City of Lakeport Public Works Department Adopts New Asset Management Program

The City of Lakeport Public Works Department is proud to announce the successful integration of an asset management system into our daily operations. This project has been led by Paul Harris, Utilities Superintendent, and his team in the Utilities Division. 

The new Cartegraph asset management system allows the City to electronically track service orders, usage of equipment & supplies, task duration, project costs, and other helpful information that enhances our efficiency and record keeping. Public Works and Utilities staff can easily add data on an electronic tablet while in the field completing tasks which is automatically uploaded to the new system.

The asset management software is also integrated into Lakeport’s geographic information system (GIS) which was established more than 20 years ago and continues to be an important part of the City of Lakeport’s operations. 

Many of the recent upgrades to our asset management and GIS programs were completed by Connie Warthen, a recent UCLA graduate (BA, Geography; GIS minor; 2020) who joined Lakeport Public Works in 2021 after a successful year-long fellowship with the City as part of the CivicSpark Fellowship program.

The Lakeport Public Works Department is excited about this new project and looks forward to using new technologies to reach the goal of providing superior service to City of Lakeport customers and community stakeholders.
