Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment
WHEREAS the road construction season in Saskatchewan is weather-dependent and can be extremely limited;
WHEREAS the costs to replace municipal infrastructure are constantly increasing;
WHEREAS there has been minimal financial assistance from the provincial or federal governments;
WHEREAS the Ministry of Environment and Environment and Climate Change Canada continually place further restrictions and expectations on municipalities that delay road projects;
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby both the Ministry of Environment and Environment and Climate Change Canada to limit the administrative and financial burdens placed on road construction projects, allowing a simpler process to replace aging infrastructure.
