Gas Tax and Asset Management Workshops Conclude

UBCM staff completed a series of workshops in March and April across the province on the renewed Gas Tax Fund and Asset Management in BC.

The workshops – held in Abbotsford, Nanaimo, Kelowna, Prince George, Cranbrook and Fort St. John – provided local government staff with information on changes to the Gas Tax program in BC; details on Asset Management requirements under the Gas Tax Agreement; and information on tools, resources and training opportunities for asset management – including an overview of the work of Asset Management BC.

The workshop also included a number of case studies provided by Local Governments on their experience with Asset Management practices in their communities.  Case studies included the District of North Vancouver, Fraser Valley Regional District, Regional District of Nanaimo, City of Powell River, District of Lake Country, City of Grand Forks, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, City of Fort St. John.  The workshops also included a presentation from Christina Benty, formerly Mayor of Golden, on the critical importance of communication and public engagement throughout the Asset Management process.

Presentations from the workshop, including the various case studies, will be available on the UBCM website later this month.
