Courtenay council’s moving forward with an application for the Provincial government’s asset management planning grant.

The Asset Management Planning Program was created in 2014 through a $1.5 million grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

The basic intent of the program is to assist local governments in delivering sustainable services by extending and deepening their asset management practices within the organization.

We caught up with Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula to get the rundown regarding what this grant would mean to the city going forward.

Councilors agreed to apply for the grant as of last night’s council meeting.

If accepted for this grant, the city would receive $10,000 towards the practice of asset management.
