Smart Asset Management

March 7, 2019

What: Making decisions based on best guesses or intuition is no longer accessible to an educated and intelligent citizenry.  Asset Management Systems are being utilized by municipalities around the nation but not Yorktown. From our vehicle fleets and equipment, to our roads and bridges, to sewers and water distribution system, an asset management system provides a central hub of data that drives decision making, provides long term financial planning and performance level of municipal assets.


Why: Local government must maximize every tax dollar and we can’t do this if our departments are siloed.  Individual asset management systems, for those departments who have implemented something, only paints a small picture of the needs of the obsolete tools we are asking our staff to use.  An asset management system, if properly implemented, provides concrete data to support decisions by municipal leaders. Advanced asset management systems improves efficiencies, effectiveness and overall productivity while achieving transparent fiscal responsibility.  


How: Asset management systems and companies are expanding at a rapid pace.  Working with municipal department heads the Slater Administration would look to identify a specific system and utilize a pilot project to determine its long term feasibility.
