A first glimpse at 2014 SDG roads budget

No major county roads projects are slated for South Dundas in 2014.

South Dundas’ counties council representatives South Dundas mayor Steven Byvelds and South Dundas deputy mayor Jim Locke, reported that to South Dundas council at the November 19 regular meeting of council.

Counties council will deliberate the counties budget in February 2014, but this month were presented with the preliminary roads budget.

While the almost $12 million budget includes the counties regular 50 km of resurfacing done annually, little of that resurfacing will take place on counties roads within South Dundas.

According to Byvelds, 1.9 km of County Road 18 between Williamsburg and Boucks Hill will be resurfaced, but the major projects will take place on County Road 19 and on County Road 31, from Winchester to the City of Ottawa boundary.

The counties roads budget includes $250,000 of counties money for the storm sewer reconstruction project in Morrisburg scheduled for spring 2014.

Deputy mayor Locke said he continues to lobby for something to be done to improve the state of the County Road 16 railway crossing.
