WHEREAS the current road maintenance and loss of road life rates legislated under The Municipalities Regulations are out-dated and do not cover actual costs; and
WHEREAS traffic is increasing on rural roads, which has a direct impact on the need for increased maintenance and repair. The associated costs of road maintenance and road degradation are well in excess of the legislated rates; and
WHEREAS municipalities are responsible for costs far above what is allowed in these regulated fees, with several funding cuts in effect.
BE IT RESOLVED SARM lobby the provincial government to take action and increase the road maintenance agreement rates and loss of road life fees.
