Minimum Maintenance Standards Request for Comments

The Minimum Maintenance Standards Task Force has completed it's initial five year review of the standards and they are attached for your comment. (Document 1 and Document 2) We would like your comments sent to Alan Korell at alan.korell@municipalengineers.on.ca   by the end of August.

This review not only looked at the existing standards but ventured into the areas of winter maintenance of sidewalks and bike paths. All the suggested changes are highlighted. Sidewalk slip and falls are the number one insurance issue facing municipalities. Bike lane maintenance is also another hot button issue with municipalities. The second attachment highlights these issues.
