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, stormwater drains and public art. 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 best practice asset management across all areas of council. The Asset Solutions team support and guide the organisation's improved asset management.
