The Roads and Drainage Division completes a variety of preventative measures to ensure that all Town-owned roads and infrastructure are maintained and safe for public use throughout all seasons.
Road Surface Management
Infrastructure & Equipment Maintenance
The Town is required to control weeds that have been deemed noxious in the Province of Ontario under the Weed Control Act. Roadside spraying takes place between May and June of each year and is contracted through a licensed technician. Herbicide is applied to rural roadside areas that show noxious weed occurrence or that appear unkept.
Axle Weight Restrictions
Axle weight restrictions are placed on specific roadways to prevent damage to road surfaces during the spring thaw. Reduced load road signs are placed on roads pursuant to axle weight restrictions under By-Law No. 2010-54.
