1. The road assets were segmented based on village blocks.
2. A single road asset was measured from the middle of one intersection to the middle of the next intersection
3. The length of the road segment was determined using the scale provided on the asbuilt drawings.
4. The width of the road was determined by Village staff. It is important to note that most plans illustrate the road right of way not the actual usable road. The road right of way width often includes sidewalks and ditches and is not all usable road.
5. The area of the road segment was calculated by multiplying the road width by the road segment length (road area is used in the valuation process).
6. The years of construction for roads in the pilot were determined by Village staff.
7. The asset useful life was estimated in Step 1: Development and Review of PS 3150 Policy. For the pilot, roads were assigned a useful life of 40 years.
1. The back lanes all had a gravel surface and were inventoried as a single asset (surface and structure)
2. The back lanes were segmented based on village blocks
3. Segments were measured from the edge of the west adjacent road to the edge of the east adjacent road
4. The length of the back lane segments was scaled from the asbuilt drawings
5. The width of the back lane was determined by Village staff
6. The area of the back lane was calculated by multiplying the back lane segment length by the back lane width
7. The years of construction for the back lanes were determined by Village staff
8. The pilot policy assigned a useful life of 40 years to back lanes
1. Village staff sketched the locations and widths of all sidewalks on the municipal map
2. The sidewalks were segmented by Village blocks
3. Segments were measured from the west adjacent road to the east adjacent road
4. The lengths of the sidewalks were scaled from the village map
5. The widths of the sidewalks were determined by Village staff
6. The years of construction for sidewalks in the pilot was determined by Village staff
7. The pilot policy assigned a useful life of 30 years to sidewalks
1. The water mains were segmented by Village block.
2. Water main segments were measured from the center of one intersection to the center of the next adjacent intersection - If the properties of the pipe change within that segment (i.e. pipe diameter, year of construction, etc.) the segment needs to be divided to reflect unique properties for each segment
3. Water main features (i.e. valves, hydrants, etc.) were not individually inventoried and were assumed to be included with the water main.
4. Water services to individual lots were not inventoried and are assumed to be included with the water main
5. The asbuilt drawings list water main properties including year of construction, pipe size, and material type
6. The length of each water main was scaled from the asbuilt drawings
7. In the pilot policy water mains were assigned a useful life of 75 years
1. The sanitary sewers were segmented based on sanitary manholes
2. Sanitary segments were measured from the upstream manhole to the next manhole
3. Sanitary features (i.e. cleanouts, manholes) were not inventoried individually and were assumed to be included with the sanitary main
4. The asbuilt drawings list most required information for the sanitary mains including year of construction, pipe size, material type and segment length
5. In the policy sanitary mains were assigned a useful life of 75 years
All but one road were past the useful life
The remaining road, had no historical cost
All back lanes are past the useful life
All sidewalks are past the useful life
All water mains have remaining useful lives
All sanitary mains have remaining useful lives
