[ARCHIVED] Fall Gravelling Program

On September 11, 2018, Council approved the rescheduling of its annual gravelling program for Divisions 1 through 4 from winter 2019 to September and October, 2018.  The County will be evaluating the merits of fall gravelling using the following criteria comparing:

•    Wear and fatigue on equipment, staff and contractors;

•    Mobilization costs  between fall and winter;

•    Gravel loss due to snow removal;

•    Material handling costs because aggregate is thawed, resulting in potential lower processing costs.

Routes are preplanned and a water truck will be available for dust control, if required.  The County is also aware harvest is continuing and will work with farmers to ensure their progress is not delayed.   Should you have any questions, please contact Neil Powell @ 780-361-6230 or via email @
