The Municipality consists of both municipally owned and maintained roads and privately owned roads. Private roads are those that are owned by one or more land owner who use it to access their properties. Services are limited on these roads. Garbage and recycling collection and school transportation services is traditionally offered at the nearest intersection to a municipally owned road. All road work and ditching is the responsibility of the private road owners.
There are requests made for the Municipality to travel down these roads, or to assume the roads. The assumption of any road is a Council decision. The roads must be brought up to the municipal standard by the property owners prior to any commitment from Council. The standard will vary depending on the number of homes and the lay of the land. It is best to speak to the Municipal Engineer prior to starting any work towards this initiative. Please contact the Municipal Office at 705-752-2740.
