The City of Castlegar is looking to create a comprehensive plan for all their infrastructure. In total, the plan will cost $20,000.

This is why the City is applying for a $10,000 grant from the Union of BC Municipalities. The remaining funds will be fronted by the city.

“We’re looking to catalog all city assets both underground and above ground,” transportation and civic works director Chris Barlow explained.

The city has been looking at all the assets individually and making sure we understand what we have and when it’s due for replacement.”

This comes in the wake of Rossland’s latest complications regarding improper management of capital assets and spending.

Barlow said the asset plan will combine all areas of the city. “We’ll make sure everyone is on board with all the city’s assets and what needs to be done to maintain them.”

This program will set the city up for success for years down the road.

“It’s a living breathing document. As your assets age and change and new ones come online while others fall off, the program itself is always continually updating,” he continued,” this plan will address how we continuously update.”

The city is confident they will receive the requested funds and can move forward as planned.
