Roads and Road Agreements

 

Snow Removal

After heavy snowfalls in Emerald Park, bus routes and South Plains Road, Kingsmere Avenue, Sappphire Drive and Emerald Drive are prioritized. Once those are cleared, the focus shifts to remaining streets, roads, crescents and bays followed by the walkways. In rural areas, the RM of Edenwold maintance team first clears bus routes/high traffic main roads, paved roads and country residential subdivisions. Then, the focus shifts to grid roads and farm access roads. 

Dust Control

Dust control in the form of magnesium chloride will be applied on the municipal roadway adjacent to a residence, upon written request from the landowner; and all requests must be received in the Administration Office no later than April 30th in any year. A Dust Control application form can be obtained by clicking the link here.

Upon completion of the work, the ratepayer shall be invoiced for 50% of the municipality's actual cost of the product and application for 200 meters. Product and application applied beyond the 200 meters will be invoiced to the ratepayer at 100%.

Haul Road Agreements

All haulers, hauling goods or commodities over any road in the municipality on a continuous basis, must enter into a haul road agreement. The municipality shall designate which roads may be utilized for the continuous haul, and all haul road fees must be submitted to the municipality upon completion of the haul or, in any case, prior to December 31st in each year.

The haul road fees are established in accordance with the provisions of the Road Maintenance and Restoration Agreement Regulations, 1995, and are set annually at the first meeting of Council.

A Haul Road Maintenance agreement form can be found here.
