Column: from the desk of Public Works

By Claude Valcourt

As reality is about to set in terms of winter approaching, a few projects are being completed or will be undertaken shortly as we wrap up construction season for this year. Trees will be planted along the new trail on 100 Street in order to provide a better delineation between the road and the trail as part of our beautification plan. The outdoor shelter project to accommodate a “change space” for the Spray Park users in the summer and the outdoor skating rink during the winter is almost complete. The shelter is now in place and has a washroom, benches, seats, lighting and venting. It will be barrier free once the ramp is constructed. Due to design requirements to improve the shelter, it will now be ready for this winter season as opposed to this past summer as originally hoped.

Also, we would like to remind residents of Morinville to remove any driveway curb ramps prior to snow removal operations as we have requested in the past. Public Works will also provide sand for residents to use on sidewalks adjacent to their property which will be available in containers at the entrance of our shop on 107 Street similar to last year. Stay safe!
