At the City of Marion we’re looking at the ways we manage our assets. To do this we need your help:
• How well do they perform?
• Are they delivering our levels of service for safety, quality, function, capacity and sustainability?
• What can be improved?
We’d love you to read the three-page snapshots and complete our quick online survey at makingmarion.com.au during August and September 2020.
Your feedback will inform the Asset Management Plans to be presented for Council’s consideration and adoption in October 2020.
The City of Marion owns and manages a large and diverse asset portfolio, valued at over $1 billion. Our assets enable the provision of services to the community and businesses for current and future generations. Assets play a vital role in our residents’ quality of life.
Council’s assets range from roads and footpaths, to buildings, playgrounds, barbecues, shelters, vehicles, machinery and stormwater drains. In addition, we receive a number of “gifted” assets from State Government and developers which attract ongoing operational and maintenance costs over their life.
Asset management is about how assets are ‘looked after’, both on a day-to-day basis (operation, monitoring and maintenance) and in the medium-to-long term (planning, creation, renewal and disposal). We are committed to implementing asset management best practice across all areas of council. The Asset Solutions team support and guide the organisation to improved asset management.
The City of Marion’s Asset Management vision is:
To maintain the City of Marion’s assets to agreed levels of service which maximise community value throughout an asset’s life

Council will make effective and informed decisions through each stage of the asset lifecycle to achieve the Asset Management Vision and Strategic Objectives, by achieving four Outcome Areas:
