MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS


Grading of Driveways

The RM will grade privately owned driveways two (2) times during the summer maintenance season in any given year at no charge to the owner/resident. Please contact the Public Works Supervisor to request this service.  Grading will be undertaken when time and work schedules permit and is at the discretion of the RM.  Please note that this is just a basic grading and any repairs or additional work requested by the landowner/resident will be considered custom work and billed accordingly.

Mowing of Driveways

The RM will mow privately owned driveways one (1) time during the mowing season in any given year at no charge to the owner/resident. Please contact the Public Works Supervisor to request this service.

Snow Removal

The RM will undertake snow removal on private driveways in accordance with municipal policy which requires the completion of a Snow Removal Agreement & Waiver Form.  Please contact the RM for information.

The RM will remove snow from seasonal roads (roads not maintained with regular snow removal) on a custom work basis if required and requested by landowners/ratepayers. The work will be undertaken when time and scheduling permits and custom work rates will be charged from the time the equipment leaves the shop until it comes back to the shop.  These type of requests will not be undertaken during routine snow removal on municipal roads.  In all instances regular snow removal will be undertaken prior to any custom work requests.  The landowner/ratepayer requesting the work must sign a custom work waiver sheet prior to the work being undertaken.
