Asset Management Series: Using Risk to Build an Asset Prioritization Process

Webinar Overview:
Submitting an asset management plan is a requirement for provincial funding opportunities and many municipalities are working toward that goal by the end of the year. But how do you prioritize your infrastructure needs in the asset management plan and capital budget? The Region of Peel has developed an asset management strategy that gives senior managers an organizational perspective to make better informed decisions on infrastructure priorities. It is the basis that guides each of Peel's departments in developing their capital and asset management plans and it is already helping to make sound financial decisions to close the funding gap.

This webinar will examine the Region of Peel's consistent and systematic approach, scalable tools and reporting methods to manage their asset priorities.

Best Practices in Asset Management

The municipal environment is a forever changing and demanding environment when it comes to legislation and other responsibilities. As municipalities in Ontario maintain and enhance their asset management plans, consideration is needed with respect to how the plan fits into the day-to-day operations of the municipality and how it can assist in other key processes and requirements. While an asset management plan can assist in applying for provincial grant applications, its primary benefit should be in how it strengthens decision making and leads to more proactive forecasting abilities.

This webinar will assist municipalities with making optimal use of their asset management plans through best practices, increasing the accuracy of the plan as well as integration with other key municipal documents and processes such as the annual budget, long-term forecast, water/wastewater rate study, and development charge study.

Changes to the Local Improvement Charges Regime: A Primer

Webinar Overview:
Amendments to local improvement charge (LIC) regulations were recently made by the Province (O. Reg. 322/12 under the Municipal Act and O. Reg. 323/12 under the City of Toronto Act). One purpose of the amendments is to permit municipalities to fund the costs of undertaking "work" on private property and to impose LICs by agreement with consenting property owners. One effect of the amendments is to authorize municipalities to finance energy retrofits on private properties and permit benefitting owners to pay back the related costs through the property tax collection process over time.

MFOA is presenting this webinar to provide an overview of the recent LIC regulation changes and raise issues that municipal finance officers may wish to take into account when considering an energy efficient LIC program.

Dedicated Leviers: Case Studies of Commitment to Capital Funding

Dedicated capital levies are an increasingly common tool to manage municipal infrastructure pressures, whether owing to the historic infrastructure deficit, maintenance and rehabilitation or mounting replacement costs. We kickoff the webinar by listing some of the drivers for dedicated levies and then differentiate capital levies from traditional capital funding strategies. The webinar focus is to profile municipalities that have implemented a dedicated levy, examining the genesis, basis, how the levy gets passed, how it is reflected to taxpayers and its purpose. Although adopting a dedicated levy gives infrastructure issues a higher profile than other financing techniques, we also review how levies can change over time.
