Culvert and other work discussed through Public Works Dec. 11

County of Wetaskiwin Public Works presents service requests

County of Wetaskiwin council heard updates on service requests during their regular Public Works council meeting Dec. 11.

The Public Works council meeting usually has a “Service Request Management Report” section that includes resident or taxpayer requests for help, or councilor requests for help and a description of how Public Works handled the request.

Division 1

SRM 1663 – Assigned: Requested by Councilor B. Krahn on behalf of Dennis Buskas that the culvert on RGE RD 230 near TWP 442 should be investigated as there is a substantial amount of water backing up. PW COMMENT: In August 2018, the County will investigate the issue and report back as per the SRM. Our investigation will look at the existing culvert(s) at the Buskas property and of those road crossings located upstream and downstream. The area has been surveyed and reviewed by staff. A report on the investigation will be developed in early 2019.

SRM 1712 – Assigned: Requested by Councilor B. Krahn. Please review the size of culverts on TWP 450 between NE-35-44-23 W4M (Kokas) and SE-2-45-3 W4M (Kakoschke). PW COMMENT: This has been investigated and will be addressed in 2019.

SRM 1871 – Closed: Requested by Councilor B. Krahn that Administration investigate the approach off HWY 822 near Jarvis Grant’s property at SW 27-44-23 W4M. PW COMMENT: Administration contacted J. Grant, Development Officer, who informed that the approach was installed as an access to a gravel pit located at NW 27-44-23 W4M – Northwest 27 Ag Ventures. Alberta Transportation has signed off on the approval of this approach, as the approach is off HWY 822, which falls under their jurisdiction.

Division 4

SRM 1854 – Pending: Requested by Councilor J. Bishop to install an opposing yield sign at the intersection of TWP RD 472 and RGE RD 263. Administration has been requested to investigate and provide comment. PW COMMENT: This site is under investigation and a recommendation will be forthcoming.

SRM 1855 – Pending: Requested by Councilor J. Bishop to investigate the need for a stop sign at the intersection of TWP RD 474 and RGE RD 263. There is currently a Dead End/No Exit sign posted and a Curve Ahead sign posted just south of the speed curve. PW COMMENT: Traffic Control Device Bylaw does not indicate that a stop sign was posted there previously. This site is under investigation and a recommendation will be forthcoming.

Division 5

SRM 1876 – Pending: Requested by Councilor K. Adair, who was contacted by Cliff Stone. Mr. Stone would like to bring to attention the terrible condition of RGE RD 281. This road is almost impassable and has been that way for some time. Mr. Stone would also like to know the status of the fence line clearing NW 24 45 28 W4M as well as the status of the culvert at lowering or leveling NE 23 45 28 W4M.

PW COMMENT: The Road Foreman reports that RGE RD 281 is fine; the culvert does not need to be lowered as the infrastructure is not compromised. With regard to the brushing, there is a small pile of ash and wire that will be cleaned up.

There were no updates for Divisions 2, 3, 6 and 7.

Councilors unanimously accepted the report for information.
