includes roads, storm, and bridges in our case.  I'm struggling with the question of leaving out assets that are still the responsibility of the  developers, (for financial reasons) but a letter of acceptance has been issued by the town.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Claudia,

    I use "PENDING' is the status field. This way, I can keep the attributes and the geometry in the system and assign codes to it to display that something is going on here.
    Don't know if this will help.

    I would definitely include it as an asset management plan is a long term plan – so the asset will be under ownership by your organisation in future. You will need to understand the cost associated when it is under your control. Perhaps include an appendix of future acquisitions under acceptance but not yet owned?

    I have taken a similar approach using "Warranty" until we have fully assumed responsibility for the asset.
