Council has approved the list of oiling projects for 2018. During the course of preparation for oiling east of Boyne Lake Store, PW staff were approached by Don Imeson who indicated that he was supposed to have oil an extra 1/2 mile to his property. The PW staff contacted Steven Jeffery, past Public Works Supervisor, who obtained easements for the road project in that area. He indicated that the 1/2 mile in question was in fact oiled prior to the road construction. As a result Administration is looking for approval to include this addtional 1/2 mile of oil in Division 6. Councillor Amyotte has indicated that he will reduce 1/2 mile West of Mallaig to accommodate this change.
Councillor Hedrick has requested that the lagoon road west of Highway 36 be oiled for 1 mile. Prior to the new road being built to the new lagoon, this section of road did have oil on it. PW has indicated that due to the heavy truck traffic on this stretch of road, that Council consider other dust control alternatives to cold mix for this road. Options would include: MG30 or Roadtech.
CNRL is interested in trying the road tech product on 1 km on Twp Rd 560 East of Rge Rd 33. This is on a CNRL main haul route that was slated for cold mix repair in Division 1 - Krider Road east of 897. Administration is suggesting that CNRL pay for the product and the County install the product. Cost to CNRL - $60,000; Cost to County - $15,000. If we cold mix this section of road as planned, CNRL will be billed for the cold mix - $80,000 and the County will pay for rip and relay of $15,000.
