The MD of Bonnyville has received a 50,000 dollar Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) grant to fund two Asset Management Initiatives.
The FCM Municipal Asset Management Program is a new five-year, 50-million dollar program designed to help municipalities make informed decisions about infrastructure investment. The MD’s two projects to get funding include external training for staff in Asset Management and a study on the district’s road system. The first such study in sixteen years, it will include a traffic analysis, a road inventory, road condition assessments and some preliminary engineering.
The total budget for the project is 80,000 dollars, with 30,000 taken from the 2017 Operating Budget. A consultant will be hired to complete the road study and to provide training for the senior management team.
