“The motion is lost,” said South Dundas Mayor Steven Byvelds at the February 7th council meeting.
He was referring to Councillor Evonne Delegarde’s motion that South Dundas “be responsible for road maintenance from this point on” at Doran Creek Estates, near Iroquois.
While Deputy-Mayor Jim Locke once again spoke in favour of the motion, it was not enough.
Mayor Steven Byvelds said, “one of the challenges that Swanks didn’t consider is that this is normal business. In talking to other municipalities, they do not do maintenance until final construction is done.”
