2017 Municipal Finance Forum

Mary Lou Spicer Bio


Mary Lou Spicer is a CPA CGA with 30 years’ experience in the for-profit and municipal sectors.  Mary Lou is Deputy Director of Finance with the County of Grey and was responsible for collecting and organizing the initial data required to comply with PS3150. She was also the lead on the County’s first asset management plan and most recently led the update to the original plan and the inclusion of the remaining asset categories.
Mary Lou says it didn’t take long to reach the conclusion that PS3150 was just the starting point; looking at acquisition costs doesn’t ensure that adequate funds will be available in the future and that asset management was the next logical step.  Mary Lou enjoys working with departments and showing non-financial staff that they possess valuable information and are a key component of the success or failure of the asset management program.
