This indicator illustrates the level of utilities asset maintenance in comparison to the current utilities asset value for the City's Water & Sewer and Central Regional Wastewater System assets.  To ensure the City's utilities assets are well maintained, sufficient funds must be allocated for operating expenditures,  improvements, repairs, and maintenance. 

Utilities maintenance expenditures as a percent of overall utilities assets value formula = total maintenance expenditures/total current utilities asset value from the City's Water and Sewer Fund (Fund 450) and Central Regional Wastewater System Fund (Fund 451).

Maintenance expenditures include the following:

  • Operating expenditures 
  • Capital improvements to the utilities assets
  • Cost for repair/improvements of utilities assets that do not qualify as a capital improvement
  • Debt services payments related to utilities assets

The asset value is derived from the City's Utilities Capital Asset account report. 

We will monitor this measure annually to track the trend instead of setting a fixed target. Monitoring this measure will provide insight into the level of investments and maintenance cost in relation to the asset value that is allocated and spent every year. 


The maintenance cost and utilities asset data come from the City’s Finance system, FAMIS.
