In November 2011, Council approved By-law 97-2011, being a by-law to adopt Ontario Regulation 239/02 Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways as the minimum maintenance standard for municipal roads.
Minimum maintenance standards are set by municipalities according to the Municipal Act, 2001. They describe the minimum standards municipalities must meet for road, bridge, and sidewalk maintenance. Speed limits and traffic counts determine each municipal road's classification. Minimum maintenance standards vary depending on the road's classification.
By adopting these standards, municipal roads, bridges, and sidewalks are kept safe and ready to use.
