WHEREAS there are currently many large elevators and fertilizer distributors located within RM’s and on RM roads; and WHEREAS many of these facilities have closed their clean out areas for a variety of reasons; and WHEREAS commodity haulers preferred method to clean out their truck boxes is to travel down roads with chutes open and tarps off; and WHEREAS this is causing considerable expense to RM’s to try to control noxious weeds. BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to require elevators and fertilizer distributors to have clean out areas at their facilities as it is a cost of doing business.
