Roadway Permits

Man in construction vehicle

The Municipality owns, controls and maintains large areas of land beyond the gravel, and paved surface of your roadway. Most people would refer to these areas as shoulders, boulevards, or even your front yard.

In and under these areas we manage and maintain things like water lines, trees, sidewalks, sewers and drains. Some of these things are sensitive to heavy vehicles and digging. A quick and simple move like driving a backhoe across your front yard can crush a buried pipe, or tear a telephone wire. It is important that homeowners and contractors contact the Public Works Department for a discussion on what or if a permit is required prior to starting the project.
