Qs FROM CONSTITUENTS: ON PRIVATE ROADS
This blog series explores some of the questions I have been asked by Grey Highlands' constituents. This post reviews the questions asked of all candidates at the Eugenia All Candidates Meeting on Oct 1, 2022.
The following posts originated from questions from the Eugenia All Candidates Debate. The following are the question topics:
Grey Highlands is home to many Private Roads that have agreements in place to assist with maintaining these roads.
As an elected official, would you make it a priority to maintain or improve the existing agreements?
The next Council will receive a Staff Report on suggestions for the Private Road Grant Policy. Check out this article in the Toronto Star https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2022/05/06/tlti-to-update-private-roads-policy.html Here, The Town of Leeds and Thousand Islands, incorporated an Emergency Plan as part of the overall private road grants discussion. This discussion traditionally only includes the financial competent, for example, maintenance costs. If I am part of the 2022 team, I would direct staff to include an emergency plan as part of the private road grant policy. I would then need to majority of Council for the motion to pass.
