An approach permit must be obtained from the RM Office. The culvert must be purchased by the homeowner/builder and also installed by same, but before the culvert is back filled, the homeowner/builder must contact the RM Office so that our Public Works Manager can go out and verify that the culvert is at the correct elevation and placement. Once it has been inspected, the homeowner/builder will be advised that everything is ok and that the culvert can be back filled.

Decorative Additions to approaches are not permitted unless permission is obtained under Section 8.02 of the Private Approach By-Law 2012.02. 

That any alteration or maintenance of a Decorative Addition permitted by section 8.01 are strictly the responsibility of the Owner, and the Municipality will not be held responsible for any damage sustained to any such alternation or Decorative Addition, whether such damage is caused by the Municipality’s grader or any other cause.
