Abstract: The collection of papers presents real world experiences and practical suggestions for improving infrastructure management in local governments. A case study is presented on how a computer-based infrastructure information system was effectively integrated into the day-to-day decision making of a local government engineering department. Recommendations are given for organizing and implementing a community-wide infrastructure strategic planning process. Development of a building and facilities management program is described. Current uses of microcomputers as tools for infrastructure management are reviewed. The final paper discusses how better management of a telecommunications infrastructure can reduce costs and improve the effectiveness of the more traditional public works infrastructure.
