Municipal Metrics & Level of Service Workshop

Hosted by the City of Burlington

Asset Management Ontario (AMONTario) invites you to a municipal metrics and level of service workshop on Friday, October 26th, 2018 at the City of Burlington. Through the generous support of the Ministry of Infrastructure, this training and workshop is free for municipal employees. Description O.Reg. 588/17 (Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure) requires every municipality in Ontario to prepare an asset management plan in respect of its core municipal infrastructure assets by July 1, 2021 and in respect of all other municipal infrastructure assets by July 1, 2023. Central to these plans are levels of service (LOS) benchmarks for each asset category. The regulation specifies LOS metrics for core municipal infrastructure assets. With respect to all other municipal infrastructure assets, the regulation requires qualitative descriptions and technical metrics established by the municipality. Asset Management Ontario (AMONTario) is developing a Municipal Metrics Catalogue that identifies metrics or benchmarks, both qualitative and technical, for various asset categories. An aim of this catalogue is to help users understand which metrics or benchmarks might be most appropriate for various circumstances. Since levels of service encompass both qualitative and technical aspects, this workshop is intended for municipal employees working in asset management across a range of functions: public works, finance, planning, and administration. Workshop Details Date:               Friday, October 26, 2018 Time:              9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Location:        City of Burlington 414 Locust Street – 2nd floor Burlington, ON L7S 1B3 Boardroom is located on the second floor next to the Burlington Economic Development Committee. Cost:               Free (to municipalities) Registration: Go to–level-of-service-workshop–2138713982 to register.
