Assets and Roads
The Assets and Development Department of the Pyrenees Shire manages the roads and infrastructure throughout the Shire. Asset management incorporates the construction and maintenance of Council infrastructure. This may include: roads, parks and gardens, open spaces, recreation and leisure facilities and other property owned or occupied by Council. Council operates Maintenance Depots in Avoca and Beaufort.
Council funds rehabilitation and upgrades of assets through a Capital expenditure budget each year. This includes expenditure on items such as roads, underground drainage, footpaths, kerb and channel. These works are prioritised based on risk and condition.
Council have taken a progressive approach to maintaining their assets by assessing the assets condition on a regular basis and undertaking action to maintain them at a target level.
