Accommodating the strong growth the City experiences requires collection, entry and processing of municipal infrastructure. For Engineering Services this includes ensuring efficient operation and maintenance of City asset management systems as they pertain to:

Information on assets can include:

  • Inventory information (new assets and expired assets)
  • Condition information
  • Selected work history information
  • Other (failures, net worth, etc.)

The City of Grande Prairie uses the Pavement Management System (PMS) to plan the maintenance and rehabilitation of our road network.
